Amongst many other concerns and considerations, there are so many things to be thankful for. Friends, families, heartfelt connections, communities who care. There is abundance of one kind or another. There is belief in our divine potential. There is an understanding of who we really are.
There are new realities emerging, displacing the old. We no longer need to be victims of our history, our old stories, our outdated habits and beliefs. We are not helpless in the face of the sometimes discouraging, even at times terrifying, picture of life we see outplaying before us. We have the ability to make change and allow our authenticity to emerge.
We are on the precipice of being able to do and believe things previously thought impossible. As the Queen told Alice, “I daresay you haven’t had much practice. When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why sometimes I believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Let our thanks giving enliven our spirits and raise us up to a place of new belief. Let us support one another in the effort. Let us harmonize heart and mind and make the upward trek with joy. There are new realities ahead!
