Developing An Attitude of Gratitude!


In order for any relationship to become and remain successful, the parties involved must be able to relate to each other and be “in sync” with one another. They must be able to communicate harmoniously, sharing both in equal benefits .  Divine Intelligence - The formless entity, God, our Source of all things is the primary reason for the way things work. You can say it all starts with Him.
By developing an attitude of gratitude, we express how thankful we are for the ability to live and have an endless supply of the things that we need and want. This is what truly opens up the door to becoming connected to Source or to ‘the Mind of God’. God loves a humble, thankful heart. If we are closer to the source of all things good – closer to abundance, to joy, prosperity, wisdom, truth, strength, happiness, love, etc., then quite naturally we will begin to receive more of  all of these things. Gratitude is the key to becoming closer in connection with our Source.
A few months ago, I read, “The Science of Getting Rich”, by Wallace D. Wattles. Although the book was written in 1910, making it more than 100 yrs. old, it holds many truths that still apply today because one thing is certain: Divine Intelligence/God/ Source/ Infinite Intelligence NEVER changes.  In the book, Wattles talks about how a man can never really reach and remain a success if he is striving to get ahead on a competitive plane. This life is not a competition, it is Creation at its best! Many say that Creation is complete but others, like myself, believe that creation occurs each and every day. God has made us in His own likeness. God is the Ultimate Creator and so for this reason, we too must be creators as well. There is no need really to compete for what we want because believe it or not, there is more than enough to go around. The world has endless abundance for all who inhabit it. When we remain grateful for this, thanking Him for His endless supply, we remind ourselves subconsciously that there is no need to compete! This is what keeps us on a ‘creative plane’. We can then relax, move with a creative ‘edge’ and with confidence knowing that what we want is practically already there. Faith is what follows. Faith follows gratitude.

A big part of the Law of Attraction is the timeless Law of Gratitude. Newton’s Law, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite re-action.” The book goes on to say, “ The grateful outreaching of your mind in thankful praise to The Supreme is a liberation or expenditure of force. It cannot fail to reach that to which it is addressed and the reaction is an instantaneous movement towards you. Draw nigh unto God and He will draw nigh unto you.” You will always be in good standing if you adopt an attitude of gratitude.

 

Christ never ceased to thank his Father while on Earth. Even he knew that by doing this, he remained connected to the power of the Almighty. Gratitude reminds us that we don’t have to fight. Infinite Source has made all things for us and wants us to have and enjoy them. Failure to exercise gratitude results in misery, discouragement and dis-satisfaction. It becomes overwhelming when we feel as though there is not enough. Once our human minds go to that bad place, we automatically begin to subliminally attract more of exactly what we DON’T WANT! We are thinking substance and thinking substance always takes the form of what it thinks about.



Be grateful now! Be thankful right now no matter where you are or what you have. Think about the best that God has offered us and do thank Him for it. Thank Him for the wisdom and knowledge that we share, for the love and connection to each thing. Thank Him for our creative abilities and advancement each new day. Mostly, thank Him for His abundance of love, mercy, bountiful blessings and a second chance at life!


What am I thankful for today?
  • For life, love, health and  my family and loved ones health.
  • For leading me to great teachings from those here today as well as those before me and to come.
  • For you reading this post or watching the video.
  • For everything else; the good and what I perceived as bad because it’s all part of His infinite plan which is why I am here today.
  • For the curiosity and discovery of who I am, although I know it is just the beginning.
  • For giving me the passion, courage and determination to find what I love and am good at and to just DO IT!
  • For the ability and opportunities to do what I love freely in this age of technological advancement, international relations and awakening spiritual consciousness.
