If you can't think of a ritual that you would like to practice then here are some ideas:
Shop at the market and thank the farmers for the food you eat all year.
Hike in nature and think about harvest time and the abundance of food we have and the people in your life that make you smile and fill your heart up.
Invite someone that you don't think has a family to celebrate with you for dinner and silently thank them for making you more aware of what abundance you have.
Make yourself a nice meal and pause between bites as you enjoy the flavours and nourishment of it.
And finally, here is a buddhist prayer for Thanksgiving:
This food is the gift of the whole universe—the earth, the sky, and much hard work.
May we live in a way that makes us worthy to receive it.
May we transform our unskillful states of mind, especially our greed.
May we take only foods that nourish us and prevent illness.
We accept this food so that we may realize the path of practice.May you, your family, your friends, your neighbors and my neighbors, our country, all the nations of the world, all the creatures and plants of this beautiful world—may all beings everywhere—be happy, satisfied, and safe!
Thank you to all of you who read my blog posts. Writing them reminds me to be mindful and have my own practice. I wish you a peace and love filled weekend that includes enjoying the harvests of the season.
