The Value of Gratitude

” 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”

Buddha

The Gratitude Prayer

The seeds of my happiness ‘today’ were planted ‘a year and a half ago.’

The seeds of my happiness ‘a year and a half from now’ are being planted ‘today.’

The Seed of Being Transcends What I am Seeing

As discontent Plays Its Way into Divine Countenance

Nothing to be counted

Water bucket is empty

Always filling with any

I Am flowing Reality

All I am…is Now

I smile because I am This Sunny Cosmos

I am so Grateful

I am so Blessed

Thank you. Thank you

How may I serve….?
