My Ungrateful Life

Posted on Updated on

Millions at work for me for my life

Humans, animals, birds, bees, eggs,fish, insects, trees and plants

Farm produce, animal food, milk, oil, honey, aqua food and fruits

All for my best of living and comforts

One more day sanctioned to breathe prana the life-giving force

I consume with no gratitude

I am ashamed for mine is an ungrateful life

    i am nature
    in the nature
    the soul and the spirit
    are in me
    not out there
    i obey the soul
    through the gift of dreams
    whose author is the soul itself

      Well I talking about this body and how it consumes everything that is in nature, as if all is meant for him.
      You speak of the soul which is not connected to the body.
      The soul is there that is why is the body, it is just a vehicle.

        Thank you for your reply.

        the body
        is completely natural
        the body has to
        for survival
        the environment
        to customize

        the soul and spirit is within us
        not out there
        Body and soul are an inseparable unit

          When we die
          body dies
          soul and spirit doesn’t
          as it is immortal

          all this consumption
          for the body
          an attitude of gratitude
          is need of hour

            Thank you for your response

            The living
            want to live
            pass along

            i am time
            for a short time
            the goal is death

            the soul is in front of me
            the soul is after me
            the origin of all life

            during the time
            in our everyday life
            we must
            if we only
            simple people are
            work hard
            so that we
            remain survivable

            many people
            especially children
            die today
            every second
            starving to death

            i am my mother
            thankful for
            the gift
            of my life

    This is a beautiful post! Many people say there is nothing to be grateful for. The world 🌎 is full of problems, a dystopia full of fears and impending doom. 😰 Your blog post debunks that with a powerful attitude of gratitude! 🙏

    Thanks Dave. The problems in this world are mainly because we do not show our gratitude to what we have got from nature or from any person. If that attitude changes then the World will be good place.

    I just learned that 40% of the food goes in the trash. It is a shame. To me this is a no-go. In case there are leftovers, they are wrapped and stored for later. But I know that the awareness of this has been rising. By being vegetarian, I want to honor our animal friends and their gifts for us.

      Just imagine the people deprived of what we have, I mean in so many countries and refugee camps. I was astonished that you are a veggie. Good Yaa.
      My mother was a leftover specialist, next day the same would be turned into a totally different dish much tastier than the previous. Blessings and Hugs

        It is a shame, a bit shame, that even doesn’t meet the core of the tragedy, that food and water are a priviledge to have. And many don’t even notice how gifted they are. Let’s do our part as good as we can!

      Yes as it is in abundance and can be bought by money. My illustrations are always to make clear my feelings and writings.
      They are real gifts, thinking of those who are deprived of, they are available to see in so many countries and refugee camps.
      On a personal note your commenting has been more elaborative and to the point of what it should be. Congrats. Previously it was just a word or a sentence. Take it as a compliment.

    Wonderful sharing. We nourish our body by adopting different methods, eating rich diet, take fresh air for our sustenance etc but spend very little time for the benefit of our soul or spirit. Meaning, we just exhaust our energy from the ingested food on impermanent things but spend very little little for our SELF.

    I do not believe that you are ungrateful. You would not have written such words if you were. It is true that we can sometimes take things for granted.
