’Tis the season for Peace on Earth. And the most direct path from where we are today to humans living peacefully on this planet to which we belong is for each of us to — say it with me — cultivate it within our Selves. Cultivating Peace within our Selves means being far more present far more of the time. It means conjuring Peace and feeling it on purpose. It means embodying calm, confidence, and satisfaction. Everything is energy so as we embody more and more of the energy of Peace we emanate more and more Peace wherever we go. The law of attraction expands it exponentially and engenders even more of it within more of us because like it or not — believe it or not — we are all connected. Now we are Warriors for Peace. Now we are Peace Ambassadors. Now Peace infuses our relationships and our families more than it did. Peace permeates our communities and our workplaces more than it did. Because it’s in more of us more of the time, Peace finds its way into governments large and small in our towns, cities, and states. It oozes into our national and international politics and into the governments of countries. Investments in Peacebuilding abound. It’s a whole new world and we co-created it.
’Tis the season for Greetings. To Greet another is to Greet one’s Self because, again, we are all connected. Greeting one another is an opportunity to release judgment, to be compassionate, to share, and to listen.
’Tis the season for high Hopes and best Wishes. Yet those of us endeavoring to live more consciously know that Hopes and Wishes are thoughts, ideas, and visions of what could be. We take responsibility, then, for spring-boarding from Hopes and Wishes of what could be into shiny, clear intentions of what will be. The law of attraction is still always on. Intentions still very much matter. We take responsibility for doing what’s required to stay aligned with our intentions. We root out any and all beliefs we have about what is and isn’t possible and what we do and don’t deserve. Now we’re in far greater control of our Selves and our lives. Now we’re in ongoing communication with Source, Creator. Now we’re empowered. Now we’re cooking with gas.
’Tis the season for Giving and Receiving, two actions that go hand in hand. Everybody delights in Giving and almost everybody demurs and deflects when it’s time to receive. But the relationship between the two is symbiotic. By delighting in Receiving your gift, I simultaneously give you the gift of Giving. It is important to maintain the organic flow of the energy of Giving and Receiving, keeping it healthy and strong. It’s an example of interdependence, an example of everyday normal in the new consciousness.
’Tis the season for Merry and Joy and Happy. Do they occur by default or by design? Yes!
’Tis the season for Love, also known in many circles as compassion — as in the Age of Compassion and the admonition to be compassionate. Romantic love is its own thing, but Love in this sense is far more about behavior than feeling an emotion or an attraction. To Love is to listen. To Love is to give. To Love is to receive. To Love is to have an attitude of gratitude. To Love is to feel our feelings. To Love is to care for Earth, our home. To Love is to trust. To Love is to forgive. To Love is to listen with — and to — our hearts. Love is the energy that connects us all to one another, it’s the energy in which we live and it’s the energy that lives in us.
’Tis the season for Goodwill, an expression of Love if ever there was one.
’Tis the season for Merry and Joy and Happy. Do they occur by default or by design? Yes! Those who, ahem, wish and hope for Joy and Happy and Merry to descend upon them — by default — may or may not ever be satisfied. Those, however, who desire to feel Happy and who yearn to embody the spirit of Merry and who aspire to feel more and more Joy are reminded that choices abound. They are reminded that being Happy is a choice. Feeling Joy is a choice. Being Merry is a choice.
‘Tis the season for Holidays, a word derived from Holy days. We can make anything Holy with our blessing — you, me, and everyone. We can make something Holy today, this week, this month, this season.
’Tis the season for Christ and that means many things to many people. To this raised-Jewish, non-religious, “spiritual,” “conscious” American it means Christ Consciousness — the embodiment of all we ever talk about here. It’s yet another synonym for the new consciousness in which we’re steeped along with New Paradigm, Five-D, Age of Compassion, and the others. “Christ Consciousness” has a warm resonance in this particular heart. And a reverence. I like it.
’Tis a season, too. Ecclesiastes: “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…” We say, far less eloquently, that we are here, in general, for a reason, born on purpose for a purpose. So we are, each of us, then, in this particular Season on purpose for a purpose. May we each find meaning particular to us for experiencing this here Season here now these days.
May we experience as much Joy as we desire. May we know what it is to be Happy and Merry. May our Hopes and Wishes propel us into action. May Peace and Love take root in our hearts and emanate multi-fold into the ethers. May we intend Goodwill and see our Selves in one another. May we fully and readily Receive the gifts coming to us. May we appreciate more and more of this Life and render more and more of it Holy.
’Tis the season, is it not?
