Gratitude: The Second Secret to Divine Awakening

We have already talked about the first secret to Divine Awakening:

Forgiveness: The Most Overlooked Secret

 

Now as you progress to the next step, you may find that the world begins to look different.

 

Colours are brighter.

Sounds are sweeter.

There is beauty, love and kindness everywhere.

 

Truth is, the world is the same as it was yesterday.

It is only your perspective that has shifted.

 

You have shifted.

You have shifted from Seeking to Seeing.

 

And in this shift, the world is bathed anew.

Anew with possibilities.

Anew with opportunities.

Anew with Life.

 

A deep and profound sense of gratitude fills your entire Being.

As you gaze within and around, you suddenly realise there is so much to be grateful for.

 

Every moment is one of beauty and wonder.

Every moment is one of profound gratitude.

 

Gratitude for All That Is.

Gratitude for All That Isn’t.

 

Wondering what that last statement means?

 

As you shift from Seeking to Seeing, as you shift from surrender to gratitude, you have begun to realise the lessons Life has to teach you.

 

You have learnt what pain is.

You have learnt what despair is.

You have learnt what doubt is.

 

Each Life lesson has been vital for you to experience All That Is and All That Isn’t.

 

Consider for a moment:

If you had not experienced pain, you would not know pleasure.

If you had not experienced indifference, you would not know empathy.

If you had not experienced coldness, you would not know compassion.

 

If you had not experienced sorrow, you would not know joy.

If you had not experienced despair, you would not know hope.

If you had not experienced doubt, you would not know faith.

 

If you had not experienced hatred, you would not know love.

If you had not experienced lies, you would not know truth.

If you had not experienced loss, you would not know how precious Life is.

 

Thank every person and every situation that has taught you these lessons.

 

The experiences you have had thus far in this lifetime, you chose them.

 

You chose them through your thoughts.

 

You chose them through your words.

 

You chose them through your deeds.

 

You chose them for the lessons they taught you.

 

Yes, each and every one of them has taught you something.

 

Now, with this shift from Seeking to Seeing, with this change in perspective, with profound gratitude, you see yourself differently.

You see others differently.

You see situations differently.

 

You see the Truth.

The Truth of this moment.

This Present.

For this is All There Is.

This Moment.

Now.
