Question Gratitude

Hi

I started to write a daily gratitude list of the things that i am grateful for within my day, however, I realise today that things happens the way around.

I thought when we are grateful for the things, they will happen to increase and we will see more of them. But, today , I realise the opposite happens!

I was grateful for something and the opposite happens which I am not grateful for

Any idea why is this happening?

I have found gratefulness is a discipline and a practice.

It is easy to list things you agree with and be grateful.

The discipline is to find gratefulness in the things you disagree with.

So even if you find stuff agreeable or disagreeable you can always be grateful and thankful.

My starting base for gratefulness is:

Rock
Fire
Water
Green

I didn't think keeping a journal was for this. I thought it was to help to see what positive things we have in our life, to try and appreciate them. The so called simple things in life like a nice meal, going for a walk or the sun shining for example.

Your beliefs, thoughts and emotions generate thought-forms that materialize likewise situations, not your words, nor your intentions. You may say or write that you're grateful for something, but you might know it isn't so, or you might be afraid it isn't so, then ... that materializes.
