Why Gratitude is the Absolute Best State to Reside In
It can be so easy to get swept up into a stream of anxiety and worry, especially as a writer. There’s always that next book or that next article deadline. At this point in my career it can sometimes feel nearly impossible to find enou*g*h time for everyone and eve*r*ything in life. What I’ve discovered is most of this anxiety and worry is completely imagined, caused by faulty perception.  It’s amazing how quickly these feelings of anxiety and worry can be shut down instantly through a very simple shift in mindset.

## “Happiness c*a*nnot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” ~Denis Waitley ##

---

Sometimes this sta*t*e of gratitude happens spontaneously. The other day I was feeling stressed about preparing two books for publication this year and keeping up with my social media and freelance work.  There I was, was walking our beagle the in the biting, subzero January wind of Minnesota and cursing it. My face was scrunched up, my shoulders tense. Suddenly an overwhelming warmth washed over me. The only way *I* can accurately describe it was a general feeling of content settled over me. That feeling was, I am so thankful for my life. I am perfectly happy in this very moment. 

Instantly, the stress and worry melted away and I relaxed. Even the frigid wind didn’t seem so bad. After medi*t*ating for nearly a quarter century I realize how vital it is to keep our conscio*u*sness in this state of gratitude for as long and as often as we possibly can. 

## Why is residing in a state of gratitude so important? ##

First of all striving to live in a state of gratitude makes us happier and this should be reason enough. Even more importantly, when we’re living in this state we open the floodgates for more positive experiences and abundance to flow into our lives. This is how the subtle energies of our universe work. Like attracts like. You attract to you whatever thoughts and emotions continuously loop in your mind. **This doesn't mean passive acceptance of the bad things in your life but acknowledgement of the good.** I repeat, living in gratitude doesn't mean passive acceptance of all things. If you *d*on’t believe that working to dwell in a state of gratitude for the wonderful things in your life works, I urge you to try it for a week. 

There are a few, very simple, exercises called *Mantra* to help us to quickly *e*ase into this state of gratitude.  A [Mantra](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mantra) is a sacred practice of repeating certain words or groups of words. These words are sacred to many Hindus and Buddhists and the repetition of them are believed to bring about great blessings and states of enlightenment to the person uttering them either aloud or silently. 

Many English speakers who practice the art of mantra repeat the traditional Sanskrit phrases. I don’t do this because I believe having to think about the meaning of the words hinders the intended process. In my personal practice I repeat the English translations of classic Sanskrit mantra. For example, in Sanskrit the mantra, Dhanya Vad translated into English is, “I feel gratitude” and Kritajna Hum means, “I am gratitude.”  These two mantra have worked very well for me.

## “Give yourself a gift of five minutes of contemplation in awe of everything you see around you. Go outside and turn your attention to the many miracles around you. This five-minute-a-day regimen of appreciation and gratitude will help you to focus your life in awe.” ~Wayne Dyer

---

<center> *Whenever you feel negative, depressed, or sad I urge you to try the following exercise:* </center>

### <center> - inhale for a count of 5; </center> ###
### <center> - hold your breath for a count of 5; and </center> ###
### <center> - exhale for a count of 5. </center> ###

<center> *Repeat the following mantra until you feel your negative state of mind just slip away:* </center>

### <center> I am gratitude. I am gratitude.  I am gratitude. </center> ### 
### <center> I feel gratitude. I feel gratitude. I feel gratitude. </center> ###  

---

Another, even easier to remember, mantra is -- **"I'm thankful for...."** and you can go on a recite anything that you can think of that you're thankful for in your life. This can be anything from clean air, to water, ample food, a pet, a job, a car, a friend or significant other...literally anything. 

These mantra are simple enough to easily remember but are very powerful and can be practiced silently anywhere. I particularly like to practice them while walking. There’s something about the rhythmic sound of footsteps that make the recitation of mantra especially effective. 

Recently, a friend and fellow Steemian, Ruth (also known as @natureofbeing), graciously agreed to create a [Yantra](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yantra) for the cover of my meditation book. It's going to be perfect on the book cover.  Thank you, Ruth! 

<center> ![](https://s27.postimg.org/jttsjis9v/Yantra.jpg) </center>

A yantra is a mystical Sanskrit diagram, in a way the visual equivalent to the mantra. Yantra are used for specific purposes such as meditation or to protection from negativity.  This particular yantra was created in watercolor and I can’t wait to see it grace the cover of my soon-to-be-published meditation book, “The Perfect Pause - Meditating Your Way to the Optimal You.”

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend. I'm very grateful for this platform and for all of your continued support!

A great post and a powerful message. Far too many of us spend our lives focusing on what we don't have and fail to see all that we have to be thankful for. 

Upvoted and resteemed.

Thank you, @son-of-satire! We lose so many moments of our lives by not focusing on the present moment and forgetting to be thankful.  I appreciate your support!

I agree.  

I just actually posted something a few mins ago thanking a Steemer for their very nice and out of the blue donation of some Steem to me.

Nice article eric. Side note you have a few random italicized letters in words through out the document, example in your initial paragraph the g in enough and r in everything appear to be italicized. In your second paragraph state the first t in state appears so. I don't know if its actually italicized or just a display irregularity for me... anyway just thought I would let you know!

Thanks @justryme90!  I was having a bit of fun with the typography.  The randomly italicized letters spell out "G-r-a-t-i-t-u-d-e."

I'm making myself stop and 'take in the moment' a lot more this year. Life rushes by too quickly and there is so much to be grateful for that can be missed in our hectic lives. Just to be breathing in the cold winters air reminds me how blessed I am. 
That is a beautiful piece of art Ruth has created too.

Thanks, @opheliafu. Yes, she did a wonderful job with it. I have to figure out how to best integrate it into the bookcover now.

Thank you for this post, Eric! It comes at an important time, as we're leaning into a new year and juggling a dozen things at once... a mantra is such a nice way of reminding one's self to keep it all in perspective :) Also I love Ruth's Yantra!

You're welcome, @voronoi!  This mantra has helped me tremendously through my struggles from trying to make the transition from part-time to full-time writer. Ruth did a wonderful job. She referred a great book designer also, I can't wait to see how the project comes together. Thanks for your comment!

I really agree with you on this. Have you heard of or believe in the Law of Attraction? Gratitude is the biggest take away from that book/documentary.

Excellent and thoughtful post! Gratitude is, indeed, extremely important... and it's especially important to "take moments" during these turbulent times where the focus of so many seems to be on complaining about what ISN'T, rather than being thankful for what actually IS.
