Gratitude Motivational Video with Eckhart Tolle, Oprah & Tony Robbins
What are the questions one needs to ask oneself?
Well, I think one needs to look at what bounty and blessings have I received from the universe that I want to acknowledge and celebrate?
What do I want to celebrate about today?
What happened today that I can celebrate, that I can be grateful for?
And rather than waking up in the morning “I didn’t get no sleep” and going to bed at night with “I didn’t get enough done” which is bookending your day with scarcity…
Yes, I think this is interesting for us to think about how many times a day that tape plays of “not enough”, not just money…
How many times the “not enough” shows up.
But what if we woke up in the morning and are so grateful for this sweet territory of silence and sleep?
And you can wake up that way.
You can actually tell yourself to do that
Our mind is very obedient, even if it’s just four hours.
And be grateful for that.
And then at the end of the day rather than looking at what didn’t get done that’s going to dribble over on to tomorrow where we mostly end up each day, to “look at what I accomplished today”
“what I celebrate today”…
Today.. everyday is such a blessing.
You see the abundance of water, rain falling from the sky.
There’s an abundance of water, there’s an abundance of aliveness, there’s an abundance of joy in the dog that’s going past you there
And so to recognize, to see the abundance that surrounds you even if you’re very poor in the eyes of the world, the abundance is always there around you.
But you need to recognize it, acknowledge it, and another word for it is gratitude.
I know, I was going to say, that’s why I’ve kept a gratitude journal for years.
Three and a half minutes of pure gratitude about 3 things.
And I pick one of those 3 to be simple.
Because I don’t want to be the astronaut that went to the moon and that was his idea of adventure and then they all come back depressed because “what I do I do for the rest of my life?”
So the wind on my face, my children’s faces anything…
And the reason for gratitude is..
The 2 emotions that mess us up the most are fear and anger.
And you can’t be grateful and fearful simultaneously. They don’t go together.
And you can’ be angry and grateful simultaneously.
Gratefulness is the experience of the great fullness of life.
And when you’re in the great fullness of life,
the bowl of life is so full, it’s almost overflowing but not quite.
Not yet dripping over the edges.
And you’re one with God, one with the universe and there is no other
when you stand in and live in the great fullness of life.
And that great fullness is so powerful, that it overflows into the fountain of life and that puts you in this other branch of gratitude he calls thanksgiving.
And when you’re in the branch of gratitude called thanksgiving the bowl of life is overflowing.
And you’re so grateful that there’s an other because all you want to do is give and share, and serve and contribute and that’s so fulfilling, it puts you back in the great fullness of life.
So you can live in that cycle. You can actually live in that cycle no matter what your financial circumstance is.
You also say that “acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation of all abundance”.
And again, many people make that mistake
because they believe that “there is nothing good in my life.”
And that’s absurd.
It means they’re not present.
They’re trapped in certain stories in their head
which tell them continuously that “there is nothing good in my life”.
And if they only open their eyes and looked around…
Now abundance, you need to recognize that as coming from within you.
Abundance is not something that external things come to you that make you abundant.
Abundance is the energy that flows out of you, out of the being of who you are, into this world.
Isn’t gratitude in itself an energy field that draws more to you?
Isn’t it its own vibrational frequency that draws more to you?
Yes. That’s what I interpreted you say, that gratitude is it’s own energy field.
And that when you acknowledge and are grateful for whatever you have, when you can see and feel the gratitude, experience the gratitude and whatever you have, that changes your vibrational frequency literally and allows more to be drawn to you.
Yes. It changes your entire reality. It changes the way in which you experience life.
It changes your world. Here, in this moment, what is it in this moment that I can be grateful for?
