Gratitude, a quality that is a must to live a good life. A quality that makes both the giver and the receiver happy. Somebody helped me and I forgot about it. Somebody helped me and I remembered it and said thanks. What is better? Many of us forget to thank. We take everything for granted. We take help as our right.
How many of us express gratitude towards mother Earth for allowing us to live on it? How many of us express gratitude towards the great Sun for giving us its light and warmth? How many of us express gratitude to water for hydrating us? How many of us say thanks to flowers for making us feel positive? Most of us take these for granted. We don’t express gratitude to our own bodies to survive in this world. Gratitude has a great vibration. It makes one who expresses gratitude feel very good due to the frequency contained within the word, this was scientifically proven by a Japanese scientist, Masaru Emoto, and his book 2004 New York Times Best selling book The Hidden Messages in Water.
Try saying the word ‘Gratitude’ and you will find your heart filling with warmth. We usually take for granted the people closest to us. In our fast-paced society, people are forgetting the art of saying thank you. By receiving thanks, the recipient feels appreciated and of value.
Why should we miss even the smallest opportunity to express gratitude for small and big things in our life? It costs us nothing. But it is invaluable. Even the smallest aspect of our lives deserves gratitude.
Life is already a mind field of complex situations, emotions, and events. It’s tough for all of us. There is little charm left for many of us in the routine of work, eat, sleep, repeat. That is why giving gratitude brings an appreciation even in the mundane. Like a rainbow in the sky, an expression of thanks and gratitude decorates the heart of the giver and the recipient.
The way rain quenches the dry earth, gratitude quenches the desires of hearts to feel good. It quenches the thirst of the hearts to be loved and experience belonging and a sense of value. Let us all express our heart-centered gratitude and make our beautiful Earth a better place.
