To live in the active attitudes of love, praise and gratitude, creates a new platform — a reality — to live from.✶ We may seem to be in the same physical reality as the rest of the population, but we're not. The reality these three attitudes create around us, is not subject to the laws of a reality in which death rules all.
How does one manage to stay in a state of love, praise and gratitude?
The good news is that if you can even cultivate one of these attitudes as a permanent companion, it activates the other two attitudes. (Gratitude is often easier to train oneself to feel in physicality… praise being easier for some who function primarily from the heart.)
The further good news, is that if one removes whatever blocks those attitudes from activating, what remains is a state of love, praise or gratitude.
- Self-pity has been known by mystics as the root of all disempowerment. Self-pity blocks gratitude. (Gratitude manifests abundance — therefore self-pity creates impoverishment.)
- Self-importance blocks a state of praise. (Self-importance is the result of comparing oneself with others. Comparisons are caused by value judgements.)
- Love flees in the presence of fear. When fear is replaced by trust, love remains. Love is the most misunderstood of these three attitudes. In a spiritually advanced being, love takes the form of compassionate understanding. It does not mean to permit the unacceptable — that is not saintly, it's dysfunctional.
