Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What should I be grateful for?“
In the morning, we should be grateful for waking up, that there is light, air and an entire day ahead of us.
In the afternoon, we should be grateful for having been through half the day already, and that soon we will finish the day, go home to rest, and have dinner with our families.
Before going to sleep, we should be grateful for soon being able to once again get up, and that tomorrow will be a good day.
It might seem that being grateful all the time is like shutting our eyes to the evil and bad that abound in the world, but what do we get as a result of seeing evil and bad phenomena all the time? We do not need to invest in looking for negative aspects of life, as they appear involuntarily. However, we should invest in opening our eyes from such a state and seeing that there are people who try to see the good in everything. The more we invest in trying to see the positive aspects of life, then the more we will see positive phenomena actually enter our lives.
