Through the practice of these exercises, which are fully compatible with our contemporary life, you will notice that you receive a force of balance and harmony that allows you to be more balanced and be yourself in life. The gratitude technique allows one to develop a greater sensitivity towards the higher world. It is not an unhealthy sentimentality, but an awakening that comes from greater clarity, more strength, more goodness. Our life is our life. It is we who have to live it, nobody else. But it is obvious that to live life in a harmonious way, we need strength and lucidity. The gratitude technique allows us to obtain this, and even more.
One generally feels fear of sensitivity, because he thinks that the more sensitive a person is, the more unhappy and sick he will be. Of course, if gratitude is not expressed in the right way, it can make you sick, because the energies are not directed towards the spirit of heaven, but remain unconscious and too personal. Who thinks that he or she is the center of the world, when he thanks only expresses an educated and conventional dead phrase, to hide the true being that she is, by pure appearance.
True gratitude opens the perception of beauty, wisdom, greatness and love. If a human being no longer perceives the reality of the omnipresent higher world, he is lost. It is only a matter of time before the fall is inevitable. Only the correct cultivation of greater sensitivity can lead humanity towards a true evolution of light and harmony, and allow it to overcome all trials and temptations.
A source of well-being and of great benefit to life is to offer oneself moments of solitude in which harmony and original goodness can be cultivated calmly and quietly, and when the magical phrase of great gratitude can be pronounced. Then we can share this with others through simple acts, friendly words, warm smiles full of light that come from a world where the human reigns.
