We all know gratitude is a necessary virtue of healthy living, but how does it actually affect our lives? In this episode of “Ask Deepak” on The Chopra Well, Deepak discusses the important relationship between gratitude and abundance.
When you focus on the things that you are grateful for, it opens you to the source of all those things that came into your life. It also removes your ego, which is a nice way of getting touch with your spirit. You cannot have ego, identity and feel grateful at the same time. The highest level of gratitude is the gratitude for existence itself.
When you say thank you god for making me just as I am and that is enough for you, you reach the highest level of gratitude. It took approximately 14 billion years to create you and me. We are all made out of stardust. Recognizing the source of your identity, that you are a stardust luminous being that has become self aware, because the universe wanted to become self aware through your nervous system, is the highest form of gratitude. Not only being grateful for what you have but also for who you are.
