The Philosophy and Practices of the Society of the Faith Master
Society of the Faith Master is
our optional non-secular gratitude outreach. Gratitude is the Survival
Lightkey for us all, empowerment for all, whether you have a religious
belief or do not have any such beliefs. All are acceptable in the
gratitude immersion world we are building, with those who are willing to
live their lives with gratitude.
This society is for those who seek
the religious dimension of faith and gratitude. We have a strong dogma or
code of belief in the inherent goodness of our species and its future
as spiritual beings. Our society is designed to be a high energy place, a
happy place, based on building self-esteem, gratitude, praise and faith.
The purpose of our worship services and
classes is to enhance the quality of life of our members and to
help our members develop community, structure, meaning and a
superordinate goal. That means helping our members develop
faith, building their self-esteem, teaching them how to use the
Gratitude Law of
Attraction, and giving them the other teachings of the
society such as communication skills, entrepreneurial skills and

Gratitude is important to you
WHY BE GRATEFUL?
Reason 1: Whatever your
situation you have a lot to be grateful for
including being alive today.
being grateful, you realize you are being blessed.
These blessings filter into your subconscious mind
and it brings more blessings to you.
Reason 2: You have the
components available to you to experience life: air,
water, plants, roads, lights, etc.
Reason 3: You have an important
part to play through gratitude to build your own
self-esteem. When being grateful for things, persons
and events you wake up. You realize a different
perspective so that you see what you have in a
different light. You stop being a sleep-walker
taking advantage of resources provided by someone
else or something else and made by many others on
their way to being purchased. Before you wake up,
it’s as though somehow you should have those things.
Thus, you desire more things. Instead, by being
grateful, you realize you are being blessed. When you feel blessed,
your self-esteem grows. You feel important. You feel
Reason 4: Be grateful because
some force somehow has maneuvered you through a
dangerous life in which many wicked people,
dangerous situations and perilous conditions gave
you the right to try incredibly dangerous things and
Reason 5: Be grateful because
you are still standing, or can still write, see,
read, talk, and feel.
Reason 6: You have been given
much which means you have a debt. When you have a
debt, “Pay first because sooner or later, you will
pay your entire debt,” says Emerson. And when you
pay later, you pay it with interest. Gratitude is
the first step of paying a debt.
Reason 7: Be grateful because
you feel good when you are grateful because of the
endorphins in your brain.
Reason 8: Be grateful for the
joy of giving back to a universe that has given much
Reason 9: Be grateful because
in doing so you serve as a role model for those
around you in how to deal with the seeming loss of a
bad experience by demonstrating your gratitude in
the face of all that.
Reason 10: Be grateful. Emerson
says, “…do not let good stay in your hands; send
it out lest it rust and decay.” Gratitude expressed
moves the good on. This is a universe that needs to
keep moving. When you are ungrateful, it stops the
flow of good.
Reason 11: Be grateful because
being grateful adds to the positive energy in the
Reason 12: Be grateful
if you belong to IGEI or the Society of the Faith Master because you belong to a Gratitude Immersion Culture.
Thus you and everyone experience the gratitude
through the use of the FourFold Way.
Reason 13: The Bible exhorts
you to be grateful, “Pray with thanksgiving.” When
you express gratitude, you are being obedient.
Reason 14: By always being
grateful you are a key component of lifting mankind
to the spiritual level.
Reason 15: By always being
grateful you, through the Gratitude Law of
Attraction, bring more of the things you want into
Reason 16: By always being
grateful you build your own self-esteem and give
yourself permission to be happy and joyful.
Reason 17: By always being
grateful you make it possible for you to weather any
storm that comes into your life because you know
there is a reason for it even though you cannot see
Reason 18: So you, like Joseph,
who was sold into slavery, had accepted it. He learned
many things and was grateful for it, and thus he
transformed it into his personal triumph over the
vagaries of life. Joseph became second in command
to the Pharaoh and saved many people’s lives
including Joseph’s own family. And we, too, can
transform our difficulties into personal triumphs,
when we are grateful.
Reason 19: Always being
grateful makes you happy no matter what happens.
That is quite a transformation that we learn as we
Reason 20: Always being
grateful makes you walk serenely through everything
even though there is death, destruction and pain all
around you. Just like the assurance in the 23rd
Psalm, “… though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil.”
Reason 21: Always being
grateful makes you walk confidently through life
with the promise in the 91st Psalm, “He
shall call upon me and I will answer. I will be with
him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.”
