Though I have worked as a language interpreter for George W.

Below, I want to share with you a brief summary of the most profound spiritual writing I have ever encountered. I deeply respect whatever spiritual path you may have chosen for yourself, only offering this profound, inspiring writing as a possible means of enriching your life.

If you are aware–or at least interested in having the awareness–of how perfectly the Divine supports your sovereign reality, there is a powerful and natural sense of gratitude that flows from you to the Divine. It is this wellspring of gratitude that opens the channel of support from the Divine to the individual and establishes a collaboration of purpose to transform the individual soul into a pure expression of divine essence. It is principally gratitude that opens you to connection and alignment with your divine essence.
When you project gratitude, regardless of circumstance or condition, life becomes increasingly supportive. This feeling of gratitude coupled with the mental concept of appreciation is expressed like an invisible message in all directions and at all times. Gratitude is an essential facet of love that opens you to redefine your purpose as a supportive extension of the Divine, rather than the whimsical outreach of fate or the exacting reaction of a mechanical, detached universe. Establishing a relationship with the universe through the outflow of gratitude also attracts life experience that is deeply transformative—experience that is richly devoted to uncovering life’s deepest meaning and most formative purpose.
When you are aligned with divine essence and live from this perspective as part of an ever-unfolding reality, you attract a natural state of harmony. This does not mean that your life is without problems or discomforts; rather it signifies a perception that there is an integral purpose in what life reveals. Natural harmony perceives that life experience is meaningful to the extent that you are aligned with your divine essence. When your personal reality flows in alignment with divine essence, you create lasting joy and inner peace.
