The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking where you’re going, and above all, being grateful.

  1. I don't agree. I think that people are grateful for what meets their ideals. If their experience does not meet their expectations. Then they will not be grateful. So 'Expectation' is the battle ground'. So I would suggest that we have no expectation of anything. And then seek to become the type of person that God would like to spend eternity with.
