“All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.” – Edwin Markham
When I think of gratitude, universal law, the law of attraction, the Golden Rule or reciprocity I am always drawn to images in my mind of the ocean. The rhythm of the ocean, the flow of the ocean, how the beach continues to give while the ocean takes and then returns back to the beach the same elements it was given, in addition to a little bit more from farther out and deeper within the ocean. If you think about it in that context, then universal law doesn’t seem so mystifying. The beauty of God’s teachings for us is that we can see the lesson all around us, if we take a moment to look. Next time, think about the ocean and how the sea works in conjunction with the moon and the beach on a continuous basis. As long as all three parties are giving, they are getting it back, and then some, in return.
God is real.

“When you’ve been blessed.. PASS IT ON, PASS IT ON!..” – Patti LaBelle
“If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.” – Zig Ziglar

“The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings” ~Henry Ward Beecher
We all need to take moments throughout each day to recognize what we are thankful for in that day and to embrace the feeling of gratitude.
