Gratitude Sunday ✨


The world can be a scary place, but there’s no reason for it to be. The best way to manage your anxiety is by focusing on the good things that are happening in your life and being grateful for them.

Just say “thank you” all the time. You say it to your family, friends, co-workers, and even strangers. And why shouldn’t you?

Saying “thank you” to someone can be a great way to make them feel appreciated or acknowledged.

Saying “thank you” to everything shows gratitude for its usefulness or helpfulness in making life easier or more enjoyable.

Saying “thank you” to life means saying thanks for everything in it—the good things and the bad things—because without either there would be nothing at all!

But did you know that there are even more ways to express your gratitude?

Here are just a few:

◦ Always count your blessings.

You know how much you have to be grateful for, and you make a point of reminding yourself regularly that you are blessed. Whether it be because of your family, health or friends, you are grateful for what you have been given in life.

It’s helpful to keep on top of gratitude with daily rituals so that each day can be as positive as possible. There will always be things in life which aren’t quite perfect but there’s no point getting down about them because they can all change overnight!

◦ Find the good in things and people.

Begin to notice and focus on the good in things, people, situations. When you look at the bright side of things, it easier to be optimistic about life. This is not only a positive trait, but also a useful skill that can help you see things in an objective way. When you know what is going on around you, whether it’s at home or at work, then there’s no need to be stressed out about anything!

You never focus on what you lack; instead, you choose to be happy with what you have.

Don’t compare yourself to others.

Don’t worry about what might happen in the future.

Don’t worry about what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Forgive, forget, move on!

This applies FIRST to YOURSELF. When you can do that, the rest will most likely just fade away.

◦ Be optimistic about all aspects of life.

◦ Don’t be afraid to try new things.

◦ Don’t be afraid to fail.

◦ Don’t be afraid to be yourself.

◦ Don’t be afraid to be different.

◦ Don’t be afraid to take risks, even if you think it’s a “crazy” risk that won’t work out the way you want, or if there is a chance of failure or embarrassment involved in taking action (even if it might seem like a small chance).

◦ Ask for help when needed and accept it graciously when offered, even from someone who may seem untrustworthy or unreliable at first glance (i.e., an unexpected source).

◦ Be grateful for everything—even the little things.

It’s easy to get caught up in your day-to-day life, but take time daily to stop and remember what you are grateful for.

Being grateful makes you happier, healthier, and more productive at work, so why wouldn’t you want to do this every day?

Be kind to people for no apparent reason. It feels good to be kind to others. It makes their day, and this could change someone’s life. You’ll feel better about yourself when you’re kind to others. Even in the worst situations, look at things with the positive vibe of kindness.

And finally, just be still. Sit in silence and see ALL these things as good things because they make life interesting and exciting! Because without challenges we wouldn’t grow as people…BORING!

Final Thoughts

Remembering to be grateful is not only good for your mental health, it can also help you live a more fulfilling life. When you focus on what you have rather than what you lack, it can make all the difference in how happy and contented you feel on a daily basis. If you want to take this even further, try practicing gratitude meditation—it’s one of the best ways to get in touch with those feelings!

The Peep-Hole Principle

eye of horus

You are God

What the hell does that mean? Well, let me explain.

Everything that IS, all that EXISTS, ALL came from a single point of light. You can compare this to a zygote. A zygote is a single cell, capable of dividing asexually, and creating identical offspring.

This single point of light did just that – it divided into two identical points of light.

Being that the original point of light contained all things – ‘all that is’; when it split into two, both contained ‘all that is’ – after all, they ARE identical.

The light continued to divide and multiply exponentially; each new point of light containing ‘all that is’.

The light rejoiced and played and danced.

Within the light of ‘all that is’, lies the potentiality for all things. From the growing light, gasses formed and became dense, creating the ENTIRE Cosmos – all made of these points of light, which ARE the ENTIRETY of ‘all that is’.

As the gasses become denser, they birth stars. The stars are alive; they live and they die. But in their death/renewal, they give birth to brand new THINGS. Planets are formed and begin to orbit their stars – just like protons orbit their nuclei.

The light choreographs the dance of the planets around their suns; the dew on the morning grass; the orbit of every electron around every nucleus in every atom – all in perfect balance and harmony, creating the ebb and flow of the Cosmos.

The light plays and dances. When the light dims it then renews itself in form and function – CONTINUOUSLY. This cycle is eternal, just as the light of ‘all that is’ is eternal.

Although the light is all-knowing, all awareness, ‘all that is’; exactly what has its playing and dancing created? Well…EVERYTHING…and NOTHING, really.

The light just IS.

As the light plays, dances, and creates, it drives the eternal cycles of birth, growth, decay, death, and re-birth – each time, more complex systems are born.

As planets cool and orbits stabilize, balance and harmony emerge.

Perfect balance and harmony spread throughout the entire Cosmos. Through this balance and harmony, more complex and diverse combinations of elements are possible.

The light rejoiced and continued to play and dance and create.

Throughout the Cosmos, new forms of life began to emerge.

The light rejoiced at this and continued playing. The more it played, the more complex it’s creations.

The light, being ‘all that is’, made each and every THING in the Cosmos after its OWN image and of ITSELF. The more it GAVE the more it BECAME.

