A Dozen for Thanksgiving

Shamans Market


In this month where Thanksgiving is celebrated here in the US, Shamans Market looks at some of our favorite teachers and shares their wisdom about thankfulness as we express our gratitude to all our fellow travelers on this beloved planet.

“The heartfelt embrace of Gratitude as a lived spiritual experience provides us the humility necessary for walking with beauty, gently, with deep reverence upon our beloved Mother Earth.”

Oscar Miro Quesada


“When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others.”

Dalai Lama


“Now there are many, many people in the world, but relatively few with whom we interact, and even fewer who cause us problems. So when you come across such a chance for practicing patience and tolerance, you should treat it with gratitude… Just as having unexpectedly found a treasure in your own house, you should be happy and grateful toward your enemy for providing you that precious opportunity. Because if you are ever to be successful in your practice of patience and tolerance, which are critical factors in counteracting negative emotions, it is due to your own efforts and also the opportunity provided by your enemy.”

Dalai Lama XIV


“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”

Eckhart Tolle


“Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.”

Native American Quote


“When you are inspired to be and do your best, you find everything is right in your world. Your influence is operating at its highest level and it is the time to influence others in gratitude.”

Tony Ten Fingers Wanbli Natu’u Oglala Lakota


“Be in a state of gratitude for everything that shows up in your life. Be thankful for the storms as well as the smooth sailing. What is the lesson or gift in what you are experiencing right now? Find your joy not in what’s missing in your life but in how you can serve.”

Wayne Dyer


“‘Be grateful to everyone’ is about making peace with the aspects of ourselves that we have rejected…If we were to make a list of people we don’t like – people we find obnoxious, threatening, or worthy of contempt – we would discover much about those aspects of ourselves that we can’t face… other people trigger the karma that we haven’t worked out.”

Pema Chodron


“Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.”



“Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos — the trees, the clouds, everything.”

Thich Nhat Hanh


“Living in constant love and gratitude is the essence of spirituality.”

Akemi G


“The More grateful you are, the more you get to be grateful about.”

Louise Hay
