Book Excerpt:   

"Gratitude - A Way of Life"           
                              - by Louise Hay

                    Thanking the Universe

     "I have noticed that the Universe loves gratitude
The more grateful you are, the more goodies you
get.  When I say "goodies," I don't mean only material
things.  I mean all the people, places, and experiences 
that make life so wonderfully worth living.  

      "You know how great you feel when your life is
filled with love and joy and health and creativity.  

     This is how our lives are meant to be lived.  The 
Universe is a generous, abundant giver, and it likes to
be appreciated.

     Think about how you feel when you give a friend
a present. If the person looks at it and her face falls, 
or she says, "Oh, it's not my size, Or not my color, or I
never use anything like that, or is that all there is?" 
then I am sure you will have little desire to ever give
her a present again. 

      However, if her eyes dance with delight and she
is pleased and thankful, then every time you see some-
thing she would like, you want to give it to her, whether
you actually do so or not.

      Gratitude brings more to be grateful about.  It
increases your abundant life.  Lack of gratitude, or
complaining, brings little to rejoice about.  Complainers
always find that they have little good in their life, or
they do not enjoy what they do have.

     The Universe always gives us what we believe 
we deserve.

     For quite some time now, I've been accepting
every compliment and every present with:  "I accept 
with joy and pleasure and gratitude." 

     I have learned that the Universe loves this
expression, and I constantly get the most wonderful 
                                                           - Louise Hay


     Try substituting "you" for "I" in the affirmations
to bless others, to picture all-good for them,  and 
to see them in a new light.

     For those of you who do not get this e-zine in

     Have a happy day!  May the Lord grant you
all the desires of your heart!
