Minister's Message for November 2015
"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough." Meister Eckhart
In Nature, the planting of spring, the growth during summer and the harvest during early fall has completed. Now is the time to celebrate and be thankful for the year's bounty. If it's been an abundant year, it's easy to feel gratitude. If not, it can be more challenging. Paul wrote, "In everything give thanks." He was sitting in prison, sentenced to death, when he wrote that.
Sometimes we want to wait until we have something to be grateful for before giving thanks. But our teaching that "consciousness is cause" says that this attitude is backwards. As we practice gratitude - gratitude for no specific reason - we will grow and become aware of more and more for which to be grateful. Ernest Holmes tells us, "Gratitude is one of the chief graces of human existence and is crowned in heaven with a consciousness of unity." "In heaven" doesn't mean a place in the great bye and bye - it means within our own high consciousness. As we are grateful, we experience the results of that gratitude - which is more for which we feel grateful - and, out of that, we see the unity of all.
Gratitude is an expression - a form - of love. Love is the core quality of God/the Infinite. When we engage in gratitude, we are connecting with the most powerful part of the Infinite Nature expressing as Love. This month, warm your heart by the glow of gratitude and watch the results.
Have a wonderful month!
