Friends

A few days back, I started paying thanks to God for all the great things if I have or are happening in my life. I found that eventually, I was thankful for all the stress and trouble as instead of getting frustrated I started thinking otherwise and took it as challenges in life, the way to grow higher in our thinking...

But very few people are able to think right in troubled situations which may be an accident, unwanted relative, loss in business, hurt relations, miscommunication, etc because very few people actually practice living in gratitude.

I dont want to give a lecture on gratitude but want every one to write alteast 1 thing on this topic every day as to

WHAT YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR TODAY???


Benefits of this excercise : You will learn with practice HOW TO THINK RIGHT and start using your mind to your advantage...

Im thankful to God for giving me this Idea of starting this topic...

Im thankful that Im much Richer than the Kings 2000 years back as they did not have benefit of a mobile talking to anyone and everyone any time of the day on a click of a button at such low cost..., having a vehicle which runs faster than their horses, having a fan and air conditioner, computer to communicate my message worldwide, and many more things (to be left to be shared later )

Im thankful for this beautiful mind which works for me and the thought process which helps me making decisions and then making decisions right... and comparing what is good for me in short run and in long run and then striking a balance...

Your turn

NOTE: THis is the most powerful excercise and I m sharing this after personally applying it to my life... I could start this on the day I started practising it but I personally wanted to see that it works and it works like MAGIC.

It can do magic in ur life too... Start writing NOW, take the benefit NOW, live to the fullest NOW, have the best of life's experiences NOW...

jaspreet ji thanks for starting this great topic Star I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought,and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted,but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action.Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you.
Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.

I am really thankfull to God for each and every thing blessed to me by God. for making me a part of this Lt Family where i am able to gain a knowledege upon each every aspect of life. specially veerji  i had attended his one seminar only and it was really great his voice ,way of explanation is simply outsatnding. God has blessed me with wonderful family great kids and such a loving hubby i feel so proud to have him in my life. wonderful two friends i love them a lot may god bless them .

I want to be thankful that god gave me strength and some encouragement for social cause. But I can not speak sweet and badly known for my short-temperedness, dominant and arrogant attitude. though I myself feel that my intentions are never hurting for others………still my speech makes the worst……sometimes.

 

We all know that difficulties prove to be the OPPORTUNITIES…….in other words "we gain experience".

 

Still it is always good to be thankful for blessings, good things and …….everything.

Thank you Riya ji

Today in the morning I had a dream that I went to Registrar of Companies for some office work and when I came back, the parking guy asked me to hand him the keys of my bike and he will take it out for me. I handed him and he drove off.

Then I complained to police and tried to find bike and I WOKE UP...

I smiled and I was happy for this wonderful dream, you know why?

I m thankful today to the universe for the bike which takes me to places and helps me in achieving my bigger dreams. I m thankful for those engineers who designed this bike because ones their was time when all people had for commuting were their feet and animals...

Dear Jaspreet ji, I am glad it was a dream only and not in realty. It has happens to tourist many times. A stranger will say let me take your picture give me your camera. As soon as tourist hands the camera the stranger runs away with it. So be careful  who  you hand your keys or camera.

Today I left home 10 minutes earlier for the office and drived slowly my favorite Bike and felt the nature...

I m Thankful to the universe for creating such wonderful trees and pleasant weather and even man made creations are also worth appreciating, I passed by a few hospitals, coffee shops, bakery, beautiful houses etc. I m thankful for choosing me to observe this beauty. On the way I bowed head to the person (wearing turban) coming from forward, I was happy and he was confused

Happiness is the realization of God in the heart.
Happiness is the result of praise and thanksgiving,
of faith, of acceptance;
a quiet tranquil realization of the love of God.

In the morning the fuel of my bike was nearly empty and I managed to reach petrol pump...

IM THANKFUL for understanding the fact that when hidden minerals and hidden potential and imagination of human beings combine, it creates miracles...

Making of vehicle and use of petrol for the purpose are proof that when any human use his imagination and creativity, he benefits many...

