a native american
shows a european how to fish
and in that sweet lesson
helped new inhabitants endure a winter
the following autumn
a gathering occurred
the harvest was a plenty
the depth of gratitude
extended far beyond the food
one culture helped another survive
and now families across the land
pause to give thanks and unite
but what touches me deeply about this story
is that the natives even cared at all
something welled up within them
when they saw the suffering ones
something greater than self interest
enabled them hold each hand one by one
and in that moment the possessions of matter (land blindsided culture beliefs)
fell to the import of helping fellow brotherhood
yes it was their land
yes they were newcomers
yes they were different
from language to dress to skin color
but Those natives had this welling within them to help the immigrants’ basic needs
and because they helped them know how tool plant and fish
we now gather for Thanksgiving and thriving to live
I’m always touched by this story
It raises the bar for me
And hourly truly do I ask
How are you helping humanity’s survival endure lovey one Tre?
I ask this again and again …Yes I truly do.
And see friend here’s the answer:
I’m devoting my life to the practice of the science of mind healing
What’s helped me survive daily and hourly through and through
But I can do better I know I simply must
To share the truths that help me survive hourly
That help me shed the lies of mortality and prove the enduring spiritual substance
So as I’m sitting here well into this Thanksgiving week
I’m praying for the ideas to know and how best to share them.
Seems I’m well overdue
For offering what’s helped me most
to overcome the fear of alone
to face down the “I’m not strong/good/wise/experienced/adequate enough” foe
And I am cooking up a big meal surely
of ideas and ways to impart survival truths
But the singlemost meaningful one of all
is the forever fact of our oneness.
What do I mean by ‘oneness’ you ask?
Well, surely do I mean we are each one with divine Love.
And like a ray that emanates from the sun
From Love we can never be separate (ever.)
So what this means is as you are facing what you must
you are never alone
you never don’t have what you need
in the single moment all is well
And that may sound ludicrous to you
And you may argue with me non stop
But the very thing we each must do when we feel desperate (for whatever… about whatever)
is to face down the foe / lie / onslaught that we are separate.
We are one with Love every single moment
We are the very expression of His/Her intelligence
And this means that in insisting on being love
We outpour with our lives as best as we feel in that moment capable of.
Being love refuses to avoid what we must face
Being love tenderly hugs our heart and says again and again “you can do this”
Being love resists the pulls toward apathy or hardness of heart
Being love utterly and unequivocally demands to not size up the worth of one’s life by external measurements
Being love assesses the moment and where thought is resting
Being love radically turns over the table of giving up all that’s been invested (thought wise)
Being love insists that good is happening no matter what
Being love searches for the silent hidden that Love is a source of constant 24/7 comfort
Being love means you focus on not reacting.
Being love means you turn your ear the other way when the peacocks of gossip, criticism, condemning among others wanna occupy the stage
Being love means you stay alert awake and aware
And honor the unseen victories in thought of overcoming fear
And as each one of us does this and lives this fact of oneness
Our lives are being that friend — a beacon of hope — to one another
And it may not look like fishing
And it’s often in our moments on our own
But each and every second we pour into establishing standing proving and ensuring our oneness
Goodness we are being the native for our global sister and brotherhood
Everywhere I go and every call I receive
someone is desperate somewhere and needs that assurance of Love’s constancy
Even when I have no calls on a single day
Goodness does my work agenda stay full advocating for each to feel Love’s stay.
If you are feeling desperate in any way or form
If the alone afraid abandoned beliefs are strangling you in your thought home
If you feel yourself avoiding every thing you know you must face or change
I welcome you pondering this spiritual fact
Love is with you every single moment of every single day
You are not alone
You are not abandonned
You are not neglected
And you’ve truly never been
And all that you are needing to do is face down the horrific cloud of lies
That wants you to stay so weak and small and feeling nothing matters about your precious life
And that onslaught is worse than the coldest winter the pilgrims faced
And that onslaught must be fought against every moment of every day.
Each of our lives matter so deeply very much
And so friend reading I would like to offer a Thanksgiving healing hug.
If you can’t get through this week without that empty ache
If you’re wanting to understand deeply more about your precious oneness
I welcome you contact me for a healing call
And I will share a bit more about what helps me time and again overcome fear
And for the one that’s wondering “what’s in this for her?”
My heart to yours the joy of sharing what’s helped me time and again endure.
And for the one wondering “yeah but how much will it cost?”
I trust your sense of value and dignity and would invite you to pay whatever you feel the call is worth.
And if these words are all we share on this Monday’s moment of meaning of Thanksgiving week
Take a moment to hug your heart
You are the very essence of Love’s being.
Always held governed guided and maintained in Love’s hands.
Tender love to you.
Here’s to living thought by thought what we most need and what humanity is hungering for: our oneness.
Deepest gratitude to you and for you for being here and for devoting your lives in all the ways of good that you do.
My heart to yours,
