Spiritual Bargaining

Anytime I want something, whether it be spiritual and material, I often find myself praying to God, “give this to me and then I will show gratitude”, as if my gratitude is the currency by which I purchase my consumer item. Recently I have discovered that nothing helps my desires to manifest more perfectly and more swiftly then to pray for them with gratitude already in my heart for what I am about to receive. And nothing helps me to cultivate that gratitude more than to be grateful for the things that I already have, both great and small. To those with clear eyes and full hearts this universe is truly abundant.
