Power of “Thank You God for Everything” chanting
There was a bird who lived in a desert — very sick, no feathers, nothing to eat and drink, no shelter to live in.
One day a dove was passing by. The sick unhappy bird stopped the dove and inquired “Where are you going?” it replied “I am going to heaven”.
So the sick bird said “Could you please find out for me, when will my suffering come to end?”
The dove said, “Sure, I will.” and bid a good bye to the sick bird.
The dove reached heaven and shared the message of the sick bird with the angel in-charge at the entrance gate.
The angel said, “For the next seven years of its life the bird has to suffer like this, no happiness till then.”
The dove said, “When the sick bird hears this he will get disheartened. Could you please suggest any solution for this?”
The Angel replied, “Tell him to recite this verse Thank you God for everything every day as many times as he can.”
The dove on meeting the sick bird again, delivered the message of the angel to it .
After seven days the dove was passing again passing by and noticed that bird was very happy, feathers grew on his body, a small plant grew up in the desert area, and a small pond of water was also there. The bird was singing and dancing cheerfully.
The dove was astonished.
The Angel had said that there would be no happiness for the bird for the next seven years.
With this question in mind the dove went to visit the angel at heaven’s gate.
The dove put forth his query to the Angel. The Angel replied, “Yes it is true there was no happiness for the bird for seven years. However because the bird was reciting the verse “Thank you God for everything“ in every situation, his life changed.”
When the 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”.
When it was thirsty and there was no water around, it said, “Thank you God for everything”.
Whatever the situation, the bird kept on repeating, “Thank you God for everything” and therefore the seven years got dissolved in seven days.”
When I heard this story, I felt a tremendous shift in my way of feeling, thinking, accepting and viewing life.
I too adopted this verse in my life. Whatever the situation I faced I started reciting this verse “Thank you God for everything”.
It helped me to shift my view from what I did not have to what I have in my life.
For instance; if I have a headache, I say “Thank you God that the rest of my body is completely fine and healthy. And soon I notice that the headache does not bother me at all.
In the same manner I started using this verse in my relationships — whether family, friends, neighbours, colleagues, health,finances, social life, business and everything with which I can relate.
I keep sharing this story with everyone I came in touch with and it brought a great shift in their behaviour too.
I started feeling how blessed I am, how happy I am, how good life is.
YOU too can keep reciting this verse continuously and experience the shift in your life.
“Thank you God for everything” is the attitude to adopt in 2020 and forever.
Be Blessed and Be a Blessing for all people around to you.
