Retro-Posts consist of content that I wrote in the past, earlier on in my journey. You may notice that some of my ideas, concepts and understandings have evolved and deepened over time ~ I have decided that it is important to be completely open about my path, and take pride in the learning I have done along the way. I hope that it empowers some of you to recognize the need to allow yourself to shed all that no longer serves you, and be open to changing your perceptions, and growing into and out of each stage in the process of self-exploration and self-realization. I have learned to appreciate this spiritual adventure, and look forward to further transformation as I move into the future ~ care to join me?
"There are some upon this Earth of yours who lay claim to know us, and who do their deeds of passion, pride, ill-will, hatred, envy, bigotry and selfishness in our name, who are as strange to us and all our kith and kin, as if they had never lived. Remember that, and charge their doings on themselves, not us." ~ Spirit of Christmas Present ♥
It's not about the presents, the ads, the decorations, the toys, the mad dash and greed. So please don't grumble at me when you catch me humming Christmas carols and dancing to them with my children in public. I don't celebrate commercialism. I celebrate Christmas.
Christmas is about being together, being thankful and for reaching a loving hand out to those who have less than you do. Think back to your childhood, when your tummy would tingle with that special feeling that made you smile and notice the magic in the air. The glowing of your heart when you placed a can of soup in a donation basket for the food bank. The excitement that made your hands tremble as you watched your loved ones open your handmade Christmas gifts. The comfort of cradling a cup of hot chocolate after tobogganing. The serenity in the belief that it was possible for the world to be at peace, even if it was just for one night, knowing that if we could all just have a taste of it, we would want to keep it. ♥ It's my Christmas wish that everyone is able to feel those sensations again (or even for the first time). Find the joy, find the love and find your self! ♥
