Gratefulness opens the door of the heart and acknowledges our interconnectedness with others and our essential oneness with a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness which exists beyond time and space and whose principle property is the urge to unite. Gratefulness is the path to our heart centered destiny: Allen L Roland

"If there were no real propensity to unite, even at a prodigiously rudimentary level, indeed, in the molecule itself, it would be impossible for love to appear higher up in the 'hominized' or human form" Teilhard de Chardin

Love is the vehicle for becoming what we want to be because in surrendering to love ~ we initially glimpse the beauty of who we really are.

However, to fully embrace ourselves we must go beyond the fears and the control of the ego. 

This is not a painless path for the path to the soul is like walking a tightrope over the deep chasm of the unknown.

And the balancing rod on this perilous inner path is GRATEFULNESS.
God only reveals itself to a grateful heart and the only antidote for unworthiness and resentment is GRATEFULNESS.

Why, you ask ?

Because you must understand that all the key people on the journey of your heart could not be any different than the way they were in that , in loving them, you took another step towards finally embracing yourself ~ regardless of the outcome of these relationships.

Regardless of the pain or rejection you must see them as gifts on the path or tightrope towards becoming the person you always wanted to be ~ yourself.

The people I have loved the deepest have been my greatest teachers because, in loving that deeply, I embraced more of myself and the person I always wanted to be.

It takes great courage to surrender to the inner journey of the heart but it helps if you realize that what lies deepest within ourselves is love, joy and soul consciousness ~ only our self-imposed cocoon of aloneness , separation and ego consciousness keep us from this inner delight and knowledge.

Only by living my life in GRATEFULNESS have I realized how blessed I am and only then can I truly accept the gift of knowing that I am not only deeply loved but I am part of something far greater than myself.

One of the most powerful sessions I do with my clients is session five ( of seven ) where, through a visualization, they see the scores of people who have loved them and touched them in their life and the question I ask them is ~ How many of these people have you thanked in real life?

Their homework is to thank these people and when they do that they literally can feel their hearts begin to open .

There is not one person in my life who I have not thanked for being a gift in my life and my heart has expanded in the process.

But the person I am most grateful to is myself, for having the courage to believe in myself, to listen and respond to my own inner guidance, to share my truth regardless of the risks, to be able to both take hold and let go of relationship with love ~ and in the process find more of myself as well as my living part in a universal loving plan.

As such, I have embraced Christ consciousness or soul consciousness from within, which is what Jesus spoke of when he said "the kingdom of heaven is within you" versus from without or externally through the bible ~ which many Christian fundamentalists claim is the path to salvation.

Remember, Jesus was divinely human and a forerunner for a state of consciousness all of us will eventually surrender to. As such, God is a loving plan in action or an evolutionary process with which we all participate as co-creators.

Jesus was a fully enlightened man ~ the Christ is the love he manifested in his life which is also deepest within each one of us (not just Jesus). This love is also a state of soul consciousness which is one in the same with my Unified field.

As Teilhard de Chardin once wrote ~"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience."

The humanizing of Jesus is the single most important religious step that must be taken in the eventual coming together of mankind.

And GRATEFULNESS is the path towards knowing and claiming this great inner truth.

This is also my annual Donation letter where I ask for a holiday contribution for my weekly newsletter ~ which has been an ongoing weekly gift from my heart to my thousands of readers for over 13 years. Please send your donation, in the spirit of gratitude, to P.O.Box 834, Danville, Ca 94526 / or PayPal

 It is not for nothing that Cicero said that gratitude is the parent of all virtues.

A woman in New York reacts to the news of John F. Kennedy's assassination, Nov. 22, 1963

This photo sums up a nation's shock, dismay and disbelief when we all learned of the assassination of JFK on November 22, 1963. But there were many others who were not shocked but relieved, if not happy, when JFK was gunned down ~ and the obvious questions still remain unanswered: Allen L Roland

I personally remain completely unconvinced by the Warren Report and feel that America has never fully recovered from JFK's assassination for with his death came the death of hope for a more humane, a more peaceful and a more just America. The assassination of both John and Robert Kennedy marked not only the death of hope for a better America but the full emergence of the dark force of a criminalized Military, Industrial, Congressional complex.

