Eckhart Tolle’s Clip On Gratitude

As I mentioned yesterday, here’s today’s video that goes hand in hand with the focus of week 5 in the Kindness Challenge. This talks about gratitude yielding abundance- not just material but whatever you focus your attention on…kindness for example 😉

There are several great clips in this playlist. The one below talks about gratitude specifically-

I’ll warn you, this next clip cuts deep. I know I wasn’t in a place to receive this 3 years ago. I still had my victim mentality and this would have either enraged me or sunk me deeper into my woe is me hole thinking “you don’t understand me or my problems!”. I’ve climbed out of that cave and can see, accept and appreciate this for what it is. I hope this reaches the person that needs to see it in the moment they’re open to receiving it.

What are your thoughts on these videos? Was gratitude already apart of your daily routine before this week’s focus? Has this week’s focus helped you realize you should incorporate gratitude into your routine? Did you ever realize gratitude had the benefits described in the first clip? Have you thought about gratitude having the impact discussed in the second clip? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    1. Miriam that was the essence of that clip, and it spoke to me profoundly! I can’t think of a time when I was let down, disappointed, stressed, etc. where that statement doesn’t ring true. It all boils down to how I react and ultimately accept the present moment. Something I wasn’t good at before but have learned to practice over the years that have made a difference. That is a lot of responsibility to accept and 3 years ago I wasn’t in the place to accept those words… That was a very deep revelation to me. I’m glad you watched it Miriam 🙂

  1. I thought about his definition of stress all day and I tried to catch my thoughts every time I wasn’t content with “the present situation”. So many stressful situations just from home to the subway, I started thinking I’m a little brat. Is there anything in this world that doesn’t bother me? Do I really think in my little brain that the world around me should constantly be aware of my happiness…all the time? 😀 And then I thought this is just the tip of the iceberg. Imagine someone who is not content with their job, with their family, with the city or country they’re living in, their financial situation, their friends, constantly and then top it all with daily situations…I’m just not sure that sugar or meat is the source of cancer anymore… Amazing, thank you so much for sharing!

    1. Yes!! Once you start to digest that piece of wisdom you start to see things from a different perspective. I had never considered his point before and boy was that a tough pill to swallow when thinking about past situations and I was able to see the difference with how I handle things now by being mindful. I read an article that said stress was worse on your health than smoking…When you break down a day like you just did, it’s no wonder why! I’m so glad you got so much insight from that clip 🙂
