It is one day in a year to celebrate abundance of life. Abundance does not necessarily mean material abundance. Spiritual abundance gives more weight when you feel the unlimited peace within.
But why do we feel stress on Thanksgiving?
It is the overwhelming desire to please everyone. It is the mindset that the only way to celebrate Thanksgiving is having abundant food on the table which causes stress and tiredness in our body.
It is the high level of expectations to serve our family and guests with perfect meal.
Being conscious in the true meaning of Thanksgiving prepare us physically, mentally and spiritually to slow down, enjoy the moment and remember that the true meaning of Thanksgiving is the blessings of spiritual abundance.
I believe it is having the profound peace while embracing the moment of happiness. By detaching us from the abundance of stuff, we will be able to see and feel the abundance in spirit.
The late Wayne Dyer once said: “Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.”
