I've just been going back into Steve Pavlina's LoA stuff to show my friend and then reading it myself... so awesome. I love this post especially. It's kind of what I already have been doing, though without being totally conscious of it; I've been working on unconditional happiness recently and this is kind of the vibe I am working on getting. Simply being grateful for everything
I wrote this blog post a while back and decided not to post it. But I feel like sharing it here. A meditation on gratitude - you can see that I was going between level I gratitude and level II:
Thank you for the computer that's in front of me, the incredible technology that lets me connect with people anywhere in the world at any moment. |
Thank you for the leasurely breakfast of tea, apples and toast I had this morning.
Thank you for the challenges ahead and the things I'm learning and am to learn.
Thank you, because this writing is flowing now in a pleasureable and lyrical way.
Thank you God for my talents and skills.
Thank you, because right now my gratitude is bringing me into the present moment and I am remembering to feel the pleasure of simply existing.
Thankyou for the vitality of my breath, this feeling of aliveness in my chest.
Thankyou for the tingling in my lips, the pleasant tapping sounds as my fingers type this, the intensity of the colour on the screen...
Thankyou for the lingering tastes of coconut milk and strawberry jam in my mouth.
Thankyou for the warmth I feel sitting on my bed.
Thank you for the incredible room you've granted me, and thankyou even more for the pleasure it'll bring me when I go and clean it now.
Thank you for the park I have near this new house, and the feeling of tranquillity and aliveness that radiates from the plants and grass and tress.
Thank you for the sun, for bright light bringing peace, a reminder that all is well.
Thank you God for warmth in times of cold.
Thank you for my health and the feeling of life in my body.
Thankyou for my imagination and mental power.
Thankyou for this post.
Thankyou for gratitude.
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou.
