“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” - William Arthur Ward

A grateful, expressive attitude creates positive energy that attracts abundance and wealth regardless of what has happened in the past.

If you want to be, do, or have more of everything, the key to the lock is gratitude. Surround yourself with more people that have this key.

Gratitude opens the funnel of life and unleashes the creative process in each one of us. 

For some, it has been dormant for many years.

We fail to appreciate all the gifts that have been given to us unconditionally.

Essentially, we take them for granted. When this happens many of the present moment gifts go by the boards unnoticed.

However, gifts of gratitude are all around us.

From time to time, we might have uneventful days that are filled with the what if questions.

Suddenly as if from left field someone pops up with a lung machine or other handicap that causes us to wake up and appreciate what we already have in our lives.

The physical eye always triggers perception.

However perception without acute awareness and based solely on conjecture is not sound.

Conversely, the God Power of Gratitude consciousness allows us to receive even more blessings in our lives.

These blessings do appear in the form of disappointments, failures or unfortunate events.

They are in disguise.

Utilizing this spirit of gratitude will create the true blessings without the disguise as the inner eye of understanding supersedes our physical eyes.

It is this God Power of Gratitude consciousness that allows us to receive even more blessings in our lives

A glass filled with dirt and water will remain intact until more clean water is poured into the glass and ultimately the water becomes clearer and clearer.

Gratitude works in the same way.

A more grateful attitude increases the flow of more blessings and the funnel becomes open and flowing with abundance and wealth.

The trick is to live in a spirit of expectation and gratitude most of our 86,400 seconds of each glorious day.

I wrote the song Gratitude in 2018 and the music is a reflection of the words above.

Enjoy, as the best is yet to come.


Think gratitude.

Feel gratitude.

Live gratitude.

Albert Einstein’s quote is a perfect ending to this blog today, “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.”
