Dorotheus of Gaza

"Do not wish for everything to be done according to your determination, but wish that it is how it should be, and in this way you will attain peace with everyone. And believe that everything that happens to us, even the most insignificant, occurs through God's Providence. Then you will be able to endure everything that comes upon you without irritation."

"A great means to preserve continual peace and tranquility of the soul is to receive everything from the hands of God, both great and small, and in whatever way it comes."

This 6th century monk was on to Gift-Gratitude-God 1500 years before I was born. Here is an example of the baraka in action, both then and now.
