Some assembly required, batteries not included.
Tis the season of miracles! Whether your tradition includes the birth of a Christ child or not, the Holidays bring with them a cherished renewal of hope, peace and joy, which are miracles in this often challenging and troubled world. It seems every holiday movie has inside a note of miracles abounding. The Holidays truly is certainly one of miracles.
And yet, what do we tend to do during this most miraculous of time? Let’s see… we crowd the stores, shoving and pushing each other, vying for that last “It” doll on the shelf. We crow victoriously when we outwit another driver and snag that lone remaining convenient parking place right before the mall entrance. We overeat, overspend, and then make everyone around us miserable with our whining. Hardly a note of hope, peace and joy!
Instead, choose “Do-It-Yourself Holiday Miracle Kit.” It’s easy, it’s free, and anyone can have one for the asking. It comes with a smile, and a “pay it forward” mentality.
The smile is yours, of course. Oahu is the smile you relax into once you remember what gift giving is about, and simply how much appreciation you have for those you are selecting gifts for a course in miracles soundcloud. Oahu is the smile that warms your heart once you consider that Holiday dinner with relatives as a time and energy to re-connect with those closest for you, those who – ornery and difficult as they may be – are unique individuals, worthy in their particular right. Oahu is the smile that lights your face when you’re thankful for whatever you have to supply those you worry about, not worrying yourself about whether the offerings are slim or lush.
Oahu is the smile with that you simply greet everyone you meet, co-worker, family or stranger on the road, for in this Holidays, in 2010 of miracles, it is good to remember that when you receive right down to it, we are but one human family, all sharing similar joys and woes.
The “pay it forward” the main kit can be your willingness to show “Good will to all” which in turn spreads more good round the planet. It’s being gracious in allowing somebody else to claim the “It” doll, in not squeezing someone out of that parking place. It’s working a miracle for someone else, knowing, as you do, that somewhere, sometime, someplace, someone will make a miracle happen for you.
“What goes around comes around” isn’t just an over-worked aphorism, it’s quantum-science truth. Energy attracts like energy. The more you sincerely appreciate others, and act towards them out of love, not fear, the more others will answer you in like manner. Once you pay it forward, you not just make a miracle happen for someone here and now, you propagate that energy so it can grow, and with it, more miracles in our world.
Be a miracle-maker. Assemble your kit, insert the batteries of your personal loving-kindness energy, and watch your Holiday Season bloom with delights!
