Out of chaos, something quiet and still, pure and deep

There was something formed out of chaos, that was born before Heaven and Earth. Quiet and still! Pure and Deep! -- Tao Te Ching, Robert G. Henricks translation. (From Gratefulness.org: "Word for the Day")

I heard once that gratefulness is the highest of prayer forms. That stuck with me. It's one of the reasons I find inspiration at gratefulness.org and subscribe to its "Word for the Day."

Gratefulness.org describes its mission as follows: "A Network for Grateful Living (ANG*L) provides education and support for the practice of grateful living as a global ethic, based on the teachings of Br. David Steindl-Rast and colleagues."
