Tonight, (well, it’s “officially” Thanksgiving Day here in the Eastern U.S.), there are a few simple thoughts that are on my mind. Call it a prayer if you like…that seems to fit.
We, ALL of us, are most highly blessed to be here. On THIS world, it is only through the gift of being human that we have the glorious opportunity to experience God. Yes, there is sickness, and disease, confusion, and emotional suffering that plague the physical existence of many, but even those miseries, as challenging as they may be, are part of the Divine “conspiracy” to bring us into union with that which is ALL. It is within the experiences that are presented to each of us on this human path that we will find the Truth. And within that Truth is the ultimate peace and freedom that we all seek. We cannot escape what God has set upon the table before us…it will return again and again until we have embraced it and discovered the hidden gifts; then we will “evolve” into something greater. For this opportunity, I am supremely grateful, scars and all.
May each of you be blessed beyond measure this day, and every day that follows. May each of you discover the Truth that God, (by whatever name you prefer), has arranged for you. And may we, as a race, completely lose our ability to justify killing, belittling, and subjugating our fellow-man, (including OURSELVES). May there be peace, both within, and in our physical world, to carry us into the great blessing that is life.
Many Blessings To All…
