With the power to delight – and disturb – life can be volatile. One of the best ways to harness life is to appreciate it in all its various aspects. Remembering to be grateful for what we have is often a way to have more reasons to be grateful.
Life has a way of limiting our additional reasons to be grateful, when we are too seldom thankful for the life we do have.
While becoming ever more cognizant of the many ways our world is under attack by dark forces, please try to balance that knowledge with thankfulness for your new understandings and for all the other reasons we should be grateful: Our loved ones, like-minded beings, our pets, shelter, food, water, sleep, and for every breath we draw.
In short, should we not be grateful for the very life that still beats in our chests?
Can gratefulness continue after our throb of life ceases? Certainly, if we intend it to be so, as gratefulness, akin to love, is one of the most powerful forces in existence.
Please try it and find that truth for yourself: Be grateful, no matter how paltry your current life may seem to be.
Become more fully alive with the joy of gratitude.
Former Hollywood producer of live stage shows that featured various movie and TV stars. In Los Angeles for almost a quarter of a century, Jack had a front-row seat in observing the disintegration of the foundations of American society before he retreated to the woods of New Hampshire.
A graduate of the University of Florida, where he studied economics, Jack was also a running back on the Gator scout team, a member of the ATO social fraternity, Cadet Commander of the school’s ROTC unit, and president of the military honorary society, Scabbard, and Blade.
After serving honorably in the US Army, where Jack earned his paratrooper wings, he began to see the folly and crimes attendant to the unilateral wars of American aggression. It was then that Jack embarked on a spiritual path; one he has walked for over 40 years. Content with his sylvan seclusion, Jack began writing of how to spot media propaganda; something he meant to be his legacy to his three grown children.
Today, however, Jack invites all others to read his non-partisan observations of national and international events. According to Jack… Those of us stuck deeply into the engineered left-right paradigm have no desire to be objective, and are thus blinded to all truth that does not reinforce biased opinions.
Remedial work in geo-politics will not open the minds of such people, as they are badly in need of spiritual remedies; nevertheless, facts are facts, and some are available to truth-seekers, the subject matter of my writings.”
