Christmas Presence

As we get closer to Christmas or what ever holiday you may celebrate, we need to be more present. Being aware of all that’s going on around us – Cherishing each moment because they will be gone in the blink of an eye.

For instance, today my stepfather (82 years old) carried my Christmas tree up three flights of stairs. Will that happen next year? The school won a Christmas tree decorating contest in which we had students create the ornaments. Which of those students will be here next Christmas?

The nature of the universe is to constantly change. People are coming in and out of our lives every day. There are always new challenges to overcome. So we often get caught up in the next thing. All I’m saying is the best gift we can give ourselves is “Christmas Presence” create and keep this time because, like the winter’s snow it will soon be gone.

 

Namaste,

Giving…

Giving not GIFTING, that’s what the holidays are about…

Volunteering your time to a soup kitchen or food pantry – Lending a hand to an elder – Spending time not money on your children – Being present with yourself and your higher power – Appreciating your talents by sharing them. These are the true gifts of the season and you won’t find them on sale black Friday – They are to precious and rare!

Namaste,

Go out and hug someone!
