Two Bowls of Tofu – So Grateful
I am reminded of a time when my heart is full of love. I am filled with so much gratefulness. I am with my wonderful companion, my soul mate. The ground I walked upon is a holy ground and the journey ahead full of promise of a blissful life in this Universe where everything seems easy and effortless. Together we will create a life full of happiness. I dreamed of a home for us. The children secure and happy. The horses enjoy the meadow and the big expanse of land to romp around. The river just below us. A place for warm soup in the winter time. The summers provide activities of fun and pleasure under the Sun. Springtime brings the promise of an abundance of laughter while picking flowers for the morning Sunday brunch. The freshly picked flowers on the dining table reminds me of God’s generosity for mankind. To me, springtime means a new life and every day a gift of life, fully knowing that each day ushers in new glorious experiences in this beautiful blue planet Earth.
So the holy ground has been prepared and our hearts full of reverence and gratefulness.
As we enter this newly discovered Thai restaurant in McLean, the feeling of peace was amplified and our hearts silenced waiting for the next miracle to unfold before us.
We are famished. We waited too long to break for lunch. And our search for a new place to eat took us here. Shoji screens and bamboo curtains adorned the entrance to the restaurant. We were greeted with happiness and calmness and were seated at a booth by a woman. She moved with ease and seemed at peace. The lamp hanging over the table was blue almost neon blue, very delicate and pretty. The lighting complemented my olive skin.
As we crossed the threshold to the far end of the restaurant, feeling as if we were walking on sacred ground. My soul mate signaled with his eyes for me to look up at the lamp, then took a picture of me, while I picked up the phone to speak to a client, a call I’ve been waiting for from the West Coast. He sees the beauty in everyone and everything. While observing him and listening to the call, I sent a vibration to him of appreciation and reminded me of his habit of looking up and arms in appreciation saying “Thank you, God.” My conversation was low tone and quick and explained to the person that I was in the middle of a sacred moment and I would call him right back.
We ordered two bowls of tofu. We talked about how peaceful it was in the restaurant, added to the feeling of reverence we are experiencing. We are on sacred ground.
My companion and I are in alignment speaking only with our thoughts most of the time. We were both feeling very holy. Come to think of it, every encounter with a human being, Dr. Wayne Dyer’s teachings tell me, must be a holy relationship and this moment was definitely a holy one, indeed!
The bowls of tofu arrived. The bowl of Asian design was the right size, just enough to fill our tummies and appease the hunger. The steam is very visible. I love my soup hot and steaming, almost hot enough to burn my tongue. And it was. I love it this way. The Universe once more provided me with this joyful experience. The soup will nourish my soul. We said our prayer adding to the holiness of the moment. I looked up and my companion looked at me to let me know he too was feeling it. We both smiled and continued eating in silence letting the soup continue to satiate our hunger and letting the ambiance amplify the holy atmosphere we found ourselves in.
When you are in love with the “one great man” in your life knowing you attracted him to you – love is even more rewarding – not the “jumping up and down feeling” but more like – so grateful to the Universe that “Yes!” everything is possible. The quality of our thoughts brings the result into our experiences of similar quality. Today, the Universe is no different. I am rewarded of how life should be – full of gratefulness and holiness. My fortune cookie says that “the person I am in front of is the mirror reflection of me.” How appropriate!
Love Live, Live Love
PS: Love one another in a holy way. Look around you and see who is with you. You are on sacred ground. Love them expecting nothing in return. Love and Live gloriously! You are a Deliberate Creator!
