THANKS AND GIVING VERSUS MATERIALISM

THE MASSES AWAKEN AS THE STORES OPEN.

NO GATHERING FOR THIS FAMILY TODAY,

AS THEY EMBARK UPON THE SHOPPING RITUAL,

THIS TIME OF YEAR.

THIS MATERIAL PHENOMENON IS OUT OF CONTROL,

SURROUNDING A DAY INTENDED FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

DEALS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN MEMORIES AND

EACH YEAR WE BECOME LESS AND LESS HUMAN.

DO NOT GET ME WRONG, I LOVE A GREAT DEAL OR PRICE,

BUT LEAVE MY THANKSGIVING DAY GATHERING ALONE.  

IF WE ARE A CORPORATE SOCIETY, THEN SACRED GATHERINGS

DO NOT COUNT FOR ANYTHING.

I'M A SPIRITUAL MAN, NOT A RELIGIOUS MAN.

HOWEVER, SOME HAVE MADE A RELIGION OUT OF SHOPPING.

REMEMBER WHAT IS IMPORTANT;  OUR INNER SPIRITUAL CORE,

AND OUR ABILITY TO STRIVE TO BE BETTER HUMAN BEINGS.

WE ARE NOT HERE TO HAVE THE MOST TOYS,

BUT TO REACH FOR THE STARS!

TAKE EVERY DAY INTO PERSPECTIVE AND REALIZE EACH MOMENT.

THIS SEASON, IT IS THANKS AND GIVING VERSUS MATERIALISM.

BE WISE AND KEEP THE INNER SEARCH ALIVE!

ENJOY YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS ON THANKSGIVING DAY!
