In this issue:

  • A study of Gratitude:
    Cicero is often quoted as saying that gratitude is not only the greatest virtue, it is the parent of all the others. I have pondered for many years the question: How might gratitude lead to other virtues? And so, for this Thanksgiving Issue, I was inspired to investigate some of what what Rudolf Steiner has said on the subject. Many of his references to gratitude are in lectures about education, and the importance of and methods for cultivating gratitude in children at an early age. Other references relate to our relationship with the dead, and to our relationship to our karma. In this issue I have included several passages from Dr. Steiner and a few from other sources, which I hope you will find enlivening.   ~ VH
