Friends & Enemies of Christmas #Christmasnaysayers #yournewstory #Spirituality

I’m putting together a Christmas Eve program. I have been shocked at the people who say, “I hope you’re not going to sing… “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” or “Mary Did You Know” or “Joy to the World or anything that is too Christian.

I’m thinking, you do realize that this holiday is by definition about Jesus’ birth. How can we NOT sing about Jesus?

What I’m hearing with this banter is that “Does Christmas have to include word Jesus?” This question would come from people who were either disenfranchised from Christianity or people who are from different cultures or faiths that do not believe that Jesus played an important part in the spiritual history books. But, go to your dictionaries for the definition of Christmas!

Has the American celebration of Christmas contained Jesus for the past 50 years, when the economy is literally dependent upon every family spending 100s of dollars every Christmas to keep retail businesses alive? We’ve become a society of Santa Clauses for the holidays instead of looking at the true meaning of this particular holiday, whatever it might be for you.

But, to clarify, if you’re going to go to a Christmas Eve celebration at a church or center, I’d say, you should be onboard with the idea that the word Jesus is going to come up and even be celebrated.

I am willing to open the doors of my understanding to enjoy and appreciate your culture without feeling I have to sacrifice the history of mine. I know this: On Christmas Day, I’m planning a celebration for all faiths. Why? Because I spent the evening before celebrating the birth of Christianity. I want to give everybody a chance to be acknowledged.

In our Center of Spiritual Living, once a month, we have a celebration called the Candles of Faith. In this celebration we light a candle for each of the major world religions and then one large candle for Unity at the end of the celebration.

Unity is where our hearts should be on this holiday and every holiday. Let’s spread some love, light, and unity, instead of being frazzled about trying to get the perfect gift, or worse yet, complain about the word Jesus on Christmas!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas #spiritualprincipal #divineMind #SOM #Christmas

“Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…” Waiting… waiting… and more waiting, on lines, in cars, in airports, in traffic, and at checkout counters. But what are we truly waiting for? Santa Claus? Gifts from on high? Presents from loved ones? Family members to return home for a visit?

It does seem like this holiday holds a lot of people captive in the waiting game. Last night on the news, because of severe weather, there were millions of people trapped in airports in transport to their perspective destinies… probably going home for the holidays.

This year, I decided that I would NOT fill my holiday with waiting. I would live in the moment, attracting what I need, when I need it. The difference in my anticipation of the holiday has been miraculously changed.

I seem to be observing more and noticing tension and anticipation before it arises and realize that I do not need it to participate in the joy of the holiday. Staying peaceful and watchful has helped me enjoy the time with my family, friends, and church and focus in on the feelings that arise from this holiday.

I decided at the last minute to participate in a Christmas Eve musical show at The Center of Spiritual Living, in a supportive role, which is usually not where I end up. So, instead of feeling anxious about solos and such, I am just rolling along with the flow… observing, drinking up love, and flushing out all that no longer serves my holiday spirit.

It’s a great feeling to experience this holiday with no anxiousness. I highly recommend it. But, for those who are parents, I doubt it would be possible, especially if your intention is to appease your children during this season with food, presents, and the like. Trying to appease or satisfy anyone is always a challenge, because Truth would show us that we can satisfy no one but ourselves.

Contrarily, in the peace we give ourselves, we can promote others to a sense of self-love and truth that will inspire each to be gracious for all gifts given, to give graciously as well as receive, and expect nothing but love. If we taught this to our children, instead of indulging them with too many gifts to appreciate, maybe our children would not feel such entitlement and could actually receive the biggest gift of the season: The rebirth of love to the world!

Happy Holidays.

Twas the Day Before the Night Before Christmas…

…And all through the apartment, every piece of furniture was moved to make room for the tree, gifts, cards, special cookies, and food prepared about three days in advance. If my mother would have her wish, she would have already had the family dinner and have cleaned up. She starts making lists for Christmas dinner on October 1st. I have to gently tell her that green beans won’t last ten days in the refrigerator without wilting and turning brown. “Oh,” she says. Then, the next day, “Could you go to the store for me? I need green beans.” If you looked up anxious in the dictionary, I know my mother’s picture would be there, right by the definition.

I think of that fun kind of childish, anxious behavior we have when no one is looking, and we shake the gift boxes under the tree. Or when we expect someone special to arrive at a celebration. I love those feelings, but I have learned to tamp down my own excitement as an adult, and sometimes, I take away the passion and the fun from the event, simply by being old enough to know that “with expectation often comes disappointment.”

I suppose this is why adults get more excited for the children at Christmas. We see in their eyes what we once coveted. We marvel at their passion. We even take loads of videos and pictures because we know, eventually, that this excitement will wane, even for the youth.

Yesterday evening, I spent four hours rehearsing for a Christmas Eve musical celebration. This was the ensemble’s first time singing the songs with a five-piece band. Every song was a virtual disaster the initial time through. Nothing went according to expectation. All of the sound was different, because we used microphones and monitors to hear each other, now, rather than singing around a grand piano with just one instrument. However, about three hours into the rehearsal, the musicians began to hear each other and get excited about the music we made—together. For a while, individual egos were thinking about words, parts, and staging. But when the egos began to dissolve into the unity of the whole, beauty arose like a phoenix.

Singers who have been holding back or had been uncomfortable with a part, suddenly, took to the spotlight and shined. It was a wonderful sight. What began with clunking out notes to a cacophony of sounds for each part had now become an orchestra of harmony and unity.

Any holiday season mirrors what we hope all people would be like throughout the entire year. For just a few days, most people around the world share Hope, Joy, Love, Giving, and Togetherness. In so doing, I believe, we set the stage for a great metaphor for everyone to see in our daily lives. So, as we gather to celebrate together, let us all put aside our differences, our pettiness, and especially our egos, and experience what I felt last night watching individual egos become one powerful voice!
