BE GRATEFUL says Sri Sri :-)

Be grateful in life – miracles are the end products of gratefulness.

When you wake up in the morning be thankful to all. Feel grateful for our very existence, our very body, and all that we have, and all the love we have received. And this gratefulness will bring a flood of prosperity, joy and happiness .That will bring a total change in your attitude towards life

Deep inside somewhere, you feel a fine vibration that touches. That is grace. And whenever grace flows, you will find gratitude.

Anything that comes to you not just by your effort and not because you qualify, you can consider it a gift; as grace.

When you demand there is no grace, but when you are grateful it comes in abundance.When there is gratitude, complaints vanish. Discontent is the lower journey; gratitude is the plateau, the middle. Rising above this is grace.

Grace amplifies the effect of good Karma & reduces the effect of bad Karma.Grace manifests inside as prayerfulness, longing. Outwardly grace flows to you as blessings. Grace is not earned through actions. It is a gift from the Divine. Years of different practices cannot bring you the joy that a moment of grace can bestow on you.

Grace flows from gratefulness. Gratefulness is the glow of one's life. A grateful person purifies his entire environment. In his presence all his family, friends, and the people around him are uplifted. Someone in anguish suddenly finds relief.

Knowing that ‘I have all the blessings, I have the grace, the best will happen to me’, you should move ahead.Life is worth living if even for a moment you have lived gratefully.

An intense desire can frustrate you or make you prayerful. In prayerfulness, there is gratitude & devotion.Prayer is not asking. It is gratitude; a recognition of the huge tidal waves of love that God is pouring on you every moment.

Be grateful for whatever God has offered you today. And you will see that He goes on offering plenty. Never a lack. But if you go on seeing the lack, then that continues. Your attention on lack allows lack to continue in life.

You cannot be grateful and feel the lack. The two cannot exist at the same time. When you feel grateful, you feel full. When you feel lack, grumbling begins from some corner. If you feel grateful, gratitude will increase in you and you will be given more. If you keep on grumbling, the negativity in you will increase.

Whatever is, that grows. If you sow a seed, that seed will grow. If the seed itself is lack, then lack is what grows. Today you feel a lack, and tomorrow you will feel some other lack, and then in a year, even if all these things are provided, still you will feel some lack. Observe carefully and see what you have been given. Then you become grateful.

In gratefulness, everything that supports life grows. When people grumble all through life, their minds don't focus properly. Naturally, they tend to lose out. Even on the material plane, when consciousness is flooded with lack, lack grows.

But if you feel you have plenty, plentifulness grows.

Jesus said, "For those who have not, what little they have will be taken from them. And to those who have, more will be given. And more. And more." This is the law of the nature. For those who do not have this knowledge, there is no way to get out of their grumbling. It becomes a habit.

If you are grateful, gratitude will increase in you and you will be given more.When we are grateful for whatever God has given us, then we never lack anything and the grace continues forever.

It is not necessary for you to touch my feet, or ask me to put my hand on your head. You know, you can sit anywhere and ask for blessings in your mind, and you will receive blessing.

Just by being in the thoughts of the Divine one receives blessings. This is how it happens. So whenever you feel grateful, know that blessings have definitely come along with it.

Grace and blessings come automatically.Knowing that

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
