Sometimes the most incredible things are right before our eyes. The lure of life’s distractions can so easily draw us away from the simplistic beauty integrated into our surroundings. It is, reality that is, so much larger than our illusions, so much greater than what we choose to see. It contains a Spirit that encompasses soul and has existed since the beginning; far from the existence of our own. Standing alone and frozen in time the single witness of one thousand lines. Why is it that we are so easily blinded by the majesty of it all? Why is it that we treat it as if it is so small?
Everything good that is to come really does start with recognizing what is good in our lives right now. Gratitude and appreciation for all that we have and hold is the secret to having more to be thankful for. As we look at ourselves and those that we love we must clearly recognize the blessing they are, see the good in them and be satisfied with the special individual whom they are.
It is far too easy to look at the people in our lives and pick out all the things we don’t like about them. Perhaps they don’t show us love the way we want to experience it? Maybe they do some things that agitate us and cause us to pull away? The truth is that we are who we are. That counts for all of us. Chances are that the one who is best for us is here for us as they are intended to be and as they are created to be. It just may be that they were intentionally put into our lives to share our experience for a greater purpose. When we find that our partner is extremely organized and scheduled to the point of obsession and that we are the opposite in all ways; we must consider that maybe, just maybe, we were brought together to achieve a balance in our being. Whatever the case I guarantee there exist a far greater purpose in all that we have right now.
Remember, we are created to create and creation comes forth via our experiences. If all things in our relationships, careers and in all the other areas of our lives were the same constantly there would be to contrast. Without contrast there would be no experience. Absent of experience there would be no wanting. Wanting is a critical part of creation.
When we see in our minds what it is that we want a rift in the sea of energy in which we exist is created. That thought creates the beginning of what will be. As we recognize and appreciate all that we have with the utmost gratitude we become better able to concentrate on and build momentum towards the things that we will create.
By putting our creative energy into what we don’t want we constantly create more of the same. It is our job to focus on the good in all we have in order to create the ideal vibration or frequency capable of manipulating this infinitely powerful sea of energy in order to accommodate the creation of our ideas, dreams and aspirations.
As we adopt an attitude of gratitude we will propel ourselves infinitely into higher altitudes.
This power, the magic of gratitude, is expounded upon in most spiritual writings. Gratitude is the rock which we must firmly place our foot upon in order to push off of and to propel ourselves into our dreams. The pinnacle of this power is achieved when we acknowledge all that we have with the greatest of appreciation and relish in the emotions associated with being thankful for all that we have right now.
(Colossians 3:16 New International Version) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
In faith always,
