Begin a Gratitude Practice to Carry You through Uncertain Times
Begin a Gratitude Practice to Carry You through Uncertain Times Master Djwhal Khul through Kathlyn Kingdon
Beloved students, I greet you once again with love and offer my gratitude for your attention as we embark on yet another teaching. May you be blessed with inner peace this month, and may it sustain you as the year’s end approaches. As November dawns, let us come together in a celebration of gratitude. In the United States, this is the month of Thanksgiving, and Canadians celebrated the holiday in October. This effectively allows for a two-month season of gratitude in North America.
Those of you who have followed my writings over the past several years probably recall that, of all the holidays celebrated in the West, I am particularly fond of Thanksgiving. It is unique among national holidays in that it spans the entire range of spiritual, religious, and societal practices. I invite you to make it more than one day this year. Remember, you will never again experience November 2015. When you get to the last day of the month, you will have used up all its possibilities. Let your gratefulness this year vibrate across the continent and around the world.
I was recently communing with a student who, depressed at the time, felt he had nothing in his life for which he could be thankful or get excited. Stimulating thoughts about the fact that he was alive, healthy, and had a good job and a sweet family did not shift his mood. Indeed, his mind was set on being depressed, and in that moment, he simply could not consider being otherwise. In an offer of loving support, I surrounded him in a beautiful blanket of grace. Unfortunately, he remained encapsulated in his mental state and could not take advantage of the gift.
