What do you want?
I want gratitude.
Meditate on your tearful heart.
Meditate on your soulful eyes.
Only one quality can solve all your problems – everybody’s problems – and that quality is gratitude. Constantly offer your heart of gratitude. Every day count the petals of your gratitude-heart and open another petal. If you want to name the petals, they are simplicity, sincerity, purity, humility and so on. Gratitude embodies all the divine qualities. That is the only quality that will help everyone solve his problems and also run the fastest.
If you have a gratitude-heart, you will be able to receive the utmost. It is a gratitude-heart that can receive from above peace, light and bliss in boundless measure and also manifest them here on earth.
Is to discover on earth
A Heaven-delivered rose.
Gratitude is the creative force, the mother and father of love. It is in gratitude that real love exists. Love expands only when gratitude is there. Limited love does not offer gratitude. Limited love is immediately bound by something – by constant desires or constant demands. But when it is unlimited love, constant love, then gratitude comes to the fore. This love becomes all gratitude.
If it is true love,
The love that expands,
Then its source is gratitude.
Gratitude comes from sweetness. A child may not say “thank you” to his mother, but the sweetness of his entire being is expressed through his eyes in the form of a smile. He does not know the word ‘gratitude’, but when the mother sees his sweet smile, she knows that the child is full of gratitude. So the more we can create sweetness in our hearts and in our being, the easier it becomes to offer gratitude.
One way to feel sweetness is to look at a most beautiful, fragrant flower. When we look at the flower and smell its fragrance, consciously or unconsciously we become one with its beauty and fragrance. At that time, its sweetness enters into us or our own sweetness comes forward; sometimes both happen simultaneously. When sweetness comes to the fore in our nature, it becomes very easy to offer gratitude.

How to express your gratitude?
It is quite easy.
Just smile your soulful smile.
Your soulful smile
In its purest fragrance.
The most important and most significant good quality in our human life is gratitude. Unfortunately, that good quality we somehow manage not to express either in our thoughts or in our actions. Right from the beginning of our life, we have somehow learned not to express it. So we have the least amount of the very thing that we need most in order to become a better person.
The things that most deserve our gratitude we just take for granted. Without air we cannot live for more than a minute or two. Every day we are breathing in and breathing out, but do we ever feel grateful to the air? If we do not drink water, we cannot survive. Even our body is composed to a large extent of water. But do we give any value to water? Every morning when we open our eyes, we see the sun blessingfully offering us light and life-energy, which we badly need. But are we grateful to the sun?
My own gratitude-heart
Is all that matters.
Please try to feel that gratitude abides inside your heart. Then ask yourself how often you are fully identified with your heart. The immediate answer will be, “One minute a day.” The rest of the time, you are identified with the mind or the body or the vital. But if you can feel that you are the heart, not just for a fleeting second or a fleeting minute, but twenty-four hours a day, if you can feel the presence of your heart as your own existence, then easily you will have gratitude, since gratitude lives inside the heart.
If you have the capacity to feel that you are the heart, try to feel that your heart is constantly becoming large, larger, largest. It is like a father whose salary is constantly increasing. He used to get fifty dollars a week, now he is getting one hundred dollars, and soon he will be getting two hundred dollars. In the same way, the capacity of your heart is constantly increasing.
The child of the heart is gratitude. When the father becomes richer, the child also automatically becomes richer, because he knows that his father’s property belongs to him as well. If his father becomes a multimillionaire, then in time his father’s wealth goes to him. So when the heart is all the time expanding, when its capacity is all the time increasing, gratitude is also growing and increasing its capacity.
My heart’s gratitude
My life’s plenitude.
