Imagine if you were the only person on earth; you would have no desire to do anything. What would be the point in creating a painting if no one could see it?
What would be the point in creating a painting if no one could see it? What would be the point in composing music if no one could hear it? What would be the point of inventing anything if no one can use it? There would be no pleasure or joy in your life.
It's your contact and experiences with other people that give your life joy, meaning, and purpose. Because of that, your relationships affect your life more than anything else. To receive the life of your dreams, its vital that you understand how your relationships affect your life now, and how they are the most powerful channels for gratitude to start magically changing your life.
Science is now confirming the wisdom of the great sages of the past, with research studies showing that people who practice gratitude have closer relationships, are more connected to family and friends, and have the most astounding statistics that have come out of research studies is that for every one complaint about another person, whether in thought or word, there have to be ten blessings for the relationship to flourish. Any less than ten blessings for every one complaint and the relationship will deteriorate, and, if the relationship is a marriage, it will most likely end in divorce.
Gratitude makes relationships flourish. As you increase your gratitude for any relationship, you will magically receive an abundance of happiness and good things in that relationship. And gratitude for your relationships doesn’t change only your relationships; it also changes you. No matter what your temperament is now, gratitude will give you more patience, understanding, compassion, and kindness to the point where you won't even recognize yourself. The little irritations you once felt and the complaints you had in your relationships will disappear because when you’re truly grateful for another person, there’s nothing you want to change about that person.
“we can only be sad to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures” – Thornton Wilder
Words are very powerful, so when you complain about any person you actually harm your life. It is your life that will suffer. By the law of attraction whatever you think or say about another person, you bring to you. This is the very reason why the greatest minds and teachers of the world have told us to be grateful. They knew that for you to receive more in your life, for your life to increase magically, you have to be grateful to others just as they are. What if every person close to you said, “I love you- just the way you are,” how would you feel?
So just be grateful for your relationships and people and see how life changes beautifully.
