Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.*
A refined soul is in general one with the gift of transforming the most limited task and the most petty object into something infinite by the way in which it is handled.**
To be more grateful is to lay down a path into awe.
Gratitude is a choice that we make the invisible visible, opening a greater world: more colourful, bigger, filled with wonders:
The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a bad of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.^
