    Seriously one of the most inspiring Ted Talks. It just got me to stop and really look deeply into what I have. Rushing thru life seems to be so common for years now, but what we should never ever forget is to have gratitude towards what's life has been giving you. Someday I just sat still and simply be grateful for just being alive, those ego is torn down. Thanks for putting gratefulness into easily digesting perspective. Keep inspiring people David. 👍🏻

    الامتنات يكون للاشياء ذات القيمة بالنسبة لنا والتي منحت لنا بدون اي جهد بل منحت لنا كهدايا ..حينها سيمتلأ قلبنا بالامتنان. . لكن لو فكرنا ان كل لحظة لنا في الحياة هي هدية ممنوحة لنا بالمجان عندها سنكون ممتنين على الدوام. .

    You can be grateful for everything including the bad. The bad things teach us lessons, gives us experience. We only see that in hindsight. If we can see that as the bad thing is happening, all of a sudden, it isnt so bad. (There are extremes where this prolly wouldnt work, like being tortured) I know someone who went to prison thinking this way. He told me that with all the obnoxious and inconsiderate people in there with him, he learned how to deal with it and appreciate the opportunity to practice it. Now all the small problems in life arent bad. He is grateful to be sitting in traffic, at least he has a vehicle. His job can suck at times, but hes grateful to have one! I gotta learn this! Lol

    Below is my mantra or prayer of gratitude that I read aloud each morning before I start my daily activities. I read it aloud again just before I retire for the day. I wrote this in response to the videos about the Law Of Attraction (LOA). All that I got from these videos is that each of us can have what we desire (or what we think we desire). The theme seems to suggest that the Universe is at our beck and call for anything we want. “The Universe wants you to have whatever you desire, and all you must do is to visualize it.” I suggest that it’s not that simple. Do you really feel that you deserve what you want? Can you accept the responsibility that goes with the manifestation of your desires? And, most important, what have you done FOR the Universe that it should grant your wish? Has this mantra helped me in realizing my desires? Has it made me happier and more content? Really, it makes no difference, as we should express our gratitude to the Universe, anyway. I already have all that I need. My only desires are for those around me to have happy and prosperous lives. I recommend that you Copy this mantra to post in a word file. Then edit it (change the words or remove some of the text to personalize it to your liking). I feel that before you will benefit, you must work up some deep emotion and true feeling about what you write. See what it does for you. It may help in your realizing your desires. Instead of the term "Universe", use whatever suits you, like "Supreme Being" "The All", "Infinite Intelligence", "Prime Creator", or "God". (I don't use "God", as it is a title, not a name)

    From the feelings in my heart and in my mind, I thank the Universe: for revealing to me that my purpose is to serve the Universe, for the power within me to be more observant, without judgment, of the events and the people around me, for the power within me to assert myself, and to project my positive energy vibrations in my devotion to serving the Will of the Universe, for guiding me and providing for me in all my past years, and for guiding and protecting me from all present and future perils, for speaking to me through the words and actions of the Spiritual Beings of others, and from the revelations I receive through my Higher Mind, for the power within me to show my gratitude to others for playing their parts in my spiritual progress, and to call down blessings upon them, for my wisdom to know that all events in my life, and the events in the lives of others, are expressions of the Laws of the Universe. I am always focused on my devotion and gratitude to the Universe: for the Power of the Prime Creator WITHIN me, for the Light & Radiance of the Prime Creator shining through me, for my Higher Mind that guides me through my daily activities, for my heart radiation field that expresses my patience and unconditional love toward others. I am blessed by, and I am grateful to the Universe that: I AM a channel through which the Universe sends its wisdom. I AM guided by my Higher Mind. I AM a co-creator with the Universe. I AM part of The Infinite that expresses itself through me. I AM in perfect health, and at One with the Universe, the ALL.

    Offer up your suffering to God he will accept them and give you the grace to get through your pain , suffering is good accept it as a part of life with humility .. I remember when Pope JP 2 who was shot and suffered terribly from Parkinson’s was asked how he dealt with pain he said the pope must suffer !!!
