There was a bird who lived in the desert, very sick, no feathers, nothing to eat and drink, no shelter to live and kept on cursing his life day and night.
One day an Angel was crossing from that desert, bird stopped the Angel and inquired ” where are you going?” Angel replied ” I am going to meet God”.
So bird asked angel ‘ please ask God when my suffering will come to an end?’ Angel said ” sure, I will and bid a good bye to bird. Angel reached God’s place and shared the message of bird to Him.
Angel told Him how pathetic the condition of bird is and inquired when the suffering of the bird will going to end? God replied ‘ for the next seven life times the bird has to suffer like this, no happiness till then’.
Angel said when bird will hear this he will get disheartened could You suggest any solution for this.
God replied tell him to recite this mantra ‘ Thank you God for everything’. Angel met the bird again and delivered the message of God to the bird.
After seven days the Angel was passing again from the same path and saw that bird was so happy, feathers grew up on his body, a small plant grew up in the desert area, a small pond of water was also there, the bird was singing and dancing cheerfully. Angel was astonished how it happened, God told for seven life times there is no happiness for the bird for next seven life times, with this question in mind He went to visit God.
Angel asked his query then God replied yes it was true there was no happiness for the bird for seven life time but because the bird was reciting the mantra’ Thank you God for everything’ in every situation.
When bird fell down on the hot sand it said thank you God for everything, when it could not fly it said thank you God for everything, so whatever the situation may be the bird kept on repeating Thank you God for everything and therefore the seven life times karma got dissolved in seven days.

Gratitude is a quality of the soul. It does not depend on how much we possess. It’s opposite, ingratitude, is a quality of the external ego. When we abide in soul consciousness, we give thanks for whatever we have, no matter how little or how much. When in ego consciousness, we are never grateful or satisfied, no matter how much we have.
Practicing gratitude means recognizing the good that belongs to us already. But most of us tend to focus so heavily on the shortcomings and problems in our lives that we barely perceive the good that counterbalances them. This is so because we live in a world permeated by constant advertising and marketing that constantly reveals to us all the things we don’t have – and tells us how satisfied we would be with ourselves and our lives, if only we would buy their product. We should never forget to thank God for what we have already by His Grace.
Be grateful and see the change in your attitude. Be humble and you will never stumble. Attitude of Gratitude is the key to open the doors of Abundance.
