#purrs4peace Hello everyone, we’re participating in Purrs 4 Peace Week 25. This weeks Purrs4Peace has us purring because we are Thankful for Gratitude.
Please join us in Purrs4Peace
“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” – Cicero
Gratitude is defined as a feeling of thankful appreciation for favors or benefits received. Instead of purring about subjects that we are unhappy with, this week, given the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving Day, I would like to purr about the things for which we are grateful. Let us purr with thankfulness in our hearts.
“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” – Buddha
Gratitude is one of the most powerful forces for good in the Universe. When we are grateful for what we have we not only increase our own blessings but bring further blessing to the world as a whole.
One of the leading authors on “the law of attraction” wrote the following about gratitude: “If it is a new thought to you that gratitude brings your whole mind into closer harmony with the creative energies of the universe, consider it well, and you will see that it is true.” – Walter Wattles.
We can create the world we want, with the peace we want, one blessing at at a time with gratitude.
Let us purr with thankfulness. Let us purr to bring an attitude of gratitude for ourselves and the world. Let us purr for peace.
