Gratitude - Day 29

Affinity Through Gratitude

For the next cycle, we will be moving through the global aspects of Gratitude - those that have direct effect on the whole, while being Universally personal.

Our gathering has been daily connecting with the power, promise, essence and message of Gratitude while re-creating patterns within the Self.

Recreating these patterns allows our collective consciousness to tap into a growing flow of Love and Gratitude, aiding quick shifts into empowering paradigms that serve now with grace and ease.

We've also extended our Gratitudinal connections beyond
the Self to our community - enlarging our affinity range.

What is an affinity range?

Mirriam-Webster defines Affinity as "A relation between biological groups involving resemblance in structural plan and indicating a common origin".

So our
affinity range is the depth, distance, and degree
of connection to the Divine plan and our common origins.

As we recognize the resemblance between ourselves, and
the world around us, our Gratitude begins to accelerate as Intelligent change-in-motion -- extending our affinity for all creation, opening opportunities for recognition of commonalities, releasing the illusion of separation while creating mass identification as One Source, One Love, One You and One Me, too -- all gathered in the name of Gratitude.


Just for today:
Let's g
ive thanks for the courage to choose a new path --
remembering together we are better, as we co-create a World of Love and Gratitude.


"God is revealed in all Creation. We humans belong to the whole interdependent community of life on earth. Rejoice in the beauty, complexity and mystery of creation, with gratitude to be part of its unfolding.

Take time to learn how this community of life is organized and how it interacts. Live according to principles of right relationship and right action within this larger whole.

Be aware of the influence humans have on the health and viability of life on earth. Call attention to what fosters or harms earth's exquisite beauty, balances and interdependencies. Guided by Spirit, work to translate this understanding into ways of living that reflect our responsibility to one another, to the greater community of life, and to future generations."
