For most people in the U.S., today is Thanksgiving… where friends and family gather ’round the table, share some good food and good times.
in addition to the things that most are thankful for, there’s also the opportunity to be thankful for the “All” by recognizing the totality gratitude.
It’s very easy to be thankful for the things we consider “blessings.”
We might say, “I’m thankful for my family, food, god, etc.”
However true gratitude encompasses the all. Meaning: being grateful for everything.
Metaphysically, to be thankful for one thing is the equivalent of being thankful for everything…because everything is connected – everything is one. Unfortunately most don’t see it that way…they pick and choose.
So, instead of (consciously) singling out things and only being thankful for the blessings, be thankful for the all.
Without these other things, we would not have anything to be thankful for.
Find it within yourself to be thankful for the boss who fired you, so that you could start your own business.
Be thankful for meeting your ex-wife in order to have the children that you had, or even the learning experience you shared.
Be thankful for the economy for creating opportunity when some opportunities are not seen
Be thankful for the all and you’ll experience the true meaning of Thanksgiving.
Namaste and thank you!
