Thanksgiving Is My Favorite Holiday

on November 27, 2013

“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.” Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I feel gratitude is so important and because I feel that I am pretty good at it.  The Native Americans teach several important things about this holiday, so let us look at a few.

The food you eat is a gift from Great Spirit (even if you paid for it).  Life is being converted to a Higher form by us consuming it with grace given to the animal or plant.  We always thank the animal or plant for giving its life so that we may live.  It is a thought and a feeling that becomes a habit every time you consume something, yes, so this goes for all consumables, gas, paper, products, etc.

The Earth (Gaia) is alive!  We need to treat her as such!  Take only what you need and leave each place you visit (including your own home) better than you found it.  This means depositing trash in the proper receptacle, being careful/mindful of the space you occupy and treat it as if it were your own while remembering others who may be using this space, if not now at some time in the future.  The Native Americans call this Seven Generational thinking, meaning your actions should consider the next seven generations who live on that land.

cornucopia-thanksgivingAbundance is everywhere!  Gaia provides for our every need and those who realize this and act with respect and gratitude draw this to them.  This is called Prosperity mindedness.  It comes from deep within you and springs out like a fountain, thus the cornucopia symbol used this time of year.  Have faith you always have what you need.  It may not be what you would prefer or you may desire more, but needs are always met.  The more one practices Prosperity Mindedness, the more one attracts to themselves.  This is done by giving till it hurts as the saying goes.  What you give another, you give yourself!  This is the very meaning of Oneness and if you have been paying attention you completely understand we are all One – One with Gaia, and all her family of animals, plants, and minerals.  Separation is the Grand Illusion… some would call it the Human Game, but that is a whole other story.

I wish to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for reading this blog and supporting Unity in Gender Diversity.  The feeling of gratitude includes grace, joy, wholeness, pleasing, praise, honor, and purity.  Take a minute now and feel it….  Practice/Remember this feeling often!   Know you are Love and we are Home.
