Gratitude

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Gratitude
“I am grateful for all of my problems. After each one was overcome, I became stronger and more able to meet those that were still to come. I grew in all my difficulties.” ~ J.C. Penney
The problems and challenges of life are opportunities for personal growth and each of our experiences are best seen in that light: with gratitude. If for one entire day all you felt was gratitude, your life would miraculously change. Perhaps today?
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie
We are happy when we feel gratitude. We feel gratitude more when we are perceiving the present moment, mind relatively empty and heart full with love. This is the key to happiness.
“In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.” ~ David Steindl-Rast
As Oprah Winfrey said, "Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."
“What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it--would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have.” ~ Ralph Marston
It's impossible to feel grateful and in the same moment depressed, angry or afraid. People who live the most fulfilling lives are the ones who are always rejoicing at what they have. If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, your heart will soon be filled with love and understanding, a feeling that nurtures the soul. As Meister Eckhardt says, "If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."
“When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that is present... we experience heaven on earth.” ~ Sarah Breathnach
The very best way to bring good things into your life is to be grateful for the abundance that you already have. See this exercise at Love is All You Need on the Trans4mind site.

6 Ways To Be Grateful and Happier ~ by Dr. Alan Zimmerman

Ask people what they want out of their lives or their jobs, and the vast majority will say, "I just want to be happy." Problem is ... many of them have no idea how to arrive in the state of happiness. So some of them work hard, to buy things they don't need, to impress people they don't like ... thinking that will make them happy. Wrong! That's called "keeping up with the Jones," which is not the same thing as happiness. Continues...

Podcast: Gratitude: The Key to Happiness
Gratitude is often overlooked or taken for granted. No big deal, just for birthdays. However, I feel that actually it is crucial. Indeed, it is the key to happiness.
