Gratitude

“If you want to be rich, start rich.  What can you be grateful for today?  Who can you be grateful for today?  Could you even be grateful for some of the problems and the pain that you’ve been through in your life?  What if you took on the new belief that everything in life happens for a reason and a purpose, and it serves you?  What if you believed in your heart of hearts that life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you?  That every step along the way is helping strengthen you so that you can become more, enjoy more, and give more.  If you’ll start from that place, money won’t be the source of your pleasure and your pain.  Making money will just be a fun journey of mastery, and wealth a great vehicle to achieve what matters most in life.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game

“Meditation cannot be purchased, love cannot be purchased, friendship cannot be purchased, gratitude cannot be purchased—but nobody is concerned with these things.  Everything else, the whole world of things, can be purchased.  So every child starts climbing the ladder of ambitions, and he knows if he has money, then everything is possible.  The society breeds the idea of ambition, of being powerful, of being rich.  It is an absolutely wrong society.  It creates psychologically sick, insane people.  And when they have reached the goal that the society and the educational system have given to them, they find themselves at a dead end.  The road ends; there is nothing beyond.” ~ Osho, Fame, Fortune, and Ambition

My mom and me circa 1989

Introduction:  To mothers, we are eternally grateful.

At this point in my life I consider myself to be a grown adult, yet just last week, it took the care of my mom to get me to the doctor’s office (which I was stubbornly avoiding) so that I could get the care I needed to feel better.  I feel better now.

When I was a teenager I went through an independence/ don’t-talk-to-me phase and essentially shut my mom out.   I was cold and short with conversation but her warmth never faded.  She knew how to take a hint and never pushed, but stayed in contact enough where we didn’t grow far apart.  I eventually started to open back up.

“We have problems perceiving nonevents.  We are blind to what does not exist.  We realize if there is a war, but we do not appreciate the absence of war during peacetime.  If we are healthy, we rarely think about being sick.  Or, if we get off the plane in Cancún, we do not stop to notice that we did not crash.  If we thought more frequently about absence, we might well be happier.” ~ Rolf Dobelli, The Art of Thinking Clearly

“We often ask, ‘What’s wrong?’ Doing so, we invite painful seeds of sorrow to come up and manifest.  We feel suffering, anger, and depression, and produce more such seeds.  We would be much happier if we tried to stay in touch with the healthy, joyful seeds inside of us and around us.  We should learn to ask, ‘What’s not wrong?’ and be in touch with that.  There are so many elements in the world and within our bodies, feelings, perceptions, and consciousness that are wholesome, refreshing, and healing.  If we block ourselves, if we stay in the prison of our sorrow, we will not be in touch with these healing elements.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace is Every Step
