quite the puzzle though on the surface it seems not. We tend to conflate sophistication with complexity because
the material world demands so much attention but our most elemental stasis
is peace of mind and selfless forbearance
in the face of panic and uncertainty. Of such is the courage to commit to love minus zero and eschew the pretension 
of a corrupted world; a sickening play for the very soul of mankind..

"The days I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations I have really good days."   Ray Wylie Hubbard
 
Don't know anything about that Hubbard fella, but I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude, or giving thanks lately. Specifically how it benefits one’s attitude, and overall health…lowers cortisol levels…

Many mock the religious who give praise, thanks, gratitude to a higher being as blind sheep. This is wrong thinking. 

Being thankful, including to a higher power, is not about being subservient, but empowered (see above). A good God doesn’t seek or need gratitude, but to empower the individual towards a healthier, fulfilled life.


 



Gratitude isn't necessarily supplication to a spiritual source, so much as its sheer joy at loving what you already have.  Many who survived the Great Depression said "When we were kids, we didn't know we were 'poor.' Everyone else was poor too - so we just thought that was the way things were. We made fun wherever we could find it, most of it in our imaginations."

Indeed. I was struck by his ability to pinpoint the source of his meloncholia; at least that day...

This one really hit me to the core and has become my raison d'etre.  However I can see how people may apply their own meaning to it, I sure did.   Some may say that it is socialist or facist (what the diff?) mantra designed to perpetuate servitude to the state.   I took it as service to the universe and to those in your personal realm.  The notion that your reason for existence is to help, take care of and support or just behave in such a way as to improve all of those you have contact, influence andor responsibility for.   This is how our time should be passed:

From last portion of Statue of Liberty dedication speech in 1886:

 

The rays from this beacon, lighting this
gateway to the continent, will welcome the
poor and the persecuted with the hope and
promise of homes and citizenship. It will
teach them that there is room and brother-
hood for all who will support our institutions
and aid in our development; but that those
who come to disturb our peace and dethrone
our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

Anyone who knows me in person or even on this forum knows I am quite the antithesis of a religious person, but that doesn't mean the Bible does not hold a lot of wisdom:


"Now some cried out one thing, some another, for the assembly was in confusion, and most of them did not know why they had come together." Acts 19:32
