Gratitude

Recommended Posts

What a great find, Ferret. I recognized his name and logo from the "Moving Art" series on Netflix. It is this wonderful cinematography, mostly or all landscapes and he matches it with different musicians and types of music.  There is no spoken word, so it's not this type of meditation, but beautiful and calming.

I didn't find it. It was sent to me by a friend who said I would like it. I did. I found it uplifting... as the tears cascaded down my face. It reminded me of Desiderata.

Desiderata

 

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others…even the dull and the ignorant for they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons for they are vexations unto the spirit. If you compare yourself with others you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble…it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

 

Exercise caution in your business affairs for the world is full of trickery. But, let this not blind you to what virtue there is…many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere, life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love for, in the face of all aridity, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the council of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings for many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

 

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here and, whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be…and, whatever your aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.

 

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

 

Strive to be happy.

Found in old St. Paul’s Church 1692

Muchos, muchos gracias! I hope more people on this board can find their way to post positive things. Doing so does not mean that one is ignoring the world wide problem of covid-19.

The legendary singer songwriter John Prine died of Covid 19 on Tuesday. One song, written in 2018, When I Get To Heaven, speaks about gratitude
