Meister Eckhart once said the most important prayer in the world is just two words: Thank You.
Eckhart is one of our favorite spiritual icons, and we have both made it a point to share our gratefulness throughout the day by saying, “Thank you!” to each other many times a day. It is neither perfunctory, nor an automatic reply; it can always be a sincere and renewed expression of our commitment to living a life in gratitude.
We find it’s difficult, if not impossible, to be upset or stressed about anything when we are experiencing gratitude. Sometimes the simple things are the most powerful!
