Did you know that true gratitude is not an attitude, but a state of consciousness? That’s what my teachers in the Oneness Phenomenon are saying. Gratitude for external things like a pay raise or a gift is only fleeting; You may feel grateful in that moment, or even for the entire day…but if someone triggers you or something happens that doesn’t go your way, isn’t it easy to lose that gratitude? Doesn’t that happen all the time?
On the other hand, real gratitude that comes from deep within, and is not dependent on what is happening in our life, is a state of awareness that we want to embody. This is the type of gratitude that transforms each of us, and this troubled world we live in.
We’re in a world of tremendous disconnection from our Source, from each other, and from the Earth. We’re lost and we desperately need to find the way home. The Oneness Phenomenon path is not the only way to get home, for there are many, many paths to awakening. However, it’s one that it powerful, easy to access, and definitely transformational. All these reasons are why I practice Deeksha, teach Deeksha initiation, wrote a book on it, and am continually learning from the teachings.
Oneness University in India, which I’ve written about extensively in my book The Oneness Blessing, has been undergoing some changes in the past year. The famous avatars who are most known regarding the spreading of the Oneness Phenomenon, Sri Amma and Sri Bhagavan, have turned over the running of Oneness University to their son Krishna ji and his wife, Preetha ji. Krishna ji, at age 11, was the first person who was able to transmit the energy of the Oneness Deeksha to another person, as the Phenomenon worked directly with him at a very young age. Now Krishna ji is grown and married to a wise, spiritually empowered woman, Preetha ji, and they have a child.
Preetha ji started a center called One World Academy in India some years ago. She is known in her own right all around the world. Her recent TEDx talk on how to end stress, unhappiness, and anxiety can be heard HERE. Now, Preetha ji and Krishna ji have merged Oneness University with One World Academy, calling it O&O Academy. The anchor of the Oneness Phenomenon continues to be the Oneness Temple in India, for it is an incredible, metaphysical portal that sits on one of the most powerful grid lines on the planet, according to my teachers. I’ve personally experienced its transcendent energy and urge anyone who can go to India, to go there and experience it yourself.
O&O Academy is celebrating what Sri Bhagavan named some years ago, as “Gratitude Day” on November 14. In fact, they are recognizing a “Season of Gratitude” from Nov. 14-23. Of course the 23rd is our Thanksgiving Day here in the States, so it perfectly fits in this time period.
Today, I’m sharing with you a beautiful meditation created by Preeth ji, which is designed to help move us into a state of true gratitude. I challenge you to join me in practicing this short meditation daily from Nov. 14-23. In fact, you may want to continue with it much longer – especially if you are a seeker of permanent consciousness transformation.
True gratitude is a powerful catalyst for experiencing a love of life. Gratitude ushers in great inner peace, a deep awareness of interconnection, and a state of Oneness consciousness. Preetha ji and Krishna ji want to start a tidal wave of gratitude all over the world! Let’s contribute to that!
Will you be part of a global shift? Do we not need it acutely now? Please join me in meditating with Preethaji’s Gratitude Meditation – find this meditation HERE on YouTube.
Please let me know how you like the meditation and its message, and if your internal state begins to change. Perhaps Thanksgiving will be more meaningful than it’s ever been this year – despite what is going on all around us in the world. That is my hope and faith in our ability to shift the future of our beautiful planet and its abundant expressions of the One.
