Last evening, Oprah and her co-teachers–Iyanla Vanzant, Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, Bishop Jakes–discussed the art of gratitude. Oprah shared her gratitude ritual with us. After meeting Sarah Van Ban Breathnach, author of Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy, Oprah started keeping a daily gratitude journal. Each day, she writes down at least five things for which she is grateful. She strongly believes that gratitude can change our consciousness. If we are grateful for what we have, we will have more.
Insights from the Spiritual Mod Squad…
Your life will stop at different places. Be grateful for each step along the way and pay attention to how you respond.
When you are conscious of the energy you bring to the room, your presence is enough.
The sinner and the saint are merely exchanging notes. The saint has a past and the sinner has a future.
The only true belief you need to have is in your infinite potential.
Our biggest addiction is problems…We can reduce our life to a description that makes other people feel sorry for us. Or we can expand our life to a dimension that connects and gives to others.
Flood yourself with positive experiences…that changes your biochemistry.
It is not your outer vision, but your inner vision that makes you special.
Wherever there is appreciation, there will be duplication.