You are fearless because there is nothing to fear.”
There is always an essence behind each event, an
essence which emerges into your consciousness when
you are ready.
Reason 22: Always being
grateful means you relax and put down your burden of
trying to keep the universe afloat. You can learn to
let go. You only have to do your part, not everyone

General information -
IGEI is a Social Enterprise Corporation
|Our Mantra - Always Be Grateful! Always!
The International Gratitude
(IGEI) is a social enterprise corporation
that has social benefit purposes. The International Gratitude
Empowerment Institute (IGEI) sells products and services for creating a
gratitude immersion world. In addition to our profit motive, we are
creating a gratitude immersion worldwide community based on the Way of
Success through Gratitude.
The Way of Success through Gratitude includes these
Gratitude Healing Ways
Gratitude In Business
Gratitude & Spiritual Healing
Gratitude Communication Skills
Society of the Faith Master
In addition to our profit motive, it is a social
purpose corporation with these additional social benefits and goals:
1) Community: To create and
provide an environment for low and middle income people to learn how to
work together positively by teaching personal self-esteem building and
how to build self-esteem in others, thus developing a community based on
faith and gratitude resulting in a gratitude immersion culture.
To empower girls and women through special programs including sports and
entertainment projects for self-esteem building and character
development. To enable them to have a superordinate goal of giving to
the world with no expectation of personal return such as tree planting
projects to fight climate change. To use gratitude in sports to give
strength to women and girls to heal from sexual abuse and domestic
3) Entrepreneurship: Develop
social entrepreneurship projects through micro-financing of small and
medium-sized enterprises including entrepreneurial training programs.
4) Technology: To teach skills to
minorities, women and youth to become Mobile Entrepreneurs through
technologies such as Skype, webinars and podcasts anywhere in the world.
Today’s entrepreneur needs to master these skills even if they have a
brick and mortar outlet for their business. We will teach them how they
can use these new technologies to build their business.
5) Spiritual Development: Through
our self-esteem building programs we will increase personal fulfillment,
enable people to create peaceful loving relationships. When we build
self-esteem, we build a person's spirit. Spiritual development is the
key to bringing us all together to work and live together in a peaceful
world. Spiritual development in our workforce makes people want to be
productive, to be creative and to give their loyalty to each other and
their employers. Without spiritual development it is difficult for
people to lead productive, happy lives.
6): Spiritual Therapy Programs:
Many people understand how important it is to build the self-esteem of
young people and working age people. But many people don't understand
the needs of the Elderly, Disabled and Wheelchair Rider populations.
Some see them as unimportant or nonproductive. But many people don't
understand how they feel and the benefits we all can gain from them. The
fact is, in the IGEI Gratitude Immersion World, we understand that these
populations have a great deal to offer. The fact is they have much they
can learn, much to feel, and much to share which can help us understand
gratitude in many ways.
There are many stories of
are not in wheelchairs but are bedridden,
who make their families' lives happy by their
cheerful, loving, giving, and self-esteem building personalities.
Everyone has something to give. But the fact is, no one can give from an
empty dish. No matter where you live there are others around you who
need positive energy. How do we give them a way to build their own self-esteem
so they can give to their world?
Through spiritual therapy you
will learn how to use gratitude as a power to build
your own self-esteem and reach out into the world to give to
others. One way is by being in the outdoors,
fishing and being close to nature where
your wholeness. By creating intergenerational
volunteer programs you practice the gratitude
skills you are learning. We share with them
the spiritual therapy programs of IGEI.
Spiritual Therapy is a spiritual healing method
that focuses on the rebuilding of inner wholeness. Techniques include
gratitude practices, self-esteem building, meditation, affirmations,
and reprogramming your subconscious mind. These techniques are
based on repetitive actions and interactions,
building new connections in your brain, to help yourself and
others to grow, become more creative and develop spiritual health.
Rebuilding your self-esteem is a vital part of spiritual therapy because
high self-esteem is the basis of wholeness.
Spiritual therapy is best performed in nature
because in nature you are able to reconnect with Mother Earth, become
grounded and feel the energy around us. Our original way of life was
immersed in the natural world. Once cities formed when agriculture
developed, the clearings of civilization through the development of
urbanization separated us from our connection with the earth. Spiritual
therapy through fishing is designed to reestablish that connection.
includes fishing as an
important ecospiritual component of IGEI.
Fishing teaches people to
hope, to keep trying over and over again.
