As I read this letter after returning from a week-long Thanksgiving visit with extended family, I realized the profound value of the gifts that have come from the sustained practice of cultivating the virtues.
Over the years, my relationship to these holiday visits has transformed: I’ve moved from dreading them, to taking them as an opportunity for sadhana—a chance to practice witnessing my state and develop a greater sense of tolerance and ease—to experiencing them as pure enjoyment, filled with love for my family. And nothing about my family had to change!
Welcome December! I can truly experience the love and joy of the season.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for teaching us to recognize the virtues as our own, and for giving us so much support in cultivating them.