In simple words, I m thankful for the petrol pump and petrol


(You can be thankful for anything and every thing provided you take out time to put yourself in the state of being thankful, This excercise helps me alot and if you also do, you will also be delighted... It creates vision for better future which our newspapers take away)

Saying thank you to god almighty is the most wonderful pleasure we can give ourselves .......it has a side effect of PEACEFUL heart.
recently i had been undergoing a lot of life changing circumstances which were beyond my line of control ....i was frustrated and angry and very very exhausted, trying to put sense in people around me, who were equally affected .everyone was reacting according to their character but the logics of the situation had to be the same for all concerned.and i was scared because i had taken action to recreate my life ....had i been wrong ..was i going to be ruined ... i was in sheer fear ........

one night i cried out loud to god what is happening? where is this leading .i was tortured with the pain of the fear of the unknown , because the decisions were not in my hands alone.and i cried myself to sleep
in the early hours of the morning when i was in the stupor of light sleep and my subconscious was a awake with my answer.......i went to the gurudwara and got a akhand path booked for my thanks to lord ......the granthiji asked me the purpose and i said i want to say 'thank u god for opening my minds' eyes '
the answer is ..
we are part of HIS design for all the people in the world, not the ones who live around us, but the the whole wide world , the animals, mother nature , the oceans---- everything and everyone--- god is not singling us us out for anything (( the question we sometimes ask god WHY ME is meaningless)).
that is why any action,(((however small or personal it may be))) we take today affects the whole world with its ripple effect.
but the paradox is the we
We are too tiny in HIS fabric of design to comprehend the large universal picture .we are unique , we that each that tiny stitch that god has created with extreme effort to keep his fabric together.

so i was at peace with myself and started doing only what was required of me , working hard ,within my means to finish my job and left the result on god .

AND FROM THAT DAY ONWARDS I THANK GOD EVERYDAY FOR ALL THAT HE HAS 'TAKEN AWAY' AND WILL TAKE AWAY AND ALL THE HE HAS 'GIVEN'AND WILL GIVE.

WHATEVER HAS HAPPENED AND WILL HAPPEN IN OUR LIVES MAY CAUSE PAIN OR PLEASURE I AM THANKFUL FOR BOTH....... WITH FOLDED HANDS AND BOWED HEAD.
my life has changed...i am at peace with myself .

Im happy to read your post Sheebbaa ji

Seems you have learned to handle fear of unknown...

Good work

I feel instead of getting akhand paath done my someone else, u should read and understand path yourself. That way you will benefit more. This can be a better way of showing your thankfulness and you will also benefit more through the teachings of our revered Guru.

Lastly, I m happy that you understand God gives us to enjoy and takes back to get us learn something new in life...

Sheba ji, I am really glad that you have found happiness and peace is in your self. No one, I mean no one, not out parents, our spouses, Our children, wealth, things no one or no thing can give us peace or happiness, only we have to find peace within us. what ever Almighty has stored for us will happen we just have to accept it as "Rabh da bhana' and we will find peace in our heart and mind will feel at rest.

love and hugs ji   meain hun na.....hahahah.

Yesterday night, their was some problem with Power supply for the whole floor and no power point switches were working. Thus, no Air Conditioner could be switched on...

ALthough we had to sleep in the air of a fan which was insufficient as per our regular habit, I was feeling thankful for that fan also,...
I slept peacefully (I think I was the only person sleeping peacefully) at 4 AM I woke up sweating then I went out in Balcony took a stroll and came back and slept...

IM THANKFUL for being able to stay positive and did not feel irritated and am heartily thankful for all the luxuries which I possess and am able to consider that life will not end if they are taken away, rather I would work hard to recreate the same instead of wasting time condemning others...

Our joint family is going thru the process of becoming nuclear due to mismatch of thought process of few people...

Last Saturday, our electricity was not coming and it was found that certain wires were cut from the meter....

This Sunday also a similarly incident and my wife and bhabi lost their mind thinking that other family members are trying to disturb us by such non sense activity.

However, I thought differently and instead of just accepting their conclusions I prefered to talk with other family members about the problem and get to solution through cooperation. the end result was that every one in family were cooperating to get the power back....

IM THANKFUL To God for bestowing me the beauty of thinking right in the mist of stressful situations where most of the people are unable to think right and thus enter into a state of selective listening and their focus is not to get to the harmonious solution but to waste time finding the culprit like a CBI agent.

Im thankful for being able to focus on health, wealth and Happiness...

Im spellbound by the perfection in the Universal laws of nature which require one to practice practice practice till such mind set is achieved and every one can achieve the same provided they are inspired to practice...

Yesterday I had an oral fight with someone (a very close person) because of some difference of opinion. First I was thinking of how to prove the next person wrong but then I thought will that solve the problem. Then I read a beautiful lesson which changed my thought process

It was, "try honesty to understand the next person and see what would you have done if u were the next person"

At the face of this lesson I thought I would have not behaved like that but on deeper understand I saw a deeper meaning, The meaning was, "If I was born in that persons environment, faced those people and situation which next person had to go thru and had denied to understand the wisdom then most probably I might have been behaving like that..."

