What a wonderful essay! It brought to mind a few of my own travel experiences that had sparked an overwhelming sense of gratitude, like the coral fish swimming around me while I was snorkeling in Indonesia or when I camped out in the Moroccan desert under a blanket of stars. Those magical moments made me appreciate nature’s beauty and the wonder of life at such a deeper level. Thanks Nicos.
The idea of love is so often associated with feelings that we forget that actions really do count much more. Without positive actions between two people who love one another, feelings don’t really matter that much. I really enjoyed this well-developed essay and its focus on love as action.
Thank you so much for sharing this thoughtful essay. I am inspired to actively begin my own gratefulness practice with your suggestion – 3 things for which I’m grateful, every single day.
Such a beautiful and creative way to address our every day activities – whether conscious or unconscious.
I too loved the holistic thinking section. It is refreshing to know that a serious awareness of the Modern Elders is beginning – although I think Chip is still quite a very young Elder. 🙂
