The smallest surprise, received gratefully, yields a harvest of delight.

Br. David Steindl-Rast

Developing a gratefulness practice opens us to the profound and sacred but also to things light, joyful, and humorous. In this short series of outtakes, we get to see Brother David trying to record a video that invites people to the experience of Grateful Living. The ease with which he laughs at his own “mistakes” when making the recording reminds us to be lighthearted when practicing anything. As you develop or deepen your gratefulness practice, make space for it to not go perfectly, and allow yourself to delight in that!
