Cultivating an attitude of gratitude

Do you want to be happy?  David Steindl-Rask, a Benedictine lay brother suggests we cultivate a sense of gratefulness.  As you can learn from his TED video, David Steindl-Rask: Want to be happy? Be grateful", to live gratefully, we must stop, look and go.

We must value the gifts and blessings provided by living in the present moment.... the only time in which we have to live.

Brother Steindl-Rask believes that when we have an attitude of gratitude we will be less war-like and fearful.  Instead of living with a sense of scarcity we will have a spirit of abundance.

What's not to like about that?
