What a different world we would be living in if we all just loved one another. If we did this one simple thing, what would the headlines on the news look like? How would our politicians behave? And what impact would this have on our planet?
Open your heart to true Thanksgiving this holiday season. Do not focus so much on the material blessings, but the Great and Divine Spirit that is the source of all those blessings. Many people on the Earth plane take for granted that it is a miracle and a blessing to have the gift of life at all. And many more are blind to the spiritual potential that lies before every soul. Life continues after the passing of the physical body and there is so much more to come for each and everyone of you. Ponder these things, and be grateful for the gift that is eternity. Be grateful that love is the key that opens the door to Eternity. And love is not something that you must work or toil to obtain, you just simply need to open your heart to it. When you bring these things to mind and are truly grateful for those treaures that physical money cannot buy; it will open up within you a level of Thanksgiving that is beyond most human`s comprehension. And it will be an incredible blessing for you that will make you see life from a higher and more wonderful perspective. Then your soul will radiate with the light of pure gratitude... This is being truly thankful.
It is a sad fact of our world, that many people suffer or become stuck in their lives because of something someone said or did in their past. There are individuals who are middle-aged and beyond who are still stuck in a certain time period in their lives, living and suffering over something that happened when they were very young. We must come to realize, that no one or no thing controls us or defines us. It doesn't matter what our parents said to us. It doesn't matter what our teachers or friends said or believe about us, it doesn't matter how religion judges us in light of its doctrines and dogmas. You know who you are, you know who you've always wanted to be. There is not a single person in this world who has the power or the right to tell you who you are as an individual. It may be a fact that others have built a prison around you with their hurtful words, actions and judgments. But only you hold the key to let yourself out of that prison. You can realize, that perhaps, the people around you have never really known who you truly are in your heart. So walk away from those preconceived notions of others. Open the prison door and let yourself find freedom and peace. You don't have to stay shackled to the past or live your life according to its injuries. You have the right to change and grow beyond all of that.
We often worry about so many things, but what are these worries? They are not tangible things, they are merely thoughts in the mind. Thoughts are like smoke and illusions that can be changed by an act of the will. Burdens evaporate when we realize that there was no burden to begin with. The universal laws of peace and love are all that is truly real.
Politics will never bring peace to our world. Nor will they ever provide a sense of calm and serenity in the lives of the people. The only way that this can be done, is if politicians listen to the call of their own souls and become real and honest people. Compassion, love for others and the desire to do the absolute right thing are the only things that can make a positive change. The world needs to understand this. For it is said, that there is no such thing as an honest politician. And by and large, this is true. But it doesn't have to be true, because all people are capable of change and human decency. We need to stop putting so much energy and faith in politics and politicians; and start putting our faith in the spiritual attributes they can make the politicians better people.
People will tell you how to think, how to act and even how to plan out your life's path. Organizations will tell you how to have faith, how to pray and how to connect with the divine. Politicians and politically minded people will tell you how to vote and who to vote for. There are a plethora of voices in this world that will tell you how to do an innumerable amount of things. But the greatest voice that you can follow, is that of your own intuition. That still small voice within is wiser than all of the popular opinions in the world around you. Learn to listen to this voice, learn to trust it because it is your soul communicating with you.
