Are You Thankful This Thanksgiving?

Gratitude holiday

Have you stopped to think about it?
What DO you have to be thankful for?

Having the Gratitude Attitude
Yes, it might feel great to win the lottery. Money, houses, travel – these are wonderful, but not enough by themselves. You need the right frame of mind to fully enjoy life. You need the attitude of gratitude.

Be Grateful
Life is better when you feel blessed, when you can look around and say “Thank you, Creator.” Religious or not, when you see life as a wonderful gift, your experience is a richer one than any amount of money can provide. Imagine going through life like you’re a child, and every morning is Christmas.

Be thankful that you are able to breathe on your own without the use of the machine. Be thankful that you can get out of bed without assistance. Be thankful that you can walk, talk, and see. There’s so much to be grateful for every day of your life, it’s just changing your attitude.

It’s tempting to think gratitude comes from having what you want. You see yourself giving thanks if you had money, a loving family, and maybe a house on the beach. Still, you know there are ungrateful, unhappy people with these things, and poor people full of gratitude for what little they have. Where does this feeling come from?

Creating Gratitude
Gratitude arises from how you look at things. It is the natural feeling that comes from truly appreciating the people and things in your life. It is also something you can learn.

You’re never too old to start learning how to be grateful.

First, you have to stop and smell the roses. You can’t be thankful for something you don’t notice or enjoy. Roses really do smell great, by the way.

Then, you need to make this appreciative approach to roses and life a habit. There’s no need to ignore the ugliness in the world, but you have to habitually see the beautiful things.

Start writing down every positive thing that happens to you, and all the things you like. I recommend buying a journal just for writing about gratitude. Do this until you start automatically seeing the good things in life. If you’ve ever bought a white car, and started seeing white cars all over, you know how awareness can alter your perception of reality.

To see wonderful things all over, train yourself to look for them.

When you are in the habit of “counting your blessings,” gratitude, and a much richer experience of life is the natural result. The Great Spirit Honors you when you count your blessings. You will find you are receiving more out of life then you ever did before once you develop a gratitude attitude.

I am grateful that you took the time to read this message.

Many Blessings,

What Is The Difference Between Necessity And Want?

What Is The Difference Between Necessity And Want? Click Picture For Article

People have become so disconnected with the truth that they do not often understand what the difference is between necessity and want.

According to the dictionary a necessity is:

  1. Something necessary or indispensable: food, shelter, and other necessities of life.
  2. The fact of being necessary or indispensable; indispensability: the necessity of adequate housing.

According to the dictionary a desire is:

  1. To wish or long for; crave; want.
  2. A longing or craving, as for something that brings satisfaction or enjoyment

People will be lined up for days outside of large corporate businesses to purchase things that they think they need, must have or give!  There are millions throughout America and the world who would be happy just to have the bare necessities of life such as mentioned above.

Most people are manipulated and controlled by the Media, Internet, and society at large, to think that they need things that they really could live without.

If you’re going to shop on black Friday please go to a small business in your local area and support them. Small businesses are going under very quickly because of the large corporations.

Think if you were living in a third world country you’d be grateful for just a decent meal and not concerned about purchasing a gift for someone that you really don’t care about because they bought you something. Choose to not be controlled by the world.

Why not make simple gifts at home and involve your whole family?

Donate your time at a homeless shelter. Volunteer to help out in hospitals. People are very lonely during the holidays and you could do a lot to help others. Helping others is the key to helping yourself.

Why not change your lifestyle starting today. This week is about Thanks Giving and that’s what every day should be about-giving thanks. You are more fortunate than you think.

In this world we are living through a time of both great darkness and light. We have war, and corporate control, alongside a great spiritual emergence. It is time to choose which collective time line you want to take. Trust your heart rather than what you see on the news or told by authority.

“Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.” Jim Morrison

My Message of Thanks to You For This Past Year.

Greetings everyone and Blessed Thanksgiving to you and your family. I’d like to say thank you to all who have visited, followed, liked, and commented on this blog. It surprises me that thousands of people visit my blog each week.  I would like to thank all of you in your support of my efforts in reaching out to people from all walks of life to encourage and enlightened them on their path.  I’m grateful that the work that I have been doing all these years has helped people that I do not even know. It takes a lot of work to do social media every day, but I receive messages from people telling me that I have changed their life even though we have never spoken. There are days when I’m so sick or in so much pain that I do not feel like working on the Internet, but these messages, from people like you, keep me inspired and I know that I’m helping others.

