Re: Thanking the universe.
You got it HC.
call it awareness, best intent, or love, you are directing your ness, which is the best you ness we know of, to the large other. Certainly a supreme postion to be in as long as we experience any sort of otherness. And the other knows of your directed intent cause you are part of the other too.
The easier than it is part is related to whether we can keep up the intention while being in the midst of what we have misslearned and accepted as being somehow unacceptable.
Thoughts may be the tip or the larger iceberg mass, but they often reveal how distant or close we are, and where much of the real work in learning, how to love really, first manifests and takes place, till we have become completely enamored, truely in love with the other, and thus all things, no matter what.
you got it HC. It is that simple. Send away, (and keep that grouchey neighbor in like mind also while your at it.)
