From a previous blog entry a few years ago:
Have you ever heard anyone say, “Wow! I just put out my eye with a nail-gun! Thank you Lord (Universe, Goddess, Higher Self, Coincidence Coordinators, or whatever the person happens to hold sacred)!”
Probably you haven’t. Not many people know it’s a profoundly effective way of causing pain to diminish or vanish entirely.
I usually don’t even remember to pass it on, though my Y2K and since friend, Jeanne, has seen it work. She might use it.
- Go find a hammer, put your thumb, thumbnail upward, on the front step.
- Draw the hammer over your shoulder and smash hell out of that thumbnail as hard as you’re able.
- The moment your vision changes to a nuclear fireball, shift gears mentally and say, “Thank you Lord.”
Doesn’t matter whether you’re a Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Taoist or atheist. You’ll be amazed.
See for yourself.
I don’t know of any better demonstration of the power of gratitude.
