Angeles Arrien in her book, Living in Gratitude, identifies four quadrants in life through which we come to experience spiritual growth and character development.
These are through Work and Creative Service; through our Relationships with friends, colleagues and family; through Health and Well-Being and through Finances.
Through our practice, she asks us to consider: What are you experiencing that is similar or different than in the past? What is being most activated in either your work, relationships, finances or health?
What internal insights and discoveries are you making that have strengthened your character? What are you noticing that is new, expanded or being released in each of these aspects of your life? What are you grateful for in each of your life’s quadrants?
