“He who is contented is rich” ~ Lao Tzu
Being deeply grateful for what you have is the key to happiness. It is believed by people who practice awareness that there are unlimited things for us to be grateful for. Gratefulness comes more easily with humility and having respect for others but with minimal or no expectations. It is important to remember that we need to focus on the good we have and not on what we don’t have.
In spiritual retreats and programs we are asked to list five or ten reasons every night for which we ought to be grateful and in just a few days beautiful changes start taking place – we feel more at peace and our anxiety levels reduce. It is also amazing that the reasons for which we need to be grateful also keep increasing more and more.
Lets welcome gratitude and contentment in our thoughts and actions and be happy. What more do we need? :)
Cheers friends and have a lovely weekend :)
