Question: How can I become a divine runner filled with gratitude?Sri Chinmoy: Before you run, think of yourself as a divine runner. Before you run, think of yourself as a gratitude-seed which will eventually grow into a tiny plant and, at long last, into a tree. Before you run, think of what you want to achieve or become and meditate on that very thing. If today you meditate on a particular subject or object, then tomorrow you will most assuredly grow into that very reality.
