My dear friends, we love you so very much.
In this season of light, look around you. There is light everywhere in your world. Instead of looking for what is wrong, search for what is right. Instead of looking at the doom and the gloom around you, find the simplest things to celebrate. For within the simple pleasures and joys of life - in the simplest gestures of kindness and love - it is there that you discover and share the most magnificent expressions of God's love for all of you.
This season celebrates the birth of a humble child, the burning of a humble lamp, and the humble expressions of God's love rising up from within your hearts and burning brightly for all the world to see.
It is not the presents you buy but the your presence in the world that ultimately is your greatest gift to friends, family, and ultimately back to God. It is your attentive presence in a conversation that gives the gift of healing. It is the presence of a joyful smile that brightens a stranger's day. It is your presence with a child, doing a humble craft, or sharing a humble story that will be one of their brightest memories in times to come. It is the presence of your hand upon another that offers comfort, compassion, and care. Dear ones, the material gifts are wonderful and fun and of course you are all encouraged to share what you feel motivated to do so, but more so, share your hearts, your love, your kindness, your compassion, your gifts and talents, a listening ear, an uplifting word... Share of yourselves, not just during the holiday season but all throughout the year. You all want magic in your lives. Know that you are the the magical presence of love. You are the gifts that you seek. You are the light reaching out and reassuring a weary and waiting world.
Dear ones, unplug your spirits from the bondage of judgment so you can share your love without fear. Untie your hands from the fears of misunderstanding so you can hug a person in need. Release your fears of lack and share from the abundance of love that you feel within your own hearts! Allow your heart the present of an unprecedented level of freedom from fear, and a new sense of joy during this holiday season. Tell others how much they mean to you. Share with them what you see inside of them even if they do not yet see it themselves. Hug as if you mean it. Don't hold back your love for it truly it is within giving that you receive, and in receiving that you give.
You are the light that lit the lamp. You are the manger in which the Christ light is given birth. You are the PRESENCE of God in this world and the very great gift to the same. This season let your love shine brightly and allow yourselves to truly treasure the gift and the presence of those around you, for each and every one of you is a bright and beautiful gift to this world. Each and every one of you is a manifestation of God's love. And how, knowing this, could you do anything other than give thanks for the gift of your own PRESENCE here upon the earth.
We love and treasure each and every one of you, for you are a gift unto us as well.
