I have something important to share from this mountaintop; something that must be heard by the people of this world!

A disease, a sickness of the soul, has infected humanity and it’s causing people to be miserable. This disease is a lack of gratitude.  A false belief that somehow other people have it better than you, or that you must have something better or something more, in order to be happy; that something outside of you is going to come in and fix your life.

This disease doesn't discriminate between rich or poor, young or old.  It causes people to gaze into their own navels and wallow in self-pity, telling the universe that they don't appreciate what they’ve been given.  It leads them to believe that there is a scarcity of anything and everything that they could want and that they have to chase and grasp to get their share, which always seems to elude them.  It leads people to attract more lack, more desperation, and more ungratefulness.  This disease is nasty, insidious, and can destroy our world.

Rather than hinging your happiness on some future circumstance, how about thanking your creator for what you've already been given?  Instead of praying for everything you want but you don't yet have, how about thanking the Universe for what's on its way to you!  Instead of asking the Divine to serve you, let's ask how we may be of service to the Divine.

The true measure of a person's worth and righteous life, is the amount of love they have in their heart, which is demonstrated through gratitude.  If you have this disease of the soul - an inability to see that you could not be any more blessed - then I prescribe to you by the God-given love in my heart, you devote your immediate attention to healing your soul.

The world doesn't need any more dissatisfied complainers. We need people filled with love.
