Gratitude - A Means Or A Result?

Gratitude is said to be essential for creating a better life of health, wealth and happiness. But is this true? Is the daily journal, like the one Oprah and many others keep, and is the Abraham-Hicks exercise of a 'rampage of appreciation', an effective means for experiencing true happiness and abundance? Or is this human quality an automatic and spontaneous by-product of being happy and at peace with oneself?

So, the big question is this: is gratitude a means to a more fulfilled life, or is it the result?

I am truly curious to know what others feel about this quality or attitude, and any role it might have in creating a better life for oneself.

What do YOU feel?

Good Question!
by: PruJoy

Good on you Gavin for being able to condense a whole lot of conjecture into this one neat question!

"is gratitude a means to a more fulfilled life, or is it the result?"

Looking at it like that I would definitely answer that it is a result of finding happiness or peace in one's life.

The very word "means" explains a whole lot of "New Age" theories - they are seeking something "better than" what they already have or believe they don't have.

Whereas as per your own Conscious mental Rest explanation of life - happiness, peace, bliss is always already "there" for us to access at any time with the only necessity being the actual "doing" of it (accessing it that is) ;-)
