“I have discovered that gratitude is a way of being. When we become cognizant that everything in this life is a gift from the Universe, and what we make of this thing called ‘life’ is our gift back to the Universe, our awareness is deepened. Gratitude is a tangible substance emanating from the person feeling this emotion. This substance permeates environments, clothing and objects.
Gratitude as a “way of being” begins to manifest itself as the art and science of blessing. It makes sense when we realize that all life operates on a vibrational frequency of energy. The energy that we bring to life is the same energy that returns to us. This gets tricky when we don’t receive the results in life we want. However, each experience redeems itself through our willingness to get its message and accept the gift it offers in its wake. This creates the space for miracles.”
Sharon Stroud, in an essay entitled “Gratitude As a Way of Being” in “Gratitude, A Way of Life” by Louise Hay and Friends
