THANKS GIVING On this thanks giving day, let us fully realize the magnificence of the gift we have received, the sheer vibrancy and wonder of another day to thrive, to flourish, to have our hearts warmed, our souls inspired, our senses awakened. On this thanks giving day let us fully realize the gift we offer the world of our own unique being, the creative force of our aligned intention, the force of will set out to add to the experience of all we encounter, the spark we offer to ignite the fire of divine purpose realized. On this thanks giving day, let us all rejoice in collective thanks for a world so designed it endeavors to ensure our greater good, looks beyond our missteps, and works to offer us a fresh breath for another moment of grace, another opportunity to be alive.

TRUE THANKS Let us turn our thoughts towards gratitude today, knowing even our most jubilant thanks falls short of the true worth of this being, this existence - no momentary, or even lasting concern casts a shadow upon this, our very aliveness. As we prepare to give thanks, feasting on our very abundance, let us recall that we are the hands and feet of the divine based good in the world, recommitting ourselves to our scared promise, to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. So let us look for our opportunity to return our favor - an act of random kindness, a gesture of goodwill, a hand outstretched in a time of need, a word of endearing encouragement - knowing true thanks is best expressed with action in a world so in need of our compassion.

EXTRAORDINARY Let us make this ordinary day something more – extraordinary – a day where we do more than living it – we are instead fully alive in it – awake – present – aware of the day’s unique potential. Let us vow to make our ordinary lives something more – extraordinary – a life where the passion, the wonder, the purpose ignites our every action, motivates our every movement – resulting in an inspired life living out a dream so real we are it in full and complete form. Let us plan a future so big, so appealing, so magnificent, so extraordinary we can only sit in awe of its possibility – its perfect potential – ensuring this life today begins its unfolding – creating its waiting splendor with each new breath.

INNER TRANQUILITY Let us live from our center of tranquility today, exchanging stress and anxiety with a sense of calm and peace as we choose our divine nature within over the ego’s perpetual need for more, bigger, better. Let us realize within this tranquil center we will recognize our true nature, connect with our soulful longing, touch our authentic spirit and know that who we are and what we are is defined and set within, there waiting for us to uncover and discover. Let us, throughout the day, know we may return to the center to regain our peace, our equilibrium, our essential balance simply by focusing on our breath and quieting our minds: mindful and aware that within the present moment we regain our poise, our power, our inner tranquility.

Take action today knowing, envisioning, demanding full cooperation from your mind, your ego, your soul as you realize your power – realize that you are an active agent in your own transformation – the leader of your own destiny.

GRATITUDE Let us scan all of our positive emotions today and choose the most powerful – gratitude – knowing this sentiment represents our soul felt thanks for the sentient life we now enjoy – grateful for the delicate thread that stitches the fabric of our lives together into a living, vital, wondrous form - a divine thread sowing a myriad of possibilities and situations into an abundant, prosperous, and meaningful existence, allowing us to discover and reveal our sacred purpose, enabling us to be the living hands and feet of God in a tangible world – opening our eyes to the miracles sewn together by a grace so significant and thorough it leaves no life forsaken – no soul untouched.

OUR HUMAN, SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION If we, humankind evolves – we evolve into our true spiritual capabilities, able to comprehend the true power and essence of our individual and joint communal existence, our innate ability to cocreate our lives, our existence, our destiny – to use our consciousness to envision an even greater awareness, a more potent potential for all of perceived existence. The true nature of intended thought will then be fathomed, along with the actual intertwining of human consciousness with even the most subtle nature of what is experienced, the link between human intention and the actual beingness experienced; reality understood as a joint demonstration of the intentions of or by the observed. As we evolve, the emergence of our joint human consciousness, an amalgam of all sentient life that has existed, exists, or will exist - providing a compassionate wisdom, brilliance, creative foundation for the human universal growth and expansion of connected life throughout the cosmic domain. Our destiny depends on this essential evolutionary awakening – this reconnection to our very spiritual center, to a time where the missteps or learning of this now, will be understood as a necessary developmental step; as we understand our true divine capabilities and natures; arbiters of heaven on earth and throughout all conscious existence.

