An Attitude of Gratitude

January 2, 2010 by admin  
Filed under Inspiration

Hold on to the center
and make up your mind to rejoice
in this paradise called life
.”
? Lao-tzu

I believe that Wayne Dyer may have been the first to coin the phrase, “An attitude of gratitude,” and so it is with great admiration and respect for him that I, too, honor this wonderful saying.

Gratitude is so much more than just the words “thank you.” It is the very core of a soul affirming its connection to the greatest and highest power in the Universe; and it is my belief that the power of this connection is what miracles are made of.

So many of us “ask” and then “wait” and then “thank.” What gratitude really is, however, is a constant state of appreciation; a constant affirmation that what is already before us is the gift. As Albert Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Reality is whatever we believe it is. And when our reality is a certainty of miracles, miracles are the only things we will ever see. In other words, we can choose to live in a constant state of wishing and waiting, or we can choose to be thankful for every miracle that is before us wherever we are.

Miracles are as much a human responsibility as they are a divine accomplishment. When we do not feel connected to the everyday accomplishments of Infinite Grace, we experience the opposite of connection and abundance, and we live in a constant state of separation and lack.

There is nothing “over there” that is not right here, right now. Even if we cannot yet see it, when we trust and are grateful for all Divine Accomplishment, every miracle we can imagine will emerge directly from a miracle that already exists.

Robert Fulghum says, “The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.” The “water” is gratefulness. Use gratitude to tend whatever it is you already have.

Wherever you are there is a miracle happening. Look for it on your own side of the fence, because that’s where your miracles are. Everything you could possibly desire already exists. Be thankful. Be thankful with your heart and your soul. Perhaps the gift of a magnificent flower is within the tiny seed that you have forgotten to water today and, because it was not tended to, it never blossomed into the miracle of a rare and beautiful saffron rose.

Whatever eludes us in this lifetime eludes us because we are not attentive to it; our focus is on what we are not receiving instead of what we could be giving.

Do not wait for the sun to set before you are grateful for the day that is before you. Do not wait to receive the gold before you give thanks for the sunlit path beneath your feet. Pray in the morning. Give thanks as the sun rises. Let your soul sing out loud; think, speak and see from the eyes of gratitude; and let your heart give more as each miracle arrives.

Be powerful… Use your ability to be able to be grateful.

Be thankful, every morning, that you are being given another day, another chance?another extraordinary pathway of moments…

Tend to the coming of a new day. Know that your gold is wrapped in the colors of a sunrise; grateful that you are here, today, to receive the miracle of dawn.
