only a fixed quantity of each resource -

inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.

are strengthened and empowered to help.

We can all have food, and jobs, and love, and happiness.

regardless of whether it was more or less than yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude, I can be grateful for all the people,

regardless of what I had yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude,
I can be grateful each day for the gift of life itself.
