Unfallen and graceful

As I grew up taking dance classes and playing the violin, I learned to love the grace that was so crucial to those activities. 

I love thinking of grace as a quality I express freely because it comes from divine Mind, God. If grace is a quality of Mind, then it’s not something I have to produce or earn. As God’s idea, I simply have to express it. 

I have to admit, though, sometimes I don’t feel very graceful. For example, one day several months ago, I suddenly tripped while walking on the sidewalk outside of my apartment. I landed awkwardly on my left ankle and fell to the ground. Feeling embarrassed, I quickly got up to continue walking. But when I tried to take a step, it was too painful to put weight on my left foot.
