Love & Gratitude

@johnhain

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

“When you arise in the morning,
think of what a precious privilege it is
to be alive,
to breathe,
to think,
to enjoy,
to love”
~ Marcus Aurelius

For most of us the month of December presents itself as a time where we feel and want to express our love and gratitude to our loved ones. It is the time to make peace with the people around us.
But what if you are not able to express it due to unresolved or not solvable issues in a relationship?

For my part I believe that if you can make peace within yourself about a situation with a person, one can still extend gratitude to him/her on an energetic level (thought and feeling) without needing to express it
verbally.

Here a very personal story.
Very early on in life I realized already that it doesn’t have to be your own family that unconditionally loves you and you feel love for.
After being emotionally hurt over and over again, there is still that feeling of gratitude for my existence that nevertheless will remain and will be cherished by me. Communication never has been fruitful with my parents and extended times of silence between us are also not
uncommon.
Sending that heartfelt energy out and be at peace with what is, is all that I can do. It has been a long process, but well worth it to move
beyond trying, bending backwards, guilt and struggle.

I don’t know if you have people in your life where you feel like you at the ropes end with communication and trying to change things. There is no need to suffer, because of it. I think it is important to find clarity within oneself, send the “good vibes” out there, and maybe in time and space something will shift inside that other person.

This month I decided to share different thoughts and inspiration of love and gratitude on my blog.

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