The light rejoiced and continued playing. The more it played, the more it created; cycle upon cycle.

The light rejoiced.

As the light played and danced and created, a strange thing happened. A NEW light began to emerge WITHIN the light of ‘all that is’. What was this NEW light? This new light was CONSCIOUSNESS.

The light of ‘all that is’ became SELF aware. The light could see ITSELF!


Throughout the Cosmos, tiny peep-holes were opening. The light could look upon itself and see pieces of its WHOLE.

All CREATIONS of the light of ‘all that is’, throughout the entire Cosmos, are alive; because the light of ‘all that is’ is alive.

All things CAME from the single point of light of ‘all that is’. ALL IS ONE AND ONE IS ALL. There can be NO other way.

How the Peep-Hole Principle Applies to Humanity


As humans, we are born of the light. As zygotes we begin to split and divide and BECOME – just like the original point of light.

We are born and another peep-hole opens. From here the light can see itself as it truly is; joyful, playful – unconditional love; in perfect balance and harmony within and without.

As children, we are taught THINGS. Each THING represents a lens or filter, which is placed on our peep-hole.

As we mature, learn, and change, the lenses and filters are constantly added to, adjusted, or removed. In our every thought, every experience, every moment – constant change. These changes represent OUR own unique view of ourselves and everything we know. We ebb and flow with the COSMOS because of these perspective changes.

Our perspectives and beliefs are formed by our experiences. Our experiences are rationalized and understood through OUR Peep-hole lenses and filters. These lenses and filters are passed to us from our parents, teachers, religions, countries, governments, etc.

WE must decide which lenses and filters WE adopt and install on OUR peep-hole. What we then see is our perspective. This ‘perspective’ becomes our beliefs. Our beliefs become our reality.

FullSizeRenderken keys quote

Far too often, as children, lenses and filters are installed without our conscious knowledge. As adults, we must take the time to REALLY examine them, question them; test their TRUTH. If we don’t, we are oblivious to their influence over US.

The light rejoices.

Now, the light of ‘all that is’, can see itself through an infinite number of peep-holes, each with its own unique view.

The light plays, dances, and creates.

The Illusion of Time


Up to this point, the events described are in a rather linear timeline, if you will. The TRUTH is that at the moment the original point light of ‘all that is’ split, everything BECAME. Everything WAS – in that single moment.

That moment, called the NOW, is truly all that exists. There is no past, no future, nothing but the NOW. The NOW was born of a single point of perfect, joyful, playful, unconditional love; the light of ‘all that is’.

The NOW is like the newborn baby, untarnished, loving, and pure…PERFECT.

When we are born, the possibilities of OUR each and every NOW are limitless and unbounded. Our peep-holes are without filter or lenses. Then as we grow, our experiences birth our beliefs and we start installing our lenses and filters.

It is our EXPERIENCES that we view as the past. Experience is but a teacher; of pleasure and pain, of joy and sorrow, of good and bad, of right and wrong. We also learn guilt, shame, fear, and self-worth. Depending on your lenses and filters, YOUR past can be a blessing or a curse.

Our desires, hopes, and dreams form our VISION of the future. Our EXPERIENCES again birth expectations of what OUR future will be if we do this…or if we do that…

Both the past and future are ILLUSIONS. It is our lenses and filters that convince us they are real.

There is only the NOW.

From OUR perspective, time must exist. We need it to help understand, rationalize, and hold on to what we see through our peep-hole.

Our senses allow us to see, hear, smell, taste, and touch the world around us. Our perspectives and beliefs tell us what we find.

The more lenses and filters we have installed, the more we suffer. The more we block the ONENESS OF THE LIGHT of ‘all that is’, the more we live from a place of fear.

Examine your filters and lenses. Do this by re-examining what you believe and what you KNOW.

Rip apart your beliefs, turn them inside out, stretch them, twist them, burn them, and cut them into tiny pieces. Do this often. Throw away the pieces that fail the test of TRUTH – rebuild from what’s left. Only YOU can do this…it’s YOUR peep-hole.

As lenses and filters are examined in this way, you’ll find that many of them no longer serve your highest good. The more you discard, the more you see the TRUE light of ‘all that is’. In this way you can more fully live…in the NOW.

What Does All of This Really Mean?


It means, my dear brothers and sisters, that WE have free access to the NOW…always. What you do with it is up to you…

You can start by examining your lenses and filters. Question them, test them, adjust or remove them. You, ONLY YOU, can discover what is TRUTH, and what is FEAR-based.

Adjust the view from your peep-hole and your beliefs and perspective change – and that changes EVERYTHING.

Keep the truth and discard the fear. Send the fear back to the light of ‘all that is’ with unconditional love.

And the LIGHT Rejoiced!

As the light saw itself through each peep-hole, it rejoiced at itself.

It matters not to the light of ‘all that is’, what it sees. Each peep-hole, no matter the view, is perfect. It is a unique and different look at itself. The light of ‘all that is’ doesn’t judge, compare, or favor one view over another…the light just IS.

WE, the peep-hole keepers, or PEOPLE, for short, reflect back the image of the light of ‘all that is’ onto OURSELVES.
