Gratefulness is a surprisingly powerful practice for cultivating inner peace. Here’s a short video of a conversation about it between two respected teachers of the inner life.
As much as I admire these fellows for their clarity, passion, and eloquence, I always take their ideas into my mind and heart and see how they fit for me. I suggest each of us do the same. Spiritual teachers are merely people, as fallible as you and me.
So enjoy this chat between Br.David Steindl-Rast and Jack Kornfield representing Christian and Buddhist spirituality respectively. Hopefully, some of their words will give you some good food for thought and contemplation.
Take these ideas, try them out, and accept, reject or modify as needed.
