Our deepest fear- what is it? That if we let our light shine, we might be more powerful than we can ever fathom. Of course I am paraphrasing from Mary Louise’s famous poem, “Our Deepest Fear”. In essence we must discover, understand, and then accept the light we have been granted in order to help someone else discover their own light and continue the cycle.
I believe that the amount of effort it will take to help others discover their own light depends on what their journey will allow and its all in God’s time! No, its not even religious, but if it helps, its what it is. Light is the energy you share whether negative or positive. Where does it come from? Doesn’t it come from our beliefs? And where do our beliefs come from. They come from those we come in contact with and their energy- and most of the time, we don’t even question where their beliefs came from either. Or do you? Stop and think about that a bit. Ask yourself why you belief the way you do and why you believe those who were important in your life without asking where their beliefs came from. Then ask yourself, have you ever caught anyone lying to you for a reason that benefitted them or their friends, group, or community club. Did our own parents lie to us and we knew it, but we let it slide because it was our parents and we thought that they had all the reason in the world to bend our reality a bit. But why would they let us believe this way? Was it to hurt us?
Who ultimately is in charge of our thoughts and our beliefs? Are you, the government, the pope, the neighbor, the education system? Well, if you don’t realize soon enough that you are in total charge of your thoughts, everyone else will be able to manipulate you into thinking how they want you to think. Can you change a belief is probably what your thinking? Think about it, I am sure that you have changed your mind about a thing or two because you did not agree with how people were thinking about a certain situation and it didn’t flow with your own thoughts. So you see, you do have the amazing power of changing your thoughts and your beliefs. Some will take more work than others because we have certain forces working to keep those beliefs in tact. The more you believe this with all your heart, the more you will be able to allow you light to shine brightly and thus, allowing yourself to be the light for someone else.
Xmas signifies the good in people- the best in people and the love in people! It is the miracle of our humanity and most people love to be reminded of that magic in all of us which lives in us each and every day. But why does it come out in Xmas more so than in other Holidays? Or is that just an assumption? I think miracles will manifest anywhere any time we need them, but it takes the key ingredient- the key ingredient of Love.
Why do people feel that they have been given permission to express more love during Xmas? Is it because one resigns to the fact that they will have to spend forced time with loved ones so why not give in and maybe if they think that you care about them, the gift might be a bit better? Lol, I’m not saying that this is the one and only outlook on Xmas, but I have heard many people feel as if they are obligated to spend that time with family even if they wouldn’t if they could choose.
I am very sure that there are extremes, that there are many people who hold this Holiday sacred for the strong beliefs that have shaped their connection with what Xmas is all about. Do you know anyone who goes all out for Xmas and literally transforms into a new person for the month of December or even January only to return to the grumpy person they were after the Holidays?
How long has this gone on? Xmas has gone on forever and ever since the early days and I bet that people looked forward to Xmas miracles in the days before cars and or the internet. I bet communities thrived on the love of Xmas and the love of giving.
Xmas miracles can happen to everyone and many have happened for me personally, even when it wasn’t Xmas. But Xmas did make it that much more special. Have you ever thought about the miracles that happened for you around Xmas? Would you be willing to share them? Love to hear those stories...
