Thank you for receiving my Light,
and reflecting this Light back to me.
“When a mind has only light,
it knows only light.
Its own radiance shines all around it,
and extends out into the darkness of other minds,
transforming them into majesty.
The Majesty of God is there,
for you to recognize and appreciate and know.
Recognizing the Majesty of God as your brother
is to accept your own inheritance.
God gives only equally.
If you recognize His gift in anyone,
you have acknowledged what He has given you.
Nothing is so easy to recognize as truth.
This is the recognition that is immediate, clear and natural.”
For me, every day is Thanksgiving. I don’t equate giving thanks one day a year based on a very short-lived respite between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians at Plymouth Plantation in 1621 with real gratitude.
True thanks is the immediate, clear and natural response when your only purpose is choosing to see the Light in others, no matter what their personality or behavior. Admittedly, for most of us, Thanksgiving does provide ample opportunities to practice applying this truth
Let me know how seeing the Light in your brothers goes this holiday. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
