Gratitude – A Chapter From The Science Of Getting Rich

“Convey an idea of your wants to the Formless Substance.

Relate yourself to Formless Intelligence in a harmonious way.
  • 1st believe that there is one Intelligent Substance from which all things proceed.

  • 2nd believe that this Substance gives you everything you desire

  • 3rd relate yourself to it by feeling of deep and profound gratitude.

…the nearer we live to the source of wealth, the more wealth we shall receive…

…the mental attitude of gratitude draws the mind closer in touch with the source from which the blessings come.

Gratitude…will keep you in close harmony with creative thought and prevent you from falling unto competitive thought.

The Law of Gratitude is the natural principle that action and reaction are always equal, and in opposite directions.

The grateful outreaching of your mind in thankful praise to the Supreme is a liberation or expenditure of force; it cannot fail to reach that to which it addressed, and the reaction is an instantaneous movement towards you.

If your gratitude is strong and constant; the reaction in Formless Substance will be strong and continuous.

…for it is gratitude that keeps you connected with Power.

Without gratitude you cannot long keep from dissatisfied thought regarding things as they are.

You fix attention upon the common, the ordinary, the poor, and the squalid and mean; and your mind takes the form of these things.

Then you will transmit these forms or mental images to the formless, and the common, the poor, the squalid and mean will come to you.

…to fix your attention on the best is to surround yourself with the best and become the best.

The Creative Power within us makes us into the image of that to which we give our attention.

We are Thinking Substance, and thinking Substance always takes the form of that which thinks.

The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best; therefore it tends to become the best; it takes the form or character of the best.

faith is born of gratitude.

The grateful mind continually expects good things, and expectation becomes faith.

It is necessary, then, to cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you; and to give thanks continuously.

And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude”



Above are notes I have summarised from The Science Of Getting Rich written by Wallace D Wattles.
