Gratitude - learning how to come from love

Part 1 - Listen from love

What is the unique opportunity this moment wishes to give me? Stop, listen from love, because love knows what to do.

Part 2 - How do we practice the 'giving' part of 'thanks'?

“Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received-only what you have given: a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage.”
—  Francis of Assisi

Part 3

Like Jacob in his struggle with the Man in Genesis 32:22-32, we may need to struggle for our blessings.

Daily Inspiration

"You cannot be spiritually reborn without some knowledge of the new or spiritual life, of the true things that you ought to believe and the good things that you ought to do. You cannot learn these things on your own, because on your own you can comprehend things only through your physical senses. Your physical senses give you information about the material world and yourself, not about heaven and God. Spiritual knowledge comes only from revelation."

New Jerusalem and Its Heavenly Doctrine 177
