Eckhart Tolle about gratitude in the teaching: The Enjoyment of Being

“You know there  is a lot of talk (and this is wonderful) these days in spiritual teachings about gratitude. And usually people think gratitude means, that you have to say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Or they have to say “I’m so grateful for this. And I’m also grateful for that and grateful for that.” That is fine to do, for the reorientation of your mind. It’s fine, it’s a temporary  stage. I wouldn’t get stuck there for you don’t want to say for the next 20 years thank you, thank you. You don’t need it. There is a deeper gratitude. That is to acknowledge the beingness  and appreciate the beingness without needing any words. And that is how you can live in continuous gratitude without calling it gratitude anymore.”
