I am just grateful to be alive.
It depends on who I am speaking to and what the interaction is about. Most interactions are very general. But that is where awareness comes in. When an opportunity comes up, speak to it with the whole heart and mean every word. Withholding words is sometimes the best way to speak.
The picture of that big spider was not appreciated. I was attacked by a terrantula once. I won’t forget it.
Music. Sunshine and clear skies no matter the temp. The carefree nature of children at play.
It would keep me humble. However, there are circumstances for which we bear no fault and the key there is to find what we can be grateful for.
So very much. I started my gratitude journey. Read massive numbers of books to review on my blog. Started my blog. Started my language study via Duolingo. Got involved with Letters Against Isolation. Joined a gym through Silver Sneakers. My son reconciled with me. Enjoyed profound amounts of sunshine. What more could a person want?
Peace is present right here on this site. It is present in me every time I meditate. Peace is a sense of quietness that is right here inside us. We must allow it to pervade our little worlds and connect us to each other.
The pandemic. The Zoom chat groups in my language study on Duolingo. My own fragile health.
At the moment I can’t think of one. I generally don’t rely on quotes. Maybe my father’s idea that if you can read you can do anything. Not entirely true but almost.
How can I become more awake? I don’t think I can here on Earth. I think every day that I actively look for things to be grateful for really helps us see more. And over time that wakes us up more and more to the point where we are beings moving in the midst of a different race of beings. It is quite interesting.
During daylight hours I see the sunshine outside my window every single day. I also have a friend frontrow seat for a miraculous sunset each evening. When walking outside I smell fresh sir, see the trees moving in the wind and , if the sky is clear, am awed by blue sky. The clouds amaze me and feeling the air moving is sheer pleasure. Even if temps are in the 50s or lower and I am wrapped in heavy clothing. Still all a miracle.
I live every day in reverence. Grateful for more opportunities to look for blessings and improve my thought patterns. How does it feel? Right now it is alot of work.
My elderly friend in Seattle. Humility is something that can come with age but not always. I don’t know very many humble people.
There was someone in my life years ago. I was schocked by the strength of the love. That person has since passed on. I will never forget them.
I honestly have no idea. The only thing that comes to mind is to be a human of peace and tranquility.
The perfection of a blade if grass and if I move the grass, the dirt beneath carries life sustaining properties that I cannot see. Of course without water and sunshine it would not grow so each element needs the other in an intertwining circle. Each element depends on the other. Mix in oxygen and you have everything needed for life. Thanks be to God.
This is a perplexing question. I believe I have expanded as much as is possible in my current circumstances. My gratefulness journey helps guide me. I hope somedayy that peace and joy will decide to make their permanent abode with me.
I can’t answer that. This grateful journey is still pretty new. I know it has taght me that my thoughts are not as positive as I thought. Still learning to let go. Always more opportunities for practicing that. One big one just this weekend. Grace to adjust is always appreciated.
I don’t know. Perhaps it means to trust the process of life. Perhaps it means to trust the laws like Law of Attraction. I really don’t know.
Humility. Absolute humility. Such a wondrous machine we have been given. It is as wondrous as the earth.
This is the best explaination of the Law of Attraction I have ever heard. One I can work with. Thank you.
