Gratitude loves dancing with Beauty
They dance with ease and grace,
Perfect dance partners.
Why not let gratitude dance with anger, with fear,
With resentment and pain?
“Cause when you do you find yourself dancing
Right into Heaven’s sweet embrace.
It’s easy to love beauty and it’s easy to feel gratitude for things that are beautiful. But unwanted situations bring us feelings of pain and suffering and we don’t love those negative feelings or situations very much, do we? But why? What’s the benefit of resisting, avoiding, wallowing in analyzing? Have any of these things ever worked? No! All these approaches just keep these things hanging around, and if they do seem to disappear well guess what? a while later they return again. So if we know they don’t work then why stay stuck in something that doesn’t bring us what we want?
Maybe all negative responses are simply habit, simply something we’ve been trained to do down through the generations without ever questioning why. ..like some glitch in the human condition.
So why not try loving all unwanted situations and being grateful for them because maybe they’re the only way to get to the Peace that waits on the other side? Why not set yourself free and help set the world free?
Pinch of Spice…Yes this week every time you notice a negative reaction, any negative emotion, ask yourself, “Why? Is this emotion serving me?” Then be willing to let it go and love the situation that you thought caused that emotion. Feel gratitude for the situation and feel gratitude for the emotion. Enjoy that feeling when you let go. Enjoy letting gratitude dance with all your emotions.
