"When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, look for the fault that lies within yourself.” — Tecumseh, early 19th century leader of the North American Shawnee Tribe and inter-tribal confederacy.
It is commonly believed that gratitude arises from a state of happiness and contentment, but what if happiness and contentment were actually born from a cultivation of gratitude? Even if one does not follow a particular spiritual faith tradition, a natural progression in the development of human character, maturity, humanity and consciousness is the cultivation of gratitude — regardless of your socio/cultural roots, faith background or personal beliefs.
For it is in the practice of training the psyche to mindfully recognize the wonder and beauty around us and to give thanks for these little gifts, that an increasingly progressive, perpetual, elevated state of happiness and contentment begins to abide within us. But this takes time and perseverance. Like any organic farmer knows, even planting seed in the ground is not the beginning of the journey to harvest — the ground itself must be prepared first.
