What's so important about gratitude? Well, simply put, gratitude is a powerful force for attracting and creating more of what you want in the world - and in your own life. Here's one place to begin, but don't miss reading the rest of the information on gratitude in our lives below.
If you look at the Creation Process, in everything that we do and create in our lives we Think -> Feel -> Act -> Experience. We have a thought about something. That thought creates a feeling in us, which magnifies or adds power to the thought. That feeling motivates us to Act on the Thought. Our actions create results - cause and effect. Those results become our Experience. As much as this might appear to be a linear process, it is actually a cycle. Because our Experience forms our beliefs, or our paradigms, which then influence the way we Think about and interpret our future Experience.
Gratitude is a critical part of this process because it focuses your Thoughts on what you want to create rather than what you don't want to create. So many of us are focused on negativity, pain, suffering, and conflict in our lives when what we really want is to be positive, happy, joyful, accepted and loved. By focusing your Thoughts on what you're grateful for in your life, and feeling the feeling of Gratitude, you add power to that, and you attract more of it to you. You Act in a more positive way, and your positive actions create positive results. People respond to you in a more positive way.
When I am grateful to those who serve for me, I am affirming that I am Free, and I am Safe, and I have literally millions of people who care enough about me and my Freedom to dedicate themselves to serving to protect and defend it. I am telling the world and the universe that I like and value Freedom, and Safety, and Service to others. And in doing so, I am giving more energy and power to those things, and not to the culture of Fear and Isolation that has created so much conflict in our world.
Just imagine, if you will, what your life would look like if you had more Freedom and Love, and less Isolation and Fear. How would that look on a personal level? On a local level? On a national level? On a global level? It all starts with being grateful for what we already have.
