Gratitude day 14: Water

The earth, the air, the land, and the water are not an inheritance from our forefathers but on loan from our children. So we have to handover to them at least as it was handed over to us.

– Gandhi

Nearly 70% of our world as well as the Human Body is water. We may be one of the most fortunate people on the planet 🌏 who have adequate water for drinking, washing, bathing, etc. Yet, there are so many amongst us who are not fortunate enough, for them water is a luxury more than a necessity!

I am grateful and conscious as Water needs to be respected as much as any other living being.

Gratitude is the sweetest thing in a seekers life – in all human life. If there is gratitude in your heart, then there will be tremendous sweetness in your eyes.

– Sri Chinmoy

Gratitude day 13: Breath

Gratitude to the first breath of the day, immediately after I have woken up.

Gratitude day 12: Rains

Blessed be the Earth whose soils are parched and lives thirsty,

For when they receive the first drop of rain,

They know not who is happier,

The thirsty souls or the clouds that bring forth the rain.

Gratitude helps you to grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.

Gratitude day 10: the humble television

As much as i have grown to be not very fond of this smart piece of invention but there are times where I watch it only for the reason to be a part of the families evening entertainment.

Tonight we watched the Chronicles of Narnia and it was a delight to watch it with my little one.

She is now exposed to the fact that there is magic in life, animals are beings and need to be respected too and are powerful. Nature is beautiful, including the trees, leaves, flowers, the rivers and the mountains!

Oh and she just said “Yes your majesty”. So she has picked up some grace too.

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.

– Buddha
