I belong to a group that meets one Saturday per month . . . It's a very esoteric group, and we get into some fascinating topics . . . At any rate, L'air (the miracle man I've written about a few times) is a part of it, as is a man named Don . . . We were discussing this and that, and we came around to a discussion about gratitude, and the human tendency to take things for granted . . . The question that arose was, why does it seem to be a part of the human condition to take things for granted, and not instead express conscious gratitude for those things we're taking for granted?
L'air has a completely different view of life since he's undergone his incredible Journey since November 2010 . . . He's far more grateful for everything in his life than he ever was . . . Don lost his wife to a heart attack in the winter, and he spoke of that event making him more grateful for things which he realizes he's taken for granted . . .
So, the obvious question is, why aren't we ALL more grateful? I'm probably no less guilty than anyone . . . Why isn't everyday Thanksgiving, in a sense? Perhaps it can be, if we develop some kind of simple daily ritual taking a few seconds to consciously express our gratitude . . . People who are grateful tend to be happier people in general . . . They tend to be more kind, more giving, more compassionate . . . My last post was about the inspirational Curtis Jackson, a homeless man who is giving his money to a woman and her son who are in need . . . My guess is that Curtis Jackson IS consciously grateful for what he has . . .
Life is beautiful baby!
Peace and love . . .
Until next time . . . Ciao!!
