THE CIRCLE…Winnegrad

To persuade someone to your perspective is done by showering them with understanding, care, love and GRATITUDE. The honor of giving and the humility of receiving, all is a CIRCLE. The CULTURE OF GRATITUDE is a gift; that the CIRCLE of reciprocity flows back again and again. This gift comes back to you, in the form of GRATITUDE, RESPECT, WISDOM and EMPATHY. Which then awakens your heart.


THANK YOU, is a simple phrase. When someone gives you something, when someone says something to you, whether instructive or critically you should follow up with a thank you. Every encounter that you have had with another person, whether positive or negative, was a learning lesson that you should show GRATITUDE for. You did not become whom you are independently. You have to give credit to all and say thank you. That is the CULTURE OF GRATITUDE, THE CIRCLE.


The Onondaga people of the Iroquois Nation have an expression; NYA WENHA. This means THANKS TO THE CREATOR. Every time you give something to them they say NYA WENHA. When you give a compliment to an Onondagan such as; you played a good game of lacrosse, you sung nicely today, you look well today, they say NYA WENHA. They show GRATITUDE to the CREATOR. All is in a CIRCLE.


The CIRCLE is important, everything in nature is with a CIRCLE. The spinning of the earth, the rise of the sun, the seasons. Everything comes back to you. Whatever gifts you have, and you absolutely do, thank all that have helped you, even the slightest effect, complete THE CIRCLE. Those people would certainly like to hear from you. Doing so the CIRCLE is complete and you will be showered with the honor of receiving.
