“Gratitude allows us to receive the gifts of life & invites us to unwrap these gifts.”
We easily connect with gratitude when life is smiling at us and we received something we wanted. But when we receive something that is needed, gratitude can be far away. It is by turning our attention inwards that we start to discover a deeper sense and meaning of gratitude.
Gratitude takes us on a journey from our heads into our hearts. Too often, our virtues remain a mental concept. But they have the potential to transform into a felt sense experience that support us on the journey. When we thank the other it has often more to do with our learned behavior of politeness than a felt sense of gratitude.
We can practice the attitude of gratitude for every experience. Trust is the very foundation of that. Only when our experiences are different than what we had in mind, we can learn about ourselves. Whatever happens, we can be grateful that life is showing us that part of ourselves. Once we are conscious of this part, we obtain a new choice in the co-creation of our reality.
Life is about how we act & react to what happens on the dance floor. The more we become conscious, the better our ability to respond. Yes, expanded consciousness comes with a bigger response-ability & that’s a good thing.
Most of our learnings happen when we fall, but only when we get up again. Being grateful for falling is difficult in the beginning. It takes time. But only by dancing can gratitude transform into a felt sense experience. Gratitude allows us to receive the gift of creation so we can start to unwrap it.
“Discovering & offering our gift of creation to the world is our highest act of gratitude towards life. It brings us in touch with devotion.”
