Daily Inspiration: November 23. From “Why Me” to “Thank You.” Gratitude in Tough Times – Condensed Version

How many times in our life have we woken up with the distinct goal of dedicating our day to gratitude? Doesn’t this sound like a useful healing opportunity and path? In this time of Thanksgiving, let us dedicate this day to gratitude. In every moment that we can remember to do so, let our goal be to make gratitude our constant companion. Imagine how our mindset and day would shift to a more joyous and peaceful state if we began to make gratitude our constant companion. Let us not judge situations, ourself or others and keep asking “why me” as the ego has programmed us to do. Instead, let us trust in the sacred nature of the journey that we have co-created with God. To do so, let us teach ourself to reply to each moment and interaction by thinking or saying, “Thank you.”

It may seem like we are being asked to try out a very small shift in our attitude and mindset. Yet if we truly realize the transformational power of gratitude, it would change our life forever. We can control our thoughts, but often, we are not really in control of them. The ego, through judgment, tries to place itself in opposition to Love, who is God and All. But in truth, there cannot be an opposition to All. Thus judgment of self and others is a sign that the ego’s delusional mindset is in control of our thinking. Today, let us no longer buy into the ego’s lies as true. In doing so, we can take back control of our own mind. Gratitude, as an expression of Love, is a part of who we are in truth. Gratitude is a sign of being in alignment with the mind of God. Gratitude shows us that the truth in us is back in control of our mind and thus of our life.

All glory to God.

Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
