The Attitude of Gratitude
By Jonathan Mathews, Author of Divine Mastery
Gratitude is not merely the greatest of all virtues, but the parent of all others. This important segment of spiritual growth is often side-stepped. The truth is that without gratitude, being thankful, your spiritual path cannot be complete. Why? Because without the unceasing prayer of gratitude one does not experience all the beauty and abundance that life has to pour out upon us. Regular engagement in gratitude will heal the mind and help undo the ego. It is impossible, when engaging in gratitude, to simultaneously suffer or be upset. Without the gratitude attitude, one walks around just partially alive. The truth is, the more thankful you are, the more comes your way!
Related to gratitude is appreciation, so if you consistently look for something or someone to appreciate, even in difficult situations, you can expect your life to change for the better. When you are actively attuned to gratitude and appreciation, you will inevitably uncover more of the same for yourself, bringing you so much joy, optimism, peace, abundance, and harmony that you won't have the time or desire to worry or think about anything negative!
Remember though, that silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone. When you actually EXPRESS appreciation to another, it is a double whammy, because then both you AND they are blessed. What you give to another you give to yourself. Why is that? Because we are truly one and NOT separate. When we really get it, not intellectually but experientially, the idea of oneness, love and caring become natural and very healing for all. Service to EVERYONE becomes a way of life and brings much peace and happiness,"When I give to you, I give to myself" becomes more than just a slogan, but becomes truly realized.
Besides the benefit to you, gratitude will also lead to positive and transformative action in the world, just by your modeling of it for others.
Thank you for BEing Dear Steve, and for all you do for the souls you encounter. Reading your posts has raised my awareness in such a tremendously. I agree with Dr. SohiniBen Shukla that whenever you do good for others you raise your vibration and it gives you some degree of Ascension. When we bless others we receive blessings.
Sending you Divine Blessings of Love and Light
