Gratitude saves your buns
In India, gratitude is seen as one of the best ways to please Lakshmi, the beneficent multiarmed Goddess of Beauty and Prosperity. They say if you're thankful for what you already have, She can't help but give you more. Though many beg Her for favors, it's far more powerful to just thank Her for your current good, no matter how seemingly small.
Twenty years ago, I was in a temple near Mumbai, fervently praying at Her statue for what felt like hours. When I finished, a man walked up and said, "Excuse me, madam. If it would be all right, may I trouble you with a question, please? To whom do you think you were praying? Do you not know that She is exactly You Yourself?"
Whoa! His words jolted me. I laughed and admitted I'd indeed completely forgotten. I remembered that the inner divine is the highest, wisest part of ourselves. The Inner Lakshmi already is Abundance.
Enjoy your abundance!
