Find Happiness in GratitudeThe four keys to the Gate of Heaven: As it turns out, Buddha had quite a lot to say on the subject of gratitude, including citing it as one of the four keys to the Gate of Heaven. Why is this? Perhaps the sheer simplicity of gratefulness is a key, as it is available to all of us at any time. Even in the midst of over-busyness, stress, and chaos, we can find plenty to be glad about, and The Buddha's Guide to Gratitude will start your journey towards Zen and gratefulness. Count your blessings: According to Buddha, You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy. Being thankful is one of the most powerful tools we humans have to attain peace of mind and happiness. Take time each day and count your blessings. This can be done with a prayer or mindfulness mediation, whichever works for you. This lovely, uncomplicated approach featured in The Buddha's Guide to Gratitude could be life-changing. Increase your happiness: Studies show and experts counsel that gratitude is a key component of our happiness. People who are grateful about events and experiences from the past, who celebrate triumphs instead of focusing on losses or disappointments, tend to be more satisfied. Gratitude can help us transform our fears into courage, our anger into forgiveness, our isolation into belonging, and another's pain into healing. Follow the advice of Buddhist leader Thich Nhat Hanh, With all I have experienced in my own life, the power of gratitude stands above everything else. In your mindfulness practice, use gratitude until it becomes your way of life. The Buddha's Guide to Gratitude will show you the way. Inside The Buddha's Guide to Gratitude, we have provided you with positive thinking power tools that will help you build a more grateful life, including: Mindful meditations Hands-on exercises Profound practices Inspiring quotations Space for notetaking and journaling Thought-provoking questions
