This weekend, we'll continue to explore how we can find lasting contentment, a sense of centered peace that allows us to live with clarity and equanimity, by turning to the practice of gratitude.
Elie Wiesel, Nobel Prize winner and writer, said:
“When a person doesn’t have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.”
It’s true, isn’t it? Choosing to be grateful — even in the midst of difficult times — has a soul-sculpting effect.
That wonderful theologian, Willie Nelson, said: “When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around."
I have noticed that the more grateful I am, the more beauty I see.
We’ll explore these two passages and explore their particular relevance in a world that seems to be in much chaos. I encourage you to read them ahead of time.
With abundant gratitude for you all,
