“Thank You” – The Practice 感恩的练习

“Thank You” – The Practice 感恩的练习

Being grateful doesn’t take much effort at all

Just a genuine “thank you” from the heart is enough

This sincere gratitude could be expressed with the words itself,

Or a smile, a simple nod of the head, a playful wink

Even better, perhaps in hugs and kisses too, if appropriate

To show one’s appreciation and gratitude to another

Is to show, share and connect the love of our hearts with another

Like a bright healing light shining straight into our souls

When one is in gratitude

There is absolutely no space for fear and doubt

No room for negativity to exist

When we are filled with gratitude

Love floods our blood

It melts the heart

Warms the body

Softens the face

Calms the mind

Heals the soul

The very atmosphere itself is soothed

This pure and genuine Love that resides in every one of us

Is the flame that breathes into our very soul and keeps us alive

If the Life Force Energy / Prana within ourselves has a quality

To me it would be the quality of Love Energy

Love is the very essence of Life

Without Love is without Life

Hence, I invite you to begin your practice if you haven’t already

Just close your eyes and do this simple practice whenever you have a brief moment

It could be done the first thing upon waking up in the morning or before going to bed

Or during your morning coffee, before you begin or after enjoying a meal

Perhaps even when just walking down the street

This could be a wonderful way of completing your meditation or other practices

Anytime, anywhere is the perfect moment to practice

Say a silent “thank you” to yourself for being here

Send your gratitude for those who made it possible for you to be here

Extend your gratitude to loved ones, total strangers

As well as to those who may have hurt you for lessons learnt in this lifetime

Extend the same gratitude to animals, plants, all living creatures

That colour our lives and make our world so much more meaningful

Start practicing and watch how the heart softens and open up

Notice how beautifully humbling it is as you surrender your ego to this grace

Revel in awe of the miracles that occurs as you deepen your practice

Marvel at this profoundly simple gift of gratitude and love

As you continue on your journey of self-discovery

While reconnecting your soul with other sentient beings all around us

You realize you have come home –

To the heart of all hearts,

The Universal Love Energy
