PEACE OF MIND
If you were to ask your neighbor, "What would give you peace of mind?"
he might tell you, "A vacation in Bermuda !" or "An extra hundred grand would
give me peace!", or "A new Ferrari would make me content!"
But going places - and getting stuff - is usually a temporary solution.
Peace of mind rarely comes from getting more stuff. Getting more stuff
usually leads to wanting even more stuff! Peace of mind starts with
being grateful for what we have right now.
GRATITUDE is POWER
When we are thankful for what we have - for the friends and
family we have, and for the things we've got, we attract more
good people and good things! People who always complain
about what they DON'T HAVE, stay stuck. Complainers attract
more things to complain about!
It is a law of life. It's hard to explain, but you can observe it around you.
We get more of what we dwell upon.
That's why all the spiritual masters have taught the same lesson:
"Start by being thankful. Be happy with what you have now, and
more will come your way."
It's practical advice. Every time you say a silent "thank you",
you become more peaceful - and more powerful.
