Day 3: Awaken the Energy of Gratitude

In today's meditation, we learn how to recharge our gratitude batteries. If we are tired, upset, or stressed, then our heart is closed and we are not able to feel or express real gratitude. Genuine gratitude comes from a feeling of contentment, safety and being welcomed in your life - what Buddha called the "gladdened heart."

This natural energy of gratitude is awakened when we meditate. Our intention in meditation is to invite this warm attitude of appreciation into our awareness and perception. With this recharged heart of thankfulness we find reason to be grateful wherever we look.

Our centering thought for today is:

I am gladdening my heart

"Joy is the simplest form of gratitude"

~ Karl Barth

Sanskrit Mantra

Ananda Hum - "I am Bliss"

Journal Questions

  1. Write down the things in your life that most gladden your heart. These could be as simple as breathing pure mountain air on a hike or feeling the warmth of the motning sun on your face

  2. Close your eyes, place your attention in your heart and reflect on the people you are most grateful for. Now write down what this experience made you feel.

  3. Describe the most beautiful thing you saw today and how it made you feel.

“True gratitude comes from knowing that you belong in the infinite dance of life...There is wonder in perceiving how the tiniest element fits into the whole, how your existence is woven into the existence of everyone you love, including every memory of love.”

May it be so.
