A Poem Of Gratitude

By Chuck Danes

I share my debt of gratitude with all my global friends
Whether Christians, Muslims, Jews and yes, a few are Buddhist Zens
Regardless of the place we live or where our faith's begun
My gratitude begins with this, "I KNOW that we are One"

I'm grateful for the many days when clarity is strong
As well as those it "seems" that life does it's best to prove me wrong
For it's those times that stir my soul, keep me looking toward the light
Till once again my hopes and dreams are clearly back in sight

I'm grateful for the love within ALL circles that I dwell
For family, friends and those who'd try to make life a living hell
For each of those have taught me more, regarding how to Love
Which let's me share with you each day, these things that I write of

I'm grateful for the right to dream, to hope, to wish, and KNOW
That all our thoughts are merely seeds, which due to Love MUST grow
And if I'll think mine consciously and nurture them with care
These visions held, my hearts desires, will provide yet more to share

I'm grateful for the fact I've learned, we can consciously create
That to mold and shape a life desired, I must keep my thinking straight
That when the fear which shows it's head, that stems from false belief
I have free will to shift those thoughts, to those that bring relief

I'm grateful too for false beliefs which led me on my quest
For mentors met along the way I truly do feel blessed
They clearly showed me of the need to understand my worth
and "Higher Truth" which can provide a life divine on earth

I'm grateful too for fear I feel at times because I KNOW
That when it's felt it's purging power exists to help me grow
The awareness of it's presence shows there's something more to learn
It reminds me to stay fixed on Love to attract these things I yearn

I'm both grateful for the joy I feel, as well as for the fear
KNOWING what it truly is, my choices draw me nearer
To the life I know is waiting on it's other side
So when it comes I just hold fast and use it as a guide

My gratitude goes deeper still, for breath, for sight, for life
For all who've shown me that my "thoughts", indeed create my strife
I'm grateful for The Perfect Plan which draws what we receive
It draws to us a mirror of self, reveals what we believe

Aligning that with Highest Truth provides us with a way
To live the life which we desire if on the path we'll stay
I'm grateful for the right to choose and keep my focus on
What's truly good and serves us all, that's where my heart is drawn

I'm grateful too for nature, the birds the grass, the trees
The lakes which hold abundant life, a summer evenings breeze
The clouds above the ground below, the moon, the stars, the sun
Both days and nights which represent that another day is done

I'm grateful for the time to spend to deeply go within
To tap into the Source of Truth that's sure to help me win
For it is there that Truth comes through, regardless what is taught
In man made circles of the world that form restrictive thought

I'm grateful for all wisdom gained, as I journey through this life
Like words expressed in anger hurt, and only lead to strife
That truth will stand the test of time, that Love will lead the way
That thoughts and feelings of the past are what create today

I've learned to stay in gratitude no matter how things seem
That perceptions held as negatives will only slow your dream
So even though my path will lead through troubled spots I know
I must keep on, keep focus fixed, on life's abundant flow

I'm grateful too for you my friend who's reading this today
For the bond that we have formed, that your path has led my way
For the future, all it brings, for all we have to share
The giving of ourselves to show the world how much we care

There's so VERY much I'm grateful for, though sometimes I'll forget
Beliefs rekindled from the past that I perceive as threats
But it's these times I must remind myself of what I KNOW
That when they show their presence, that they're here to help me grow

One final thought I'll share today before I say I'm through
I'm so grateful for these words to share today to all of you
It is my wish that they will help you keep the attitude
Which leads to that which you desire and comes through gratitude

Here's wishing YOU the Most Joyful and Amazing Thanksgiving Day, today and EVERY Day whatever the day represents, aside from
what it might mean to you (or not mean) and regardless of where in the world you are.

Wherever that is, it's my hope and wish that you're there and personally witnessing the Power of Gratitude...regardless.

Thank You from my heart to yours for being
such a meaningful part of my journey
