A VERY good observation

This is by Brother David Steindl-Rast from his book, A Listening Heart:

Happiness is not what makes us grateful. It is gratefulness that makes us happy.
Don't wait to be grateful. Start now. Find something that you're grateful for - anything. Can you see? Be grateful for that. Is the sky blue today? Be grateful for that. I was grateful for last night's unbelievably stunning full moon. Find something. Happiness will follow. It really will.

  1. You are right. Being grateful is so important. My guru recently told me that I have to continue to be grateful even in grim times....because hidden in this is a lesson from God.

    Hope you dont mind my dropping in.
