Thursday Satsang: “With Gratitude” by Daniel Hertz on February 23, 2017
Gratitude is a game changer. To paraphrase the theme song from the beloved Mary Tyler Moore show, “It can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.” People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they’re thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, and express more compassion and kindness. It is the key to a more joyful approach to your meditation practice. Daniel wrote an essay entitled “With Gratitude” that was published in both his second book and in the AHYMSIN Newsletter at this link: http://www.ahymsin.org/docs2/
1. 10 reasons to practice gratitude
2. 7 ways to cultivate gratitude
