Thanks giving and gratitude....
and where you are right now.
Gratitude fills your heart with the joyful feeling of being blessed with many
gifts and allows you to fully appreciate everything that arises on your path.
As you strive to keep your focus on the present moment, you can experience
full wonder of "here". Gratitude is a lesson that needs to be reinforced often.
It is too easy to overlook the gifts you have when you focus on those that you
hope to obtain, and you diminish the value of where you currently are on your
path if you do not pause often to appreciate it.
There are many ways to cultivate gratitude: Imagine what your life would be
like if you lost all that you had, this will most surely remind you of how much
you do appreciate it.
Make a list of all that you are grateful for, so that you can stay conscious daily
of your blessings. Or spend a few minutes before you go to sleep giving thanks
for all that you have.
Spend time offering assistance to those who are less fortunate than you, so that
you may gain perspective. Look for the gift in each challenging incident.
However you choose to learn gratitude is irrelevant. What really matters is that
you create a space in your consciousness for appreciation for all that you have
right now, so that you may live joyously in your present moment.
