My husband said to me “Gratitude” is unconditional. Wherever we go whatever we do we should be grateful for all that we have. Being thankful to others opens doors to greater things. We often look at our lives questioning all that has happened and continue to happen. Everyone have Angels, everyone have the guidance within and we also know what is right from wrong. We all make mistakes — all of us — but when others do we should do our best to shine a light on their path not allow them to walk in darkness.
Sometimes the biggest lessons come out of the smallest problems – we try hard to see why others do what they do but in the end we need to let go of the cause. The effect is there to teach us — to bring us to a different place where you will shine more than you did before. I read once in a post — “I dont have an attitude problem – you have a perception problem” — quite true sometimes — what we perceive others to be are sometimes not what things are – depends on which side of the fense you are on. If we sit and really listen to someone sometimes you will realise that there are always a deeper root to their actions — sometimes you understand those reasons and sometimes you dont but what is important is that you listened.
So be grateful in your heart – in your actions – in your speech. There should not be conditions to be grateful — if we cultivate that in our hearts we will be grateful for everything even the things that are the hardest to comprehend. Never underestimate the abilities you have within. Let go of the situations that bring you no peace – be strong enough to be YOU — and dont let anyone define who you are.
A teacher once said in a class I am in “When you know who you are and know what you stand for” you have defined yourself. Detach he said — detach from situations and stand outside yourself and try to feel the other person. When we do this we get a sense of calm and we can smile — we detach from needless suffering.
