Thanking heaven

The most effective way of overcoming difficulties

March 30th 2015
The only thing that can save us in times of trouble is a feeling of gratitude towards heaven. But how do you persuade humans of this, when they don’t even give thanks for the times of happiness that come their way! And yet, learning to thank heaven, even for difficulties and misfortunes, is the best way of transforming them. If you start shouting and rebelling when you have difficulties, you will feel them weigh even more heavily on you. But if you say, ‘Lord, thank you. There must be a reason why this is happening to me. I still have a lot to learn and understand, and these events will help me to improve further and become stronger’, you will suddenly begin to feel brighter inside. It is as if you had wrapped your difficulties in a film of pure gold and are seeing them in a different light.
