What is the best dish at Thanksgiving?

Some of you are working your little butts off; whether hard labor or tons of mind stuff. On top of that, you’re literally sweating, or sweating nervously for approval of your work or other efforts.


Some, in the midst of this busyness are juggling personal issues weighing on the heart; perhaps waiting for calls about a loved one facing challenge, a child needing to be picked up from school for behavior, your people delayed with snow at the airport, or just feeling exhausted or under the weather.


Will you be willing to shut down at least for a minute or more? That’s what sleep is for. Our heavenly creator gives us little choice but to surrender and shut down, hoping we will rest and be reinvigorated from eight hours of turning off. It’s also when solutions come to us in otherworldy dreams.


In the midst of waking hours we can surrender and put ourselves on a sort of sleep mode, too. If you get 15 minute breaks in the morning and afternoon of a full-time job (which you should be legally receiving from your employer), head for the break room and lay down with your eyes closed. You will be surprisingly refreshed after your break.


While relaxing, make efforts to turn off your mind. Be assured what you need to know and remember will still be there after your shut down. Some chant silently Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, others Om, or Hu, or Om Mani Padme Hum over and over to counter usual sentences we are desiring to silence for a rest.


The aim is to be quiet inside. In between sentences. which are attempting to continue in your inner mind, notice the silence and nothingness in the spaces. A goal is to stay there…in the quiet. Let the spaces expand. Soon the words will get the picture and take a break too. You are in charge and they will only quiet if you coerce them to silence.


It may seem counter to a productive day, especially if you believe you must stay on top of things. You will find, however, that giving yourself permission to shut down, recharges you as if you had sleep. Once you open your eyes and start up again, your mind and body become more alive and running with all systems go, versus feeling overstimulated or taxed before.


In the rest time an actual answer may pop into the quiet. With heavenly Spirit always awake within our selves, it may take quieting your own monkey mind to hear divine mind.


If a mantra isn’t your cup of tea, perhaps an affirmation, like everything works out beautifully for the highest good. Or sing yourself a favorite lullaby in your inner ear, imagine loving Spirit holding and rocking you to peace and faith, a beloved ancestor spiritually stroking your head and whispering how loved you are.


Don’t get break time?  Make time. Perhaps the rest room is really made for rest. TMI? Why would it be called Rest room?


You can even sit where you are, anywhere, and change your mind. Take a breath and shut down your mind. Feel barren of thought. Allow no thought in willingly. Affirm I am refreshing, reinvigorating, knowing inspirations flow to me in divine timing. Just observe what is going on around you without judgment, stop and really see, and be grateful for the beautiful flowers, wind on your face, bird chirping in mystery, picture on the wall, money in your pocket, the health that you have, simply noticing that you are alive, alive with endless possibily, and that you are… love.


You are one with the quiet still small voice that says Know That I am God (God being peace, grace and love).
