Natural wholeness
Gratitude for no reason
In Your Middle Ground


When we discover the natural wholeness in the center of our being, we begin to see and relate to the world differently.

We recognize that no matter what is going on in our life, or the experiences of the past, we become less attached to what we want, and are much more grateful for what we have.

This is where contentment lies.

It is an inner state of being, rather than one dependent on the external world’s influence.

Independent of circumstances we can be happy for no reason.

  7. I love that feeling of gratitude and not having a specific reason. It just washes over you and you catch yourself stopping and being thankful.

  8. Yes! Here’s to be happy for no reason at all!

    “Happiness is the goal of all goals, and it’s a state of consciousness that already exists within you. Happiness for a reason is a form of misery because the reason can be taken away from you at any time. To be happy for no reason is the happiness you want to experience.”
    ~ Deepak Chopra

  9. This got me thinking of Atiśa’s ‘Seven Points Tor Training The Mind And Heart’.

    “Consider all phenomena to be dreams.
    Don’t be swayed by outer circumstances.
    Be grateful to everyone.
    Don’t brood over the faults of others.
    Explore the nature of unborn awareness.
    At all times simply rely on a joyful mind.
    Don’t expect a standing ovation”


I'd love to hear from you ...
