two spiritual communities - 12-Step Recovery and New Thought.
The idea that gratitude is not just a sentiment but a spiritual principle is central to New Thought teachings (and many other faith traditions as well). While we are in no way claiming that gratitude plays a lesser role in 12-step philosophy, emphasis on it is perhaps not quite as obvious.
With that in mind, we are please to bring you a wonderful article from SpiritualRiver.com on the importance of gratitude. Happy Thanksgiving!
