Why is it so Hard to feel Gratitude?

November 22, 2017


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US. 

Have you noticed that no matter how poor people are, anywhere in the world, they are all engaged in a desperate struggle for survival? 

No matter how bad their life is, they want more of it.

This survival instinct is mirrored by all people no matter their material status.

Life must be pretty good if people cling to it so tenaciously.

However, if we compare the time and energy we devote to ensuring our survival with the time and energy we spend feeling grateful for life; well, there's no comparison. 

I doubt if we spend 1/10th of one percent of our energy feeling grateful for the thing we love so much that we dedicate the other 99.9% of our energy to maintain. 

Part of the reason is that we don't know whom to thank because the Illuminati have stolen God. God is the magnificent power that gave us the gift of life.

Thank you, God!

Not only do we not feel gratitude, we devote a ton of energy to being actively ungrateful. 

I'm pretty comfortable but there is a hardly a day that goes by that I don't rue some investment decision I didn't made 20 years ago. 
Enough is always a little more than what one has, wrote Samuel Butler.

I have to think about people who are suffering in order to appreciate how good my life is. Isn't that pathetic? 

 Thanksgiving is a time to think about the glass half-full rather than half-empty, a time to think of what's right instead of what's wrong. 

And while many have been traumatized by politics, we can be grateful that we still have democracy and a large measure of freedom.  Let's not take that for granted either.

First Comment from Peter W

Usually, because people have never been truly without. The ingrates are usually those with enough who want more.  Having lived in Africa working with the poor out in the bush I have seen children make toys from coat hangers and shoe polish tins, rubber inner tubes, and food tins while their mothers walked ten miles for well water.  I never heard them complain. The men came out with an oft-repeated "Mr Peter we are suffering" daily and they weren't doing more than stating a fact. As a 26-year-old paid $30 a month they knew I was not Santa Claus but were pleased I was there.

Having to boil water always for drinking, catching Malaria and doing without phone or electrical devices, my bi-weekly treck to the Capital in a Missionary's truck was a joy.

Later years saw me travel throughout the Middle East, North Africa and India and Pakistan. Deprivation?  Go to Mumbai or Kolkota and ask if you would like to live under a plastic sheet on the roadside. So, Henry, it is easier to be thankful yet I too drift into the "I wish I had a newer car" syndrome.

2 years I tasked my youngest son to write a list of 100 things he was thankful for - he declared it impossible and once I explained, came up with a list within ten minutes.  Give thanks to God every day for food and friends and home and shelter and electricity and shops with products in them (Romania didn't nor did post-Soviet Russia), internet shopping, freedom to worship, a job, warm clean water, a bed, sheets, white goods. The list is endless.

Once practiced daily the gratitude becomes normal. Do we have all we want? No. Do we have all we need to keep body and soul together? Yes. Did the poor complain in Africa and India?  They begged and they sat in the dust but I have heard more complaining at Macy's on Sale Day than I have in the developing world. And the greatest thing to be thankful for is Salvation through Christ a free gift.  

James 1:17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Happy Black Friday where Mammon rears its ugly head.

Comments for "Why is it so Hard to feel Gratitude? "

Robert K said (November 25, 2016):

Why should we feel gratitude when, as we are told incessantly, "There's no free lunch"? In other words, nothing in this life can come to us as a gift. We must expect to have to earn everything we get.

This is the most arrogant, false, abominable proposition ever devised by the demons among us. No primitive people has been so foolish as to advance it: they knew better because they were in touch with the real things of earth. It took the mad abstractionists--Marxists, Fabian Socialists, Money Men, etc.--to construct a matrix of perverse statistics that disarmed ordinary people against this assault on their common sense.

If I look at everything in my life, patently it has virtually all come to me freely, as a gift. Air is just there for me to breathe, water to drink, the abundance inherent in nature to eat, etc. Some power has given me a bunch of organs that not only perform miracles but work together to keep me alive. And what is this "being alive": I can hardly claim responsibility for that.

