I recently enjoyed a wonderful discourse on gratitude, happiness and peace of mind. It helped me have a much better perspective and I wanted to always be able to refer back to the points brought out, so I’m posting them here, and I hope you will enjoy them too.
Happiness is not dependent on things, circumstances, or people. True happiness isn’t an end goal, but a by-product. A by-product of gratitude. Happiness always follows gratitude.
Gratitude doesn’t cure suffering, but it has the power to heal. It doesn’t erase despair, but has the power to radiate hope. Gratitude nullifies negativity.
Gratitude is more than just a feeling, it’s a mindset, disposition, and a choice; we can make a conscious decision to see blessings instead of curses.
Gratitude helps us not just feel good, but DO good. A grateful spirit will make you more loving, forgiving, thankful, thoughtful. Thankfulness is the soil in which joy thrives.
What if you’re consumed by despair? What is there to be grateful or thankful for? What about the abundance and diversity of life?! No two sunrises and no two sunsets have ever been or will ever be exactly alike. Connecting with creation helps to discharge anxiety.
We are never more than one grateful thought away from increased peace of mind and greater peace of heart . .
