[Classic post from 10-20-17]
A couple of days ago I wrote about prayer and how Thank You! was what I thought to be the ultimate prayer.
This morning I saw the quote above and though the reminder of being in gratitude was good, what struck me about this quote was the latter part of the quote: “it instantly stops the rational mind, and all its planning and plotting.” That is powerfully true, and yet I haven’t really thought about it quite that way.
So, based on this, as my mind is running in circles as it often does like a dog chasing its tail, I could take some time and sit and try to meditate and release it all, but in that scenario, doing that seems like work. However, as I think about the fact that being grateful for something, anything, anyone, and more, I shut off my rational mind right then without any effort whatsoever.
How Amazing Is That!?
Spread Some Joy Today–by finding any little thing, or anything at all to be grateful for. The effort is nil, but the reward is heavenly.
