“If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” Meister Eckhart
Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present. Giving thanks makes people happier and more resilient, it strengthens relationships, it improves health, and it reduces stress.
There's no better person to describe the wonder of gratitude than Brother David Steindl-Rast along with Louie Schwartzberg's beautiful photography in this Moving Art's video. Enjoy!
