I sometimes see some people say, “Thank you,” to make themselves feel stable but it is a form of self-absorption. I also sometimes see that some people say, “Thank you,” before they talk to me, to guard themselves from something based on their imagined fear or anxiety. These behaviors seem creepy to me.
Gratitude is not only expressed in words. Even if we say, “I don’t like you,” we can pour the energy of gratitude into those words. And if we truly feel gratitude, we cannot stop sincerely making efforts to have a clean and purified physical body as a part of Earth. Because clean and purified matter has an energy that stabilizes everything.
When we use gratitude to make us stable, it is a greedy and escapist action.
