Re: An Attitude of Gratitude
The real test is being grateful when you get a load of crap, even more so if you were already in a crappy situation. I always try to be grateful as you never what will grow from it on the long term, at least lots of fertilizer for them seeds, creativity helps to find use for such things, makes it somewhat easier to be grateful whatever may come your way. hf

Re: An Attitude of Gratitude
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. -Melody Beattie

Re: An Attitude of Gratitude
I am Grateful that I had an opportunity this morning to help someone in their job search. I saw a post on another web site this morning from a student looking for job search advice. I was able to add my comments to the list, about a job posting I saw yesterday, and hopefully can help her find employment. THANK YOU!

Let's see. when I see the pervasive threat to those I love, personal and flora and fauna and beautiful intricate life being stomped crushed callously into the ground, about which I can do nothing to protect beyond what I ineffectually have,
I am grateful for all that hasn't been desecrated yet.

Call it anticipatory grief for all I am grateful for.

Well, that is a degree of Gratefulness, I suppose :)

But the use of these words in your posting caught my eye...

"pervasive threat"... oh, are those things REALLY being threatened in EVERY POSSIBLE WAY as you say? Or only in a lesser way, and YOU are actually amplifying that negative energy to be worse then it is?

"about which I can do nothing about"... oh, is there really NOTHING that can be done about any of the things you do not like? Nothing in the entire universe? Again, the words you use, which define your perspective, are exaggerating the scale of the issue... you are again actually amplifying the problem to be worse then it is. You are taking your own energy, and empowering a negative idea/energy, just by thinking that way/using those words...your words/thoughts do matter.

I'm picking at your language to illustrate that the words you use... the words you think with... actually form your reality. They really do. There is so much pessimism in your post that you are essentially subconsciously telling the Universe that you actually "want an experience of a truly all-pervasive threat about which you can do absolutely nothing about." That is just what you just told the universe you wanted, and in it's own way, it will bring that to you. (unless you start thinking/speaking differently).

All that said, maybe you could look at your post in a different way...aren't you Grateful for:

- the fact that you HAVE loved ones
- the fact that you can appreciate beautiful flora/fauna
- the fact that you DO have some tools at your disposal to protect them
- the fact that you even exist to be able to do this!

As I said... it's all a matter of perspective.

I am Grateful that I am continually presented with new opportunities in Life to learn more about myself, the things that I do and do not prefer, and to have the knowledge that I have the choice to choose between these things, and/or walk a middle path between them. Achieving Balance and Harmony both inside myself, and with everything else. THANK YOU!

I am Grateful that I have clean water to drink, whenever I want, for basically free. I have visited places where they are still drinking dirty surface water that collects in ponds, and they are frequently sick as a result. Having clean, fresh, abundant water is something that I am very Grateful for. THANK YOU!

Re: An Attitude of Gratitude
To BE GRATEFUL is an awesome emotion. It allows us to accept ALL THAT IS! Even when it 'seems' bad it is accepted. All the realized BEINGS on earth today have found this truth. It is self evident = don't think so much = allow the concepts to dissipate.

One who is a sincere seeker of TRUTH will surely realize that he IS THAT!

Gratitude is a way!

Life is a mystery. To quote a song "We don't always get what we want....but we always get what we need", is a truth.

I have been down and out too many times....and unexpectedly something happens....it is wild and awesome!

We do not control our destiny as we have been conditioned to think....everything just happens.... accept ALL with gratitude....for in reality we are only an observer, witness.

'Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.' - Dr. Seuss

Yes, the things that others think, say, or do will sometimes hurt you— until they do
not anymore.What will get you from here to there most quickly is total honesty—
being willing to assert, acknowledge, and declare exactly how you feel about a thing.
Say your truth—kindly, but fully and completely. Live your truth, gently, but totally
and consistently. Change your truth easily and quickly when your experience brings
you new clarity.-God

I am grateful for everything and what I have overcome.

I am grateful to be a witness to the Mother and Father Creator Source.
Yeshua/Christ Jesus/Esu Sananda/Christ Michael Aton/CM/ATON was Jesus Christ oversoul as he walked the earth,set up the Kingdom of Heaven within. To get to Father/Mother God is through your own Heart Portal, we have been gifted the HOly Spirit/HigherSelf as our guide.

Thread: Starships above my home

Love yourself, and your world will heal around you like the waves in the ocean. When One unites with the Holy Spirit/Higher Self, it becomes your mate, you are in love with the Divine within, then comes the relationship for he is the direct line to Father Source so you experience that connection, so then it becomes your rule of measure as to who knows the Father, The kingdom is within...
The Path to the New World is guilt, shame, and regret free.

Dear Father Mother God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change what I can (Me) and the wisdom to know the difference. I AM getting better everyday. Truly.......


God's dream is our Destiny...Light and Life. We can do it.
Spirituality + Technology= Balance into Light and Life.

Re: An Attitude of Gratitude
I am Grateful that I am friends with many of my neighbors, and that we look out for each other. People are ALWAYS looking for a connection with something, or someone... we want to belong to something greater then ourselves. And we do, we just don't always realize it, or in how many ways this is possible. So it is nice that, over the years, I have gotten to know many of my neighbors on a friendly basis, and say hello to them frequently.

I am Grateful for this as well... we can ALL know God in whatever way we prefer. Even if you don't want to know God, or don't believe in him/her/it, or don't have any gratitude at all etc.... that is fine too, it doesn't care. There is no judgment, just unconditional Love and acceptance.

BTW, I'm not posting these "I'm Grateful for..." threads because I feel like I have to, or because God is counting, or because I have to prove myself in any way... I do this because it something that I WANT to do, it increases my own positive vibration, and it puts me in the correct state-of-mind to be in the moment, which helps to reveal the abundance of the universe all around us. Also, ANY statement of gratitude, by anyone who wants to add to this thread or be inspired to do it in private, adds more positive energy to the world. And that is a very good thing from my perspective.
