GRATITUDE


Gratitude …an intense ultimate virtue a person can has…It is just a feeling that  emerges within our heart for any person,being,work or anything. In today’s materialistic world,people often misconceive gratitude as being just grateful.

We are usually grateful towards people who have helped us in some way or other to help us achieve something .But this happens when we are able to see the result that we get after the help has been done..

Indeed we should be grateful to those people who have helped us in any way..But gratitude is of completely different nature.

WE are filled with gratitude when we are touched by somebody’s gesture of helping,giving,expressing and even feeling about us. This is a virtue which flows within and is showered when our heart feels obliged,touched by a kind gesture of somebody else’s emotions.This  fills us with humility as we are able to realise the goodwill of another person..

People nowadays don’t think so intensely neither do they have the depth of understanding things..The so called fast life has taken away the sense of understanding and peacefulness we used to have once..Everybody just lives in this world now without any life ..without  feeling the essence of life…Merely like machines or robots..surrounded by all the gadgets that help us in completing our work in minutes..but make us so vulnerable that we have lost the confidence in ourselves and have forgotten our own potential.These have already taken us away from our friends and family..and we all live in a virtual world..Where the world is completely different fronm the real one..Emotions and feelings have taken a backstage and are considerd to be sign of weaknesses if anybody by error displays them.

All forget these are things that have kept us bonded with everything else of this world . There is no realisation without feelings and no gratitude without realisation..As we tend to become more materialistic this great virtue in due of course of time will vanish leading to just the chaos of struggling of one’s existence without thinking of anybody else..

God forbid such a  day and let the magic of words flow and infuse life ,feelings & emotions amongst all and we create a world which is more happier and filled with peace.

  1. A smile, a hug, some words, a gift, holding hands, a card, waving hands, a kiss, a pat on the back are few small-forgotten-uncomplicated ways of showing gratitude. Its not an art to master or a skill you need to be expert in. Its a natural way how we have evolved. its just being forgotten because the life is so quick that rather than making memories to cherish – we try to look for memories to cash in!
    Glad I checked here!

  2. It is important for a man to understand that his words have tremendous power in his spouse’s life. He needs to bathe her with words of feelings. She has given her life to love and care for him, to partner with him, to create a family together, to nurture his children.

    If man is always finding fault in something she’s doing, always putting her down, he will reap horrendous problems in his marriage and in his life. Moreover, many women today are depressed and feel emotionally abused because their husbands do not shower them with caring and loving words.

    One of the leading causes of emotional breakdowns among married women is the fact that women do not feel valued. One of the main reasons for that deficiency is because men are willfully and unwittingly withholding the words of approval women so desperately desire. If man wants to see God do wonders in his marriage, let him first start feeling vibrations of his spouse. Let him start appreciating and encouraging his spouse.

    Every single day, man should tell his spouse, “I Love You. I Appreciate You. You’re The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me.” A spouse should do the same for her husband. His relationship would improve immensely if he would simply start speaking kind, positive words, loving his spouse instead of cursing her.

  3. It is true, when you approach life with gratitude the love and beauty around you increases. I also liked what you said about our lack of time in the modern world. I think we are being trained to think in shorter and shorter bites of information, from television to text messaging. There seems to be less time for deeper, more complex thoughts, including complex emotions. We suffer as a culture and individually. Thank you for your insights.

    • Thanks a lot Rebecca for finding time to read this . It is really sad to see that the trend has been such that the real and the precious values have lost with the fast pace and the technological advances of our world.

  4. When we are having the blue’s gratitude can uplift us. For a start we could carry out a simple exercise of listing 5 things for which we are grateful every day. The lows will gradually slip away :)
