I have found that an active practice of Gratitude is one of the most healing spiritual practices there is! I use it every day to shift my mind and become more receptive to the good in life. I’ve noticed that many people who are really suffering don’t have a gratitude practice.
In A Course in Miracles, there are so many references to the power of gratitude. Again and again, we’re told that being grateful to our brother opens our mind to our salvation from pain and suffering. And yet, so often, we still are more inclined to criticize and complain than to praise and give thanks for our fellow travelers on this planet.
Here’s a wonderful passage from ACIM that’s so clear about the power of gratitude:
“Your gratitude to your brother is the only gift I want. I will bring it to God for you, knowing that to know your brother is to know God. If you are grateful to your brother, you are grateful to God for what He created. Through your gratitude you come to know your brother, and one moment of real recognition makes everyone your brother because each of them is of your Father.” T-4.VI.7.
