Just wanted to express my deepest and most sincere gratitude for what you are doing! The results of your help are indescribable. The focus of attention has changed. Limiting thoughts are disappearing each moment more and more. May each moment be embraced with the gentle presence of spiritual fulfillment. Life is so wonderful and I truly enjoy every day of success.
For too long, we’ve taken gratitude for granted.
Yes, “thank you” is an essential, everyday part of family dinners, trips to the store, business deals, and political negotiations. That might be why so many people have dismissed gratitude as simple, obvious, and unworthy of serious attention.
But that’s starting to change. Recently scientists have begun to chart a course of research aimed at understanding gratitude and the circumstances in which it flourishes or diminishes. They’re finding that people who practice gratitude consistently report a host of benefits:
- Stronger immune systems and lower blood pressure;
- Higher levels of positive emotions;
- More joy, optimism, and happiness;
- Acting with more generosity and compassion;
- Feeling less lonely and isolated;
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
