How to Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude? | #iFeelGratitude | Spirit of Gratitude


if we wish to become cheerful optimistic
and hopeful if we wish to eradicate negativity pessimism and gloom from
within ourselves what can enable us to do this all we need to do is to count
our blessings and we have so many of them agreed there are deficiencies in
our life everybody is cup is half empty but how
can we forget that it is also half full tell a child thank your father for all
that he has done for you the child says he is doing his duty his father did it
for him he is doing it for me what is the big deal this is ingratitude in the
same way we too have received so much the eyes with which we see the ears with
which we hear the earth we walk upon the air that we breathe the food that we eat
you see unhappiness is not a reality it is only the way we think and happiness
is only a shift in her emotions to be happy remember all the different gifts
that we have received and to feel gratitude in our hearts for them
now you may say Swamiji what ultimately have I received let me tell you the
story of one man who was always whining about the deficiencies in his life until
one day an itch started in his eyes that completely transformed his perspective
he went to the doctor and the doctor diagnosed it as a cancerous growth for
which the eyeballs would have to be removed otherwise the growth would
spread in his body this man was shattered on the appointed
hour he entered the surgery ward with this thought that when I come out I will
have no eyes however when the doctor entered his eyes he found out that it
was just a rare fungus behind the retina he cleaned it up and stitched back his
eyes finally when this man’s bandages were opened he discovered that he could
still see now he was thankful to God for the gift of sight we have received these
two instruments fitted with a hundred million receptors each with the help of
which we can enjoy the glory of the crimson sky in the Setting Sun relished
the majesty of an eagle in flight enjoying the entire spectrum of seven
colors of that aesthetic rainbow like that we have received
so many wonderful blessings let’s turn our attention to the end and then as we
stop whining about the cup that is half empty we will be so overwhelmed by the
half-full gifts we have in our life that we will find a hundred million reasons
to be cheerful to be optimistic to be enthusiastic so let us start a wave of
gratitude not only for ourselves but in the entire world the community around us
let us offer this wonderful gift to our near and dear ones enable them to become
cheerful by remembering their blessings by feeling gratitude and thereby
creating a ripple of the wave of gratefulness which will spread true from
the individual to the family to the community to the entire world and bring
about a paradigm shift in the way we feel the way we think and the way we
become by exercising this muscle of gratitude
in the etheral heart that we all possess I invite you to feel the maximum
grateful you can and to bestow this gift upon your near and dear ones you

  3. We all get so caught up in everyday life with problems at work, issues with kids, challenges with spouse, etc. that we forget to be thankful for the graces that have been bestowed upon us. With this video, #SwamiMukundananda brings us back to valuing the simple things in life.
