Have you ever just stood and watched and listened to a robin sing? He throws back his perfect little head and pours out of that tiny beautifully formed body, the most beautiful melody; a sound that is somewhat melancholy and nostalgic. His whole little body vibrates visibly from the sound, and the echoes ring back to your own ears, as one. Then…as if he knows he has made a pleasurable sound, and pleased you, he looks directly your way, tilts his head in recognition (of the same), and continues with his melody….
I am grateful for the sounds of the Universe that inspire me…..

I am so greatful and thankful that the universe has reveled itself to me at a very young age. I have been able to help and feel great compassion for all the creatures as a result of the knowledge I have aquired over the years. I am greatful and thankful for all the times I have walked through the valley as they have brought me to learn more quickly how to love with greater compassion and urgency. LOVE is the greatest gift we can aquire and the greatest lesson we can learn is to love unconditionally and have forgivness in our heart. these 2 things that the universe has given us will heal any thing that is wrong in our lives. ALWAYS GREATFUL AND THANKFUL.

Christine Lopez i share your awe of the stars in the morning. i am grateful again
Meerkat on November 19, 2009 at 8:14 am
Animals. Not a day goes by when I do not catch my breath in awe at their beauty and perfection. And their unadulterated goodness. Indeed, I have come to the conclusion that animals are angels in disguise, who have come to ease our pain and teach us about unconditional love. There is much much more about animals than meets the eye …
Meerkat on November 19, 2009 at 8:16 am
I am really, really grateful for dr Deepak’s writings and this website.
And mainly, I am grateful for gratitude. Without gratitude, where would we be?
Blessings to all of you!

I would be more grateful if the sad starving abused people of this world wre to get even a token amount of the decent life they will likely never have.
Fred Imafidon on November 19, 2009 at 8:58 am
I am grateful to God the infinite intelligence. For a new awakening. I have been a Christian all my life but I have always felt that something is missing about the knowledge of God, self and relationship with fellowman. I have been married for 9 years (will be 10years May 6th 2010) with 3 children but has been an unfulfilling relationship with constant arguments.
Last month i came across Dr. Chopra’s book “How To Know God”. I must confess that it reintroduced God that is bigger than every religion to me. I got a new knowledge of myself, my life, everything and everyone around me.
Love grew in my heart. I saw my wife and children in a new light, Peace and joy returned to my home. Everything just changed.
I am still learning but I must confess a tremendous change in everything around and about me.
Sandra Bullock on November 19, 2009 at 9:06 am
I am grateful for today – that I continue to grow and be enlightened. I am grateful that I have rediscovered God and understanding of the Universe, knowing that God lives within me and I live within God…it brings me great peace.
Joanna on November 19, 2009 at 9:24 am
I am grateful for my daughter, Ciara!, for my sobriety, for my Mother, for my friends, my neighbors, computers, hope, faith in my higher power. Love and choices.
Please help me to remain grateful today and to own my part in what I do and who I come in contact with.
Shirley Talken on November 19, 2009 at 9:59 am
I feel great gratitude for my spiritual family, and I consider those at the Chopra Center to be a part of it. I am struck with awe that people like Deepak Chopra exist in human form to guide us toward fuller God- consciousness. The world is changing because of the love, peace and compassion extended worldwide as humanity awakens to its purpose.
Rissa Cloud on November 19, 2009 at 10:22 am
Gratitude for Health and Healing, and unknown blessings already on their way!
Indra Karr Singh wrote so eloquently, that I give thanks for a heart present as hers. The many other peaceful thoughts too bring us a directional front.
May we all leave a circular trail behind us. KEEP THE CIRCLE STRONG!
Maureen on November 19, 2009 at 10:33 am
I am a spring person and I love to see new beginnings, therefore I am grateful for babies. They are the new life and new beginning. I pray for those who care for them and commend those who take in the unwanted. God bless the babies and God bless you!!
Clau on November 19, 2009 at 10:58 am

I am grateful for my wonderful family, for my health, for my ability to help others, especially as a nurse working with the mentally ill, and for being warm, fed, clothed and sheltered………

Priya on November 19, 2009 at 2:18 pm
I am grateful for being self-reliant, able-bodied and ‘normal’.
Basima Farhat on November 19, 2009 at 2:59 pm
I am grateful for those hundreds and possibly thousands of people that have prayed or sent offerings of love and well wishes for the healing of my grandson Farid Aiden. I am honored and humbled by your grace

