Kevin Smith recently talked in an interview with Joe Rogan that he’s “living on borrowed time.” This is because he had a heart attack and could have easily died but now is so grateful to be here for a little longer.
It’s screwed up that people only feel gratitude when things are awful.
The sooner you see this flaw in human psychology the better you can avoid it. But everyone that was captured by terriorists and let free feels so great. Perhaps you hear people talk about how great God is after the news of cancer spread but it seems to have stopped…for now.
People almost need to have these awful things happen to let their life change in a positive direction.
If you’ve already had that terrible event to make your life better, then you got off easy, because gratitude is very easy to have after that. If you haven’t had horrendous things happen, stop subconsciously looking for it to happen so you can give yourself permission to feel “blessed” when you survive that massive car accident.
You can feel gratitude today.
It’s a same concept as looking for a “sign.” You make up the meaning of everything that happens. Signs are just permission slips to feel a way that we want to feel in the form of your subconscious. But your subconscious also wants you narrowly miss a bridge collapsing to feel grateful about being alive – so be careful.
Giving gratitude everyday is magical not only because it changes your mindset positively, but because it is also programming your subconscious mind to not to manifest negative things as well.
What things is your subconscious mind seeking that you need to start to consciously avoid?
