... has the capacity to transform the ways in which we experience life at the deepest and most profound levels. As we pay attention to that for which we are grateful we discover more and more ways in which our gratitude is called forth. As it becomes the default setting for our perception of life it frees us to see beauty and grace in every moment. Indeed, we begin to discover that we are swimming in a sea of wonder.

This way of being in the world even lays the foundation for facing life’s most challenging and painful experiences in such a way that healing and wholeness can emerge. In the words of Brother David Steindl-Rast, “It is not happiness that makes us grateful. It is gratitude that makes us happy.”

As with any spiritual practice, it requires practice. It is not always easy. And the more we make it our practice, the fuller and deeper and richer our experience of life becomes. All that is required to begin is the intention to pay attention. This moment is the perfect time to begin.