A MIRACLE WAITING WITHIN Within us is a miracle waiting to happen – to burst forth and surprise us – forcing us to see a new vision of our lives, our connection with God, and the potential value of all we have to offer. Within us is a miracle so powerful and potent we are often afraid to unwrap it – to disturb its restful state because we know it will bring about a transformation so profound, we will be forced to re-conceive our lives and start again, like an infant learning to master the art of walking. Within us is a miracle existing just beneath the surface of our awareness, which bobs up to pierce the surface – blinding us momentarily then submerging, to wait again for another opportunity to reveal the truth.

OUR OPENING Let us open our hearts, our minds, our spirits to all this day has to offer us, a fresh start, a clearer perspective, a chance to move on centered on our intention, ready to move forward victorious. Let us open ourselves to the vast possibility and potential waiting for our strident “YES!” – waiting for our sure foot free of doubt and fear or trepidation impeding our rightful progress – one and united with the waiting good of our intended efforts and direction. Let us open our lives to the grace, abundance, and the prosperity of purposeful belief and action entwined in synchronous forward movement, stretching, evolving, desiring only our more perfect existence, our communal and personal betterment, our potential realized, our greater good encased.

LIVING FOREVER FORWARD Today let us grab hold of a fresh start – living forever forward and not in reverse, releasing, forgiving, and relinquishing the missteps and misdirection of our past in the favor of a clean slate – a perfect unsoiled intention available to us here and now, today. Today let us grasp this new opportunity for fresh living, moving within to find our unique and lasting contribution – our authentic purpose not tied to yesterday but set free to soar to its own potential rightness, within the possibility of this day now, today. Today let us commit to growing and evolving into this new being – this clearer, freer, more connected force for prosperous living – this creator of a new tomorrow focused on what could be rather than what has been – this God in us waiting to be set free today.

SLOW AND THOROUGH Today, let us let being “slow and thorough” supersede our inclination to “rush and do fast,” realizing that with a steady thoughtful progress we enable the best results to form and surface – to take careful shape and arrive perfect and complete. Today let us approach our pending change by being slow and thorough, considering each alternative with careful and complete introspection – airing its potential – trying it on for size – mulling over its fit and comfort. Today let us be slow and thorough, as we approach each action, every task, careful with our motions – savoring the activity as we do the finished product, mindful and aware of the pleasure of simple thoughtful existence. AT G. 11.14.2012 WITH LOVE, G. Continue reading

FREE TO BE UNIQUE Today let us aspire to be ourselves rather than adjust ourselves to fit some standard – some formulation of improved qualities we should all strive to mirror in our day-to-day lives, and instead, just bring to life what we have been created to offer. Today let us just be our best selves – no more – no less – understanding that within our eccentricities exists our unique contribution to the flavor and fabric of life and existence itself – so bring all of you to the party – leave nothing out – and let us all bask in the wonder of one of a kind. Today let us just be us as we allow others to be their authentic selves – no need for compromise, no cause to criticize, no expectation of change, no list of minor improvements needed and together tap the strength of our true diversity. AT G. 7.4.2012 Continue reading

A sign, a vision, or a miracle is our cocreation with the outer mind channeled through the inner mind, this local mind, our mind, is always framed and fashioned by us as the participator, the originator, intending with a concoction of desire, intent fused with emotion, and emboldened with unequivocal belief. Beingness - the unfolding consciousness we exist within, originate, construct, intend - embodies the traces of our active living, our participation. Like an artist, we lay down our strokes of living flashes of brilliant color and substance, meshing them with what comes before, finding a blending, expressing a fuller presence with each dab or stroke of our brush. The significance of these traces we form, which fashion and contribute to the evolution of humanity is expressed in the Note On Enlightenment shared below. Let us tend to our traces! TRACES Form, function, façade – traces of what was, is, or will be, impressions etched upon the very fabric of being, the essence of aliveness, faint or fully stamped, clear or hardly visible, impressed being resonating a sonar-like clang through the ages - encased in fuller consciousness, a contribution, an antecedent, accessible when summoned. These traces exist beyond the very act of tangible living, like the beats and patterns of a distant melody, the embers of fire long since abandoned, ashes of memory, the bits and bytes used but now discarded, yet always present when envisioned, available once again for useful reflection, recall, or remembrance. These traces are the legacy of being, existing, living in life unfolding, charged by the passion, the emotion of aliveness – vibrations of striving, creating, grasping for a foothold in eternity, the scent and smell and sweat of pure involvement, total emersion of right intent and desire, purposeful then, resounding forever as traces etched and recorded in the memory of consciousness, a notable, global, universal contribution to the communal, combined magnificence, the earnest evolution.