AND NOW IM THANKFUL TO THE ALMIGHTY FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL LESSON: From now on if similarly situation would crop up, I will definitely honesty try to understand the next person's view point and then say, "Im sorry if I hurt you, I understand that if I were in your place, I would have also said this and that or done such an act, you are justified for your approach..."

These words carry power because these words automatically disarm the opponent and will help to resolve the issue in a more friendly way...

Im thankful for learning that if you listen to others, they will also listen to you...

Im Thankful to the universe for making me understand the basic truth that most of the time I waste in confusion - should I do this or that, buy this or that, use this or that, live here or there, love all or a few, was right or wrong, understand or justify, win or loss (an argument), believe him or him, go there or where, learn or teach, wait or fight, love what I do or do what I love, relate or debate, health or wealth, material or spiritual, do it now or delay, earn or spend, desire or sacrifice, etc or etc...

Im thankful for understanding that I have to first make peace within and sit and decide what I want, how I want, when I want, where I want and then take steps being focused on desired goals FILLED WITH FAITH...

When life gets hectic and you begin to feel overwhelmed, take a moment to focus on the people and things you are grateful for in life. When you are grateful, other things will fall by the wayside. For example, you probably won’t be able to feel jealous and grateful at the same time. You might even be thankful for someone else’s success or their contribution to you. Being thankful gives you perspective on you situation and brings you to the present moment.

One of the most impressive reasons for being grateful is the positive impact on the way you think and feel. Research shows that grateful people have, “higher reported levels of the positive states of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, attentiveness and energy . . .”

hiiii I am new to this forum... I love to be part of this discussion as I have firm believe in that Gratitude attracts what we want..
 
The universal law of attraction says that we will attract into our life the things we think about and focus on. when we are consciously aware of our blessings and are grateful for them, we are focusing more clearly on what we want in our life - and are attracting more of those things into our life.
 

I am thankful to Almighty for each and every thing blessed to me.

I want to share the qoute of Brian Tracy regarding Gratitude

 

"Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation."

 

We should have Gratitude attitude in our daily life by just appreciating all that went well; accept the lessons learned with grace. Life is wonderful and good.

  • Every morning promise yourself to have a gratitude attitude. Everything is a blessing.
  • Thoughout the day remind yurself to be thankful. Reminder notes really help.

Every night go through the day and remind yourself of everything that there is to be thankful for...

 

 

 

"I am grateful for who I am and what I am right now"

Rommi ji

Welcome to the LT Forum

I liked your clarity and faith in law of attraction
I appreciate Ronda Berne for the book "The Secret"
and the new one "The Power" where she clearly
shares that law of attraction is simply the law of LOVE.
The more love you give the more you get, the lesser you
give the lesser you get. So focus on things, situations
and people you love and you will attract them in your life :)

Im looking forward for your sharing on other topics also Rommi ji

An hour to like someone,
And a day to love someone,
But it takes a lifetime to forget someone

When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.

Make it a habit to say people thank you.
To express your appreciation,
sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return.
Truly appreciate those around you,
and you'll soon find many others around you.
...Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it. HAVE A NICE DAY

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
Have a blessed day!Tongue

“A Note of Gratitude”

I saw a man with no legs. He waved his arms.
 I saw a woman with no teeth. She smiled.
I saw a man who could not stand. He crawled.
I saw a woman in a wheelchair. She rolled.
 I saw man who could not speak. He signed.
I saw a girl with no mother. She tightly held the hand of her father.
I saw a man who was blind. He held a sign that read "God Bless You."
I saw a baglady who offered a stranger money for a bottle of water.
She had pride. I saw people sitting on the sidewalk who had no homes. They had hearts.
 These people had much to give.
 They gave me much gratitude.

I got to know about few interesting facts of our stomach!! our stomach adjusts to ur eating habits rapidly... if we have habit to eat in big gaps and lot of food then our stomach accordingly.. we feel hungry only during that time. when we eat freequently in small intervals then our hunger ignites accordingly.. What an adjustment it does!!! we can learn the adjustment and apply it in our relations..

Be Thankful
Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.
It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings

Whoever has it, will be given more and will have abundance...
Whoever do not have it, whatever he has will be taken back...

The rich will become richer and poor poorer...

The word which solves riddle is GRATITUDE.

Whoever has GRATITUDE, will be given more and will have abundance...
Whoever do not have GRATITUDE, whatever he has will be taken back...

