Gratitude is the Transformational Key we can all utilize to change our lives and the world around us. In this month of Thanksgiving here are some quotes to further inspire our own gratitude experience from a Louise Hay Book appropriately titled Gratitude, A Way of Life.
"Gratitude is indeed like a gearshift that can move our mental mechanism from obsession to peacefulness, from stuckness to creativity, from fear to love. The ability to relax and be mindfully present in the moment comes naturally when we are grateful." ~ Joan Borysenko. Ph.D.
"Transcendental Gratitude, however, goes beyond social conventions. Instead of feeling grateful to someone, we feel grateful for them - for God or Spirit working through them. We begin to feel grateful for everyone and everything that arises in our lives. The feeling uplifts us, embraces us, and helps us uplift and embrace others in the recognition that we are, ultimately, in this together." ~ Dan Millman
The common meaning of gratitude is to be thankful for benefits received. While this is important, I feel that the energy of gratitude is one of the most powerful attracting forces in the universe. A heart filled with Thanksgiving, even when appearances tell us that we are mired in scarcity, conflict, and affliction, moves us to a higher frequency in consciousness " ... and we soon witness reality shining through the illusion". ~John Randolph Price
"Gratitude is not the result of things that happen to us: it is an attitude we cultivate by practice. The more we are thankful for, the more we will find to be thankful for." ~Alan Cohen
