Gratitude John Cali
Over years, Joseph has spoken often about gratitude, and wonders it can create in our lives. In USA this week we celebrate a day called Thanksgiving. A day of giving thanks for all blessings in our lives. A day for expressing gratitude.
Joseph and I wrote this newsletter many years ago. But it’s never lost its timeliness, especially at this season of year. And especially at this time in our human and planetary evolution.
I wish you all a most blessed and happy Thanksgiving, whether you’re in USA or another country. We all have much to be thankful for, even in world’s current state of affairs. So let us focus on all good in our lives, especially during this holiday season.
There are many souls incarnated on earth plane who appear to be struggling with attracting into their lives barest, most basic necessities of physical survival. Abundance on all, or at least many, levels seems to elude them. And many of these souls often wonder why. Why them? Why is life such a struggle? Why can they not have more in their lives, more joy, more peace, more love, more money? More of all forms of abundance?
Now you've heard it said you create your own reality. And this is true. All of you create your own realities, your own experiences, every aspect of your experiences on earth plane. However, even in knowing that, you may find little comfort or solace.
And yet it does not have to be this way. Abundance, in all forms, is your birthright as a child of Goddess, God. You are not only a child of God/Goddess. You are God/Goddess. You are one with God. And so this brings us back to question of why so many, even among you, lightworkers, are living lives of struggle.
You will hear, have already heard, voices telling you your “lot in life” is “God's will.” Well, that's true. The only problem is most of those uttering these words, or something similar, do not realize they are God! They are God, Goddess who has willed their own struggles, their lot in life. Simply being aware of, and accepting, that reality is very freeing. After all, truth shall set you free.
We are in no way advocating you “beat up” on yourself if you are struggling with any aspect of your life. And, of course, it is true your higher self, your soul, can and will use whatever circumstances and conditions you are experiencing at human level as “raw material,” if you will, to produce a higher good for you. Another way of saying that is: Whatever is happening in your life can and will ultimately result in your highest good.
However, your highest good does not have to come through pain and struggle. It can come to you joyfully and easily. If you are not experiencing abundance you want in your lives, it is because you are literally pushing it away from yourselves. After all, your natural state, your birthright, is abundance. You have always been provided for, even in midst of your self-created struggles, though perhaps not in exactly luxurious style to which you would love to become accustomed! But you have always been taken care of.
Think about that for a moment. Think about what you consider worst experience of your life. Even in midst of that experience, were you not provided for? Was there not someone “watching over” you? You have never been totally destitute, totally without resources, without recourse. You are, after all, divine beings, albeit in human form for a time. But still, you are Gods and Goddesses. And, as such, you have power, great power, divine power, absolute power to do, to create, to be anything you wish.
