Spiritual Abundance-Spiritual Journey Thursday

Today, six weeks since my first cataract surgery, I eagerly returned to my yoga practice. Upon entering the session, I felt energized and knew the experience would be a renewal of mind, body, and spirit. As soon as the teacher started the session, I settled into a sacred space of quiet and peace. I listened to the soft music, the sound of my breath, and the instructor's voice. She invited us to think about the concept of abundance as we arrived on the mat. I paused to indulge in the moment. Returning to the mat was a gift, an appreciation of life. 

 Abundance Upon Arrival
Come to the mat, a sacred place of tranquility.
Feel the energy. Indulge in self-love upon arrival.
Listen to each breath and be filled with appreciation.

With much appreciation for the gift of abundance upon arrival, I offer the following scripture verse from 2 Corinthians 9:8 to close my day. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Abundance from above graces earth and all its being. Let us become aware of abundance as a heavenly gift. I am grateful and appreciative that the spirit of abundance fell upon me this morning in a serendipitous manner.

May all my readers and the Spiritual Journey Thursday community find an abundance of love this weekend. Happy Mother's Day!


Thank you author-educator Susan Koehler for hosting Spiritual Journey Thursday today and offering her thoughts in prose and poetry. You can join me at Susan's blog, Susan Koehler Writes


  1. I've been away from yoga for too long. It is such a wonderful practice that helps me feel abundance and spiritual calm. I'm glad you were able to get back to it.

    1. Margaret, I thank you for stopping by and commenting. I know that you are a true yoga advocate. I send you abundant thoughts and prayers during your pause time.

  2. Thank you, Carol, for your beautiful thoughts and words. Being sidetracked from our regular activities, and then regaining the ability to return to them, truly helps us experience the abundance in our lives.

    1. Susan, rereading your SJT post this morning inspired me to fill my day with abundance. As the sun streamed through my shutters, I penned a quick draft of a poem. I am trying to add it to my Poetry Friday post, noting that your words sparked my thoughts.

  3. I always come away from reading your posts filled with peace, Carol. They are sacred spaces inviting meditation and prayer. So glad your eyes are healing and that you're able to resume your yoga. Tranquility and gratitude ripple outward from your lines, drawing us in to abundance we can scarcely imagine!

  4. Thanks for sharing about abundance! I finally got here to read it! :-)
