TEXT: Gratitude is both a posture and a responsive feeling. As a posture, which is to say a way of facing and greeting the world without a "reason" to be grateful, it sets the stage for a more bountiful life. As a responsive feeing, it further radiates good into the world. I see it as a continuous loop. But the start of the loop is always the posture. To wait for the responsive feeling is where disappointment lies. You are attempting to withdraw from an empty account.
