Happy Thanksgiving week sweet readers. I hope you and your families had a day filled with gratitude, love and the spirit of the Thanksgiving tradition. Those of you who follow me on social media know, I’ve made it a personal tradition to express gratitude each day for the month of November. I do it throughout the year as well, but in an effort to not drive you crazy, keep my gratitudes in my journals.
This week I offer you two poems and a quote. I hope you enjoy the read. I invite you to share thoughts on the poems, quote and the way you cultivate and nurture gratitude in your own lives. I sincerely thank you for spending some of your time each week reading my musings and know, for you, I am…
In the life of aspiration and dedication
The gratitude-deer always runs the fastest,
Always achieves the most,
Always becomes the perfection-satisfaction
of the highest and
most fulfilling and fulfilled
Supreme in us.
Gratitude is not a human achievement.
Gratitude is a divine treasure
granted to us
by the inner Pilot within us,
The Absolute Supreme.
The moment when, after many years
of hard work and a long voyage
you stand in the centre of your room,
house, half-acre, square mile, island, country,
knowing at last how you got there,
and say, I own this,
is the same moment when the trees unloose
their soft arms from around you,
the birds take back their language,
the cliffs fissure and collapse,
the air moves back from you like a wave
and you can’t breathe.
“No,” they whisper. “You own nothing.
You were a visitor, time after time
climbing the hill, planting the flag, proclaiming.
We never belonged to you.
You never found us.
It was always the other way round.”
“Gratitude is the
reflection of kindness and
rests deep in the heart.”
~ Ken E. Hall
