More on Gratitude

I posted these these quotes this morning on the subject of gratitude:

"Gratitude is like a muscle.
The more we do with it
the stronger it gets."
~ Jon Gordon

They are two words
that have the power to transform."
~ Jon Gordon

"If the only prayer you ever say is thank you,
it will be enough."
~ Meister Eckhart

And these entries come from Paramahansa Yogananda's Spiritual Diary for the last few days:

"Thanksgiving and praise open in your consciousness the way for spiritual growth and supply to come to you. Spirit pushes Itself out into visible manifestation as soon as a channel is opened through which it can flow. You should be thankful for everything at all times. Realize that all power to think, and speak, and act comes from God, and that He is with you now, guiding and inspiring you."

"When the summer of good fortune warms my tree of life, it easily burgeons with fragrant blossoms of thankfulness. During winter months of misfortune, O Lord, may my denuded branches changelessly waft towards Thee a secret scent of gratitude."

"Every day should be a day of thanksgiving for the gift of life: sunshine, water, and the luscious fruits and greens that are indirect gifts of the Great Giver..."

And finally, from myself:

"Be grateful.
Dwell less and less
on what you want,
and more and more
on what you have."
