Itadakimasu is Japanese for “I have received from on high.” It is good to reminded that whatever we have, whatever we enjoy now, are things that we have just received. One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a person is when he starts believing his own hype and he starts to think that people owe him and that he deserves everything he has. It is dangerous because it is the first step towards utter failure. If you’re going that dangerous path now, stop and pray this prayer, and remember: everything you have, you have received from on high.
