HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

 

Dear Friends,

 

FREEDOM is the prerequisite of lasting LOVE and HAPPINESS…

 

With the traditional occasion of Thanksgiving, we may choose to understand it’s meaning from an esoteric perspective that permeates down to our physical reality and existence…

 

Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious traditions, but today is celebrated in a more secular manner…

 

Prayers of thanks and special thanksgiving ceremonies are common among almost all religions after harvests and at other times. The holiday's history in North America is rooted in English traditions dating from the Protestant Reform. It is also a ceremony thanking God for being saved from other natural calamities and wars…

 

But whether as a religious ceremony, or a secular one, Thanksgiving is a form of giving, rather than receiving…And physical gift offerings are just the immediate visible manifestation of the Highest within us and everywhere… And miraculously, when we give we receive ten-fold…

 

Giving is loving each other without condition… It unites us into the ONENESS we are through our Highest within and without, whether we call It: God, Higher Power, Numerical Order, or Mother Nature…

 

In Hebrew, the initial language of the Book of Books, ONENESS is SHALOM…

 

SHALOM comes from the root SH, L, M, used as a verb—To Complete…Used as a noun---Complete, Integral, Whole, Oneness…and all lead to PEACE…

 

Thus, the most common meaning of SHALOM is PEACE…

 

Contrary-wise, receiving for oneself alone, selfishly, egotistically, is based on making giving by ourselves to others conditional…

 

Namely, I love you if you love me, I’m nice with you if you are nice to me, I hate you if you hate me…

 

Under these circumstances, receiving results in separation, rather than ONENESS, SHALOM,

PEACE…

 

LOVE and HAPPINESS, we all are looking to achieve, cannot last at the expense of others…We cannot enjoy them without the LOVE and HAPPINESS of the WHOLE, thus, in ONENESS AND PEACE..

 

And we’ve arrived now at the meaning of thanking God within and in each of us, during this festival of Thanksgiving…IT IS FREEDOM…

 

Symbolically, Moses freed not only the Israelites’ souls from the bandage, from slavery, but the OVERSOUL of all humanity…

 

FREEDOM applies in all our walks of life, whether it is a meaningful relationship between lovers, our line of work, socially, recreation-wise and spiritually…Freedom of Choice, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Opinion, etc.,…

 

However, Freedom does not imply anarchy, but democratic process, in which the rights of all are respected… That’s why, while retaining our identity and specific contribution to society, our pursuit of LOVE and HAPPINESS should derive from the good of the WHOLE…

 

Yes, my dear friends, as I mentioned in the beginning, FREEDOM is the prerequisite for lasting LOVE and HAPPINESS…

 

THANKS A MILLION MY DEAR FRIENDS, AND HAVE A VERY HAPPY AND JOYOUS THANKSGIVING!

 

LOVE AND LIGHT,

 

Adrian
