Many of us are taught from a young age to give thanks: "Thanks for dinner." "Thanks for the gift." "Thank you for your words, for friendship, life ..." and many more. They also remind us all the time: "And you gave thanks to your aunt, your cousin, your dad, your teacher ..." This does not teach the course, with the best of intesiones, mainly as a form courtesy of a nice way to match a favor, gift or care for someone or something makes us. But do we really teach us that is the gratitude?
If we are honest, to say thank you often just stays there, in a word that does not represent anything for us, we say thank you while on the other hand we do not like the gift, or that we were worthy of something more valuable, something that deserved better ectétera. We appreciate without feeling what is really gratitude, we are even forced to thank feeling anger, blame, frustration, etcérea. Thus, spontaneous and honest attitude that should be the act of thanksgiving is being buried in exchange for the proper education, becoming a simple and superficial word, a word that is repeated many times mechanically, not what we are saying no mean nothing when we are grateful.
The power of gratitude?
Recently I read that if you learned to give thanks we multiply our gifts, the article spoke of miracles and repeat a thousand times thank you for this and that, but never explained what was really the act of feeling grateful. I think that's why someone told me about the article: "These are pure nonsense"
What is gratitude?
Gratitude arises as spontaneous emotion when you're happy, that's one of the most definitions share. But let us see the word gratitude means "grace." Etymologically, the word gratitude share the same roots that "grace". And grace can be understood as the gift or help free of supernatural and God (or a supernatural force). But we can also say that when you're in is because grace is somehow favored, either by a friend, an object, a expereicnia or something supernatural.
Feeling encouraged, to observe, because here's the key, it is felt that the balance between what they give and receive is loaded receiving side, ie the feeling of grace arises when one feels he is "more" of what that is giving, then, spontaneously, one is grateful.
What prevents you feel grateful
I think one of the major impediments to not feel full and honest gratitude that we feel is very often the balance is charged over the "other side", that is, we think that we give more than we are receiving. The moment we feel that we are not favored in spite of everything we, "then we are looking forward to get our acts insinuated" request ", as they feel the most negative slope (or injustice), require more somehow make this a fair balance level.
The mere fact, for example, to think that our dad or mom should we or should give, make or bring, etc. We immediately causes a feeling of dissatisfaction, and stronger this feeling, the more you feel the claim, without take into account the things that, on the other hand, if we had. The mere fact that someone thought we should take the seat, taking into account, invite, etc., just to feel that someone owes us something, which then leads to anything that appears to receive us "little" inadequate and we are also mindful that we get what we need, on the other blind to what Hemse received. We have forgotten who is who receives more, who cares.
The power of gratitude
Gratitude is powerful, it is really a secret to increase our goods in every sense, but this is the fact only say thank you, that if the previous action and there was some intent, yet is not activated if not all power the SNET. Thank attitude is getting in to, rather than waiting for our den.
When operated this attitude immediately abundance in every sense begins to flow, because in so doing we demonstrated that sings "is what most want to receive," who writes this knows that the only way that we can get more. But to get us a noble and generous as is the giving, before we should take into account that no one owes us anything, nothing, that life be any less unjust, that all we have is because they deserve it, and queremso change if cuualqueir fortune, must be because we press that luck.
Dar es feel gratitude. And it is true that many times is to bring the action when we feel that we do not have much more complicated is to give those who feel they owe us something, how should we give them if they give? This is precisely the mentality that we should start to change, fail to see that the balance is unfavorable, engage in a conscious effort that no one owes us anything. If hacemso awareness among the things Hemse Hemse received and given, perhaps notemso a day that we are debtors of her life from us.
I can not fail to mention in eMoment Classifieds is one of the pieces that have inspired me more gratitude in this life. I thank in advance to Yehudi Menuhin (violinist and orchestra leader internationally recognized, among many other things) having put into words something so beautiful very inspiring.
"Colmado for a united family, close friends and creators sublime, attempt to restore the balance of this sort only other attempt to correct the balance in favor of my life, always looking how to get the word and message of the music will become more understandable and convincing other people's lives, that of children, especially through education. Despite my numerous attempts only helps them gain more and more affection. The balance sheet remains unbalanced. I am still liable for the lives and abarzo with great humility and with all my gratitude. " Yehudi Menuhin.
