This one’s a special one. Practicing gratitude is a hard task. Those who do, they know. Once you do, it becomes a part of your life. It is more than just saying “thank you” or “I appreciate it” and so on. It has been 2 years that I have taken up following the rituals that was passed on to me. The previous generations did not have the option of creating digital connections and spreading knowledge. So I look at it as my duty to tell my readers about the profound gift of gratitude that we are endowed with, but, rarely found within ourselves. So we seek for linguistic expressions that sadly become more of a universal norm.
There are 6 things that keep the inertia lock on our lives. Interestingly enough, majority of us do not know the higher order influence that they have on us. They are the Sun, the Moon, Earth’s magnetic field, trees, Jupiter and Saturn!
When you Google the importance of Sun in our lives, it will say something like:
“It radiates light and heat, or solar energy, which makes it possible for life to exist on Earth. Plants need sunlight to grow. Animals, including humans, need plants for food and the oxygen they produce. Without heat from the sun, Earth would freeze.”
Well, for the times you take your impulsive nature to compare your life with others, know that no matter what, you both would need the Sun to even be alive!
Besides the gravitational pull and the rhythmic braking Moon provide us with, thank the rock for letting you have the abilities to be intuitive, feel joy, contentment and love. Thank the Moon, find your key to happiness!
Trees, perhaps the only natural element that we shamelessly exploit, even after knowing the consequences. If only we were grateful for all the amazing things trees do. Every single part of a tree is selfless and is worthy of something. From regulating air for us to bearing cures for life threatening ailments, the list can go on. Now I understand we all agree with Charles Darwin at the same time. But it seems to have been now misinterpreted and instead of survival and existence it is now man vs nature. Sadly, we fail to realize that we are a part of the nature!
I would like to end my blog here and create a part 2 for the rest of the elements.
I hope you find the part 1 useful.
