In one of the most influential books I’ve ever read “You’ll See it when you’ll believe it“, the author Wayne Dyer mentions that the first step towards tuning into abundance is to give thanks for everything that you are & everything that you have.Gratitude is a powerful weapon which can single handedly destroy the feelings of jealous,greed,resentment.Whenever a negative thought starts to take its toll on you, just use the weapon of Gratitude,which is available to all humans.
The face of beauty is always present even if others see non-beauty.Hence,the power of gratitude is also available to those who are born in poverty & ignorance.
Another important thing I want to mention is ‘As you practice being thankful,expand the list of things you are thankful for.’
Well,let me explain.If I ask my young brother (who is 15) that who would he like to thank, & he says he is thankful to our parents & his teachers.That is actually very novice of him to say.
The difference between an experienced person & a novice (like my brother) is that, an experienced person is thankful for-
1.Air he breathes,Food & water he consumes.
2.House he lives
4.every person & circumstance that arrived in his life,irrespective of whether they were good or bad.
6.Planet Earth on which he lives.
& you’ll realize his list is endless.
When you’re feeling thankful for all that you see,you are aligned with your source from where everything originates.You can feel it in the shivers that comes while you are appreciating these miracles.When you’re focused on all that surrounds you,you can’t be focused on what’s missing from your world.
Remain in a sate of gratitude from the moment you step out of bed in the morning till the time you come back to bed in the night.Practice it till it becomes a way of your life.It changed my life & several others who followed it & now is your turn to join us.I shall end this with a beautiful quote from Gautam Budha ,
“Let us rise up & be thankful,for if we didn’t learn a lot today at least we learned a little & if we didn’t learn a little at least we didn’t get sick & if we got sick at least we didn’t die.”
