Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States.
Joy is what happens to us
when we allow ourselves to recognize
how good things really are.
~ Marianne Williamson
SERVE your God, who has come into this temple of life!
Do not act the part of a madman,
for the night is thickening fast.
He has awaited me for countless ages,
for love of me He has lost His heart:
Yet I did not know the bliss that was so near to me,
for my love was not yet awake.
But now, my Lover has made known to me
the meaning of the note that struck my ear:
Now, my good fortune is come.
Kabîr says: “Behold! how great is my good fortune!
I have received the unending caress of my Beloved!”
This Week’s Affirmation:
