“It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.” -Eckhart Tolle
Another step that awakens your spirit through adversity is gratitude
The word “gratitude” comes from the root word gratus(Latin), which means pleasing. One interpretation of gratitude might be that when we are pleased with something or someone, we are grateful. If we look deeper within ourselves, we also might see that when we are feeling grateful, we are pleased with the world around us.
Gratitude reminds us to find our happiness in everything — in exceptional things, in mundane things, in good things, in so-so things and even in terrible things.
