Getting to the Heart of the Lesson

 

Gratitude opens the heart and allows love to flow through our lives.

 

When we are not grateful to the giver of our blessings, we develop insensitivity and an attitude of entitlement. This shuts us out of the divine flow and keeps us distant from grace. In contrast, expressing gratitude opens our hearts and invites more blessings into our lives. Cultivating an attitude of thanksgiving for all we receive is the surest way to awaken awareness to God’s presence in every moment.

 

Affirmation 33 - I give thanks to every giver and to the One Source of all that is.
Affirmation: I give thanks to every giver and to the One Source of all that is.
