Day 65 of 100 - Gratitude that blossoms in moments shared together

Updated: Jan 5, 2023

I can't get over how much I love doing things together.

For the longest time, I identified as an introvert and created this idea in my mind that I liked being away from people. I thought about it, I spoke about it, I lived it, I became it.

But there was always a deep loneliness in my heart, and a longing to be with others I could connect with.

This made me really arrogant and judgemental to others. It was a terrible characteristic.

Everything is more beautiful when it's together....

Now with my meditation friends, we do a lot of things together, and it's really beautiful community. I've found that when we're learning together, growing together, achieving together - gratitude really blossoms.

My friend from New Zealand David is also writing a blog, and he spoke about the Pohutukawa tree in New Zealand as the native Christmas Tree.

"Just for a few weeks in December / January, the tree turns its Christmas lights on!"

David's photo of the Pohutukawa tree - it's just splendid!

I was blown away by its beauty and timeliness!

My friend Robin is from Korea and on her blog she spoke about the Korean national flower!

"I love how the Korean national flag and the national flower both represent ideas about Truth and eternity."

The Korean national flower from Robin's blog -

It made me wonder what the Australian national flower is. According to google, turns out that it's the golden wattle.

"When in flower, the golden wattle displays the national colours, green and gold. As one species of a large genus of flora growing across Australia, the golden wattle is a symbol of unity."

Unity! One of my favourite things. It's why I named this Coexistence.... Unity is the true shape of my heart.

A true blossoming of togetherness is coming

I believe with deep conviction that Australia will be an instrumental player in the unity of the world.

The old world of borders, separation and divisions is dead in my mind. There is only unity and togetherness.

Being together with everyone and with nature is just so wonderful!

There is so much gratitude towards everyone and nature, now that my mind is not locked inside of my thoughts.

A summer thunder storm - the accumulation of 13.8 billions years...

And as the rain pours down, and the thunder rolls by, it resonates together with my heart. The echo of 13.8 billion years in each clap of thunder, undivided from that infinite emptiness...

My heart is overwhelmed with gratitude.
