Thanks-Living Is a Dash of the Right Attitude

By Rev. Pam MacGregor

Rev. Pam MacGregor, Pastor/Director of the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles.

Attitude is everything. To embody the season of Thanksgiving is to awaken re-evaluation of all that we have and provides us with an opportunity to practice Gratitude, Gratefulness, and Thankfulness.

An attitude of Gratitude can change everything in our lives. Gratitude’s energy is based in love, a love that can heal the unexplainable and set us free from fear so that trust is restored.

Gratefulness seems to open a heart that is closed and heals one that is broken. Aside from tangible things — our family, friends, and pets — we can be grateful for what has meaning and value in our lives. We can be grateful for a physical body that has served us and allowed our spiritual experience to unfold.

Thankfulness allows the flow of appreciation and the wisdom that comes with it. We can be thankful for our intuition, our faith, and the power and energy within us that guides us right in the face of challenges.

When we apply an attitude of Gratitude, Gratefulness, and Thankfulness to life’s lessons, we are able to grow and expand with greater ease. Life often doesn’t feel fair or just. Perhaps that is because life has yet to manifest perfectly. Regardless, we are unique beings and a perfect expression of wholeness right now! (How many of you can be grateful for that?)

If we are honest with ourselves, we can find many things to be grateful for and many blessings to count. Let’s start counting today!

Happy Thanks-Living!
