THANKSGIVINGThe wisdom from facebook. I copied these two postings and want to share them with my readers as well as they are both lessons I have learned along the way. The first one will come evident as you visit different countries and get to know people living completely differnet lifes than you, often with few if any possessions and living in substance conditions yet the happiest most generouse and loving people you have ever encountered. What becomes evident as you anchor you luxury yacht in front of a small village of bamboo shacks and dugout canoes is that it is they that have figured it out not you. They live in harmoney, they have everything they need and do not yearn for things they do not need, they are the generous ones as when they share it is sharing from the core of their world not the excess. We come to these places with the idea that they all want to be us and leave wanting to be them.
For me this was not a sudden change, it took the small things to open my eyes, the “pile of garbage” the kid’s smile, the pony cart ride and such. Each day some small thing happens to open my eyes more to how wonderful this life really is. Pay attention to the small signs that lead to the right path I have been told. So today on Thanksgiving I have an immeasurable amount to be thankful for. I am humbled by the goodness in the world and truly in awe.
The crew of Furthur wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
