I realize again that I lack for nothing if I have love, compassion, health and purpose in my heart. I am grateful. I am wealthy. Thank you. I humbly ask for more.
The funny thing about human beings is that it usually takes a death, or a diagnosis of a disease, something catastrophic for most of us to focus on thing that really truly matter. It does not have to be that way. You can take stock and be grateful everyday. And as the teacher said, when you do, you will relish in the awe of each blessing and take nothing for granted.
It just takes a moment of contemplative reflection to be grateful for what you do have. And no one is exempt, because even in the midst of titanic insufficiency and pain, each of us can find something, a kernel, or several kernels for which to be enthusiastically and unconditionally and even ridiculously thankful.
