THANKSGIVING EVERYDAY!

Hello, Dear Parent Friends of the Web! 

Here is a touch of my wisdom... to make a difference in the tapestry of life. 




GIVING THANKS FOR ALL THAT IS…AND FOR ALL THAT WILL EVER BE..
GROUNDED IN LOVE!



Gratitude for LIFE!

I remain humbled today, and every day, that I am able to livebreathing, speaking, and loving life—while moving freely!

I marvel at the fact that I am able to stand, walk, bend, twist, skip, hop, bounce, or run as I wish—in my own capacity!

I cherish the moments when I can sit, stretch myself flat, or lie down to rest.


I am thankful to be bestowed, uniquely, with other natural gifts of life—to sing or dance in rhythmic momentum through time-sensitive opportunity.


I humbly accept whatever life presents through every passing moment—sublimely teaching me the lessons to be learned to my utmost perfection—testing my patience, tolerance, forgiveness, forbearance, and benevolent compassion.


Gratitude for the Unifying Principles of the Universe

I am filled with gratitude for being able to nourish my body with Mother Earth's supple and bountiful offerings of unconditional LOVEfor all of LIFE—by way of fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and legumes, infused with rainbow energy!


It is my highest aspiration not to find self-gratification by causing ill-will upon other beings of sentience—for I have come to realize that other's happiness is my happiness and vice versa—in keeping with the inscrutable universal principle of 'equality and reciprocity' that prevails, infinitely.


I solemnly accept the peaceful presence of the four magnanimous wonders (of earth, water, fire, and air) when they interactively present each moment, as the UNIVERSE of experience—quite contrary to their wrathful manifestations when it is time to remind and heal us humanity of our ONENESS that transcends all mental constructs, by way of distinctions and differentiations!


I am mesmerized knowing that I am sustained in body and mind by these exalted energies—in the form of solidity, fluidity, motility and warmth—physically and physiologically, as well as mentally (by attitude), and psychologically, (by temperament).


Gratitude for Being 'Who I Am' in BODY, MIND, and SPIRIT!


I remain in mindfulness, always, with implicit respect for my sensory body, while guarding the windows of my mind—my sense-bases—from the bombardment of toxic external stimuli. I vow silently to be non-reactive, but rather, being responsive to all adversitiesenvironmentally, and all adversaries and negative influences—socially.

My heart is caressed, from one moment to the next, when I read, write, and reflect upon my purpose in lifein addition to nourishing and nurturing my intellect with peaceful mental stimulation to its ultimate potential.

I feel overjoyed when I consciously emulate an altruistic attitude in my thoughts, words, and deeds—aspiring to offer my best to fellow beings who may appreciate or seek my support.


I value my ability to express my thoughts meaningfullyas a help to lifewith my prehensile aptitudes and artistic talents!


I do my utmost never to take life for granted while am fully aware that I am an indispensable filament of vibration in the vast and inconceivable cosmic symphonic ballet—of interconnectedness, interdependence, and interpenetration. 


'How may I make a healthy difference in the Great Dance of LIFE?' is my voice, in silence and solitude, for I am fully aware that I am deeply responsible for the happiness of the 'WHOLE' of ONENESSof SELFLESSNESSas opposed to gratifying my selfish desires.


I dwell in contemplation and introspection through each infinite moment, realizing the precious nature of my very 'being and becoming' that intersects with all aspects of life—as they continually remain in mutual causality. As a mortal, I recognize that I must succumb to 'the forces of conditioning' brought to bear by the latent accumulations of thought, word, and deed—effected both individually and collectively.

Gratitude to My Family



I pay homage, day and night, to my dearly beloved parentsDionicious and Mildred Gunawardenawho lived their lifetimes epitomizing 'the wisdom of selflessness' and 'altruistic compassion'. Ialong with my siblings, spouse, and childrenfeel truly blessed to be their natural continuations aspiring to bring out the best of our cultural and spiritual heritage—by way of thought, word, and deed. I treasure these precious members of my family for their gentle dispositions, aptitudes, talents, and altruistically-oriented aspirations.


I am also grateful for other kindred beings who have intersected with my life—in one way or anotheras my extended family.

Gratitude to My Human Family


I remain in wonder and awe for my beautiful human family of kaleidoscopic diversity and multiplicityby way of appearancesupon the ground of UNITY, or ONE ESSENCE. 

Succinctly expressed, I have come to recognize that our human experiencesas joys and rejoices, trials and tribulations, successes and failuresare none other than being the consequences we perpetually bring to bear by the choices we make by our thoughts, words, and deeds, of limited, imprudent perception.

While I understand that the universe is 'whole and complete' in the momentuntainted by subjectivity and associated viewsit bears the potential to illumine LIFE with UNCONDITIONALITY and ALL-ENCOMPASSING EQUALITY.

To embrace my deep interconnectedness with all of humanity is my own personal awakening; it is my conviction that groping in the darkness of 'separateness' is to be blinded by fundamental ignorance that is self-affirming and self-depreciating. 

Gratitude to My Sentient Family


I extend my loving kindness and altruistic compassion to all beings of conditioned sentience that inhabit the cosmos—human or otherwise, large or small, powerful or weak, visible or invisible—each of which wields an oar in one way, or another, to live its sublime universal purpose being engaged collaboratively to steer the web of LIFE to infinity.

As a human, from a spiritual vantage point—surpassing the limits of my selfish intellect—I hold every precious sentient 'form' or 'pulsation' very dear to my heart knowing that we, together, are indispensably linked by the sole breath of LOVE.


It is my recognition that LOVE is SELFLESS, OMNISCIENT and ALL-TRANSCENDENT. LOVE veiled by subjective attitudes as diverse forms of selfish love—biological love, lustful love, instinctual love, and so on—inhibits dim-witted mortals from seeing ULTIMATE TRUTH and REALITY that transcends self-focused walls of mind.

Gratitude to the Environment 



I look upon the environment—as 'the here' and 'the now' within the global tapestry of LOVEas my extended sensory body of manifestation reflecting the aura of its partakers. As to how I am continually influenced by the environment rests upon the nature of my viewing apparatus, as well as the quality of attention I give to it, to the best of my human potentialwith deep reverence and responsibility.

In keeping with the ever-prevalent and reigning Moral Principle of the Universeof WISDOM AND COMPASSION—nature incessantly flexes its muscles of 'selfless magnanimity and wonder' awakening us with 'lessons of healing' when spiritual deterioration and degeneration persists. It is my passionate desire to cultivate my higher mindwith mindfulness—being benevolently charitable to my extended body, the environment, unadulterated by exploitative abuse of it.

 Serving My Human Purpose on Earth

It is my highest realization that my human time on Earth is just 'a speck' along the course towards infinity. The 'I' and 'mine' that I seemingly cherish as 'body and mind' withers away irrevocably through the unfolding phases—of material origination, evolution, decline, and dissolution. I may only aspire to be 'full' with cultivated virtuosity and 'useful' to all other fellow beings on Earth with my benevolent heart—shaping the course of my destinyharmonized by LOVE.

All the many roles I play as 'son or daughter', 'father or mother', 'brother or sister', 'friend or acquaintance', and all the many vestures I assume in lifeprofessionally or occupationally—are simply put, lessons of sublime healing to bring me home to my primordial nature of SELFLESSNESS. Be that as it may, I do my best to live my human purpose on EARTH with benevolent COMPASSION.

 Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.
