Psychology Has It Backwards

Episode 104: Gratitude

Gratitude is a deep and beautiful feeling filled with love and appreciation for life itself.  We all learn as we grow up to be grateful for people and things, to say thank you for presents, to express thanks for our blessings on special occasions, to link our gratitude to special things and people and places.  But true gratitude is a profoundly spiritual connection to the joy of just being.  In the words of Sydney Banks, “Gratitude and satisfaction have wonderful effects on our souls.  They open our minds, clearing the way for wisdom and contentment to enter.  Once you become grateful, the prison bars of your mind will fall away.  Peace of mind and contentment will be yours.” (The Missing Link, p. 131)
