If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough. Meister Eckhart
Can you imagine? The power of gratitude is so overwhelming that it is all we need to feel…

Gratitude is a Way of Life
Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. Denis Waitley
Gratitude is not a passing thought. It is an attitude, a mindset, an emotion, a means of seeing, a way of being.
Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. John Milton
The Gratitude Challenge
Take time this week to watch the following films. They are so powerful, so beautiful and deeply moving that I could only watch about a half an hour at a time.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent years traveling the world filming nature and interviewing over 2,000 people. The result, the film called HUMAN, is best described by the synopsis on their site…
“HUMAN is a collection of stories and images of our world, offering an immersion to the core of what it means to be human. Through these stories full of love and happiness, as well as hatred and violence, HUMAN brings us face to face with the Other, making us reflect on our lives. …these poignant encounters share a rare sincerity and underline who we are – our darker side, but also what is most noble in us, and what is universal. Our Earth is shown at its most sublime through never-before-seen aerial images.”
I challenge you to watch these films and not
- be overwhelmingly grateful for your life;
- feel one with all humanity;
- say a prayer for our world and all who dwell within it.
Gratitude is an energy that pours forth from us. Nurture it with contemplation, kindness, appreciation, gentleness and love. Your very presence will then be a healing blessing to all.
