An Image of Gratitude

a post by: Matthew Goodman, MA BCB

This image of bowing to the earth is a powerful symbol of my personal practice of gratitude, loving-kindness, and self-compassion. At the same time as we bow our heads and join our hands as a sign of gratitude- for our practice, for our bodies, or whatever we choose- we are humbly bowing to “what is.” Somehow this acceptance of “what is” creates a warming of the heart that allows for the generation of self-compassion and loving-kindness towards others and all “that is.”
