A FaceBook friend, John Lusk, had this on his status this week:
"I am grateful for noticing my GPS (Gratitude Perception System) was powered off this morning and had the good sense to turn it on and recalibrate it for clearer direction."
I love this -- I've used the GPS device as a metaphor so many times -- and this is the best one!
I love being open to perceiving things to be grateful for! There's a French proverb that says "Gratitude is the heart's memory." I've been writing 5 things I'm grateful for every night since I read Sarah Ban Breathnach's book Simple Abundance in 1995. Some nights, after I've written the things I'm grateful for in that day, I flip the pages and read what I was grateful for on the same date in the years past. What great memories! My intentional focus on gratitude has led to more and more things to be grateful for.
Let's remember our internal GPS as we participate in Thanksgiving dinner this year. We can power it up by taking a deep breath. If things become strained or rushed - that's the time to let the GPS recalibrate!! Thank goodness it does it automatically!!
I am grateful for you, my dear readers. You have kept me on point for 10 years!! Every Friday, no matter what, I get to focus on how I can share Spirit with you. I always feel good when I send it off. I'm grateful for my computer and for the internet, which makes this possible. And I'm grateful for Spirit as It moves through my mind inspiring me, and out my fingers inspiring you!
Blessings, Rev. Angelica
SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT
God is Love - and Love is all there is. I am one with this Infinite Love. It lives and moves and has Its being in me, and I in It. We are One.
I trust Infinite Love to guide me along my Life Path. There is within me a Voice -- I now choose to hear it more clearly. It is constantly recalibrating my way as I walk my Path.
It is my automatic pilot. It is my authentic self. I am so grateful to know It.
As I stand in an attitude of gratitude, I set up a wave of Infinite Love that moves throughout the Universe, nurturing, blessing, healing, and guiding whether we are aware of It or not. I now choose to know that as the wave I set up moves outward, It does so with a quickening of Spirit, and an awakening of hearts and minds. A wave of gratitude comes back to me and the circle of Life eternally continues.
I am grateful for this teaching, for the people in my life and for these words - and I release them into the Law of Mind knowing they are done. And so It is.
