This Is . . . Christmas

This is your Christmas now. It is not simply a commemorative holiday. It is not simply a remembrance of Jesus. It is not simply a remembrance of family and friends. It is not simply a time to give gifts and to be giving for a few days out of the year. Though it may include all of these things, the meaning of Christmas is greater. Let it be greater for you. Let it be a time, then, that you remember that you have a greater purpose in the world and that you have been sent into the world to reclaim this purpose—to accept it, to experience it and to follow it so that it may be contributed.

You cannot do this based upon the strength of your ideas. You cannot do this by being an adamant person. You cannot do this by rebelling against society or by attacking its institutions. You can only do it with Knowledge, and you can only do it with the power of the Unseen Ones, who will come to assist you as Knowledge begins to emerge within you.

Only Knowledge has the strength to move other minds. Only Knowledge has the potency to create a lasting impact. Only Knowledge can foster good and good intentions. Only Knowledge can counteract fear and hostility. Only Knowledge can bless the world. This is your Christmas.

Peace Harmony & Joy

#TongueTwisterTuesday

Try saying this when you had a few glasses of wine! I have a video … I’m too embarrassed to post it … one of these Tuesdays!

Have fun this afternoon – Life has just been too serious around my home with sickness and death and I know it’s not just our house.

My mother used to have a saying when her life had … we will call them “situations” when things were not going right, not going the way she planned. Most of the time we were with her … ALL THE TIME apparently she didn’t believe in babysitters! We would all jump in the car, and my mother would lean back in the driver’s seat, take a deep breathe and say “Fuck’em if they can’t take a joke”. 

I would say to her “mom, you didn’t tell them a joke, they told you NO” – she replied with “what you do in those moments when things aren’t going your way is don’t take it too seriously think of it like a joke” My mother used humor to heal, it was a wonderful thing!

Peace Harmony & Have some fun!
