When we start losing things, when things start going wrong in our life, when things we treasure are lost, most of us slip into an ungrateful state of mind. We do this because we see our loss as a bad thing, as a sort of punishment, when in reality, the loss of one thing opens up the door for a new and wonderful thing. However, if we complain about what we have lost rather than being grateful for what we have, we will lose more things until we have nothing at all. As long as we complain about what we lost and don't have, we will never see our loss replaced with something more wonderful than we had before. It is the law.
