In America, Thanksgiving is the national holiday used to give thanks. And we have a lot to be grateful for. First with all of the creatures in the world it is rare to be born as a human being. And it is even rarer to find out about the path of Self-Knowledge, which leads to the source of wisdom and joy. Then it is even rarer to recognize the value of these teachings and to practice in such a way that you can reach the place that they point to.
Keeping this in mind, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It is not because of the imitation vegetarian turkey or the feasting. Rather Thanksgiving is a great reminder that the real feast occurs on the inside where you can discover everlasting joy; it springs from the source of joy.
Notice where you actually experience joy
You can find the place of joy by noticing where you actually experience it. Joy does not come from the things that you eat or sense with your eyes, ears, nose, or mind. Joy comes from what you are. When you stand at your source, even the turkey seems to smile. So I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving; so happy that you stand here forever in the joy that has no cause.
