“Gratitude is love with a direction.”
a response Rupert Spira offered a retreatant this morning, 10-25-2011
Gratitude subtly suggests an other–an offering toward, and hence an apparent separate self as well–there cannot be one without the other. Rupert added that there is no problem here–gratitude is already doing its dissolving work; simply allow it in its fullness. It will dissolve the sense of separateness.
