“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough” (Meister Eckhart).
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend. If you are in the US, you may be gathering with friends and family to celebrate Thanksgiving this weekend. It is a wonderful time of year to collectively give thanks for all the good and abundance in our lives. What if we practiced thankful living every day?
Master teacher Joe Vitale recognized the importance of gratitude to our lives in his book The Secret Prayer by that expressing gratitude is the first step to creating what you want in life. It is the first of three steps to what Vitale calls The Secret Prayer.
Jack Canfield lists gratitude a factor in success in his book The Success Principles. It is the spirit of gratitude that is essential to creating more of what is good and successful in life.
The lead quote by Meister Eckhart expresses the importance of gratitude in our lives. It is this thankful living that helps us to seek more good, and it is that action that helps us to recognize more good, and thus more good is found, and the cycle continues.
So even if you don’t have lots of friends and family around this Thanksgiving weekend (here in the US), give thanks for what you do have, no matter how big or small. It will bring to you more to be grateful for in this present moment. Integrate this into your daily routine and your act of thankful living will give you something to be grateful for on a continuous basis.
