BEING THANKFUL

Most all of us have so very much to be thankful for even when we fail to see the blessings while in the midst of some kind of stressful situation. I truly believe for one to be at peace with themselves and with life in general they must show their gratitude. And personally, I feel the best way to show gratitude for our blessings is for us to do something nice for someone else so that they too may see some kindness in their life, which in turn will maybe help them feel better about their situation. There are many ways though that one can show gratitude so do whatever you must to show your appreciation. I leave you with a quote from Meister Eckhart who once stated: "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "Thank you," then that would suffice." May all of your lives be blessed richly now and forever!

The thing named...."Religion", is the monster in the world. Religion, wielding the twin weapons of guilt and fear, was the first strategy employed to manipulate the world. Did you ever wonder where religion came from? I don’t mean, why do people turn to religion and worship gods? Sure, when things get tough, people feel a need to call on something to save them from their predicament. But where did the very concept and this need for religion originate? Why was there a predicament in the first place? Once this problem was introduced into the scheme of things, why was there a response from the people that they needed to be saved? And of course, once the population responded to the problem, who came up with the notion of worshiping a god?

In Psalm 14:1 we are told that “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”

Now if this is the word of god, and for that matter, if god were really a wise and great creator, I might be a tad shaken by these words. What follows may appear foolish, but to the open minded, it may be a breath of fresh air. You see, this bible quote was written by the luciferian mind, the corrupt entity that rules the planet. There is no god, there is only the luciferian mind of corruption that conjures up the 3D reality we are experiencing. In fact, the bible and every religious book written is inspired by the corrupt entity that governs the Illuminati agenda. When I say every religious book, that includes every science text, every new age bestseller, every book on esoteric magic, every astrological/numerological notion … everything!

Hi Cap...dear friend.Darkstar I see has many names and blogs, and apparently quite a strong opinion with religion.Scientology perhaps? Its creepy to me.I wish him to know that, though respect everyone's opinions on religion.
You're blog dear friend is very spiritual.I have always found calm here without stepping into a church.I believe in my own way of things that suit me.And you except us all (always) with open arms without pushing.You make me think of others, and remind me that my sometimes topsy world isn't as bad as my neighbor's.That I can forge on with great dignity,strength,and resiliency.
You have always been a dear friend.I hold your family with great regard and thankfulness that you exist to share your words to lift us up-in time especially when life has been so exasperating.
Love to you my friend and your family (always) xo

Hi my dear Dee. I sure appreciate all the kind words. I am so happy that you have been able to find some peace and calm from sharing my blog. Our friendship goes way back to the old J/S days and I have always felt a closeness to you and your beautiful family. Likewise I have found your writings to be a blessing for me also. And importantly so your words of encouragement have managed to keep me going with my writing as I tend to get somewhat lazy from time to time. As always the very best to you and yours and thank you again my friend for being such a gift in my life.

Namaste brother Ron; it has been such a pleasure to catch up to your posts today. Work has kept me too busy, I am looking forward to fall and a slow down.

This post is another great expression; simply stated, powerful and thought provoking. Giving thanks may seem like a common sense piece of advice however, intertwined in this philosophical tide is a bevy of important spiritual truths. To truly be thankful in our heart requires the greatest of understanding of how consciousness, in turn love and unity are expressed.

In Lak'ech, prosper with thanks... live with unity...
