Everything Old Is New Again

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die, so, let us all be thankful.

Buddhist Quote


Being thankful?
Accentuating the positive?

Hmmm.  I wonder what that sounds like?
Perhaps one of the key ingredients of Law of Attraction?

Everything old is new again, right?  I always find it fascinating when I discover a world view that has been melded into something new such as this Buddhist sentiment of being thankful being incorporated in Law of Attraction.

This further proves my point that everything is connected.  If you look back at history, you can find examples of the connectedness of nature, of humanity, of the world in general.

All religions want the same thing:
To find peace in our time.
To create joy in living.
To be thankful.

We all communicate with the same God.  So why is there so much conflict brought on by religion?  Is that what our God wants?  Not according to the world’s religions.  If you really explore the world religion’s tenets what they say is:
We want peace
We want you to be filled with spirit and we want you to carry that message forward.

I like the passage in Monday’s column Law of Attraction is Universal where Abraham-Hicks says:
We would not spend any time trying to convince anybody of anything because if they’re not asking, your answers are just irritating.

This seems the perfect way to live our lives.

Why cause conflict when we can make peace?
Why be angry when we can be joyful?
Why not be thankful?
Why not find the positive?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

  1. Your final paragraph — PERFECT.
    As always, thank you!!!

  2. Blessed are the peacemakers; joy comes in the morning; in all things, give thanks; Thy will be done . . . some paraphrases for your last paragraph, my friend. This is a truly inspiring post!
    Blessings!

  3. Some great questions Chris! Why indeed? We should cultivate our own relationship with God and allow the love that bursts forth within us because of it to spill out to others. There’s no need to preach or to tell others they are wrong. God, in all religions, wants us all to be instruments of peace, and that inspires others to seek out the source of peace that we ourselves have found. If it’s by another path, what do we care really? All paths lead to the same destination.

    Hope you are well.

    ~ love and blessings 🙂

  4. Yes, I am thankful for everything…I have everything that I need and a lot of what I want.
