That was a wonderful piece to listen to, and more to the point to actually hear and take note of!

Reminds me of the saying, which went something like, you might not get all you want, but think of all the things you don't want, that you don't get... like a broken leg for instance!

I am grateful for the power of the lifeforce-the expression of God in all - entering my awareness more with each moment. Truly we are here to magnify God.

We can choose lack or abundance. the former leads to more lack and the latter leads to more abundance!

It is a beautiful day in the woods. The stream next to me is singing. The river moves silently, dreaming. The mists float gracefully, peacefully. I am filled with the joy, the gift of this day. I will carry these lovely gifts with me to share as I engage this day, as I encounter this day and weave myself into the tapestry of its mysteries.

Thank you for reminding me what i should be giving thanks too instead of complaining.

Gratitude ALWAYS works. The more I work on focusing on what I am blessed to have...the more what I am seeking shows up. It isn't as easy as it sounds. It is a PhD program in the school of life - but no other life skills are as tried and true as gratitude. Thank you Go Gratitude!!!

Love and gratitude...denise

Yes, it is our attention to the things we love and want that brings us more of the same. He is describing the law of attraction without saying so and gratitude and gratefulness to the things "we take for granted" or to "what is" will also bring more of the same. It's about shifting focus.

So true, we must pay attention to the things that ARE working for us each moment. It is important to acknowledge and be ever thankful for the persons whose very presence and personal contributions helps us in our daily lives as well, the janitor, the woman who held the door for you when you were carrying packages, the cashier, the pilot...
