I sit and think about the meaning of thanksgiving from a spiritual aspect, instead of a point of view as American holiday..i break apart the words inside my mind and deeply ponder and wonder about the true intentions behind its meaning of these two beautiful words that are meshed together to form what is called the “holiday” thanksgiving..
I think about what I am thankful for and the ultimate divine intentions that has been set before me which I perceive through the notion of thanks as being grateful for..i thank my angels and my spiritual creator daily for ALL that I have, along with all that surrounds me, for I wouldn’t want another humans problems and am only equipped through experience to navigate mine own..for this profound understanding alone I am thankful..
I am so utterly thankful for my children and the tribe of people who surround my heart and spirit nourishing me while holding me close to their heart.. I feel their love and presence of this human beloved act of giving to me something and being able to receive it in the most thankful appreciative way..i hope they feel the gratitude i have in return and feel the love i hold dearly and cherish for each of them in return..
i was thinking the other night while saying my prayers before bed as I was trying to settle my mind, what does love really feel like right now at this specific moment.. the only thought that came to my mind was the thankful feeling of my husband holding me in his arms and feeling all his compassion kindness and love flow through me in the most subtle way without him ever realizing what he was giving to me at that moment..that in itself is the true artful expression to me of being thanks and giving all at the same time..
the second part of the word can be challenging at times giving apart of ourselves selflessly to others without the desire for a return response..i think about what i put out there into the world generously through my heart and spirit in a giving way and where i can also work on the compassion and kindness when i lack at the department of giving freely since i am only human..at times it annoying and disruptive but to put someone in front of yourself is the true art of what giving actually means i think..
i think about what i have given to myself and those that i love and hope i am leaving a positive lasting legacy in their lives enough to be proud of me..i think about the effects of my giving and hope it has only made their world happier and brighter with long lasting effects even if sometimes it happens to be clouded by a temporary judgment because again we are all only human..
so today i leave you all a piece of thanks and giving for this unique moment that finds you reading this journal entry..i wish you an abundance of spirited hope and renewal peace and harmony in the seams of your life lifting you up a bit higher than where you were before you read this blog..i wish for you an array of eternal sunshine in your heart filtered through love and compassion, kindness and caring for those around you and the strangers that you face daily in this vast beautiful land we call home..
may the universe feel the gratitude and thankfulness that you have within your heart and continue to nourish you enough that allows you to continue give outward of yourself and inward to yourself in the most beautiful fulfilling way..peace love faith hope
