Do You Know The Difference Between Gratitude and Love?

Many people mistake the feeling of “Gratitude” for “Love.” They think when someone is good to them, helps them, praises them and is generous to them, they feel love for that person. But, in fact, when you actually love someone, an emotion that quivers the heart is present. Additionally, the mind is moved to be good to the one you love. You become attentive to their needs. Do things for them, which make them happy, help them have an easier time in life. Offering words of comfort, encouragement and praise without any expectation.
So, don’t mistake your love for someone, when it’s really gratitude you feel for their love and kindness. If you claim to love, then your behaviour must be inline with the feeling you call love. Otherwise, it’s just you taking and taking and praising the other for giving.

Mindfulness for First Responders

Our First Responders not only face life-threatening situations but see some pretty horrendous things as well.  Due to this, many of them are left with sleepless nights and PTSD.  This then leads to divorce, suicide, and many other painful outcomes. So what can we do to help those who have helped us?

Studies have shown Mindfulness to be the answer. This fundraising campaign’s goal is to raise enough money to give prepaid classes to police, firefighters and EMTs. Join us in making a difference to these brave men and women today.

Veterans and First Responders Stress Release Initiative

Kuroosh Compassionate Recovery Program

Compassion is hard to hold on to while experiencing fear, worry, and chaos within the family system of addiction. Your support can help develop the heart of compassion and compassionate boundaries, which create the space for loving relationships.

Practicing loving/kindness, compassion and non-judgmental attitude helped change Kuroosh’s heart and direction. He became kinder, more generous, less selfish and isolated, more aware of others and how he could regulate his emotions and anxieties. He took opportunities to serve and motivate others. Through compassion practices, his demeanor and attitude towards others blossomed into gratitude, appreciation, and kindness.

You and your loved one can experience this as well. A respectful relationship. A compassionate and heartful interaction while drawing and holding firm boundaries to protect yourself.

“Learning about the obstacles to being happy and being able to identify them when I am experiencing them has helped me feel more calm and peaceful. As a result, I am better able to identify when I am making a story out of my struggles (obstacles) and can release myself from being fixated (stuck) on their repetitive story. As a result, I am able to be present in the here and now rather than get carried away in the story or obstacle.”

so seamlessly with sensitivity, calmness, joy, dedication, and above all, kindness.” ∼ Peggy Palmer

“Somehow through the teachings and reinforcing the wisdom given in class I have been able to let go of the idea that I must suffer. I can see my reality in the moment and the ability to choose to not suffer which sometimes comes as a result of not wanting to see my reality and in my suffering my imaginings of the negative grow.

“Mindfulness has brought me a new level of calm!! Accepting what is. Bringing love and kindness to myself has given me a new found freedom”
