Qi

Gratitude List 26/12/2018

Last night, during a game of Scrabble, I remembered a very handy word. A word I knew was in the dictionary (because I’d used it in a previous game) but had no idea what it meant. For validation I was asked to Google the meaning. This is what I found in the Oxford dictionary:

‘The circulating life force whose existence and properties are the basis of much Chinese philosophy and medicine.’

And….

‘Origin

From Chinese ( Mandarin dialect) qì, literally ‘air, breath’.’

Jedi talk comes to mind but there’s also much resonation with how I would describe my higher power. When I connect I feel I am connecting with a force that flows through everything.

Today I am grateful for that feeling.
