As Thanksgiving approaches this seems very appropriate.
“I LOVE my life. I really do. I love what I have come to KNOW of myself as a spiritual being, and I love the growing SELF-AWARENESS that envelops me more and more every day, regardless of what events and appearances I may experience. Finally , I KNOW that I am MUCH MORE than the things, situations, even the people in my life. It is not that I do’t get upset at times or disappointed, angry, and let down. By now I KNOW that not everything is going to line up according to my wants and needs, but I also KNOW that it REALLY and TRULY IS NOT IMPORTANT that they do.
Yes, I am fully INVESTED in my PARTICIPATION in life, and I am also more willing than ever to let things unfold as they will in the divine flow. ... I let myself be the spot where God shows up in the world as Margaret, and this is sufficient. There will always be more to learn and more unsettling to take place, but I DO NOT FEAR the disruptions in my status quo, because I have come to TRUST the Inner Presence within me to secure me as part of Itself. The tears of loss and the joys of attainment will come and go as they always have, and through it all, Divine Spirit keeps me close.
