Gratitude for our natural environment is simplicity at it’s finest. Whenever you need a lift, turn your mind to what sustains us everyday. The elements, minerals, trees, plants, animals, insects, waters, birds, fish, or anything that provides goodness in your life! We are taught that everything and everyone has purpose. We are also taught that as long as we keep being grateful we will maintain our ‘Good Mind.’
In traditional practices, cultures, faiths and teachings worldwide we are reminded of our dependency on our natural environment and because of that, we need to remain humble. Humbleness is knowing our own strengths and weaknesses; and appreciating everything: life lessons; our serenity; differences; and simplicity!
We are to remember that of the four families of creation: the animal kingdom; the mineral life; the plant family and the human race, we are the only ones that are able to live because of the other three. All of the other three families of creation can live in harmony with each other and can do so without the human race.
Our connection to our Higher Power – God, Buddha, Creator or whatever term you prefer – depends on our appreciation for our fellow beings. Getting back to the simplicity of our original instructions worldwide enhances and strengthens our spirituality, this is the connection we long for.
Peace Love and Connection for Our Peace On Earth … smiling loud … 🙂
