Gratitude: Parent of all the virtues

Gratitude. Cicero called it “… not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” Every major religion and philosophy recognizes its importance. Modern science is beginning to credit it with substantial benefits to our well-being, both psychological and physical. It plays a great role in effective use of the Law of Attraction. It isn’t a hard concept to grasp. So why does it seem to be in such short supply these days?

This week we’re going to explore gratitude from several different angles. We’ll take a look at it from the point of view of the ancients. What they had to say about it, and what value they placed on it.

We’ll learn how, when they have such major differences in so many other areas,  gratitude is a common element of almost every major religion on the planet.

We’ll look at the way modern scientists are beginning to view gratitude. Recent studies have some impressive things to say, and we’ll see how a simple shift in a person’s perspective can have dramatic results.

We’ll also see how gratitude can help you improve your life, and learn about some simple yet effective exercises that can help you make gratitude a part of your daily routine.

Please join me tomorrow as we begin this study of gratitude, so that you can begin to reap the benefits of the parent of all the virtues.
