Without Gratitude There is no Happiness 

     Last week I wrote about your pendulum of life, and how our lives are always changing and will always move through good and challenging times. Our  job is to pull ourselves up over the negative swing, knowing that something better will come along soon. The good we desire must come back to us because change is always happening, and everything has an opposite; good – bad, happy – sad etc.  This is a universal law, the law of duality. If you experience challenges in your life, be confident that it won’t last forever, life has to give you the opposite as well.    

     You can create a positive outcome faster by always seeing the positive side of all experiences. The more positive vibes you can create, the longer the pendulum of life will stay on the good swing. Yes, it can be hard to accomplish total control of our negative emotions. But it can be done, and it gets easier the longer you practice. 

     There is one simple trick that you can use to help bring your pendulum of life back from the negative side of the swing. You can speed up the downswing so that the good begins happening faster. How can I do that you ask? By being grateful, and showing gratitude to others. You can not be negative, and grateful at the same time, it simply cannot be done. Part of being happy and successful in this life is being thankful. Being grateful for everything you have, and everything you want to have, with NO strings attached. 

     A great way to wake up and start your day with gratitude is to; tell your body and mind “THANK YOU.” While you slept last night, your mind kept you breathing. Your mind kept your heart beating and blood flowing. Your liver transferred out toxins that you picked up during the day. Your kidneys processed waste. Your stomach turned food into energy, your mind was allowed to wander and be free. Your body made sure you would wake up healthier than when you went to sleep. You are a NEW YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY. No matter what happened in your life yesterday, while you were sleeping, your mind subconsciously created a new you. You need to stop for a second and do a happy dance!! That is some awesome news, and something to be grateful for every day! 

     I am not a doctor, I don’t know everything the body does in a scientific way. I just know some basic common sense stuff. I know that all of those amazing things and many more took place while you slept. While you were asleep, your subconscious mind was still working for you. Your mind and body made you a better person overnight. You did absolutely nothing but fall asleep. If for no other reason, you have to be thankful for that amazing blessing from the universe. You get a better life, a better body and all that is asked in return from you, is that you are grateful, and of course, sleep once a day. That is really cool. 

     That is a great reason to be happy! You are in total control. When you are thankful and grateful for what you have, the universe responds with more of what you’re thankful for. It’s so simple. 

     For instance, if you are grateful for being able to pay your bills, you will be able to pay your bills. Not just pay them, but you will have a little money left over. When you begin to be thankful for the money left over after paying the bills, even if it is only fifty cents, your prosperity will also increase. You need to be truly emotionally grateful then watch what happens.That simple shift from being grateful for having enough, to being grateful for having MORE than enough, will begin to change your life to a life of abundance and of dreams coming true. 

     All you have to do is become emotionally grateful for the abundance you already have. You will begin to see the abundance of food in your refrigerator you didn’t see before. You will see the abundance of clothing you already have, and you will see that you always have money left over. All you have to do is be grateful for the abundance you already have. 

     You can either become a glass half full person (Happy) or a glass half empty person (negative). The choice is all yours. You can choose to see that left over fifty cents as an abundant windfall, because you have money left over after all of your bills are paid. You can choose to gratefully celebrate your good fortune! Or, you can be ungrateful and disappointed that you only have fifty cents. It is your choice how you want to live. You have the ability to change how you see your life. 

     You need to decide if you want to be happy and grateful, or sad and disappointed. The key really is so simple. 

Show gratitude for everything you have today, and for everything you want to receive tomorrow.

How to Master Change

You are in Charge of Change. 

     Why is it that sometimes in life when everything is going perfect, you come to a screeching halt, and suddenly your life spirals out of control? Life has a way of throwing curveballs at you when you are swinging away. I do not know of a single person, successful or not, that hasn’t had misfortune in their lives. The most successful people accept the setback and then plan a comeback. While everyone else sits on the sidelines complaining and wishing. Complaints and wishes will not make you happy. There is really no benefit to being in a negative frame of mind. 

     Life will always have its ups and downs, and that’s what this post is about. Your life is like the ocean’s tide. Always changing, always coming in and then going out. Or like the moon, one day its full and bright a few days later its pitch black. You have no control over change and you cannot hide from it either. Change will find you wherever you go. It is inevitable and the only solution is to face it head on. 

     Knowing that you can’t hide from change, the only solution left for us is to embrace it. Face it head on with fearless determination. Accepting that you will never simply remain the same you can learn to make change work for you. 

     You might be saying that you can’t always control changes that are forced on you. You are absolutely right. However, you can control everything you feel, and how you react to the change. In the next paragraphs I hope to explain how you can rise above negative changes in your life. Giving you the opportunity to create happiness with every shift the universe gives you. 

