Gratitude for Everything
Today is a mixed bag of quotes on Gratitude..
|“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.”
|“If the only prayer you say in your life is “thank you,” that would suffice.”
|“Find the good — and praise it.”
|Give thanks for a little and you will find a lot.”

|“They are not poor that have little, but they that desire much. The richest man, whatever his lot, is the one who’s content with his lot”
|“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
|“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
|“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”
|“Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.”
|“Gratitude is our most direct line to God and the angels. If we take the time, no matter how crazy and troubled we feel, we can find something to be thankful for. The more we seek gratitude, the more reason the angels will give us for gratitude and joy to exist in our lives.”
–Terry Lynn Taylor
|“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.”

”A thankful person is thankful under all circumstances. A complaining soul complains even if he lives in paradise»

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” — Oprah Winfrey
“In everything give thanks. An attitude of gratitude is most salutary, and bespeaks the realization that we are now in heaven.” — Ernest Holmes

Here are two quotes from two great sages that help bring perspective to all of our struggles..
“Let the waters settle
you will see stars and moon
mirrored in your Being.”
Here’s another favorite …
Emptiness here is the same as Emptiness there.
The space behind your mind is the same as the space behind mine.
What sees out my eyes, sees out yours.
Walk outside, breath the air
Walk outside and remember.
The Tao is an empty vessel; it is used, but never filled.
Blessings and Love to All
