In Everything Give Thanks
292-2 Sunday 11/21/1965
If we are grateful, we open spiritually. We are much more sensitive and responsive or receptive to the great glories that pour forth esoterically through the Christmas season. Thanksgiving is a period in which we recapitulate, reappraise and reexpress the many things for which we are grateful. It cleanses the feelings and makes them pure and God-aligned, and brings us into condition for enlightenment. Since our nation is the cradle of the new race, America is an archetype in its highest aspirations of those qualities which we all bless. On Thanksgiving day, we repeat the summarizing of that which our soul knows to have been good for us. The more we are grateful for shelter, for the joy of our loved family, for beauty, the more we appreciate those things, without being unduly attached to them, the more we will attract still more abundantly and ever better quality will come to us.
