Amazing Grace

by Anne Malatt, Australia

I woke this morning feeling amazing. There was nothing in the way of this feeling, so I lay there and enjoyed it. The feeling welled up from deep in my heart and filled my being. It flowed up and down my spine and I felt it cracking and popping into place. It flowed down my arms and I felt them relaxing and releasing. My fingers tingled and my palms grew fiery. It flowed down my legs to my feet and out my soles. It filled my head, which felt much lovelier than what usually fills it.

I held my sleeping partner, and I felt the same amazingness in him. As I lay there feeling how amazing he was, my amazingness grew and our two hearts beat as one.

Everything felt amazing, except the mosquito, which started buzzing around our heads. I then had a choice ­– to focus on this or to continue to allow myself to feel amazing. I chose me, which was amazing.

The feeling grew, and I felt so amazing that I wanted to get up and share it with the world. As I moved, the feeling flowed through my body. Every move I made was a confirmation and celebration of that feeling.

As I sit here watching and listening and feeling the day dawn, I can feel that same feeling in everything… in everyone… that amazing grace, that love, that we all are.

  1. This is very beautiful to feel what you’ve written. We can choose to feel our amazingness. There was a lovely grace I felt today when I woke. Despite a late night and eating rubbish, I woke up feeling lovely. I could see how I could go in for self bashing for my night’s choices but I was getting that I’m ok, no matter how late I went to bed, or what rubbish I’d watched on TV I was still amazing. I could see an old habit of thinking I was defective and needed to hide this secret defective part of me (as yet unidentified) from the world. What if I lived from feeling how lovely I am instead and accepted all of me, all my past choices etc. with love and understanding? Even I’d want to be with me 🙂

    1. There was a time when I did have a hangover and I can say there is nothing quite so wretched in that feeling. I was at that time choosing a way to live from a very limited set of preset choices based on a lack of self love for myself and all others. As I have re learnt how to reconnect back to the love that dwells inside me that I rejected and regained my self respect and integrity the need for alcohol just melted away because what I felt and still feel in my body is far more important than trashing it.

  2. As I sit here in a cafe in Cambodia, feeling the effects of a week of later than usual nights and foods I wouldn’t normally eat, I appreciate that I know this amazingness too and that it is in all of us when we choose to live in a way that supports it. I also know that it is not meant to be enjoyed in isolation and grows when it is shared.

  3. To focus on the mosquito or on you and your amazing partner – what a choice! I always find it very difficult to focus on me when i see a fly or a mosquito which annoy the hell out of me. But it’s because I always think that I have to fix everything, so if I see a fly, i think that i have to get rid of it, otherwise i can’t feel content in myself – what a lie! The feeling of contentment comes first and foremost from us, and then our environment becomes less important.

  4. Such rare moments of grace in the light of everyday’s struggles and challenges most experience and would consider being their normal are very special and extraordinaire until we more and more get to feel that it is available at any moment if we only choose to connect to the grace and love that holds us consistently, awaiting our return to it.

  5. Exquisite sharing of the tangible truth of our oneness which can be felt when we open ourselves up and surrender to the love we are within, as then have no doubt that is the divine pulse of who we all are in essence.
