The sooner you choose gratitude no matter what is going on, the sooner your suffering ends.
Even if the problem doesn’t end, your suffering can.
To some small degree I have tested this, and I can say that I DO feel better more quickly, and even my circumstances begin to turn for the better not too long after I fall on my knees and say, “Thank you for this challenge. I don’t understand why it’s good, but I know that it must be [because of the Law of Polarity].”
Let me share with you one of my favorite quotes, from one of my favorite books. It reads:
“If you wish to feel the most penetrating power of the Spirit, try the experiment of giving thanks in the moment of disappointment, of tragedy, of the specter of ruin. When you are able to do it consistently, you will feel as though you have discovered and united with the mystery of life.”
See why I love it so much?
It comes from one of my favorite books ever. I’ve said many times that it is the book I wished I’d written. It’s called “Light in the Wilderness” by M. Catherine Thomas. I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the principles on a deeper level from a spiritual perspective.
Anyway, that’s all for now. I invite you to give this principle a try this week.
