So during this time of Collective ThanksGiving I invite you to join me in simply observing this tendency to choose what to be thankful for & instead attend to the cultivation of Gratitude itself. In this process I realized that even the most distilled prayer of thanks - just being thankful for my life itself - seemed to oppose that which does not have material form. And in the wake of this realization I began to feel the energy of Life that permeates All That Is, & this energy filled & surrounded "me" & radiated thru this personal embodiment.
I am fond of saying "Thanks Be" rather than "Thank You" for this very same reason. For it lessens the division between the thanker & the thanked. So Giving & Receiving Thanks begin to weave together & become indistinguishable in the flow of the energy of Life. In the end it's all just playing with words......what really matters most is simply inviting this feeling of Gratitude to permeate Life & all that manifests within it.
Thanks BE ♡ Jeanette