I am very happy and thankful for this understanding because it has transformed my life...

Sometimes we think we have so little: little blessings, little work, little salary, little allowance. But if we start to appreciate the little things in life, we will find out that what we have so MUCH. So much of family & friends, so much of love, so much of trust & so much of GOD in our hearts.
Lets have the attitude of gratitude.

Do you have someone in your life whom you do not like often???
Usually its your spouse :)
Till you find your spouse, usually its one of your parents :)

I just found out a good way to improve that relation without even talking to that person...
and it is -

every day write down 10 things you like in that person...
It can be like this
1. Alteast that person was good with me at that time...(write down that beautiful moment(s) and write)
2. This persons shows me what not to do with others and I can learn instead of teach him/her
3. Still there are people who like this person because of his (write what qualities others think he has)
4. Write down what instructions that person agree on which you give (it may be that you call and he picks the phone or you ask for something and he gives)
5. Write down how much mental strength he has got, what words he can bear
6. Write down what you like in his dressing sense, eating habits, buying decisions, etc.
7. Whom do he/she listen to and follow and what could be reason why
8. What he wants
9. What acts make him feel happy
10. What he listens to - like music or anything else...

Try out writing 10 points every day and see miraculous improvement in relation in next 7 days...
I have done that and thus am recommending... :)

When we start writing 10 things to be greatful for and we write every day
then we automatically develop habit of looking at all good around us...

I was observing while standing on red light that the tree on my right side was
so full of leaves and with wind all leaves were moving, birds were sitting on tree
and alot many things which I did not see while standing on same red light earlier...

You can observe all good and feel great or you can observe all bad and feel worst
BUT YOU CANNOT DO BOTH AT THE SAME TIME
So chose wisely :)

Being thankful when we actually start seeing what all is done for us, the gift of health, relations, money and surprises, we build strong faith that in future things, people and circumstances will continue to become better and better and better...

The problem starts when we try to figure out HOW things will happen...

You do not know the complete painting unless you start painting
You do not know complete poem unless you start writing
You do not know the end result unless you start walking in faith.

Start walking in faith and the whole stair case will be shown... :)

Good one

I am thankful and strongly beleive that all the events which happen with us are of only 2 kinds
1, which you can easily see and appreicate that it is for your all good and
2. which you do not see directly but time shows you that it was for your all good.

So either you cash on now or you get the lesson to cash on later :)

start seeing all good and writing down 10 points every day for what you are thankful :)

There is magic in being thankful for the great outcome.

I have seen people stressed out thinking about future may be
there coming day in office
there future purchase decisions
there future events in family etc.

So when you are thankful for the event happening properly in advance you feel so good
and things go well in future too...
How it will happen or how it happens, I DONT KNOW. May be you behave differently or anything else.
But try it and see it happen...

Every morning i am already thankful for a great day ahead, for my great travel to office then great work
in office then great evening with family and then great business phone calls and then great night recalling the best of all incidents :)

How many times do you say the words "thank you,in a day?
How many times do you hear these same words?
If you are doing the first thing,
saying the "thank you, the latter will naturally happen.
Learn to be grateful and
you will be open to receive an abundance of joy and happiness.

I have been saying thank you for many years but the day I started writing down reasons why I am thankful, my life transformed...

This excercise is so powerful, first you need to think deeply for reasons to be thankful for and then feel it...

Only by writing down 10 things every morning for things I am thankful for, I get a long list of things I was thankless in whole my life till the day I started writing...

I am thankful for the air I breath and the abundance I receive. People are breathing and living since time immemorial and still not realising the value... Opps !!!

Remember, if you are criticizing, you are not being grateful.

If you are blaming, you are not being grateful.

If you are complaining, you are not being grateful.

If you are feeling tension, you are not being grateful.

If you are rushing, you are not being grateful.

If you are in a bad mood, you are not being grateful.

Gratitude can transform your life.
Are you allowing minor things to get in the way of your transformation and the life you deserve?

Most people don't realize how much passion they put into what they don't want. When you speak to a friend and you tell them all about an "awful" situation, you are putting passion into what you don't want. When you react to an event negatively, with the response that it is "terrible", you are putting passion into what you don't want.

You are a beautiful passionate being, so make sure you direct your passion wisely.

One of my favourate practice is to be thankful for whatever I touch by adding a reason.
Adding a reason intensifies your feelings which is more important than words

Its like when I touch the soap i m thankful for its cleaning properties
my car stairing for its ease and access
my bag for I can carry things easily
my key board I can type and share...