Can you imagine JFK condoning indiscriminate Drone attacks on innocent civilians under the cover of a fictitious War on Terror as we now see every day in the Middle East ~ like this latest example in Yemen. 4 minute video

Here, in a nut shell, is what really happened on November 22,1963

The Secret Service stood down.

Dallas and Texas law enforcement stood down.

Military intelligence, which is normally enrolled to provide presidential security, stood down.

The FBI stood down.

These elements opened the door to the assassination, but did not have the resources to deliver the shooters and the complicated cover story and witness elimination program that followed.

Corrupt elements of the CIA and their long term friends and colleagues in organized crime did.
And they did it because their very survival was at stake

After decades of non-investigation by the epically corrupt J. Edgar Hoover, organized crime was on the receiving end of a massive attack by Robert Kennedy ~ the president's brother and Attorney General.

At the same time, his brother was going after organized crime, JFK was going after the criminal elements that had taken over the CIA.

Few people understand that organized crime and the CIA (and its predecessors) work closely together both inside the US and outside and by the time of the Kennedy assassination had done so for decades.

Neither of the Kennedy brothers were choirboys, but what they were undertaking was a heroic effort on their parts and one done for the good of the country. Had they succeeded, they would have averted many of the catastrophes that have befallen the US ~ and other countries (effecting many hundreds of millions of people) ~ in the last 50 years

The Kennedy brothers knew the risks involved in their operations. What they attempted required great moral and physical courage the likes of which have rarely been seen in the history of this country.

It's noteworthy that this story, one of the most important in post-war 20th century history, has been completely erased from the public mind and the mass media, through bullcrap books (ex. Vincent Bugliosi's latest) and endless snarky gossip pieces designed to diminish President Kennedy's stature. - See more info plus 4 minute video

Here's Oliver Stone's candid interview with Amy Goodman on the 50th Anniversary of the JFK Assassination:

AMY GOODMAN: "When Kennedy was killed, the official narrative was immediately questioned. Nearly five decades later, a new poll has found a clear majority of Americans still suspect there was a conspiracy behind the assassination. However, according to the Associated Press JFK poll, the percentage of those who believe accused shooter Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone is at its highest level since the mid-’60s. The survey, conducted in mid-April, said 59 percent of Americans think multiple people were involved in a conspiracy to kill the president, while 24 percent think Oswald acted alone, 16 percent are still unsure." 

OLIVER STONE: " My thoughts. I saw the (Zapruder) film inside these last few days, and I’ve been able to assess it again, and I’ve followed the cases more or less from the outside. I haven’t been inside. It’s amazing to me that people still deny it. As you know, I was in the infantry in Vietnam. I had a fair amount of combat experience. I saw people blown away in action. When you look once again at the basics of the film ~ the bullets, the autopsy, the forensics, the shooting path ~ and stay away from all the other stuff ~ Oswald’s background and Garrison, etc. ~ just follow the meat, the evidence, what you see with your own eyes in those six seconds, it’s an amazing ~ it’s all there. It doesn’t need to be elaborated upon. You can see it with your own eyes. "
"You see Kennedy make his ~ get a hit in the throat. Then you see Kennedy get a hit in the back. Then you see him essentially get a hit from the front. When he gets the hit from the front, which is the fourth or the fifth or the sixth shot, he goes back and to the left. That’s the basic evidence. You see a man fly back because he gets hit right here. Many witnesses at Parkland and at the autopsy in Bethesda saw a massive exit wound to the rear of his skull, to the right side. The people at Parkland, including the young doctor, McClelland, saw his cerebellum, his brain, go out the ~ almost falling out of the back of his skull. Later, when he gets taken ~ illegally to Bethesda, Maryland, the military….has taken control and is telling everyone what to do

Read interview:

If you're a fan of Bill Hicks, you're going to enjoy this video for I feel the need to inject some humor into such a tragic event as JFK's assassination as well as America's willingness to be bamboozled ~ not only by the Warren Report but more recently by the equally suspicious 9/11 Official report.

Bill's language is not politically correct but Hicks cuts to the chase regarding the Assassination of JFK. 5 minute Video:

Wake up, America before it’s too late.
