This is more than a call for a new way to look at Thanksgiving. This is a call to look at Thanksgiving NOT just as something we do, but something our lives are. Something we are ‘being’ – perpetually. A ‘state,’ a state of Thanksgiving. Consider this and contrast the difference between just being grateful for something, or things, or persons or places or conditions or circumstances. This power of being what thanksgiving ‘IS’ is transformative in so many ways.
This is expressing extraordinary gratitude and it is a success magnet!
Consider this, right here and now… How would you ‘BE’ if you were ‘BEING’ what thanksgiving is? To be rooted and grounded in gratitude as a foundation for every thought, every word you speak to others and to yourself and in every action you take?
This is a powerful practice and it grants you entry into a higher state of consciousness, a state of awareness that seeks, searches and recognizes all there is to be grateful for rather than taking ego’s dominant lead and thinking astray and letting thoughts just wander aimlessly.
I encourage you to adopt this practice. How would your thinking change if you ran your thoughts through the filter of gratitude? Ask: Does this thought I’m thinking hold some form of appreciation within itself, either for something within me, outside of me, for your Source? For God? Just stopping long enough to consider a gratitude filter is something to be thankful for! You’re acknowledging and appreciating and looking for the Divine Givingness in everything! Stay the course, it’s there.
Even in hardships, in our times of sorrow and despair, and in the times when anxiety creeps in and adversity seems to be a constant companion, there is the ever-present Divine Givingness of God. It’s called grace and it’s always on, always flowing and grace is always something to be grateful for.
And let’s not forget about thanksgiving in advance for the good that always comes out of the difficult times but that we just can’t see from the bottom of the deep, dark pit where we may be choosing to linger for a while. Thanksgiving always pulls us up. We can’t seem to dwell on negative conditions, predicaments and situations when we’re giving thanks. Do this and before long the Light will carry you through, lifting you up.
And that’s just in our thoughts, what about our words? How would we speak if all of our words were fragrant with appreciation and gratitude? Try this the next time you catch yourself drifting to the seat of judgment whether it be inner dialogue or within a conversation with another divine child of God. Can you find the Godness to be thankful for? Can your words be sprinkled with appreciation, praise and blessings? This is something we can all begin right now.
And finally in our actions. How does being what thanksgiving is, act?
Again I invite you to consider this, to answer this for yourself. To reflect upon how your actions might change, evolve and transform your life as you journey on your path being rooted and grounded in thanksgiving.
To me, I see everything as a miracle in my world as I take each step planting myself firmly on the soil of gratitude. My recognition of the divine in everything is the deliciousness of life. Every person, place and thing becomes alive with the essence of the divine and therefore a thing of beauty to be savored. My attitude is pleasing to everyone around me AND to my soul. The inner peace I feel is as if I Am holding hands with tranquility and my life is not only good, my life is God.
Thanksgiving. Yep, it does all that….and more.
Listen in NOW and begin at once, being what thanksgiving is!
