Do you wonder what makes a human being powerful? Or how about How does a human being manifest their dreams and goals?
The answers to these questions can be found in the use of gratitude. Being THANKFUL puts you in harmony with the CREATOR of what you want, it builds faith, and keeps you from negative thought such as complaining, fault finding, or blaming just to name a few.
In the Science of Getting Rich, Wallace D. Wattles states, "You cannot exercise much power without gratitude; for it is gratitude that keeps you connected with Power."
For example, if GOD represents power than that would be like GOD is a power socket. Human beings would represent a plug and cord. Every time we are thankful we are plugged into the socket and have access to the power to manifest our desires. We are in harmony with the CREATOR of the Universe.
But when we are not thankful we are filled with negative thought such as complaining, fault finding, or blaming. This is when we are unplugged from the power socket. We are not in harmony with the CREATOR of the Universe. And it makes it not possible to have power.
So we must draw nigh unto GOD, and GOD will draw nigh unto you. Wattles says, "Gratitude will lead your mind out along the ways by which things come and it will keep you in close harmony with the CREATOR of the Universe. "
"And if your gratitude is strong and constant, the reaction in the Universe will be strong and continuous; the movement of the things you want will be always toward you.
Notice the grateful attitude that Jesus took; how he always seems to be saying "I thank thee, Father, that thought hearest me."
The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best; therefore it tends to become the best. Also, faith is born of gratitude. The grateful mind continually expects good things, and expectation becomes faith. The reaction of gratitude upon one's own mind produces faith; and every outgoing wave of grateful thanksgiving increases faith.
So you see being grateful connects you (plug and cord) to GOD (power socket) and allows you access to the power of the Universe.
And when you are plugged in you cannot have negative thought because that can only be when you are not plugged in.
Negative thought cannot be when you are thankful or plugged in. Once you start to be thankful continuously you will start to notice your SUPER POWER of getting what you want.
As Wattles states, "It is necessary, then, to cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously."
"The more gratefully we fix our minds on GOD when good things come to us (plugged in), the more good things we will receive, and the more rapidly they will come;and the reason simply is that the mental attitude of gratitude draws the mind into closer touch with the source from which the blessings come.
