Word of the Week: Grace


July 1, 11 Nelson park pics 017

“Grace is the effortless flow of existence; love and favor freely bestowed on us.

That comes when we are living in harmony with life, when the rhythms of your body-mind are in synch with nature’s rhythms.

To live in grace is to experience that state of consciousness where things flow and your desires are easily fulfilled. Grace is magical, synchronistic, coincidental, joyful. It’s the good-luck factor.”

from the book:

Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra


When I first read this passage, it rang so true, for me. I stopped and read it over, again and again.

If I could have just one wish come true, it would be to find and continue to live in a state of grace, as described here.

This truly sums up the desires and wishes of my heart.It sounds like pure bliss, doesn’t it?


PS: I’m resurrecting my: Word of the Week, post category and will be sharing a new word each week that I hope will be an inspiration to you. Some new, some from the MPP archives and some from one of my previous blogs: Take a Happy Break, that is no longer active. 

I find it helpful to have a particular word/phrase to contemplate, throughout a week, I hope you will too. 🙂

Wishing you a wonderful week, filled with grace.
