Only one sin

My good friend Stephen said one day that there is only one sin...the sin of ingratitude. At first glance, it seems like there would be many many more "sins" out there. However, i think any sin you could name would have this one as its father. Our ingratitude acts as a catalyst for all manner of distortion in our minds. We assume we need more, or better, or newer somethings, but is not existence itself astounding? Today is Thanksgiving Day. There are so many things to turn our attention towards that can give us a sense of gratitude. Did you eat today? Did your eyes blink 23040 times without failure today? Gratitude is in the little things, big things, all things!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