I have at my disposal a most fantastic array of technologies and products that have been inherited from previous generations. I never invented the wheel or the silicon chip, yet I have use of them.

I have the love of my family and friends, and my dog if I have one; I would be shattered to learn that this love had to be "earned" in accordance with some puritanical law of reciprocity. I have also freely had the benefit of the Incarnation that showed me my purpose and how I have been created to relate to others.

People do not feel gratitude as they should because they see things disconnected and out of proportion. They have had their egos stoked by delusions about their personal achievements and independence. If you took out of their lives everything to which they have contributed absolutely nothing, then they would be reduced to lifeless nonentities.

George said (November 25, 2016):

Another great and timely article.

Why do we find it hard to feel gratitude?

I suspect it is because we don't reflect enough about our precarious and very temporary situation
on this planet. This is likely due to our "not having enough time", being "too busy".

This in turn is most probably due to our ever-increasing paced "treadmill" geared by, primarily, the TV. (which
tells us, especially at this time frame, to go shopping, what to buy, what to do etc).

I find that those that fill the malls are shopping for happiness, acceptability, and find none.
It may well be that they are trying to fill the emptiness inside them, created by the false lifestyle foisted on us all.

Women Prefer Dogs to Family

(Dogs, not people, benefit from feminism.) 

The other side of white genocide is that Western women
prefer having dogs to children. Watch this video by Lauren Southern. It is truly frightening. Birthrates in the West are below
replacement. Women have been brainwashed to reject family. This also has dire implications in terms of identity, support, and purpose. Family - marriage, and children - gives life meaning. The Deep State wants people to be autonomous.
"We shall destroy all collective force but our own," says The Protocols of Zion (16) 

World birthrates- divide by 3 digits to get the rate per woman. 2.1 is sustainable 

The trend can no longer be ignored. Whenever I go for a walk, I encounter many solitary women walking dogs. Here is a NY Post article from 2014 that also noted the trend.

"Data shows that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 to 29 corresponds with a huge increase in the number of tiny pooches owned by young US women."

By Antonio Antenucci and David K. Li 

America's next generation of youngsters should be called "Generation Rex."

If you're wondering why playgrounds around the city are so quiet and dog runs are packed, a new report has an answer: More and more US women are forgoing motherhood and getting their maternal kicks by owning handbag-size canines.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 to 29 corresponds with a huge increase in the number of tiny pooches owned by young US women, reports the business-news site Quartz.

Dog-crazy New York ladies told The Post that they aren't surprised by the findings -- and that they happily gave up diaper changes, temper tantrums and college funds for the easy affection of their doggy "child."

 "I'd rather have a dog over a kid," declared Sara Foster, 30, a Chelsea equities trader who says her French bulldog, Maddie, brings her more joy than a child. "It's just less work and, honestly, I have more time to go out. You . . . don't have to get a babysitter."

The federal data behind the report show that over the past seven years, the number of live births per 1,000 women between ages 15 and 29 in America has plunged 9 percent. [See US Fertility Rate Reaches Record Low in 2017]

At the same time, research by the American Pet Products Association shows the number of small dogs -- under 25 pounds -- in the United States has skyrocketed, from 34. 1 million in 2008 to 40.8 million in 2012.

 "Women are not only having fewer children but are also getting married later. There are more single and unmarried women in their late 20s and early 30s, which also happens to be the demographic that buys the most small dogs," market researcher Damian Shore told Quartz.

Asked if he thought the drop in baby births and the rise in puppy ownership was a coincidence or if women these days were really making dogs their little bundles of joy, Shore said, "There's definitely some replacement happening there."

Dog lovers interviewed by The Post said the trend has long been going on in the city, where single women with pocket pooches have been a standard for years.

Mary Smith, 25, of Murray Hill, said her 6-month-old French bulldog, Toliver, brings her as much joy as a baby would.

