Each aspect of our life sends out various energies which, much like an arrow being released by a bow, work to propel us into our future endeavors. To name a few, we each have private and public energies, emotional energies from our past and present, the energy which is formed as a result of past actions, the energy of our future, and energy that manifests from our dreams, aspirations and the unknown. These energies work together to shape and create us, and as we foster our different energies, we move forward on our path. One energy in particular can influence the outcome of our future, the energy of gratitude.
When you look at people around you, you will witness those who are happy and content as well as those who are perpetual complainers, never satisfied. You could take two people with nearly identical means and lifestyle, yet find two polar opposite outlooks on the world. How is this so? Gratitude is the difference in their attitude; With Gratitude we learn to appreciate and find bliss in what is already present.