I am grateful for the birds sitting in the tree in my beautiful garden. I am grateful for my husband and my beautiful daughter. And my lovley little cat.
And I am grateful for singing the song of life another day.
Christine on November 19, 2009 at 4:57 pm
I´m grateful for my relationship to my four grandchildren, for the relationship to my husband and my daughters. I´m grateful for my friends, who swap Journey processes with me. I´m grateful for the health of my body and my soul. I´m grateful for my little group of friends who join me reading every day another chapter of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and follow every day one of the Laws. I´m grateful for twitter, where I found this newsletter. I´m grateful for my computer, where I can write these words……
Les on November 19, 2009 at 6:32 pm
I feel deeply grateful for six days in ICU when my awareness expanded! All fear was suddenly gone, including any fear of death. I was lifted above the programming from childhood, above my ego, above my current physical condition to feel the joy of my higher self. It changed my life!
DocRegina on November 19, 2009 at 7:10 pm
I am grateful for change.
Helen on November 19, 2009 at 7:54 pm
I’m so grateful to wake up every morning realizing that I have been forgiven…..through the blood of Christ my sins are washed way, I can begin the day anew. I thank God for forgiveness, and pray for some kind of usefullness in the coming day.
Laura Duggan on November 19, 2009 at 10:44 pm
I am grateful for my illness, without it I would never have searched for enlightenment and fulfillment. I am grateful for my spiritual teachers, including Dr Chopra and Eckhart Tolle who have helped me discover and recognise the peace that lives inside of me and my ability to heal myself. I am grateful for my beautiful partner and his cancer. I am so lucky to have someone who does not mind in the slightest that I believe in things that he is not sure of, and he is slowly starting to open up to them. I am grateful for nurses – you are all amazing!
I am grateful for the time I have to figure out what my calling is. I am grateful that I will discover this soon …or later, whatever.
I am grateful for all of these inspiring comments everyone has made! So many beautiful, peaceful and moving thoughts have flashed into my mind whilst reading all of these. You have reminded me of so many more things that I am grateful for.
Lavonne on November 19, 2009 at 10:46 pm
My heart is full of gratitude for being created by God to love and experience the beautiful universe. I’m grateful for wonderful family and friends, health and abundance, an experience of being unwell a year ago that has led me to a deeper knowledge of myself and God. So many blessings came from and continue to come from that time of being unwell. It’s truly amazing. I thank God every morning saying “this is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it”. I’m thankful for this website and the guided meditations!!
Liz on November 20, 2009 at 12:53 am
I am grateful for (re) finding Ayurveda and the flowing/ healing that has become a cornerstone for my life. My increased awareness of all that supports me is uplifting.
Paul on November 20, 2009 at 1:09 am
I am grateful at the very moment my eyes open when I wake up in the morning. I thank God for everything especially the first breath in my waking state. I also thank for everything that has been pre-destined and will come to be. I am grateful for the life I have and I am not ashamed of expressing myself even if its against the cultural and social “rules” if my society. I live my life as genuine as I can without getting on the way of somebody living their life as genuinely as I am.
Shaika on November 20, 2009 at 1:35 am
I am grateful to Allah and the Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, who sacrificed all his live to show me the way I should live.
I am grateful to my family and friends who supported me all through my life and made who I am today..
I am grateful to Effat University for opening their doors to me when I was a student and an employee too.
Thank you all for making life easier and spreading the feeling for love, care and appreciation
Have a grateful life.
Tara on November 20, 2009 at 5:45 am
I’m grateful for having good parents, siblings, a loving husband and children. Grateful for everything God has given me: a beautiful earth, food. air,water, sunshine, birds, flowers, butterflies, fish. mountains and springs. In fact everything is a blessing to me and I’m grateful to everyone who help us to make our daily living easier: the labourer, baker, greengrocer, milkman, shopkeeper, teacher, preacher, policeman, doctor, banker, plumber, gardener. waste refuse collector. I’m grateful to everyone and for everything. The list is endless.
Ted on November 20, 2009 at 5:54 am
I am so grateful being a part of connected universe, with the opportunity to share this connection with family and friends. I am grateful for my journey toward a more enlightened world view and all of the great teachers like Deepak and David. Keep up the great work!
Kashmeera on November 20, 2009 at 8:38 am
I am thankful for our home on Mother Earth, my family, friends and all of life’s wondrous creations.
I am also grateful that we are all part of one big family and it is the power of LOVE that helps us to grow and evolve in through lifes’ amazing journey.
brainard b. on November 20, 2009 at 9:37 am
Greetings – I am grateful first to Infinite Consciousness and the Self realization that I am. Second, as my journey unfolds I experience a deeper expression of love,compassion, grace, and forgiveness for myself and humanity as a whole. Third, my wife and children,family, friends,and my place of spiritual awakening. Last yet not least, the profound guidance you all at the Chopra Center offer.
sadhana nandkeolyar on November 20, 2009 at 12:15 pm

