Gratitude

  • “Know your head, and keep it down.”

 

  • “Constant remembrance of ‘I am’ takes me beyond what I think I am.”

 

  • “Gratitude is the only legitimate function of mind.”

 

  • “I do not know my own good, so I cannot desire my own good. Existence knows what is good for me. So it sends me the Sun; it has given me the capacity to love and understand. There is a bigger power, a totality that knows what is best for me. And let that bigger power, let that totality decide what is good for me.
    I should not look after myself because I cannot look after myself, and if I try to look after myself I will only do myself harm. If I do not want to harm myself then I should not have this stupid belief in my expectations.”

 

  • “Gratitude is not a need. Gratitude is not an obligation.Gratitude arises. It arises in spite of your resistance.

    You are not obliged to feel grateful.”

 

  • “Faith is about having gratitude even when bad things are happening to you.”

 

  • “Gratitude is not about uttering thanks when you receive a pleasant gift.
    Gratitude is about remaining thankful when you are being destroyed.”

 

  • “In Real gratitude you’re thankful because something has been reduced not because you have obtained something.”

 

  • “Gratitude is about thanking God when you feel that life is hell.”

 

  • “‘Whatever is going on, I remain joyful’, that is gratitude.”

 

  • “Live in Love – that is the only gratitude that you can express.
    Let the mind be at peace – that is the only gratitude that you can offer.”

 

  • “The one who is in gratitude, cannot complain.Gratitude and complaints cannot go together.”
