Gratitude is defined by Oxford dictionaries as “the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.”
Numerous studies conducted by researchers such as Shawn Achor, have demonstrated that being grateful can have powerful effects on our neurochemistry to help us be more positive and to turn on the higher learning centers. Acupuncture has also been shown by study to improve depression and increase positivity.
By feeling gratitude and appreciation any person or organization can “return kindness”. This appreciation leads to greater and greater energy flowing outward to accomplish goals. This is much like the upward and outward flow of Kidney Yang.
Winter is a time when each of us spend more time indoors. This lends itself to a time for introspection. May each of use these times to find gratitude and use that energy to accomplish goals that enrich the lives of all beings.
