“When we “depreciate” something, we devalue or diminish its worth. We depreciate things or people by expressing disapproval or dislike. When we appreciate something or someone, we give value with approval and praise. When we appreciate things, we mean to increase their worth.
It is impossible to feel grateful for something or someone we do not value. Begin to see things and people as they truly are rather than your assessment of them, which is an inner judgment. Each person is a child of God. See the unfolding of God in each person you meet. Then you are able to appreciate them. When you fail to do this, you depreciate them.
Your experience of misery, emptiness and fear is related to your depreciation of what shows up in your life. Think of everything that you criticize regularly and you will see where you have failed to appreciate. If you find fault with blacks or whites, Muslims or Jews, Iraqis or Americans, the young or the old, what you are doing is devaluing groups of people. The moment you participate in the depreciation process, you block your ability to experience gratitude and, consequently, you obstruct your ability to manifest prosperity, love and joy.”
Wayne W. Dyer, in “Manifest Your Destiny”
