Live Life In Gratitude
Life lived in gratitude is quite different than the competitive or an ‘eye for an eye’ and a tooth for a tooth’ culture that exists in business and politics.
Research reveals that when people practice gratefulness and put it into words, they have greater joy and fulfillment in life.
The effects of living in gratitude and peace of mind can be measured in blood pressure, heart rate and cellular response. The body is an amazing biofeedback machine. What is your blood pressure? Healthy at rest blood pressure – 120/80 mmHg or less. The majority of people have blood pressure of 134/87 mmHg. My blood pressure – 100/60 mmHg.
When you live in a state of praise, peace of mind/gratitude, especially when it is verbalized—your body takes it in.
Humans thrive on the vibration of praise, peace of mind/gratitude. Native Americans express their gratitude to all life.
“Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind. Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such terrible danger? Know that you yourself are essential to this World.” — Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Nation, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe
“Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.” – Unknown Native American
“Lose your temper and you lose a friend; lie and you lose yourself.” -Hopi
Learn to live in gratitude – take one minute each hour to recognize things for which you are grateful. Write in a journal, make a mental note to yourself. Or simply allow it to reside in your heart. As you continue this practice, you will notice more things to be grateful for. You will cultivate that awareness, expanding the possibility of more and more opportunities for gratitude.
In this daily Thanksgiving, remember to be thankful for Native Americans, whose homeland insurgents over took. Remember the bounty you have received as your ancestors’ descendents. Through your thanks invite the flow of abundance and honor it with your gracious stewardship and sharing with others as the Native Americans did for your ancestors.
“We return thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us. We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water. We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases. We return thanks to the corn, and to her sisters, the beans and squash, which give us life. We return thanks to the bushes and trees, which provide us with fruit. We return thanks to the wind, which, moving the air, has banished diseases. We return thanks to the moon and the stars, which have given us their light when the sun was gone. We return thanks to our grandfather He-no, who has given to us his rain. We return thanks to the sun, that he has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye. Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in whom is embodied all goodness, and who directs all things for the good of his children.” An Iroquois Prayer
