On Gratitude and Templating

The soul becomes dyed with the color of your thoughts. (Marcus Aurelius)


Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“If you were to choose only one thing to be grateful for, what would it be?”

My beautiful BodyMind.

This immensely intricate system of systems is the one that most influences the quality of our life. 

I think a deep appreciation and concern for our BodyMind is the highest expression of Self-Love, which has three components:

Self-Love
– Self-Awareness
– Self-Care
– Self-Mastery

“Then start every Gratitude practice by expressing Gratitude for your beautiful BodyMind.

You’re familiar with the idea of expressing Gratitude for three things. Turn it into a template [<link; medium read].

Fixed part: (Monad, One Thing)
Thank you for my beautiful BodyMind.

Variable part: (Triad)
Thank you for being Alive. [
Memento mori; Contrasting]
Thank you for my computer.
Thank you for the food.

The fixed part of the template you’ll be accessing most frequently, thus making it most present in your mind.
The variable part, less frequently.

And you can use the template with other things as well.”
