Gratitude so many people have written about it, my extra words on the subject could be like writing on the water, get lost in the sea of words or be imprinted onto your soul.
Only time will tell, only you the reader really knows that.
As a writer, I can only do my best to relay with words what I understand.
And I understand this.
Gratitude cannot be forced, or expected.
It comes from the heart
I feel grateful as a result of an exchange of energy when the giver has no expectations from me
Do you know what I mean?
Gratitude requires a PRESENCE
Whenever I have been present to myself, my surroundings, my partner, my children, my family, my friends, my body, the air around me and within me, the earth around me and within me and the fire around me and within me and the water around me and within me and the plants around me and within me and the animals around me and within me and present to this Unseen Intelligence that connects us all, then I feel this immense feeling of GRATITUDE, there is this swelling in the heart and this expansion of the lungs and this IMMENSE DESIRE to express the Thanks from the rooftops
This presence though mostly is transient and short lived
You would have read this before
The greatest gift is the PRESENT
And as a High Achiever who spent most of life wanting to achieve SO many things like yesterday I am grateful in these last few years that I am MORE present within myself and with others and with my surroundings
Because being grateful for what I do have has helped me stop looking at what I don’t have and so I have slowed down the pace that I was living my life
From this fast paced life, I had most of my life actually four decades. In fact, I now have this steady paced life that means I am not chasing this dream or that dream trying to achieve the impossible.
I finally am grateful for the dreams I have achieved
Yes that is what being grateful actually helps you attain which arises from abstention from digital devices
The abstention arises from the meditation
And the more grateful we are the more at peace we feel.
And the more at peace you feel the more balanced you feel
Yes Gratitude stands for G in the M.A.G.I.C.A.L method that I have developed that helps you gain peace and balance.
