“Feeling grateful for what you already have attracts more and more abundance into your life.”
Okay, I see. I have heard and read this statement for over a million times, but……..BUT I just dont feel grateful for anything at all. Yes, I have a house to live in but its not my dream home. I have a good paying job but I dont love it.
Namaste sweethearts. Welcome to another sweet and simple blog post on my website Healing Dreams. Talking about feeling grateful, I find it hard. Yes, I do. There is a lot that I want in my life and my mind remains stuck on all the glories that are missing from my life at the moment.
Writing down three things I am grateful for before going to bed seems to me a pretty useless exercise. I am sorry if I am offending anyone. But writing food, water and shelter everyday on my list does not make me feel any better. I know there are millions struggling for food, water and shelter but my mind just doesnt care.
In these hard times, it is extremely important to connect with the divine in order to realise and believe how truly blessed we are. Prayer and devotion is perhaps the only way to feel and express gratitude. Listening to prayers and participating in prayer meets nourishes the soul. I have been listening to holy verses from the scriptures and reading ancient texts. Through constant prayer and devotion I was able to see the almighty Lord Krishna as energy instead of perceiving him as a man as we usually do. I saw Kanha in love, I saw Kanha in compassion, I saw Kanha in forgiveness.
Gratitude is a divine attitude. We have a hard time feeling grateful when we are not in alignment with our inner divinity. Staying in alignment requires practice and patience. It requires constant surrender and letting go. It is perhaps the only way to find peace, bliss and relief in this chaotic world. Blessed be my loves.
