Be grateful

Imagine this, you somehow find yourself stuck in an island, by yourself, on your own. In the midst of all the stress and chaos in your mind on what you should do, hunger takes a toll on you. You ought to survive and so you see a coconut tree.

You do not know how to climb a tree, and so after countless struggle and immense pressure, you finally get to the top and get yourself coconuts. Once reaching down, you realize you do not have a knife, to peel and to cut the coconut. A simple thing, a knife, you do not have one. And so you look around, search for hours, for an object you could make sharper and turn it into a knife.

After more hours of searching and eventually sharpening, you find and make one and you are then able to peel, cut the coconut so you could get its precious drink.

Today, right here right now, a knife is a few seconds away from you if not minutes. Yet we use it every day in our lives like it is merely a thing to be cherished, well, maybe it sounds funny to think of it as so, but if you learn how to appreciate these little things in life, you may just realize how precious your life is already, be gratified and find happiness.

And It is being grateful or in a state of gratitude that ‘informs’ the universe that you know what you desire already exists but beyond and above that, you are very much grateful for what you have first and so it puts you in the right frequency to get your humble self into receiving more.
