I make the firm aspiration to cultivate the perception of gratitude and contentment with everything.

Cultivating a perception of gratitude isn’t necessarily hard to do but, when your wording against lifetimes of conditioning, it certainly can seem like it. Every day there are so many robs to be grateful for : the roof over our head, the train that takes us to work, the food in the fridge. So why do we forget? Why do we take it for granted? I’m not sure why it does but clearly, without a committed and regular practice we become compulsive takers and inveterate ingrates.

Speaking of thanks, I want to thank a dear kalyanamitta who runs the Yoga Mom blog for giving me the idea to wrote letters of gratitude to all the people I met each day. I may not even ever give them these letters but I think it is a beautiful and extremely effective practice to transform the heart.

So, thank you all for reading and for inspiring my practice each day. May you all for true and lasting happiness.
