Gratitude moves our mind’s attention towards the positive and beneficial things in our lives… Things that support us, keep us going and growing, giving us strength, courage, access to resources, and more. Expression of gratitude can be used as a mindfulness practice to entrain our mind to turn towards what is working.
All people can be prosperous only when the most vulnerable among us are made safe and made whole. We are grateful for this solemn and sacred moment for the opportunity to be learning through awkwardness and discomfort to become a better people, to learn to meet each person with mindfulness and spaciousness, without bias and assumptions. We are grateful for this opportunity to cultivate the spiritual discipline of non-violence in this way.