I’m really quite amazed that I have made it through this year.  It has been a tumultuous year for me starting with falling last December and then falling again in September. Many of you know that I’ve been bedridden for 24 years due to an accident and countless diseases. My body is very weak, but my spirit is still very strong. The last accident has caused a multitude of problems that move from organ to organ I am walking a bit, but nowhere equal to what I was walking a year ago.  Not many people could make it on their own In my situation without any family. I know that my story has inspired so many people. For that I am grateful. It was extremely difficult for me to go public about my situation because of being a spiritual advisor. People think that because you are doing spiritual work everything in your life should be perfect, but that’s not always the case. Many other spiritual workers have written to me telling me that they find themselves having illness and not sure how to proceed in their spiritual work feeling like they are somehow a failure. Everything happens for reason and I believe in my particular case that the hardships that I go through have been for the refining of my soul. I would never have known who I really was if life had been easy for me.

The thanksgiving season always holds great meaning for me because my father. He came from incredible poverty and by his own intelligence and work obtained great success. Every year he held thanksgiving as a sacred time. He always showed his gratitude by donating turkey’s to the local homeless shelters as well as all the other acts of kindness that he did throughout the year. When I first became bedridden it was hard on my father to accept and yet he did. He himself was extremely sick with Parkinson’s disease. He made sure every year that someone delivered a thanksgiving dinner to me. With all the people that I have known not many were there for me when the chips were down. My father always was. This particular thanksgiving is really stirring up the memories for me because twenty years ago he went into a Coma on thanksgiving weekend and passed away a month later.

I miss his physical presence so much as he was always my hero. I know that he is with me and I sense his presence around me, but it’s never the same. I look forward to the time that we meet again face to face.

I am grateful to everyone that has used my services privately. As a small business person this recession has really hit my business tremendously. The feedback that I receive tells me that I have helped people on their path and given them direction.

I cannot express enough in words the gratitude I feel to those who have generously donated to me this past year. If it was not for you wonderful people who donated I would not be here now delivering this message. Many of you I know and many I do not. Once again it shows the generosity of spirit and those that have kindness residing in their hearts. I am grateful for the fact that I can walk a few steps and that so many of you care.

It has been tremendously humbling for me to reach out publicly and ask for help. Again there has to be a purpose behind this not only am I being blessed, but the givers are being blessed in ways that we can’t even imagine. There is a divine purpose behind all of this and someday we will understand it.

I leave you with my final thought at this time of gratitude.

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us and that the world will live as one.”  John Lennon

Sending you lots of love and light throughout these sacred holidays,

Thanksgiving Reminds Me of My Father


So you will understand why Thanksgiving has such deep meaning for me let me give you a little history about my father. He lived in Tennessee and when he was a little boy of six years old, in the year 1924, his mother the local town tramp, told him to take his two little brothers and sister and find a way to survive. My father did by working on farms doing any thing they asked, and took care of those little kids; they slept in barns until he became old enough to provide a rented home. He never went to school because he worked any type of job on farms he could and was grateful for the work. Eventually he was able to buy land and had his own farm.

World War Two came along and he was drafted into the army. He was shipped to the Philippines and fought in the Pacific. On one mission his entire platoon was killed and he was shot repeatedly, but played dead and was the only survivor of his platoon.

After the army he returned to farming, but the government had shown him there was better ways to make money and offered him education. He went into the aerospace industry, which was a booming business. He became so skilled at making aircraft engine bolts that eventually he formed his own company. Every Thanksgiving he gave a turkey to his employees. He told me, “If I give them money they might not bring home food to their children, this way I know the kids will get something to eat.” He understood poverty and being hungry.

The last Thanksgiving that we had as a family before my mother passed away my father made a little prayer and blessed the food. That was the first time I had ever seen him do that and I realized the deep gratitude he felt. Every year along with giving his employees frozen turkeys he donated a truckload of frozen turkeys to the local homeless shelter.

My health became bad in my late thirties and after an accident I was unable to drive and my father always brought me a Thanksgiving dinner. He personally would bring it to me even though his own health was failing from Parkinson’s disease. Eventually he became bedridden, but he made sure that somebody delivered a Thanksgiving dinner to me every year.

My father passed away December 27, 1994. But to this day Thanksgiving has more meaning to me than any other holiday because it’s about being grateful for what ever you have no matter if you are rich or poor.

Celebrate this time and be thankful for everything you have. Be thankful for the people that are in your life and care about you. Be grateful for our little furry and feathered friends that love us no matter what. Be thankful that you have a roof over your head and a table filled with food. Pray for those who have no food and to show your true gratitude volunteer at a homeless shelter or church this year to help serve the meals on Thanksgiving.

I’m thankful that I had the most wonderful father anyone could ever ask for whom always loved me and took care of me.

Thanksgiving

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Thanksgiving Blessings to You and Your Family!

Our national holiday really stems from the feast held in the autumn of 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag to celebrate the colony’s first successful harvest.

Are You Thankful?

Have you stopped to think about it?
What DO you have to be thankful for?
Like the words of this old hymn …

Count Your Blessings

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings; name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done!

Chorus
Count your blessings,
Name them one by one;
Count your blessings,
See what God hath done;
Count your blessings,
Name them one by one;
Count your many blessings,
See what God hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by.

When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that God has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessing, money cannot buy,
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict, whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
