Gratitude

Some of us go through entire life complaining and not notice that life is a gift. We get so engrossed in our day to day activities that we fail to notice the magic that life gives us free of cost!!

How many times do we notice the early morning sky, the grandeur of sunset,the flock of birds passing by..the miraculous colours of a flower & leaves..

Lets take a deep breath and be thankful for this life. Our own body is a marvel of intelligence. The way its design, it knows exactly how to pump blood in the heart, how many times the heart needs to beat and how to digest. Our body has more intelligence then we can comprehend and do we ever wonder what have we done to deserve this? This life, this body and everything that comes with it.. It is a gift.

Whichever muscle works more, becomes stronger, we can either complain or be grateful, we decide.

  1. The Mike Baldwin’s picture sums up everything what’s going wrong with our life.

    I have an unexplained fascination for SKY. It says a lot to us but we, trapped in our day to day life, can’t seem to notice it

    Sunrise motivates us to start our day with positivity.

    Clouds remind us that there shall be obstacles to challenge your inner being but it isn’t as powerful as us, like clouds aren’t stationary, problems too doesn’t hold stand chance to stay long.

    Sunset urges us to introspect how our journey have been throughout the day and find possible good memories.

    Moon (During full moon) inspires us to feel free, rest, be creative and dance to the trance and rejuvenate & during new moon, teaches us to be patient in order to achieve desirable manifestation.

  4. Gratitude to the almighty that he has given us an opportunity to be his ‘highest form of creation” – an opportunity to become one with him…

    Gratitude to your mother, father to bring you into this world to achieve ‘liberation’ from “Punarapi Marnam & Punarapi Janmam”!

    Gratitude to all your friends, relatives, fellow human beings and other living beings…

    Can we achieve that goal that the God has set for us? – is the main question…
