“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depends on the labor of other men (and women a.r), living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and still receiving”. Albert Einstein
A hundred times a day!!!! No wonder the universe revealed itself to him the way it did. One hundred times!!! Every day!!!
Inspired by Mr. Einstein I began to do the same. I’ve been practicing gratitude for years. It was a natural outcome of my two years meditation retreat. I thought I was a grateful person. Still, for the past month I’ve been intentionally exerting gratitude (at least) one hundred times every day. And I’m FLYING!!!! I feel so happy. So alive. So wonderful that I just have to share this with others.
Thus, I’d like to invite you to join me on a 30 days Gratitude challenge beginning the 10th of September. Together we will dedicate 30 days to expressing gratitude 10 times a day.
There are countless benefits to the practice of gratitude. Ranging from improving our physical and mental well being to manifesting our life goals and aspiration. I can’t promise you anything except a feeling of immediate overwhelming joy, a feeling that follows an intentional practice of gratitude.
Gratitude and Love
It’s no wonder that gratitude has the potential to transform our lives. If you think about it, each moment of expressing gratitude expend our hearts, reminds us of the abundance of beauty and kindness that life offers us and reminds us of our inherent goodness. The practice of gratitude intentionally brings about an energy of love to our lives and, as we all know, the power of love does change the world.
Gratitude and the present moment
When we practice gratitude we are at peace with what is. We are appreciating people and situations in our lives and accept things as they are. We’re not grasping or resisting. We are reminded that everything is already perfect the way is is. We just… are…
Gratitude and Oneness
But it’s even more than that. Every time we authentically feel gratitude we are being reminded of the interconnected nature of everything. We remember that we are not separated from anything or anyone. We are the trees and the flowers, the mountains and rivers and all the beautiful beings we feel gratitude towards. When we truly feel gratitude we glimpse our true nature. We glimpse oneness. We stand at the gateway to the ultimate wisdom. When we authentically feel gratitude the universe reveals itself to us, the same way it did to Albert Einstein.
Join us for a Gratitude Challenge
This is a personal invitation to join me on a gratitude adventure. Join me on a 30 days Gratitude challenge beginning the 10th of September. Together we will dedicate 30 days to expressing gratitude 10 times a day. Participation is free and will consist of a number of recorded meditations and 30 daily reminders sent to you each morning for 30 days beginning the 10th of September. All you need is a pair of headphones, a notebook and a burning desire to fall in love with your life.
Together we will create an international community of men and women committed to practice gratitude. A community of like minded people can share with and support each other, create a critical change in collective consciousness and support countless others who do not practice. Hopefully some of you will be inspired to join me on the 100 times a day journey.
There are different ways to daily practice of gratitude. And countless things to be grateful for. You can chose one method or alternate between the methods or share others methods that I didn’t mention.. The important thing is to set the intention to stop ten times every day and just be grateful and appreciative for someone or something.
It is my responsibility to daily remind us to be grateful via this blog, twitter and a facebook designated page, however, this is an invitation for all of us to contribute, inspire, share and support each other.
Come fly with me….