"Dogs are better! Look at Toliver! He's great, except he snores a lot. He even has his own Instagram," Smith said during a walk with the pooch. "A dog is easier to transport than a child. It's less final than having a child."

First Comment by Corine

Sadly this is getting to be a worldwide trend. Marriage and children are just for social status and to look "successful".

People want nothing to do with diaper change or parents - teachers  meetings. 
Kids are crammed in filthy daycares as young as 1 month old or left with nannies or maids while parents are working and later on enjoying after works or cruises or weekends get away.

Fewer and fewer women can cook let alone handle house chores and child-rearing.
 As a result, daughters are becoming bossy little sluts who brag about performing blow jobs on grown men in exchange for I phones and really really stupid and expensive stuff like human hair weaves.
Sons are getting more and more effeminate, irresponsible and plain old lazy.

I would suspect some of these women have sex with those dogs.   Spending that much money on a dog? It must be giving more than a lick on a face.

Connie said (October 31, 2017):

Do these women have FATHERS? Whose job is it to tell their little princess how China's one child policy has been working out? And you say you are having NONE! Fido will take care of you in your old age?? The baby boomers are too busy on their cruises and taking their Viagra to give a rip about their legacy.

Al Thompson said (October 30, 2017):

I see a lot of this when I got to the dog park. There are a lot of women; without men, who are walking their dogs. The love and companionship of a dog outpace
most relationships with people. Fortunately, dogs cannot be brainwashed into any political or religious order.

People are getting much more nasty than when I was a child and it is getting worse. I mean really, who wants to marry an asshole? Dogs give all the love we're going to get; that's the reality of it. The relationships between men and women have been destroyed and it will be difficult to get it back to where it needs to be.

Trudeau Squanders Taxpayer Money on Pampered Minorities

November 21, 2017

Trudeau plans to compensate homosexuals for 
discrimination suffered in the past when homosexuality was illegal.
He is either unwilling or unable to distinguish
between genuine discrimination and a legitimate policy
which reflected social mores at the time. How much
will it cost to rewrite history according to Communist diktat?

"Who is next to be compensated? Will all those homosexuals who were not permitted to marry prior to 2005 want to be compensated? Will all those women denied abortion prior to 1969 when it was prohibited by the Criminal Code also receive compensation?"

News Release - Real Women of Canada, Nov. 21, 2017

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seems willing to pay out taxpayers' money on demand.

Whether it is $10.5 million to Omar Khadr (according to an Angus Reid poll 71% of Canadians objected to this payment) or, the $31.25 million paid to the three Syrians tortured in Syria for "the role any Canadian Officials may have played in regard to their treatment abroad".

Now, Trudeau has announced that he is committed to paying taxpayers' money to homosexual public servants and members of the military who lost their jobs in the past. This compensation was based on a $600 million class-action lawsuit against the Liberal government by Toronto based homosexual activist lawyer, Doug Elliott.

trudeau-trannies .jpg
This compensation was also recommended by the homosexual lobby group EGALE, in its June 2016 report entitled "The Just Society". Not only is Trudeau going to make the financial payout to these individuals but he also plans to apologize "on behalf of all Canadians" for perceived "persecution and injustices" allegedly suffered by them.

Who is next to be compensated? Will all those homosexuals who were not permitted to marry prior to 2005 want to be compensated? Will all those women denied abortion prior to 1969 when it was prohibited by the Criminal Code also receive compensation?

Trudeau is either unwilling or unable to distinguish between genuine discrimination, which has occurred in the past, and the treatment of homosexuals in the government. For example,
  • Canada forced Chinese immigrants to pay a head tax to enter Canada, and refused to allow them to bring their families to Canada;
  • In 1914 Canada refused to allow passengers from India to land in Canada;
  • In 1939 Canada turned away 900 German Jews seeking sanctuary; and
  • In 1942 the Canadian government ordered the evacuation of all persons of Japanese origin to internment camps and seized their property.
The situation with regard to the homosexuals is different. Homosexuality was prohibited under the Criminal Code until Pierre Elliott Trudeau decriminalized it in 1969 for consenting adults over 21 years of age, (later reduced to 18 years of age). The practice of homosexuality, therefore, was a crime. This prohibition was in accordance with the social and cultural values of the time. In short, the Criminal Code prohibition against homosexuality was based on a consensus of the Canadian public. 