     There are seven laws that dictate how our universe works. These laws govern everything in the universe. The first three of the laws are immutable, meaning they can not be changed or adjusted in any way. The other four laws are mutable, meaning that they can be adjusted, or transcended to improve your life. You can make these four laws work for you, not against you. We will cover two of the seven laws in this article, the fourth and fifth. The fifth law is:

     The Law of Rhythm (Mutable): 

The fifth of the seven Universal Laws tells us that “Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.” ( 

     It is the second of the mutable, or transcendable universal laws, and means that your life pendulum swings in everything. This principle can be seen in operation in the waves of the ocean, in the rise and fall of the greatest empires, in business cycles, in the swaying of your thoughts from being positive to negative and in your personal successes and failures. When your pendulum reaches the far end point, then the backward swing begins almost unnoticeably, until such time that any forward movement has been totally reversed, then the forward movement begins again and the process is repeated. 

     Being a “mutable law” means that you can control aspects of the rule. You can make it work for you, not against you. You can rise above the swing, while waiting for the forward motion to return. 

The Law of Polarity (Mutable ) 

    The fourth law states that everything has an opposite. Happy – sad, good – bad, hot – cold, etc. The Law of Rhythm states that everything has its tides. Everything is constantly flowing in and out of change. You have probably heard the saying “What comes around goes around.” Well it does, it has to, it is a law of the universe. 

     Imagine a pendulum swinging back and forth. This is your life swinging from one event to the next. To illustrate how this works I want you to imagine a pendulum swinging. On one side of the pendulum arc label good, and on the other side label bad. Now your life pendulum is swinging from good to bad, and then back to good again. This is how your life has been designed by the Creator, the Source, the Universe, God, or whatever you want to call our maker. Change is programmed into the universe. It is a law of nature and it never stops.

     Once again on the one end of the swinging motion is what we’ll call good. For instance walking on the beach is good. On the other end of the arc is bad, let’s say that kicking a rock, “ouch” is bad. Now draw a straight line under the route that the pendulum is swinging over. Label one side good, the other side bad (remember everything has an opposite. It’s a law of the universe.) On the line you just drew, draw an intersecting line at the point where good turns to bad. 

     Now I want you to think of the one thing that is at the intersecting line that makes it change from good to bad. For example: You are walking on the beach (good) suddenly you kick a rock (bad), OUCH! (this is where the good changes to bad) the pendulum continues to swing to the bad side, where you fall down and get sand in your eyes. You are now at the farthest bad side of the line, or opposite side of the pendulum swinging motion.    

     Suddenly and without warning, the pendulum begins to slowly swing back to the good side (it’s a law, life must swing back). As the pendulum of your life begins to swing back to good, a breeze blows and the sand is blown out of your eyes. Now because you can see again, and because you fell down after kicking the rock and having excruciating pain, you just happened to find an old Spanish gold coin worth a thousand dollars. Your pendulum just swung from good to great. 

     We are constantly going from what we perceive as good, to what we perceive as bad, and then from bad to good. Your pendulum of life is always swinging back and forth, it never stops moving, change is always present.   

     The simple key for your consistent happiness is to keep your pendulum swinging from good to better, and better to best. You must find the good in every situation!

     You must see change as a good thing. No matter what, find the good in everything that happens to you. You will begin to see your life change for the better. You will notice that the changes are for the best. The universe wants you to succeed, and when you have shifted your thoughts to finding the good in a situation, you will be able to maintain positive momentum during the challenging times. 

     Your life is a pendulum, always swinging from one event to another. How you perceive those events is up to you. You are what you think you are! If you can shift your thoughts to only see good in a situation, your life pendulum will swing from good to better. When you learn to only see the good in every situation, your pendulum will not swing to what is perceived as bad because you have conditioned your mind to find good or learn from your experiences. 

Eventually, your life will swing from better to best. The perceived “bad” will now be seen as an opportunity for good. 

     When you begin to control your pendulum of life. You will be able to wait for your pendulum to swing back to something better because you know that the universal law of rhythm says it will. Everything always works out. You can not lose. You can only win because you are in charge of your thoughts You control how you think and feel. 

     You must have some patience. Remember, you are part of nature, and nature takes its time. Nature learns and grows as it lives. We need to do the same thing. Every experience should be looked at as either a positive experience, or a learning experience. If you are going through a tough time today, you must be positively waiting and looking for the perceived bad to turn around and become good again. You must learn from whatever is setting you back. You must look for the good always. The better you can do this, the better your life will be. 

     You don’t need a million dollars to be happy. You only need positive, grateful thoughts and the rest will happen magically. Your life will always improve after a perceived negative event. You have the power to control your thoughts (to be only positive and grateful). You are the only person in this world who can control your emotions.
