2015 LA SALETTE CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS by Heartlover 1717
Hanukkah and Christmas almost converge this year,
Bringing many of us bundles of cheer,
Let’s get together to celebrate
Rather than commiserate
Over the political drama in this country (U.S.) and the world.
Rather than focus on the darkness, let’s focus on
The festival of lights, the vibe of exuberance
That beckons us.
Why not choose to be hopeful
That this planet will be healed?
Let’s focus on family, and the joys that come:
giving and receiving, sometimes with child-like fun.
We bake and broil and connect to the essential elements
Of what good friends and family savor: the priceless, intimate
Expression of love’s highest goal: giving to our self and others – from the H E A R T.
This is where happiness resides:
Keeping the balance of giving, receiving and gaining clarity
– this journey of trial and error in life.
With a sense of adventure, not strife,
We are lifted from the mundane
Into the world of possibility of what we can create and become.
We heal – and inspire others – to move in this exquisite direction.
Not to be compared to anyone but our self,
Let’s aim for fullness of mind and body and spirit…
For this light within us longs for its complement
In the earth and cosmos.
I wish you a Happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali and Kwanza.
This is my last blogpost for 2019, returning on January 6th in the new year…
Peace and Love,
