- Everything comes back to gratitude. The best of times and the worst
of times are all connected by gratitude. We are so happy and
grateful when things are going well. And when things aren't going so
well, we can be grateful for what we are compared to what we were.
And we can always be thankful for chocolate too! I am so grateful
for the blessings I have recieved from Sri Chinmoy.
- I know this has been said many times before, but thank you all for
the wonderful and inspiring postings on this site.
I have spent the last week sick with the flu and am still recovering.
During this time I have felt many times that my life is crashing in
around me, and I have struggled with the most basic of things, the
most important one of these being meditation.
So it is so wonderful to be reminded about how special our lives on
this path are. I may not be about to run a 3100 mile race, but at
least I try to grow into my soul's light at least some of the time.
For this priveledge I must be thankful from the depths of my heart.
"My Absolute Lord Supreme,
My gratitude-heart is the only place
Where I can see
Sri Chinmoy, from "Secrets From My Soul"
- "My Lord Supreme told me
That my gratitude-heart
Has nullified the distance
Between my earth and His Heaven"
Excerpt from Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 22 by Sri
- Dear all,
I would just like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all who have
helped with the start-up of a new Centre here in Split. We are growing
in number, and are having a great time together - singing and learning
new songs, reading spiritual texts both in English and in Croatian,
watching spiritual videos, running on a beautiful hill with lots of
trees that is surrounded by the sea. The air is healing, the sun is
smiling, and our hearts are full of joy.
We just came back from a Concert of Sri Chinmoy's and are feeling full
of light and hope for a better life. It is so good to be in the
vicinity of a real spiritual Master, even for a little while, for they
inspire us to bring to the fore our very best qualities, and transform
the not so good ones :))
In the life of aspiration and dedication
The gratitude-deer always runs the fastest,
Always achieves the most,
Always becomes the perfection-satisfaction
Of the highest
Most fulfilling and fulfilled
Supreme in us.
Gratitude is not a human achievement.
Gratitude is a divine treasure
Granted to us
By the inner Pilot within us,
The Absolute Supreme.

I couldn´t have put it into better words:
When you live relatively alone and "bound" to circumstances you often have no big opportunities to share your experiences with other disciples.
The more I am grateful for these short videos.
Not giving up
