In a small scale, Keep listening, actively listening, trying especially when I am with those people that I don’t like.
Maybe who I don’t like is suffering and her/his pain is at the roots of her/his bad attitude.
Speaking of social, environmental, political scale, it is harder, for me.
So, i try to learn from Mother Teresa, thinking that what I do, what everyone does in his/her private life, has an effect on the world. May I hold in my heart and in my mind a good descernment when I make my choices.
Thanka also to you Palm and to Gargi!
Dear BKC I came here thanks to a video from Brother David that my English teacher suggested to me.
My husband knows that I visit gratefulness.org, because I often speak to him about the wonderful insights I read. He tells me that I have changed my attitude since I practice gratefulness. My husband is like yours, but to tell the truth, I like being here by myself. He has never asked to visit this site together with me. One reason is the language because he didn’t learn English, other reasons are that he likes visiting different websites, above all music, and scientific or daily news. He enjoys that, and I think that this is his own way to be grateful.
Enjoy your evening wherever you are dear BKC, I am looking for a little cool in the night after a very very very warm day! Weird climate here!
It is actually a charming video Eric! For me it is not a problem if you have posted a video from your site. I have enjoyed it!
I am sorry for your friend Gina and also for your own pain. There are no words. Know that I think of you.
May the world that doesn’t love migrants listen to your words and treasure them; may all migrants take these words to empower their strength and to use this strength with wisdom and courage.
Thank you Eric for your words. I like so much when you say that waking up in the morning is a deep spiritual experience.
Good Gina, music is a joy!
Dear Bkc, since I practice gratefulness I have noticed the same things, for instance the smiles of strangers people, the light in their eyes if my greetings are followed by a smile. People are mostly bad if we want to see that in them, trying to make us sure that everything goes wrong and we are the only wise man/woman that can judge. If we let this attitude grow inside us, we can easily become the victims, and as a logic consequence, the persecutors of other people. Gratefulness, awareness and true humility bring us freedom.
Dear Gargi, my brother-in-law is a math professor in one of the University of Milano and he is atheist. It seems that he can’t break the wall of his scientific perspective in front of stunning places. It seems that he only seeks for the rational aspects of what he is seeing.
I don’t know his heart but for me it is not easy to speak to him, because, while I am interested in the scientific meaning of events, I am also taken by wonder, by awe, and also by phantasy…imagination…
Our nature is a rich mixture of body, mind, heart, soul. A good balance is the door of peace and wisdom.
Pilgrim! Dear friend, happy birthday! And what a beautiful prayer, i will copy it on my private journal. I hope that you are well, and that your days are filled with love, light and spiritual knowledge. I always find a lot of teachings in your posts.
Dear Gargi your new icon is wonderful. It is.the beginning of your new journey. Be well, and take care, new friend!

Dear KC, your words remind me a famous prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi: “my Lord make me an instrument of Your Peace”…thank you.
