Some of us are so engrossed in trying to make things happen or lamenting over things we do not have. Continually searching for those things that we think may meet our needs, and make us happy. The more we search the unhappier we become.
Only recently, I was in conversation with a commuter, who shared with me that they were going blind in both eyes. Having gone through multiple consultations, unconventional medicines, they are now certain, that their problem is ‘beyond Science’.
Does it really take such stark conversations to remind ourselves how fortunate we are? I say ‘Yes, most definitely’. It certainly made me stop to think yet again, how ungrateful I can be.
This is a stark reminder, to practise sincere gratitude more regularly, for those very things that help us to function daily, such as our ears, our eyes, our mouth, our legs, or even a sound mind (as so many people in our communities are losing theirs).
We really have a lot to be grateful for, as ‘No king is saved by the size of his army’.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
