One can do this walking around any room, taking very small, contemplative steps. After the word is read, one small step is taken. Then the world “gratitude,” “love,” or some other is repeated quietly several times. Stay for one minute with the word. Then the next step is taken, the next word is read, repeated, etc.
My first step is that of gratitude . . . for the gift of another fresh day of life.
My second step is that of love . . . for the Holy One and for all my dear ones.
My third step is that of hope . . . for the possibility of growth in each moment.
My fourth step is that of compassion . . . for all of creation and our deep connection.
My fifth step is that of generosity . . . for all that shall be asked of me this day.
My sixth step is that of laughter . . . for the joys that will refresh my heart.
My seventh step is that of patience . . . for the difficult challenges that may arise.
