Gratitude as a spiritual practice.
Since tomorrow is “celebrated” as Thanksgiving Day by so many, are you surprised to see me remind us that gratitude and thankfulness is often included in a list of spiritual practices? How many emails have arrived in your inbox this week mentioning thankfulness? If yours is anything like mine, a lot! Is that enough to remind you to practice gratitude? Is that enough to make you grateful?
How do you practice gratitude? Meister Eckhart is reported to have written, “If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘Thank You,’ that would suffice.”
How to you pray “Thank you” tomorrow? Today? Everyday?
Why don’t you take one minute right now and pray, “Thank you.”
