We receive so much from a simple inner movement of gratitude for the life we have been given. This movement of gratitude goes far beyond a mere feeling.

The moment we intend to give thanks, this feeling of gratitude starts to act, it does not remain passive. According to the law of affinity, its vibrations attract impressions, feelings and inspirations of the same nature.

We then receive all the blessings thanks to this one small movement: we thought to give thanks.
Someone might say, ‘But I am unhappy, sick and poor, so I cannot thank.’ Of course they can, for even if they are unhappy, if they think hard, they will find at least one reason to be grateful. Everyone must be grateful for what they have and for what they don’t have, for what brings them joy and for what brings them sorrow.

This is how they will keep the flame the life alive in them.
