Complaints, Criticism, passing the buck, shifting the blame onto others....Has this not become a way of life for many of us? We find one thousand things that are wrong with life and people and the way the world functions. Oh yes, we are very good at judging, evaluating, criticising and finding fault with everything, everyone and the system! Allow us a little rope, and we can actually lecture to God on what is wrong with His plan and His management of our world!
Indeed, we have become experts, past masters in the art of Complaining and criticising; champions in that familiar game of passing the buck. But, at the end of the Day, has this mastery, this special skill that we have honed and polished into a veritable art, brought us any joy or satisfaction? When we have successfully and loudly judged and accused everyone, are our problems anywhere near to being solved? Are we at peace and contented with our singular achievement?
The answer to that question must be a responding “No!”
So let’s change our old, bitter attitude; let’s change our thinking, and change our life for the better. And this change for the better is easily accomplished when we adopt a new attitude of gratitude!
Gratitude, according to Rev. Dada J.P. Vaswani, is “the foundation of a peaceful life, a secure and stable mind; it is also the essence of spirituality.” And Rev. Dada’s logic is, as always, simple and unbeatable: “ if you feel grateful for what you have, you will attract many more things to be grateful for. Gratitude is the very basis of the abundant law of attraction.”
Here is a beautiful book that is brought out to commemorate Thanksgiving Week, 2011. Stop complaining and start living! Cultivate the fine art of gratitude and fill your life with joy, abundance, peace and prosperity!
Thank you God! Thank you God! Thank you God! Thank you God!
Rev. Dada J.P. Vaswani tells us that this mantra is his favourite form of communication with the Lord. According to Dada, the words “Thank you!” have a magical quality about them. There is music, melody, sunshine and warmth in them. Utter these words to yourself; try and say them with a smile, for added effect—and you will find that you are filled with the energy of positive vibrations and the vitalising power of gratitude!
When we say “Thank You!” to our friends and colleagues and family members, let us not simply make it lip-service. When uttered with genuine feelings, these magical words and help us win friends, sustain and promote better relationships and take us on the path that changes mere living into the fine art of living with joy and grace!
How can we live and work in the beautiful spirit of grateful acceptance that makes our life an unending song of love and joy and peace? How can we learn to cherish our friends, sustain and win over the hearts and minds of our loved ones? How can we make the most of this precious life which is God’s greatest gift to us?
On the joyous occasion of Thanksgiving Week, 2011, we offer you Rev. Dada’s beautiful new book, with its central message ringing clear and fine in the title: Stop Complaining. Start Thanking!
Make this the motto of your life. And see your life transformed!
