Be who you are

In your week of giving thanks, we give thanks and praise for the gift that you are upon your planet earth. It is through your willingness to choose love instead of hate, faith instead of fear, and to find abundance where others see only lack, that you bring God's light into the world. You are the cournocopia of life dear friends. You are the ones who are willing to fill you cup and then spill it over into the world. It takes courage to be human. It takes even more courage to believe in love.

Take some time this week to give thanks for your own beautiful and bright soul that inhabits these bodies you live in. Take some time to give thanks for your bodies for they are the vehicle for your souls. Take time to give thanks for all those who have served your growth - both in joyful and painful ways for they have made you who you are today. Give thanks for the abundance of God's love that you find within your very own hearts for this is the only true and everlasting security. Give thanks for what you do have, and for the dreams that you wish to create.

Give thanks for the gift that YOU are, and the life that you lead upon this school called earth. It is the hero's journey. To be human and to bring love into spaces where there is very little, to share truth with hearts filled with fear, and to trust in God even when you do not always have tangible reason to do so - these dear ones, are lessons in the mastery of love. It takes fortitude to keep going in times when fear runs so freely on your planet, and yet when you find faith, when you practice loving kindness, when you are truthful with yourselves and others, then dear ones you find an abundance that goes way beyond the roof over your head and the food on your tables - you find the abundance of God's love within you. This is the cournocopia of life that overfloweth. This is the well that never runs dry. This love, dear friends, is what you are made of. Give thanks for who you really are and for the human life you have chosen to live. It is a rare and precious opportunity to expand God's love - not always easy, but certainly worth the while.
