Presence, Not Presents!
As the holiday season gets into full swing, what is more valuable is “presence,” not presents!
Many of us live like a speedboat skimming across the surface of a lake, unaware that life is unfolding in the depths of that lake. The demands of life in 2017-2018 accelerate and distract our minds. We have to slow down and be fully present to derive fulfillment. The alternative is a list of to-dos that never get to-done!
Wherever you are, be there. Don’t be a skimmer, a shopper, a material being that, when all is said and done, and the wrapping paper has been torn open and revealed the treasures within, feels duped and disappointed.
Ceremonial occasions are important…the gathering of “tribes” in our lives is part of tradition. Don’t mistake the ceremonial for the authentic and try to bring as much authentic to the ceremonial as you can.
Christ’s birth symbolizes a transition in consciousness, another step in the evolution of humankind. We can celebrate that by being conscious rather than by devolving!
May you invite into your life the blessings of abundance, both material and invisible!
