I was in a situation of conflict and argument. The other party did not want to give up on their side of the disagreement and desired to be right. However, there is no patent on the truth. Actually, there are as many truths as there are humans. Beliefs play a dramatic part in the creation of our lives. Ronda Byrne says in her book the Power” “Your beliefs, true or untrue, form your world. What you imagine and feel to be true creates your life, because that is what you’re giving to the law of attraction, and that is what will be returned to you.”
Well, being a seeker of peace and harmony, and knowing that what this protagonist believed to be true was real for him, I merely said “thanks.” Thanks for the perspective unlike my own. Thanks for broadening my horizons. Thanks for making me a more humble person. Thanks for being true to yourself. Thanks for helping me be a better listener. In general, it was a very positive opportunity and deserved a big THANKS.
The idea for a bumper sticker came to me and while making and marketing my bliss flags I finally had the chance to have the “just say thanks” bumpers stickers made. Placed on the back of my car it reminded many followers and tailgaters to be grateful and, perhaps to recognize how ungrateful they may be in the situation at hand. Like when someone is riding your ass because they need to be somewhere in a hurry? And then you meet up with them ten miles up the road.
Not all people who I have given the bumper sticker to have understood and were actually questioning why they should be thankful. Thankful for a screwed up world? Thankful for pollution and destruction of our wonderful earth? Thankful for being raped? Thankful for all the unnecessary bull shit? Thankful for war? Wow. All the more reason to wake up and “Just Say Thanks.”
If the idea of magnetism and the law of attraction is working then it seems we have immense power in our ability to create the world we really want. Just saying “Thanks” is the first, middle and last step. It is an ongoing dialogue in our spinning minds.