Jacqueline on November 20, 2009 at 2:14 pm
I am grateful for each glorious day and thankful to my omnipotent
God that I am healthy..I am in awe of the miracles that surround me
daily.. a newborn’s cry,it never ceases to amaze me.( I have 3 children, 7grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren and have been blessed to be present at each grandchild’s birth)
the blooming of a rose, the leafing of the trees in springtime, the colors of the leaves in autumn,the soundless snow blanketing the earth in winter, the endless
moving of the sea, the vastness of the deserts, the magnificence of the mountains..Everything is a miracle and a wonder to me and I am so blessed to be part of it all..
Most of all I am grateful for those men and women who put their lives in jeopardy every day so that I may continue to witness these miracles.
Asma on November 20, 2009 at 3:19 pm
I am grateful that God gave me the ability to use my good senses to help me through difficult and trying times. I am still amazed how things seem to work out for the better when we let go and let things happen for the way they should. Life is so much better when it’s not robotic and that nature takes it’s course. It would be very boring if we all were controlled by machines all the time, thank god for nature……..otherwise we would all be robots….
Kathi on November 20, 2009 at 4:48 pm
I am grateful for the beautiful sunset that I am watching from my front porch. The sun as it was setting made the water as sparkly as the fireworks on the 4th of July. Then as it went lower, it turned the sky a wonderful mix of dark blue, light blue, pink and grey. Every day I see the beauty all around me in nature, my children, my siblings, my friends, and strangers I meet. I appreciate such abundance and all who share it with me as well as those who look at it but don’t yet see it. Life is amazing!
emily on November 20, 2009 at 4:57 pm
I am so grateful for music and the gifts that God has bestowed upon all these talented singers/musicians who bring me so much joy.
kim on November 20, 2009 at 9:07 pm
I am grateful for my God given talents…oh what a gift!
Viola on November 21, 2009 at 5:16 pm
I am grateful for that hot cup of coffee in the morning and listening to some inspirational jazz music as I start my day. I am always grateful in the afternoon for my long walks around the lake. I am surely grateful for the hearty meals with my family and our laughs before going to bed at night. However, beside those outer joys I am truly grateful for my inner love for life that full my heart with childlike wonders as I go through this journey every night.
rahul on November 22, 2009 at 3:44 am
I am grateful to God, who has made things easy for me and made be realise that thing could have been much worst than they are now.
When i realised this, i stopped compalining and start thanking.
Sherry Wiggins-Baker on November 22, 2009 at 7:12 pm
I am grateful for the power of choice. More so for the freedom that we have here in America. We can choose peace, love,joy, happiness, to see things differently. It provides a conduit for the experience of heaven on earth and being in oneness with all that there is. This same choice allows us to choose to believe that…..Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God. I am so grateful for choice.
Beth Anne on November 22, 2009 at 10:36 pm
I am grateful for my loving family – my ever-patient husband, my children who forgive my many imperfections, my sister, my parents and my brothers (even the one who will not speak to me). Each have taught me many things and challenged me to better myself.
I am grateful for being able to keep my home in spite of my job loss, for the modest success of my new practice, and for the many people who supported me along the way, including my clients.
Finally, I am grateful for the beautiful places I see on a daily basis. The horses we drive by, the trees bowing over a narrow country lane, and the sunshine when we get it. Thank you God!
Sue on November 22, 2009 at 10:46 pm
I am grateful that I can see and appreciate beauty in the world, even when I am being challenged by situations that might once have defeated me.
Diane on November 23, 2009 at 2:37 pm
I am grateful for goosebumps.
Martina Pook on November 23, 2009 at 8:16 pm
I am grateful to have lived a live coming from utter darkness of pain, abuse and fear to utter bliss and happiness.
For a man in my live who gives nothing but love, respect and harmony and who loves me exactly the way I am.
I am grateful for my awareness of knowing what has been given to me no matter what is was and to have learned that love is the greatest reason.
Manpreet Kaur on November 24, 2009 at 8:25 am
I am grateful and constantly in awe of the fact that life is always so perfectly laid out by the Creator. There are times when the circumstances around us make us feel less than grateful when we wake up to face another day, but I have found that when you believe that there is always something bigger and unfathomable out there looking out for you, every piece of the life puzzle fits in and makes perfect sense. I am grateful to the Source for holding me in His/Her hands and to humanity as a whole because He/She resides in every one of us.
tuma on November 24, 2009 at 9:23 am
I am grateful for each day and for the strenght I feel, when everybody around me seem to worry for me…
I am thankful for my ex-colleague who introduced me to Chopra writings in 2001, that marked a new era in my life
I am grateful for all the opportunities and challenges in my life. They made me who I am
I am thankful for my family, for my parents’ dignity and courage, for my lovely son and my dearest friend.
I am thankful for the little child who kept smiling to me on my way to work this morning.
