“You are made in the image of what you desire.” – Thomas Merton
A single gust of wind won’t alter the shape of a tree. Yet when you see a patch of the trees all leaning to the west, the lasting effects of the prevailing winds are undeniable. That is the power of intention.
Although a single intention may seem fleeting, when repeatedly acted on, it becomes a powerful, life-shaping force.
The new science of positivity tells us that when you make gratitude your desire, whole aspects of your life can be changed. You become enduringly different: more content, open-hearted and appreciative.
So powerful is the practice of gratitude that others will be lifted by being in your presence, helping them become different and better as well. Gratitude is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
