Scripture encourages us “to be grateful in all circumstances for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus”

This call was awakened in me in the 1970s through Brother David Steindl-Rast, OSB and the practice continues today as I participate with Oprah & Deepak in a 21 day Meditation Experience, Manifesting Grace through Gratitude.

In today’s meditation we explored how the practice of gratitude reveals the hidden qualities of our awareness, wonder, joy and beauty. Gratitude awakens these dormant gifts of our unlimited self and makes them powerful forces of positive change in our lives. As our self expands through gratitude, our concerns, anxieties and insecurities become small and insignificant, while our experience of joy, freedom, beauty, and compassion continues to grow. So today let us be grateful for all that came into our lives and open ourselves to the gifts and blessings each brought to encourage and support us on our journey.

If you are seeking more inspiration on Gratitude, check out Youtube and Bro. David Steindl-Rast, OSB. For me He is the Presence of Gratitude. He has 5 minute to hour messages on Gratitude that will warm your heart and feed your soul!
