The Great Way Isn't All That Difficult...

...it just means being grateful.

Gratitude for what is, and for exactly what is, is the surest sign of having gotten beyond picking and choosing.

Gratitude for what is, and for exactly what is, is the surest sign of being beyond preferences, likes and dislikes.

The expression of gratitude puts us in our proper place: on the receiving end, on the lower end, on the receptive end.   I know I've found people I can respect when I consistently hear words of thanks from their mouths.  I know I've found people I cannot respect when I consistently hear whining and complaining from their mouths.

It really is that simple.
