Be thankful this day and everyday to know who we are and who we are not in the process of life. Be thankful this day and everyday to bring clarity and acceptance to situations and people who open the Soul. Be thankful this day and everyday to remember our source of wisdom, allowing it shared and magnified with Self and others.
The thought of gratitude, when expressed pertains to an event that has already happened. For example, when someone opens a door for you, you say "Thank You." or even when we survive a traumatic experience, gratitude is expressed because we made it through.
Recognition is more than just giving a person praise for work done or of any from of accomplishment, and honoring God. Recognition is knowing, understanding and seeing the world, people and the energy around your for what they truly are. We must first accept the objects in our field of vision as they are and not color them. This will distort any the true view of what is placed before us. We have the ability to change nothing into something. What I mean by this, the strength of our minds and our free will can change anything into our desires, yet our heart and spirit truly knows it's not what you desire.
When something shows up in our life, do we pause to appreciate it or do shrug it off because it's is know exactly what we want? Do we shrug it off because this is a fact we already know about self or something we don't want to hear? Think about why we turn something away.
Over the past year of my life, I lost my aunt and mom. My immediate family. I then met my biological father. I experienced both sadness and joy in such a short period. After a period of loss and gain, and being on a rollercoaster of emotion, the definition of family was reshaping.
Our presence is awareness of our whole-self. As beings, we are comprised of organic matter and pure energy. However, our organic bodies are just another form of energy. In essence we are just energy in its many forms. Our presence is the energy felt by self and others around us. The presence given off is related to the range of emotions felt, everything from love to fear. When we feel a heightened emotion from life or situation; our presence/energy changes to accommodate the shift.
Our personal beliefs are products of our collective thoughts. The basic thoughts we think on a daily basis stem from a collective consciousness. The collective consciousness is like the database (Source) of information then transmitted to other computers, (us).
Our soul's purpose is different than our life's purpose, yet they are connected. The life purpose guides us in each incarnated life cycle to learn what is desired to come closer fulfilling our soul purpose. The soul purpose is to live and achieve our highest state of evolution, which will result in the ending of the incarnation of physical life cycles.
