Hence one has to be grateful for everything and that gratefulness is all that religion is. Once you understand that your life is a gift, a grace, you start feeling grateful.

Ordinarily people feel very complaining. A mind that complains is a non-religious mind. A mind that feels grateful is a religious mind. Feel grateful... as grateful as possible.

And once you start looking around you find that God has given so much... and we are so blind, so deaf, that we don't see at all. Such an incredible world, such a wonderful existence, such a tremendous mystery.

Each moment of it is an eternity, a diamond but we go on losing it and we are not even grateful for it.

Feel grateful, and through gratefulness you will grow. Never complain. If you can drop all complaining, that will be your prayer, your meditation.

So whenever the mind starts creating some complaint, immediately become aware and drop it.

And suddenly you will see that once the complaining mind has disappeared and gratefulness has come in, you will start looking at life with different eyes... totally different eyes.

You will not see this ordinary world you will see an extraordinary existence... luminous! It is delight... all over! It is a benediction, but we are blind and complaints are like screens they don't allow us to see.

And once you know that life is a gift, love is a gift, you start feeling more feminine, more receptive. Then you become less aggressive.

When God has given life and has given love, he will give heaven too... he will give truth too. When this miracle of life has become possible, why not the other miracle?

Then one starts waiting. Even seeking stops. One is simply tremendously trustful that everything has happened, everything will happen, and everything as it is, is good.

Everything is graceful, everything is good, everything is a gift, and wrong simply does not happen. All that happens is good.

Wrong has never happened. If you feel something is wrong, it is your interpretation; it is your complaining mind.

Once you drop the mind, you will suddenly see that everything is as it should be. And in that understanding is relaxation.
