“An Opportunity” by Mary Morrissey

Isaac Newton once said that if two angels were sent down from heaven –one to conduct an empire and the other to sweep the streets –they would feel no inclination to change employment.

An angel would know that no matter what the task at hand, each moment holds an opportunity to bring light, to bring joy –to deepen our understanding and to expand our life.

The smallest moments in life can be food for our spiritual quest. If you are waiting in line at the DMV you can use that time to notice the people around you. Witness how you feel when you start to get cranky, or see whether you can change that irritation into a happy moment. Get to know a neighbor in line or just stand there, savoring a peaceful moment and taking a deep breath.

Every single moment can be food –even the smallest moments –food for our spiritual growth.

Find The Nourishment,
