Also a big hug to my American friends who celebrated Thanksgiving on Thursday. I send a prayer for your country to be unified and healed soon. And with the worldwide COVID-19 scenario and all of its consequences, this has been a rough year for everyone. I really miss traveling, but, I’m very grateful for the Internet that connects us. This is my additional gratitude message for you all:

Around the world, let us embrace our humanness and appreciate our unique cultures. Let’s reach out with respect to connect with others who share our humanity. And with deep gratitude, may we all cherish the Earth that sustains and cradles us.

Gratitude is an opening of the heart; it connects us to the Light. Be of the Light, and do every thing you can, from the smallest gesture to the grandest, to spread your light. Our world sorely needs every candle in the window right now, as we find our way towards the better humanity that we can be. I know we can get there together!

Hierarchy empire,
kings and queens
in days of yore
ruled the peasants
with iron fist,
wrung the gold
from slaves’ sweat,
their inherent
birthrights stolen
away…

“That was in
ancient times,”
I hear your retort,
but no, wake up!
See the deceit,
game is in play,
want-to-be kings
shroud their decrees,
money buys power,
little pawns weep.
