We have much to be grateful for.
Firstly , the Cavs seemed to have made a series out of their contest with the Celtics. I remember being a huge fan of the Houston Rockets when Hakeem Olajuwon played for them in the 90's. It was always the Boston Celtics who gave us such a fit back in those days. I was watching a bit of the Rockets vs Warriors game recently , and they showed Hakeem on the sideline. He has grey hair , gained weight, and looked old. I thought , I must be old too! Well, we can be grateful that we do age , and eventually our bodies die. It would be awful if we never died , because we would just keep getting older . That wouldn't be much fun.
Secondly, our bodies are not us, not our true Selves.
Our real Self does not die , and it represents the energy of Spirit. The energy of Spirit is our Wholeness, and what keeps us moving forward in a positive direction, sometimes, even when we might think otherwise!
Thirdly, we have each other. Unity of Medina is a Spirit filled community, a sangha ( using a Buddhist term ) , or a place where we come together to support each other in love and share our Wholeness. ( Can you guess, I am speaking on Wholeness Sunday ? ) When we come together, we become more than we are separately. Our individual selves create synergy with our fellows and we become more than we could possibly be on our own.
Tell me what you are grateful for. I would love to hear from you. Love and blessings, Rev. John
