I was recently staying at an Ashram in British Columbia. Each night, the community meets in the 'Temple of Light' to sings songs. For those who are unfamiliar with the words to the various songs, they hand out a little booklet to follow along -- mentioning the page number of the song before begining. As is customary, many of the songs are very simple, having but a few words repeated over and over and over.
They announced, "next we will be singing 'Thank you' on pg 23 (or whatever pg number it was). And so i turned to the page and there were only two words to this song; you can probably guess, the words were 'Thank you'. And we began to sing, accompanied by the harmonium, hand drums, and guitar -- repeating these two words over and over.
I was taken aback immediately by the simplicity and beauty of the song. I couldn't help but to smile.
"THANK YOU!" - again and again. -- How true it is -- gratitude is the best of medicines.
And i admit; I am a sinner - for too often i live from a place of ingratitude, consumed by my own melodrama. In fact, as we rightly consider 'gratitude' as a subjective experience which exists on a contiuum of depth - I surmise that I hardly know what 'gratitude' is at all, that i only know it in a very superficial and limited sense.
And after begging for alms all day, Francis of Assisi placed the scraps of bread that he had gathered on a rock, there in the countryside -- unable to contain himself, weeping before the Lord for His/Her boundless compassion and the 'feast' before him...
