This is great, Steve. I've struggled with the whole gratitude thing for ages. Never feeling good about it - or satisfied with the common advice about its importance and how to practice being grateful. Whenever I'd hear people talk about it or post about it it always felt sterile and dry. Repetitive, without feeling. Honestly, it worked my nerves.
Just recently I've been experiencing clues about how to see/work with gratitude more effectively. But your blog post really expands upon it in a direction I've been wanting to go. How'd you get so smart, Mr?
Rooting it in something permanent, lasting, like existence...So now I can be easily grateful for my awareness-of-being since that is unconditional existence. I feel an energy shift when Imagining this! Really, this is a quantum leap for me. Who knows where it could go from here. But already this is a huge paradigm shift. No more lip service, thank God - but rather there is substance behind the concept now. There is meaning.
A thousand thanks for helping me to navigate a clearer path on this subject.