The reason for the dismissal of homosexuals in the military and public servants was because they could be the subject of blackmail if their sexual orientation was publicly disclosed. This blackmail could result in not only forcing homosexuals to pay money in return for silence, but also could include requiring them to divulge national security secrets to which they were privy because of their employment. It was this national security risk that led to their dismissal.

One may not agree with the past law prohibiting homosexuality, but such action by the government was distinguishable from the genuine discrimination experienced by others.

Homosexuals were at all times accepted as citizens with all their inherent rights and privileges and were capable of being employed elsewhere, other than in the government.

Trudeau's payout and apology to homosexuals are unreasonable and unjustified.

First Comment from Peter D

 just read your article on the continued treachery of communist subversive Justin Trudeau It reminded me of a similar thing already done by another despicable communist traitor in Scotland called Nicola Sturgeon, currently First Minister for Scotland. Please see link below. There is at least to mention, yet, of the homosexuals getting any compensation here in Scotland.

These events are a bit disturbing considering the way it could be applied to people convicted of child rape. Are they going to eventually be pardoned if the age of consent is ever reduced?

Why should there be an apology for something which was a crime at the time?

Organized Jewry acts as Rothschild Proxy

November 19, 2017

Organized Jewry acts as Rothschild Proxy 

William Aberhart (1878-1943) was Social Credit Premier of Alberta from 1935-1943. 
He tried to break the Rothschild monopoly on money creation, As Robert K
demonstrates, Organized Jewry behaved as a proxy for the Rothschilds, defending
their fraudulent monopoly on government credit by the most ruthless means. 

by Robert K

Henry, you say you are "alarmed that political freedom--free speech and the right of peaceful assembly-- has been curtailed in Canada, making it sound as if this is a new phenomenon.  Your regular commentary belies this impression.

Janine Stingel's study Social Credit: Anti-Semitism, Social Credit and the Jewish Response (McGill-Queen's University Press, 2000), which grew from her doctoral thesis, reveals with candour the covert methods used decades ago by Jewish organizations to subvert the Social Credit government of the Province of Alberta (first elected in 1935) and its less remarkable foray into federal politics.  

In her introduction, she credits the "exhaustive work" on Social Credit by Louis Rosenberg of the Canadian Jewish Congress with enabling her to write the book (p. xiv).  As I have been unable to find references to Rosenberg's work in this area on the Internet, I suspect that his gargantuan efforts were clandestine as far as the wider Canadian public is concerned.  Note that Stingel had privileged access to the National Archives of the Canadian Jewish Congress, which at the time she is concerned with had concluded that Social Credit was its "most serious public relations problem" (p. 5).

The Social Credit parties, Albertan and federal, in the 1930s and 1940s captured the attention of Canadian and American Jewish organizations because of the evidence of what Stingel terms, without definition, "anti-Semitism" among their ranks.  This led to proposals for multifaceted covert methods of "battle" (p. 6), and attack "by all means, fair or foul" (p. 123, words of Wolfe Margolus) against Social Credit (presumably covered under the rubric of the "fight against our common enemy", phraseology used in a joint resolution of the Canadian Jewish Congress and B'nai Brith in 1938--p. 29) including: 

 employing private detectives to collect information to blacken the reputations of key Social Credit leaders (p. 123);

targeting certain key Social Credit leaders for defeat in their ridings (p. 123); funnelling money to the rival (Socialist) CCF party (p. 124); 

bringing criminal charges on the basis of seditious libel and defamatory libel (p. 110); 

meeting with the American Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Congress and the American Jewish Committee for advice on how to deal with the Social Credit phenomenon in Western Canada (p. 118); 

