steindl-RastA blessed New Year to you and to all those close to your heart!

Let’s open our eyes and recognize 2014 for what it really is:
A wonderful tree heavy with harvest — every day of all four seasons.
And let’s practice the trick for harvesting this abundance of gifts.
The trick is: STOP / LOOK / GO — the recipe for grateful living.

Stop! — so that you will not hurry past the gift this moment offers you.
Look! — so you will recognize this gift: the opportunity available now.
Go! — that means: Do something with this precious opportunity!

Practicing stop, look, go! — over and over — that is the recipe for true joy.
May you experience this joy that springs from living gratefully, in 2014.

For all of us at A Network for Grateful Living (ANG*L),
Your brother David Steindl-Rast O.S.B.
