gratitude: a state of authentic living

This coming Thursday, November 22; we, in America, celebrate Thanksgiving. This is a holiday whose core value is found within gratitude.

According to Webster's on line dictionary, gratitude originated in
"Middle English, from Anglo-French or Medieval Latin; Anglo-French, from Medieval Latin gratitudo, from Latin gratus grateful."

Webster's definition for gratitude is "the state of being grateful : hankfulness."

When you live life, from a state of gratitude; your life enfolds as a beautiful loving experience. Your experience of each day is richer and the results you seek are beautifully and lovingly expressed as your dreams and aspirations manifest with ease demonstrating beauty and harmony beyond your wildest expectations. 

When you align with the divine within your attitudes and actions flow from the authentic you; the person who identifies with unconditional love and acceptance of self and others.

When you withhold nothing of your authentic self and are free to express yourself from your inner divine; your results are in alignment with what's best for you and all whose paths you cross.

Belief in competition limits the true expression of your authentic self which is loving and free of all restrictive fear-based  beliefs.
Once you shed these fear-based beliefs you may now collaborate with others to solve the problems our world currently faces. Our current ego-driven and fear-based belief systems are truly the cause of most of the pain we individually and collectively are now experiencing in our world.

As individuals and as a collective world population, we must break the strangle hold that living in an ego-driven and fear based mind-set has upon us.

It is through individual and collective consciousness raising that we are free to set our course upon building a world where all share in the abundance that exists upon our Earth.


('Hailed as "one of the greatest minds of our times, R. Buckminster Fuller was renowned for his comprehensive perspective on the world's problems. For more than five decades, he developed pioneering solutions that reflected his commitment to the potential of innovative design to create technology that does "more with less" and thereby improves human lives.')

Living in a state of gratitude is a target that will free you to live the life in which beautiful dreams are comprised and share a world harmoniously crafted through unconditional love!

Authentically You - Natures Greatest Miracle

"This above all:
To thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man."
 - Hamlet, Shakespeare

Being true to yourself is one of the keys to your alignment with authentic happiness. That being said; as our society has become so complex individuals have lost the ability to 'connect' with natural environment.

Our ancestors were in an enlightened relationship with nature. They were taught, as young children, to be aware of the relationship with nature and to cherish it. That relationship enjoyed a harmonious nature between environment and man.

During subsequent generations we became more indoctinated with a European concept of control of nature. This mind-set moved us into a different type of relationship with our environment; away from mutual benefit to control and manipulation.

In the current world culture; each of us is constantly exposed to messages designed to control both your thoughts and behaviors.  Some of the typical methods used to control mass population mind-set have been and  are :

  • Denial of education for the masses of population; or minority groups.
  • Disenfranchisement of voting and other rights through laws, regulations and tactics.
  • Mass-media manipulation. including, but not limited to:

    Distraction by nationalism;

    Straw man fallacy -

    (The "straw man fallacy" is the lumping of a strong  opposition argument opposition  ; together with one or many weak ones to create a simplistic weak argument that can easily be refuted.) ;

    Distraction by scapegoat;

    Distraction by phenomenon -(A risky but effective strategy summarized best, perhaps, by David Mamet's 1997 movie Wag the Dog, by which the public can be distracted, for long periods of time, from an important issue, by one which occupies more news time. When the strategy works, you have a war or other media event taking attention away from misbehaving or crooked leaders. When the strategy does not work, the leader's misbehavior remains in the press, and the war is derided as an attempted distraction.)   

    Distraction by semantics;

    Distraction by regression; 

    (This method uses the previous state of the opponent propaganda to prevent the negotiation of actual issues.)

    Distraction by misleading;

    (This method injects false issues into the opponent's propaganda or attempts to create connections with falsities. Repetition of falsehoods from numerous outlets, nearly simultaneously, is one of the most effective means to mislead by distraction.)

    Distraction by horror;

    (This method tries to create a connection between an opponent's propaganda and horrific events. (For example when a minority is being arrested by the police and one attempts to create a connection with past unjust actions)

  • The Big Lie ("The great masses will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one" ~Adolph Hitler)
  • Creating a culture of fear.
  • Indoctrination
  • Propaganda

"Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen." ~Albert Einstein

"A person does not have to be behind bars to be a prisoner.
People can be prisoners of their own concepts and ideas. They
can be slaves to their own selves." – Maharaji

As the old paradigm is fading and the new emerging paradigm is accounting for even greater penetration into mass consciousness; we are observing new movements and an awakening within the general Earth population.

Mass Awakening

These moments and movements, fostered through evolving consciousness coupled with the internet and other technologies that are the Telecommunications Earth Grid. (a world-wide intercommunication grid; essentially allowing commerce, communication and collaborations to flourish). This, in turn, allows movements to 'express the vision' to  a larger world-wide following as well as to quicken the organization aspect of any serious movement.

Our world has most recently experienced this effect in the freedom movements within Egypt, Libya, Syria and many others over our globe. The grid played an integral part in those transformational movements from totalitarian to evolving democratic systems of governance.

The leaders, visionaries, individuals; all awakening to deeper perceptions through mutual alignment with both an emerging awareness and a focus on trusting the inner-guidance matrix (intuition) we all possess!

"If you change the way you look at things; the things you look at change."
~Wayne Dyer

Your unauthentic perceptions prejudice your worldview; by distorting your lenses of awareness. These distortions negatively impact upon both your self-view and your relationship with the natural alignment with God/Source Energy.   To the degree you are out of vibrational alignment with your source; to that degree will your happiness and peace of mind be frustrated.

"Authentic happiness involves living a life full of appreciation - being mindful of each and every moment - and passionately pursuing knowledge, friendships, health and career goals."

~Dr. Martin Seligman 

As you embrace your authentic self you will discover your true resonance frequency signature your perceptional awareness will transform the way you see yourself and your relationship with all that is.

Look within to align with your Higher Self as you discover;

(from author Jared Acres http://www.youtube.com/user/JaredAkers?feature=watch)

As always; life offers you a banquet of choices that surface within the countless relationships with which you are aligned through your unique energy signature. This vibrational signature or coupling  (which is configured by the combination of your thoughts and emotions and the degree to which you are operating with a reactive or reflective individual matrix program) is defining your moment-to-moment experience.

Proactive change works best within a loving and nurturing environment; one of your own creation that reflects the values you aspire to live by.

"Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf. " ~Jonatan Mårtensson

 To fully cooperate with the divine awakening you need to make choices that support your enhanced alignment with your authentic self; to 'surf the emotional waves' of the emerging light-filled paradigm.

What I believe you will discover is that you are

Natures Greatest Miracle!!!

Light & Love,
