Gratitude Restores Order to the Universe

Gratitude is a strong and mighty emotion that calms the spirit and restores order to the universe.  To be grateful, of course, you must first be needy or want something very much.  If you think you deserve whatever it is that you want, you won’t be grateful when you get it; rather, you will feel that you have been reimbursed or remunerated for your effort.
