Many of us have spiritual practices that bring our attention to gratitude. We give thanks for the lives that we have and all the things that make our lives what they are. I certainly commend gratitude as an ongoing practice. It is antidote to pessimism, complaining, and scarcity.
Gratitude can bring us into the present moment like nothing else.
This Thanksgiving and throughout the holidays, practice taking stock of your life by practicing gratitude. Focus not on the things missing from your life. Those are the small hungers that are rarely satisfied. Look, instead, to the goodness around you and find ways to give thanks.
The genius, Albert Einstein, once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Look to the miracle of gratitude as we celebrate Thanksgiving once again. Everything is a miracle!
