Thanks and Giving
In Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, he states “Giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of the Universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the Universe circulating in our lives.”
In our culture, Thanksgiving is the traditional start of our winter holiday season of thanks and giving. As we fulfill our part in this Second Spiritual Law, we begin by giving thanks for what we already have in our lives, and continue the process by considering what we can give to others.
Any heartfelt “thank you” is an important piece in this dynamic. Feeling “Thank you” tells yourself, others and the Universe that you are grateful and appreciative. It is this gratitude and appreciation that keep the flow of creation, and abundance and expansion active in our own lives…and, through us, offered to the lives of others.
Weaving together the daily “thank you’s” we give through the year supports the fabric of who we are. Then gratitude is seen as a way of life, a cause for celebration and remembrance all year ‘round.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
