“In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.”
—Brother David Steindl-Rast
One thing I needed to learn, when I decided to find a new way to look at love, was a completely different attitude towards gratefulness.
I had wrongly assumed that gratefulness required a religious perspective, therefore I did not feel grateful.
It seems I needed to lose a bit of my illusion of control over my life through divorce and job loss, to lose my sense of entitlement and arrogance. Humility was a great place to start from in my new search for self-acceptance and love.
Viewing this short video over and over again changed my mind! I am so grateful for this lovely, insightful video featuring Brother David, a highly-respected Benedictine monk, author and spiritual leader. This video is a BLESSING to all of those with “eyes to see and ears to hear.”
Look, listen and let it flow through you. Be inspired by this powerful message on grateful living, then go visit: http://kck.st/Kzo5Ih and contribute to the effort to create a feature-length version of this film, one which will spread gratefulness worldwide.
