Entitlement is the nemesis of inner peace. It is an insatiable beast… Entitlement convinces you that the world owes you a debt, and multiple gifts are barely enough payback for what you deserve.
Gratitude is the anti-venom that neutralizes entitlement’s poison. Gratitude is the opposite of entitlement. Gratitude begins with acceptance of what arises exactly as it is, rather than as you wish they were or expect them to be. Gratitude is not about benefits or usefulness or outcomes. You are thankful that things are just as they are — diverse, surprising, authentic and real. Gratitude is the beauty to entitlement’s beast.
