A Thanksgiving message

As Brother David Steindl-Rast says, whether one is religious or secular, it’s hard to argue against gratefulness.

How much gratefulness we feel has little to do with whether life seems abundant or filled with hardship. On the contrary, it hinges on the degree to which we are prey to the delusion that we are self-made, or instead have discovered that life is a process in which we endlessly stumble into the unknown.

Let’s never forget what a wondrous planet we live on — a place where staggering beauty can suddenly sweep up from the horizon.

    Inspiring, too bad that all the war mongers can’t take the time out to reflect of the wondrous beauty that they are destroying.

    ‘god is everything we
    can see and can’t see

    it has existed from
    the beginning of time

    and will continue
    till time ends

    there is nothing
    god does not contain

    nor does anything
    exist outside of it

    it’s not a question
    of learning something

    but one of remembrance,
    actually forgetting things

    the falsehoods we’ve
    come to believe

    we are not separate
    we are pure awareness

    presumably we are all in bodies
    and these words are tools

    to describe an understanding
    it’s not that we don’t know

    who we are – we just forgot
    all of this – is to remind us’
