Spiritual Living:Count your blessings
2008-04-09
Name: Editor Do you often feel you are not as lucky as your rich friends? Do you feel frustrated because you are failing to achieve your goals? Do you think your friends would value you more if you owned a fancy car?

I was always asked to count my blessings but I didn' t know how? Writing down thoughts is helpful. Even when I walk on the road whenever I see the homeless and poor, I feel I am really blessed. Once I even saw a man eat from a garbage bin. I wouldn' t even stand near a bin and the poor man was picking stale leftovers and making a meal out of it. Life can be hard. And the lucky ones must not forget that. We should be happy that we are not amongst the unfortunate. Of course it depends upon a lot with what you do with your life and what choices you make. But it surely helps sometimes to look at how fortunate we are.

It is very difficult to take small steps since the whole world is out to compete. One can' t be just lagging behind. It is not a very good feeling when your friends are doing better than you. Counting our blessings is fine but we need to aspire to keep growing. I do not want to live small. What about the phrase ' dream big' ? I really have big dreams and wish to have good money and I do not think there is anything wrong in that. I can’t live all my life looking at what I have and comparing myself with people who do not have what I have in life.

Hey I think I was really forgetting everything I have and becoming a. crib. I think there is so much more to do in life and achieve rather than just cribbing. I actually picked up a pen and paper and soon my paper had so many things that I did not even remember were with me. I started and now I am actually maintaining a journal of everything that is working in my favour. I feel happier. I am able to go back and read all that I have recorded. When I feel down and low and feel that I am not so lucky, I read what I entered in my journal and I return to my senses and once again I am ready for life.

spiritual living-igniting the Universal heart
A good spiritual practice is to start your day (each day) with purpose, intention and in the way you want to live that day. That might mean that you start your day with thoughts of love, gratitude and ease. Or it might mean that you wake up without the alarm clock and just stay in bed for a moment and affirm to yourself, “This is a beautiful day.” It might mean that... - nitin gonte [View Message]
