Thank You Letter to God

Dear God,

Thank you for all the peace you create in this world.

Thank you for being love. I now realize that when I am loving, I am you. When I am full of fear, hatred, or anger, then I am pushing you away with both arms. If I open those arms and expose my heart, then you are always there to give me the love I need.

Thank you for being the best teacher I have ever had. Your lessons are custom made to help me work on what I need to learn in this lifetime. Your patience and foresight are beyond measure.

Thank you for showing me that life is like a jigsaw puzzle: The individual pieces may seem incoherent, chaotic, and sometimes dark, but if we look at the bigger picture, we experience beauty, unity, and meaning.

Thank you for my two beautiful children, although they are not MY children–they have simply chosen me as a path to learn and teach what they came here to do. I now realize that the way we love our children is the way we are meant to treat each other. We are all children, parents, and relatives of each other. Our role is to blow spirit into others and let them fly.

Thank you for making life a game with all sentient beings our teammates and our ego the opponent.

Thank you for your presence for it teaches us that the easiest path towards godliness is to be present at all times.

Thank you for not doing too much and just being.

Love Always,

Your son,

Kozo Hattori

    Gratitude brings out peace in you. A very prayerful post, Kozo. Thank you.

  2. Indira says:

    Showing gratitude is the best and honest prayer. My prayer,
    O God ! please let me have
    Jealousy, greed, selfishness,haughtiness,
    hatred,cruelty and lust as my enemies.
    Ego, stubbornness, anger, hunger
    mind and body as my slaves.
    Love,positivity, compassion, compatibility,kindness,
    righteousness as my companions.
    And You and Conscience as my masters.

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      Love your prayer, Indira. I agree that gratitude is the best prayer. I love the last three lines of your prayer. It might just be semantics, but I’m trying to have no enemies. I want to include jealousy, greed, etc in my family.

    Reblogged this on Marcus' s Space and commented:
    Do look around you. See all the nice things which nature provides. Did you ever wonder Who is behind it all? Though the world may face many problems they are caused by human beings. Most often by those who forgot that there is a Creator Who has a Plan for the Universe. But men in their own self-indulgence and stubborninty want to do it their own way instead of listening to the Most High Creator of all things, the Only One God Jehovah.
    Though let us not forget this Creator and thank Him for all the things we can get without having earned it.

      Had a wonderful vacation, Allison. I will post some photos on the Everyday Thanksgiving post that is now 5 days late! Great to be back. I look forward to visiting your blog soon. Are you still in Mainland Mexico? {{{hugs}}} Kozo

  8. Stuck Sucks says:

    I’ve recently been thinking about this quite a bit: “I now realize that the way we love our children is the way we are meant to treat each other.” Thank you for writing it – it’s like confirmation from the Universe. Blessings to you!

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      I’m starting to realize that everything is “confirmation from the Universe,” BSS. I really believe that if we treat others like we treat our children with love and kindness, it would be a much more peaceful world. {{{{Hugs}}} Kozo

  9. Beautiful! Welcome back! …and thanks for the pingback 😀 tomas ♥

  10. Kelly Kuhn says:

    I had planned to write today’s post before reading others, but couldn’t resist reading first, and I’m so glad I read this first. Now I’m in a prayerful state of mind and heart. Thanks for the pingback and for being a light.

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      Can’t think of a better way to write than from a prayerful state of mind and heart, Kelly. Can’t wait to read what comes of this state of mind. {{{hugs}}}} Kozo

  12. Hi, Kozo 🙂 I’m giving you the Versatile Blogger Award. I’ll send out a post on this tomorrow. Congratulations!

  13. prayingforoneday says:

    I really enjoyed that read Kozo… Brilliant mate

  14. Rohan 7 Things says:

    Brilliant letter Kozo, concise yet beautiful 🙂

    And this has to be my favorite line: “Thank you for making life a game with all sentient beings our teammates and our ego the opponent.”

    I never looked at it that way, very cool!

    Hugs 🙂


    • Kozo Hattori says:

      Thanks, Rohan. I have to keep reminding myself that everyone is on my team. We are all connected, and it is only our ego that separates us.

      Glad to have made a connection with you, my friend.
      {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    Oh god I have worked hard and sinned too but never asked you for lottery wins.Today am a Oldman and not capable but before I leave this meterial world I humbly pray you allow me to win lotto on 30/12-2015 so I can help others. No part of the win/ fortune to be used for my own benefit. Please Lord Jesus and lord Krishna. Amen
