Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.


“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend”.

~ Melody Beattie

Less is More!


“There is more to this thing called gratitude than we care to understand. Gratitude exemplifies itself in the law of less.
The moment you realise that you are not a drop in the ocean, but the entire ocean in a drop, that is the moment you are born! You walk in the consciousness that you are not in this world to grab, albeit with haste, you know that all things you will ever need already surround you in glorious abundance, that now your mission consists more in giving out than in blind acquisition.

Then have you fulfilled the law:
Less is more!

You have touched many lives in a thousand different ways. You have lived a life pleasing to the Creator. Your gratitude has been genuine.”

Seek the Threads of Light surrounding you and go with the flow!

Spirit Lights The Way

The best way to create the life of our dreams it to grow in the direction of happiness:

1.  Live each day to the fullest.  Life is precious. It’s a mystical, magical adventure filled with fabulous gifts and exciting prizes.  Enjoy all it has to offer. 

Live each day as if it were going to be your last ~ one day, it will be.

2.  Make room for what matters.  As we follow our unique likes and dislikes (i.e., clues to our essence) like breadcrumbs, we move ever closer to living the life of our dreams. 

The happier we are, the closer we are to being who we were always intended to be.

3.  Don’t hang on to the bad stuff.  Let past hurts  go.  They are merely images in your mind.  Free up your energy to enjoy life.  Turn your back on the past and return your attention to the present ~ right here, right now.

“God has worked a long time and very patiently to bring us up to where we are in industry and government, and He is going right on with His work. There is not the least doubt that He will do away with plutocrats, trust magnates, captains of industry, and politicians as soon as they can be spared; but in the meantime, behold they are all very good. Remember that they are all helping to arrange the lines of transmission along which your riches will come to you, and be grateful to them all. This will bring you into harmonious relations with the good in everything, and the good in everything will move toward you.”

“Would you know who is the greatest saint in the world: It is not he who prays most or fasts most, it is not he who gives most alms or is most eminent for temperance, chastity or justice; but it is he who is always thankful to God, who wills everything that God wills, who receives everything as an instance of God’s goodness and has a heart always ready to praise God for it.”

William Law

“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him.
Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.”
― Thomas Merton
