Releasing unforgiveness, I make space for intentional gratitude. I regard each person as a unique expression of the Divine and I honor the sacredness in all beings. I recognize and respect the divine in myself. I acknowledge God’s indwelling love as the source of my joy. Deep gratitude fills my heart and mind.

Theme for November: Grateful Heart -A grateful heart keeps me consciously united with God. In this realization of my Oneness with Divine Life, Love, and Wisdom, I live in a world filled with bountiful blessings and I am a blessing to the world.

Thanksgiving provides us an opportunity to evaluate our own gratitude practice, to attempt gratitude even when we feel hurt or heartbroken, and to try and tilt our heads, skew our perspective, and look at the world through a lens of abundance. Gratitude has been a spiritual practice of mine since age 3. My gratitude for this practice is inexpressible.

There are many confusing passages in the Bible. Consider Exodus 3:14: God said to Moses, “I am who I am”. Using the core Unity principles, you know that you are an expression of God. As an expression of God that simple phrase “I am” applies to you. How will you complete the sentence, “I am ____”?
