This time of year often brings travel, traditions, family and unity to the center stage. For many, it is an opportunity to gather and share our symbolic gifts, stories and personal experiences. We come together to celebrate as one and connect with those near and dear to us.
Every moment is a precious, unique and incredible gift of life. A magnificent sunset, a cool morning breeze, the laughter of a child, the warm embrace of a friend... these are the real treasures that require nothing more than our recognition of them.
Our world is always changing and even the most seemingly static physical forms eventually dissolve to be reborn in a new form another day. We, as self aware beings, have the attribute that allows us to interact and influence this process consciously. This is an incredible creative quality that lets us shift, shape and mold the world around us.
What is it about life that is so intriguing and at the same time, can be seemingly so difficult? One moment we appear to be happy and content and the next can bring utter chaos. We can move from joy to anger in a split second or find ourselves deeply mired in wallowing grief and despair for no apparent reason.
We are at a beautiful moment on this planet where a new world is being birthed based on integrity, dignity, harmony, peace and love. The most obvious signs that this is well underway is that everything is changing and nothing seems to make sense. In fact, in many ways it appears to be the total opposite of an emerging new world.
Perhaps the greatest awareness we can focus upon in our life is the wisdom of unconditional love. It is a simple choice each of us can make that leads to profound change and births a new reality within our present moment, the only moment we ever truly have.
I come to you today with a reflection and reminder of how special, important and
loved you are. I also come with
encouragement and knowing that one by one and day by day we are building a new
world together based on peace and love. Despite
all outer appearances to the contrary, each of us is steadily remembering how to
come from our heart with unconditional love whi