YOU BEING YOU Today spend at least a portion of this day doing what you sincerely want to do, not what you have to do, or are expected to do but what you truly desire to do in your heart of hearts - feel the positive flow – the sensation of unencumbered doing. Today spend at least a portion of this day thinking what you sincerely want to think, not what you are expected to think but instead your thoughts alone – possibly creative thoughts, fun thoughts, or even meaningless thoughts – just your thoughts. Today spend at least a portion of this day being who you want to be – not what others expect you to be – desire you to be but instead being just who you – and you alone – want to be - perhaps someone imaginary, or special, or just undisturbed and free to be you being you.

FINDING OUR STRIDE Let us embrace the challenges life has for us today, knowing even in our seemingly weaker moments, we are fully prepared to master this and more, capable and poised for success in each and every endeavor. As we embrace our unique and personal challenges, let us call forth the strength that has empowered us to this point in time, fueled by our faith in the imminence of divine support, and our expectation of the good, which will naturally, follow. So today let us accept this, our calling, find our stride, working to be the master of this moment, strong - wise – triumphant – fully aware that our best effort is within our grasp - knowing even in the dim light, we shine forever bright.

THE FIRES WE IGNITE As we pound away to form our sincere impression on life, as we invest substantial energy leaving our mark, let us realize what is real and lasting is the joy, peace, love, and happiness we have shared with others. Let our lasting monument be the generation of these moments of heaven on earth, as each present an opportunity for the divine within us to connect with the strength of will between us, making this world a bit brighter and more livable. So, as we do every day, let the sparks fly as our contributions erupt and take shape, now realizing it is the fires we ignite and share that truly provide the warmth and splendor, the perpetual magnificence of an earthly heaven.

TURNING POINT Often in the heat of living, we underestimate our capacity for change, for reconfiguration, transformation, failing to realize we hold the rudder within our grasp, that in every focused moment the turning point presents itself, requiring only our vested intention. Whether this turning point only calls for a modest correction, or a full about-face, the degree of change is ours for calibration, adjustable as we proceed - no maneuver fixing our placement or direction, but in truthfully malleable - pliable. Today let us study our course of action, conscious of its ramifications, easily releasing our grip on past intentions if advantageous, open and ready for inspiration if available, knowing turning points are often our finest soulful expressions, where will and fate meet, where destiny is forged.

WHAT IS TRULY OURS Let us work to reclaim what is truly ours today, our courage, our strength, our confidence in the power we possess – the birthright so often lost in self-generated fears and condemnation - the spark of divinity we carry within. Let this reclamation be complete and thorough, no room, or allowance, in our consciousness for the unwarranted thoughts of a malicious sentiment – just the purity and clarity of our true natures – who we represent – what we are entitled to - our purposeful magnificence. Today we reclaim and reinstate the presence of mind, body, and spirit that ensures our complete transcendence – allowing our sights to be fixed on thriving and flourishing, transfixed on our power to create heaven on earth, and the restoration of infinite well-being.

OUR INTERNAL MUSE Perhaps we are better prepared to live this life successfully than we believe, could it be, in our pursuit to do what is right, proper, or expected, we fail to listen to the guidance generated by our own internal muse, our deep soulful longing. Ah, you say - "mine has no sense of propriety, wanting to do only what would make me happy in the end, I might spend my time singing, dancing, and celebrating - how would I survive?" As we, return to sanity and don the hair shirt of our existence once more, often strangely comfortable in our required discomfort, let us take notice of the inner voice we mute, peering deep within to cautiously redirect our efforts, perhaps.

GROWING EDEN Our value in this life is not revealed by what we do, but truly, by what we feel – the measure of love we share with the world through our pursuit of passion, of meaning, the compassionate footsteps we make in the sands of existence. Our value in this life is our work of art, our creation – a vibration of such force it resonates throughout eternity – awakening souls and making God smile – a masterpiece in motion – calling us to apply bold strokes with vibrant colors. Our value in this life is what we preview for eternity –providing the soil to grow our Garden of Eden – our heaven on earth – our joyful noise to all creation – so let’s sing loudly.
