Tao of the Day  
Grace brings trust, appreciation, love and prosperity.
- Yogi tea quote



In your own words, what is grace?

And what does grace bring?

Grace... grace... how to define this?

Grace is quiet dignity, disillusioned compassion, and purposeful acceptance.

Grace is something I wish I had.

Hm. I'd say that handling a situation 'with grace' would mean that, in dealing with a sticky situation, one acts in an elegant, thoughtful way that ends up with all parties feeling good about the situation. There is an intelligence, a subtlety to grace that I very much admire and I'm finding it hard to describe. As always an interesting question, B!

I think grace is a centeredness that allows one to be gentle, open and yielding in their interactions with others.

I think it brings the graceful person a certain peace and contentedness. I think peace and contentedness comes from being opening and yielding when we find goodness in what is around us and struggle less.
