Day Thirty – Forever Thankful

posted by Melanie Lutz

Thanks God for everything!   As Meister Eckhart says “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.”

Thanks be for everyone, everywhere.

Thank you to all who contribute their time and attention and energies to the spirit of our collective connection.

The gifts you have so graciously given are deeply appreciated.

Thank you for all your loving thoughts and Thank you for extending that experience of grace through you with each breath you take.

In short.  Thank you.

May Love land in the deepest spaces of your truest self and may the lightest touch of peace awaken all to your call.

With infinite Love and Gratitude…

Melanie

The book told through a series of letters The Color Purple written by Alice Walker was reformed as a brilliant movie directed by Steven Spielberg and then into a blockbuster Broadway show.  The book starts with the lead character writing a letter to a God outside of herself not understanding why God is not listening to her and moves through a beautiful story of the birth of a soul, ending with a letter to a God within her, and everything she sees, marking the shift in her faith and deeper understanding of the mystery of source.

This idea is powerfully translated in the below song from Broadway Show.

“Dear God, Dear Stars, Dear Trees, Dear Sky, Dear People, Dear Everything…. Dear God.
God is inside of me and everything else, that was or ever will be.”

The most impactful thing about the days and months and years after September 11th for me was listening to the experience of our nation's children.  I heard so many kids explaining what the day meant to them and what their plans were to help make the world a better place.  One thing was clear.  It
