Full of Gratitude This Thanksgiving

On this Thanksgiving Day, I’d like to take time out to thank you for your indulgence and encouragement.

May I tell you how it benefits me?

I could easily be branded narcissistic. The Growth Movement in the 70s was labelled the “Me Generation,” as if self-awareness was somehow stuck on itself and objectionable, when Self-Knowledge is the purpose of life.

What I write here is an ethnography – as I prefer to see it – of my Ascension journey, unfoldment, or expansion, day by day.

As an individual, I’ve written more books and articles than I care to admit, created online databases, and managed a successful blog for the Company of Heaven. I’m in a splendid relationship with the love of my life. And, yes, I’ve even talked to God … on the radio! (1)

There’s nothing more out there in front of me that I want to win or achieve.

I am satisfied. I could go tomorrow and feel entirely blessed.

What that means for me as a lightworker is that I’m not after anything any more. I’m available to serve.

And I am. I’m wearing several hats at the moment, deciding, acting, over top of looking back with longing at a quiet, monkish existence.

What I do is risky. It’s busy. I would not do it if it wasn’t out there on the frontier of knowledge, where I like to be.

I also could not do it without your continued support.

If you did not support me – and, say, ridiculed me instead – I wouldn’t have the heart, the courage to go forward.

I’d be worried about how I look, whom I need to please, all kinds of dysfunctional considerations, whereas now I go forward fuelled by your encouragement.

After Cold Mountain, the group leaders joked that they were releasing jellyfish on the population. (2)

We were as tremulous and vulnerable as jellyfish, having beenthat transparent with each other.  We knew everything worth knowing about ourselves and everyone else.

Far from putting on more character armor, as Wilhelm Reich called it, we on the awareness path took off our armor – and trusted that it’d all work out.

And it did.

I’m moving away from being a bad-ass warrior type to actually being friendly, thanks to Kathleen’s pacifying influence. I feel about as nimble as a hippopotamus in a tu-tu.

To be this “out there” can be scarey.

—> I could not do it without your support. <—

Anyone thinking that they’re not doing anything while supporting what I personally am trying to create – a complete record of one Ascension – is, in my eyes, doing a great and wonderful thing. I appreciate even your thoughts and love.

On this Thanksgiving Day, I’m full of gratitude for everyone’s support, which keeps me going. Thank you!!!!
