The 8 Graces of Life

Having a grateful heart, we have to be aware of the eight tremendous graces in life and return the blessings when the time comes.

1. The grace from nature

Nature bears us. We live, we take, and we grow in it. That is why ancient people respected nature. They spoke of nature and man being one. They paid their respects to God and spirits and believed in karma. Many modern people now, however, are atheists. They fight to contend with nature and disbelieve karma exists. They will eat their own bitter fruit in the end.

2. The grace from parents

From physically bearing a child for nine months to showering time, energy, and love to raise one after birth, parents give their all. Although hard to repay, we have to respect and treat them well in return.

3. The grace from teachers

From kindergarten to college, our teachers’ impact on us can be crucial and deep. No matter what we aim for our future, the benefits from the guidance of a good teacher are for life. How can we not repay that?

4. The grace from people who recognize your talents

Talents are often seen but talent scouts are not. Being recognized by one or two is something that not many can have the luck or chance in a lifetime. If you are lucky enough to be among one of those being scouted, treasure the chance and the people who make it happen and remember them even after your success.

5. The grace from wise men

Life is full of crossroads. The right choice at the right time that changes life may be very few. Words from a wise man at such a moment can be enlightening and life-saving and enable us to walk on to a brighter future. If you meet those wise men again some days, do convey your gratitude toward them.

6. The grace from people at times of need

Luck and wealth can disappear in the blink of an eye. Anyone can encounter misfortune or helpless situations at any time. You should be grateful to people who are willing to give you a helping hand, may it be physical assistance, money, or just some advice, in your times of need.

7. The grace from husband/wife

A couple is like a pair of birds nesting in the wood. They should support one another and not fly on their own when things happen. Every successful man has a great woman behind him and every happy woman has a good man who sees to her every need. A sweet home takes two to run and the couple should be grateful for each other’s support and company.

8. The grace from siblings

Siblings are like limbs. They are from the same parents, grow up in the same family, and share the same roots. Conflicts among brothers and sisters are unavoidable from time to time, but the bond that connects the family should melt discrepancies away when, in times of need, they need one another.
