“Gratitude is one of the most powerful human emotions. Once expressed, it changes attitude, brightens outlook, and broadens our perspective.” ― Germany Kent
Do you have days when you wake and wonder why am I here? What on earth am I supposed to be striving for, working for – just what is my real purpose? “How will I know what my purpose is?”
I believe we are here on purpose and in the exact calculation of the Universe.
I am certain if this supposed to be different, it would be. Hands down. Wouldn’t you agree?
If we were honest and look at how the realm of the spirit works, we would find it difficult to refute. We all know people who have had “close calls” and yet lived; while there were others who didn’t.
This is where my gratitude begins. I let it begin with me where I am right this moment. That I exist and that you’re here with me now, is not a coincidence.
Gratitude is the attitude some of us use to change our vantage point. Instead of seeing ourselves in the valley of self-pity, regardless of how bad we think things are, we feel certain others remain buried in hardships, and know we are not alone. Someone always is in worse shape than we are, and yet they rise.
Our change of perspective presents as we move above the tentacles of loathsome thoughts. We act as if we believe there are no mistakes in our Creators world. Only changes in perspective. As we begin to take comfort in our new way of thinking, our actions follow. We become grateful.
We use discernment of messages we allow to infiltrate our thinking since this is where change begins.
In his book, Inspiration, Your Ultimate Calling, Dr. Wayne Dyer implores us on page 72, to remember “we’re already connected to everything that we think is missing from our life.” Gratitude is one way of being able to see what is missing and, with our words and highest imaginings, we make them our reality. One way we make them real is to write them before us. Visit Journaling Basics here for more information. Gratitude comes alive on paper first, and then a part of who we are because seeing them is knowing they were already there. Writing down gratitudes becomes a confirmation of our goodness.
Dr. Dyer says on page 78, “When you trust in your inner vision, you’re trusting the same wisdom that created you.” This statement reassures me that when we spot it, we’ve got it. Now, all we have to do is bring this thinking into the light. Practice makes it possible.
Once we find gratitude, our hearts soften as we accept possibilities that what we have received is a gift beyond measure. We look for ways to pass it on, to expand and seek more because our life in gratitude brings us closer to our true purpose.
What are you grateful for today, and every day?