closely monitoring Social Credit speeches, correspondence, and memoranda (p. 118);

 accumulating "all data" shedding discredit on Social Credit parliamentarians or supporters (p. 118); 

discrediting the party leaders by means of "a constant barrage of literature" (p. 118); 

getting the American government to bar Member of Parliament Norman Jaques from the USA and "us[ing] this widely for publicity purposes" (p. 118); 

looking into obtaining a formal censure of Jaques in the House of Commons (p. 118);

 investigating whether the Canadian Legion could be persuaded to protest the Social Credit platform (p. 119); 

finding churches, trade unions and other political parties wanting to "obliterate" Social Credit (p. 119); 

undertaking "smear campaigns" (p. 120, recommended by the ADL); 

infiltrating disreputable people into the Social Credit movement (p. 120, recommended by the American Jewish Committee).  

Of course, all these schemes--none of which Stingel finds fault with on ethical grounds--were intended covertly to subvert the expressed political preferences of the people of Alberta.

BTW, if Stingel cannot substantiate her unreferenced and never-before-heard-of assertion that near the end of his life the founder of Social Credit, Major C.H. Douglas, was "hospitalized and diagnosed as certifiably insane" (p. 16), McGill University clearly has a duty to withdraw her doctoral status and to censure all who approved her thesis.  But, given the scandalous record of this institution (e.g., CIA/MKUltra experimentation), I'm not holding my breath waiting.

Take Five Minutes to Watch this Mind Blowing Speech

November 15, 2017

"We're both guards and prisoners" 

 "OK. Yes, we are bored. We're all bored now. But has it ever occurred to you Wally that the process that creates this boredom that we see in the world now may very well be a self-perpetuating, unconscious form of brainwashing, created by a world totalitarian government based on money, and that all of this is much more dangerous than one thinks? and it's not just a question of individual survival Wally, but that somebody who's bored is asleep, and somebody who's asleep will not say no?

They've built their own prison, so they exist a state of schizophrenia. They're both guards and prisoners and as a result, they no longer have, having been lobotomized, the capacity to leave the prison they've made, or to even see it as a prison."

Bombshell! Roy Rogers Posthumously Implicated 
in Sexual Misconduct with Horse

Trigger "Triggered" by Weinstein Controversy

"My rear-quarters were patted." 

c. 2017 S.A.P. (spiritualist associated press)

Famed psychic/meduim Maureen Handcock recently held a seance to contact the famous horse, Trigger, to find out how he was enjoying the afterlife.

"Trigger, Roy Rogers' beautiful Golden Palomino stallion, and co-star with Roy in many of his movies and Roy's TV show, was often billed as "the smartest horse in the movies".

The two of them appeared in dozens of westerns in the 1930s and 40s, always chasing and thwarting the bad guys, and working to serve peace and justice.

Trigger even shared the movie title with Roy on two occasions: My Pal Trigger (1946) and Trigger, Jr. (1950).

Smiley Burnette, who played Roy's sidekick in his first two films, was watching and mentioned how quick on the trigger this horse was. Roy agreed and decided that Trigger was the perfect name for the horse. Roy purchased the horse for $2,500 and eventually outfitted it with a $5,000 gold/silver saddle."

 Among other things meduim Maureen Handcock wanted to know was, if Trigger had gone to "purgatory" first before entering heaven. Trigger, billed as the smartest horse to ever live said "No!"

Trigger was also asked how he was treated by Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and that's when things really heated up. Trigger reportedly told Maureen that after his performances Roy would remove his briddle and saddle and pat his side towards his rear-end telling him what a good horse he was. He said that Dale Evans would also do the same thing when they were both together with him.

"Come to think of it, it was definitely sexual misconduct by Rogers and Evans," Trigger added. "I felt embarrassed and degraded." "They both treated me like I was some kind of an animal or something,"

Maureen Handcock then concluded the se'ance and reported the above story to S.A.P. and media outlets the world over.
