Buddha's Guide to Gratitude

By

Find Happiness in Gratitude

Discover more about one of the four keys to the Gate of Heaven: As it turns out, Buddha had quite a lot to say on the subject of gratitude, including citing it as one of the four keys to the Gate of Heaven. Why is this? Perhaps the sheer simplicity of gratefulness is a large part of this, as it is available to all of us at any time. Even in the midst of over-busyness, stress, and chaos, we can find plenty to be glad about, and The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude will start your journey towards Zen and gratefulness.

Count your blessings: According to Buddha, “You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy.” Being thankful is one of the most powerful tools we humans have to attain peace of mind and a measure of happiness. Take time to stop each day and count your blessings. This can be done with a prayer or mindfulness mediation, whichever works for you. This lovely, uncomplicated approach featured in The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude may well be life-changing.

Increase your happiness: Studies show—and experts counsel—that gratitude is a key component of our own happiness. People who are grateful about events and experiences from the past, who celebrate the triumphs instead of focusing on the losses or disappointments, tend to be more satisfied in the present. Follow the advice of Buddhist leader Thich Nhat Hanh, “With all I have experienced in my own life, the power of gratitude stands above everything else. In your mindfulness practice, use gratitude until it becomes your way of life.” The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude will show you the way.

Shift your thinking: Gratitude moves us to do all kinds of things inspired by joy. Gratitude can help us transform our fears into courage, our anger into forgiveness, our isolation into belonging, and another’s pain into healing. Saying “Thank you” every day will create feelings of love, compassion, and hope. But the fact is, the art of living—for that is what we speak about when we speak of gratitude—isn’t something that comes naturally to most people. Most of us need to work intentionally to increase the intensity, duration, and frequency of positive, grateful feelings—a daunting challenge, indeed. But fear not; The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude is here to help!

Inside The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude, we have provided you with positive thinking “power tools” that will help you build a more grateful life, including:

  • mindful meditations
  • hands-on exercises
  • profound practices
  • inspiring quotations
  • space for notetaking and journaling
  • thought-provoking questions

Change your life by changing your prayer: Author Becca Anderson credits her recovery from a serious illness to the power of daily prayer.

By carefully and consciously choosing affirming thoughts and deliberately looking for blessings at every opportunity, you will literally create a new life for yourself.

The Woman’s Book of Prayer will help you:

Plan Be!

The affirmations, quotes and ideas in this book are a set of tools for you to use in your self-development. They are for “inner work.” And, you know what they say about happiness, that it’s an “inside job,” which is 100% true. These suggestions vary widely from spiritual aspirations to very simple, straightforward and practical ideas. Much has to do with adjusting your attitude. Depending on the day, it might be a slight adjustment or a major overhaul but the more you practice daily affirmations, the fewer adjustments you’ll need. One day, you will realize you have mastered the art of “thinking happy” and are looking at the bright side of life, every day. Incorporating this as a daily practice will build “mental muscle” and help you achieve the all-important optimistic way of thinking. I very much like the idea of idea of undertaking the inner work of self-development and working your way to a better you. I am also a strong advocate for believing in yourself and loving yourself more each and every day. These are habits that can easily be reinforced by practices such as journaling, creating your own affirmations and talking to yourself in the positive. Like an engine driving you toward greater things, self belief brings you closers to your life’s purpose, your personal mission and will absolutely make you a happier camper. Daily affirmations help build the optimistic mindset. So, try it. Easy as pie and just as sweet.
