This image can be interpreted in many ways. However, if you look at the face of this gentleman, in his body language and the fact that the toilet is closed, we can guess what is happening here. I’m sure most of you already see where I’m heading. It’s exactly what I want to talk about today.
How to be grateful for what you have?
The toilet can be a great portal to…. nothing in “special,” there is no spiritual mystery behind a toilet, and I will not talk about toilets! I’m talking about being grateful… for the toilet? Of course! And for the oxygen, you’re breathing, and for the clothes, you are wearing, or even for having ears that help you to perceive the beauty of music (or one of my meditations!)
When they give us something, we feel grateful. When we get a tip, we feel grateful. When we turn the warm air in our car (especially if it is snowing), we are grateful. You probably feel thankfulness in your hearts for the person who has given you a gift, or perhaps for life itself, because you have been able to develop a dedication that has helped you pay for that warm car. And if it is not, it’s time to start doing it.
Life on earth is a great challenge. I cannot say that it is an easy or difficult challenge… each person has their goals and objectives; therefore, it is different for everyone. But we all know very well that the life of the human being is not a path of roses. Throughout history, we have been complicating our lives. Luckily or unfortunately, we have set up a society based on competition, envy, and fear. They educate us to compete, to be better than the neighbor and to understand that if we stop fighting or we do not follow the system, they will eliminate us (in every way). Civility educates us to thank other people when they help us (something we should not stop doing). However, we have not been educated to go further. Negative situations always have an unpleasant impact, some of them seriously affecting the person’s life. Society and fear have programmed our minds to perceive and foster the negativity, the uncertainty of tomorrow and, perhaps in a way, the envy of those things that we cannot obtain or experience.
Why is it good to be grateful?
For this reason, the tendency to be unhappy about negative things, or even for what you do not have (or have little) has gained a lot of strength, especially in recent decades. Without realizing it, we blind ourselves with what we do not have, and we do not know how to be grateful for what we do have. For example, when was the last time you felt grateful to have a toilet at home? Probably during an emergency! But … any day, maybe when you wake up in the morning (by the way, did you feel grateful to have a bed?), and go to use the toilet, has it crossed your mind something like “how good it is to have a toilet, how grateful I feel “? Yes…? No…? And the toilet paper or the shower?
Well … it’s in the morning; it’s ok … you have to get out of bed, take a shower … soap and hot tap water and everything is taken to the plumbing. Although the water only comes out warm because the heater (thank you!) is crap, because there is little pressure or because the soap (thank you!) does not smell as good as the one advertised on the TV. Today’s toothpaste is easy to use, and we can also put it in the cabinet with the rest of things … I could go on, but this article is already being a long one! But this topic is very important. Every word in bold is something we should be grateful for. Very ordinary things, like water that we do not appreciate, but they are blessings that make life easier for us and, unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to have it at home. Even so, we can go further, for example, the atmosphere, the sun, oxygen … things that all human beings on Earth need (and have) to live.
Discover living a life of gratitude.
When we lack the air (getting out of the water) or when we have cramps, we feel very grateful. It is important to focus on all the good things we have in life no matter what our neighbor has. The only thing certain in this life is death, nothing more. No one can certify that tomorrow we will have a toilet available. Therefore, we must be grateful while we have the luxury of having things like a toilet, running water, etc.
The energies attract each other. If negativity reigns in your heart, you will attract negativity. That’s why I made this entrance. There are moments in life where we are not happy, there are many challenges on this plane, maybe too many, but if we are here, it is because we have decided it and now we have to do our best. For this reason, it is important to look for “small things” that greatly improve our daily life. Although a little hint of thanks (thanks for the fridge, where I can store food and keep it cold). This will create positive energy in our heart, and perhaps, we already have enough positive energy to attract that new heater to change the old one. Now there is one more thing to be thankful for, the new heater. Next time, that glimpse will be bigger, storing more positive energy in our heart and with the ability to attract even more things (so you have more things to be grateful for.)
And, we create a positive magnetism where we affect those around us. If those around us have a heart full of gratitude, it will also benefit us. That energy will grow reciprocally and exponentially since little by little gratitude and abundance will also be greater.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
As I have been writing, the Universe gave me a great idea (something I often ask, thank you, thank you, thank you) for creating a meditation that will help you fill your heart with gratitude. This meditation works at a conscious and subconscious level (it has subliminal positive affirmations) so no matter your mood, this meditation will start your chain of abundance, which will exponentially grow. You can read a little more about it by clicking on the following image:
Once again, thank you very much to everyone who has been reading my entries. This is one of the keys to abundance. The other key is the manifestation. You can read more by clicking here: Hacking the Law of Attraction.
And that is all! Next week the horse, an amazing creature full of feelings… massive heart. But… that will be, next week! See you then 🙂
Much Love & Light.
Lots of blessings and abundance your way!
