I have food in the fridge, clothes to wear and a sheltered safe place to live …
   so I am richer than 75% of our world

I have money in the bank and some in my purse with spare change around
   that puts me among the top 8% of the wealthy

I woke up this morning more healthy than sick …
   I am more blessed than the millions who will not survive this week

I have never experienced the horrors of war, the degradation of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of real starvation …
so I am well ahead of 500 million people in our world

I can pursue spiritual practice of my own choice without fear of arrest, torture or death; those that harass are ignorant …
   so I’m more blessed than three billion others!

I can smile at others and radiate gratitude …
   so I’m very blessed because most can but don’t bother

I can read this so I’m more blessed than over two billion who cannot read at all! And imagine no net access …

So enjoy my day
Rejoice in my blessings
and remind others of how truly fortunate we are
