As Simrat at Akal Ranch says,
Gratitude creates its own attitude.
Once again, It’s Thankful Thursday, and I’m taking a moment to consider all the things I have to be grateful for. Part of mindful awareness is living gratitude every moment of every day, and not just while writing Thankful Thursday’s post, however. Please remember that even if you don’t participate in Thankful Thursdays, be mindful and grateful for everything.
Take a few minutes today to create your own Thankful Thursday. If you don’t have a blog of your own, you are welcome to post your thoughts here. If you have a blog, post what you are grateful there, and please link back here. Feel free to tag other bloggers. We are trying to get a mindful movement of gratitude going.
The past week and a half I’ve been trying to assist with a very large project at Tellington TTouch Training. Since I missed the first two weeks of the visit to Hawaii of Sandy Rakowitz (One Heart Healing Center and The Holistic Animal), I played catch-up the whole time.
Even after mostly catching up, I could not contribute in a quality way to the development of the project because I don’t have the 25 years of experience with Tellington TTouch that Sandy has. But that’s not what this post is about.
Sandy’s knowledge is astounding. Just by talking about the subject at hand, she taught me things I might never have had access to. By her demeanor, so calm, grounded and honest, she shows me a better way to be. I spent much of our time together marveling at the rich complexity of her body of knowledge and her skill at integrating it into the project, and in communicating it to me and others. There aren’t a lot of people like this in the world. I’m grateful to have spent this intensive time with her, and even more grateful to know her.
