Let Go of Scarcity and Fear by Cultivating Joy and Gratitude

In this video, we learn to let go of scarcity and fear by cultivating joy and gratitude.

It is another segment from Super Soul Sunday in which Oprah Winfrey interviews Dr. .

Dr. Brown says, “When we lose our tolerance to be vulnerable, joy becomes foreboding, and so what we do in moments of joyfulness, is we try to beat vulnerability to the punch.”

Watch this inspiring Super Soul Sunday video to discover how being truly appreciative of all the things in your life. Remember, “To desire what you don’t have is to waste what you do have!”

Being grateful for all the people presently in your life is a profound way of allowing yourself to experience real joy without dreading that it could be taken from you in a split second.

In recent articles, we have learned that sympathetic joy is one of the four immeasurable minds. When we cultivate joy, we also cultivate loving kindness and compassion and develop equanimity.

Also, we have seen many articles about gratitude. See, for example, Gratitude as a Daily Practice.

I am totally convinced that if you take on a daily practice to let go of scarcity and fear by cultivating joy and gratitude, you will be a much happier person. Trust me, I know from personal experience. When will you begin?
