감사하는 삶 [gamsahanun salm] (sino-korean)
Most people are used to looking at things in terms of material rewards. Instead of feeling gratitude for the gifts of the universe that the Creator has endowed upon us, people often get impatient when something disrupts their plans. With their complaints, they offend not only the Heavenly Parent, but also all His magnificent gifts.
What can we be thankful for? First, for the opportunity given to us to be harmoniously included in the life of the Universe, and also for the fact that we have a natural urge to search for happiness. In general, the human desire for harmonious coexistence is an original desire, not of man, but of the Creator Himself.
We have parents on three levels: nature, our physical parents, and the Creator. In our position we should be grateful to all of them, and since everything we have does not belong to us, we should be ready at any time to part with it all, saying: “Nature, this is yours; parents, this is yours; Heavenly Father, everything belongs to You.”
There are many reasons to be thankful for. We are grateful to the Creator for the opportunity to be man and woman, husband and wife, for the blessing of having children. Through the energy of the universe, man and woman come to each other, and children turn their dreams into reality. When a man and woman merge in their ideal, children can give love that is unprecedentedly in both depth and breadth.
We can be grateful to serve as instruments of the creative power of the universe. If we are grateful for our position, the universe and all nature will gladly maintain a relationship with us.
As we live on earth in gratitude, we will go with love to the place where the Creator resides – the world of infinite love. If you learn to live a life of gratitude, the Universe will help you become a whole person of love.
