We all have someone we wish to thank-
for love, for pain, for lessons, for wisdom, for life experiences.

We wouldn't be be who we are without these people-
so thank them.

It doesn't matter if years have passed,
if you cannot for any reason contact them directly.


Speak from the heart.

Thank them.

You may be amazed at how much lighter you'll feel.




Examples:


- Thank you(.)(!)(;)


- Thank you for teaching me how to read music.


- Thank you for the quarter.


- Thank you for screaming at me for years-
it taught me to stand up for myself and grow.


- Dear stranger, thank you for listening.


- Thank you for the gift of your love.


- Thank you for the anonymous flower.


- I thank you from the bottom of my heart for _________.





A few rules, suggestions & why I created this community:

Welcome!

I created this community because I felt inspired to say thank you.
To those who have effected me, to those who have helped shape my life.
I imagine that if more people could find the will to be courageous
and put their true thoughts out there, there would be less heavy hearts,
less resentment, self-loathe, fear and regret.
If you find yourself unable to speak your mind directly and openly
to those who have left their marks on your life,
thank them in a way that is meaningful to you-
write it here, spread paint onto a canvas.
Perhaps posting here will inspire greater sharing of gratitude in your everyday life.

I wish this to be a revolution-
reaching far beyond the confines of the internet.

Namaste!


but what is this Namaste?

"Namaste is an Indian expression used as a greeting or upon parting,
by putting the palms of the hands together in prayer position.
It means, “I honor the Spirit in you which is also in me.”

This, of course, is also a way of saying,
“I recognize that we are all equal.”

-Deepak Chopra


"I honor the place in you
in which the entire Universe dwells,

I honor the place in you
which is of Love, of Truth, of Light and of Peace,

When you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
we are One."

-Namaste Yoga




Community Rules


- Be Honest.

This is a place to simply say Thank You.

Everything in life can be interpreted as a gift-
everything we experience can be interpreted as a lesson.
Everyone we've ever met could be interpreted as a teacher.

Take the time to be open and honest with yourself
and share your gratitude.

"Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive,
I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others;
to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others,
I am not going to get angry or think badly about others.
I am going to benefit others as much as I can."

- The Dalai Lama



-Be creative!

Feel free to post your gratitude in the form of pictures & photographs-
art of any medium- paint, poetry, ink & song.
Please respect the privacy of others when posting photos.

- Please, no direct names.
If you wish to thank someone directly,
whisper it into a dandelion puff and exhale
or write a note and send it their way.

Metaphorical pseudonyms are welcome-
but overt slander will not be tolerated.

-Use LJ cuts at your discretion.
Keep in mind whats work safe.

-You may comment anonymously,
but you must post using a registered journal.
Please comment with conscience.




When eating bamboo sprouts,
remember the man who planted them.

~Chinese Proverb
