Praise and Gratitude

Praise and gratitude go hand-in-hand.  Both are a natural response to our recognition that, as the old saying goes, “God is God.  You are not.”  These days that’s almost counter-cultural!  But the deep humility that arises from our understanding of the interdependence of all life — including ourselves — is truly the beginning of wisdom.  Praise is gratitude writ large, out loud.
