Ho'oponopono: Say thank you anyway

Ho'oponopono: Say thank you anyway
Published: November 25, 2009

This Thanksgiving I just wanted to share with all of you this poem from Mother Teresa.

by Mother Teresa

People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Be good anyway.

Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People need help but will attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.

And this Thanksgiving remember...

It will look like nothing happens when you say Thank you to your enemies (the thoughts playing in you). Say Thank you, Anyway.

    Hi Mabel!
    Wonderful telewebcast on the 25th...Thanks!
    You mentioned what you have learned about the scientific explanation of what's happening when you let go and do the cleaning, about balancing the hemispheres of our brain. I thought you might find this link interesting.


    I have been wearing a patch all day, and it really seems to help me to be more of an observer and to not engage.

    I Love You!

    "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice."
    -- Meister Eckhart

    Perfect Joy!
