With sincere gratitude for those who take the time to read, like and share. Those who have come, not yet and who are on their way. To those who inspire, are inspired and/or merely enjoying a dance with inspiration. To all this I give thanks.
For each new day and setting of the same, for beginnings and ends, and everything in between. To all this I give thanks.~Ani Po
Magnanimous people have no vanity, they have no jealousy, and they feed on the true and the solid wherever they find it. And, what is more, they find it everywhere.~Van Wyck Brooks
With gratitude in our hearts we look not into short comings of life but blessings of such, not down on people but lift them up, not at the darkened clouds but rainbows which follow. Foreseeing lack we merely confirm lack within the canvas, witness abundance and it will forever flow.
Strength restored with gratitude in our hearts.~Ani Po
Our own strength comes from feeling gratitude for daily lessons, daily outcomes and the mere breath of our day. It is through attitude of gratitude our power increase with every breath.
Practicing attitude of gratitude we gain much strength to tackle any tasks, conquer any feats and overall well-being. With each new day, exercising gratitude, we share gratitude with others…giving away our strength to others. In lifting ourselves up, we are lifting others up and vice versa.
Just for today I will try gratitude for even the littlest of things…Ani Po
Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.~A.C.Benson
Too often looking outwardly, interpreting what we see. Judging good versus bad, pretty versus ugly, joyous and angry. Merely our own interpretation. Finding ourselves in an uncomfortable situation or in a difficult jam, frozen in our own fear or further judgment.
Being present in any given situation possibly amidst chaos or despair, but no longer affected by sadness. Being present in any given situation we are free to interpret whilst remaining in peace if we so choose.
Maybe there is a co-worker who annoys the tar out of you, or they just don’t get it?! What if…it is they who get it and you whom fail to see truth? Skewed by anger, we only see others as needing to change.
Maybe we spend too much time trying to correct others for varying beliefs, by our standards, and not enough time enjoying what the Canvas of Life has to offer. Seeing differences, celebrating beauty…we shift our thoughts from self to global consciousness. In all the varying colors painted upon the Canvas, we rejoice at the many thoughts and ideas that assemble into one.
Instead of looking how to change things, ask how can we change? Instead of changing scenery, how can we change ourselves?
Stepping into the Canvas with a new perspective…a change of self. We are not to change any one person in the world but merely ourselves. While there is nothing to be done, if there is…it is with self-realization.
