Looking into the clear star-lit Christmas Eve sky feelings of both amazement and wonderment of our very existence and way of being emerged. So here we are between the infiniteness of the universe above and the finiteness of the earth below. I can’t help but think that we humans reflect both.
During the holiday season most offer wishes of happiness and joy to both loved ones and strangers alike. I believe this wish is a heartfelt wish. But then, reality grabs us: Once the season passes, we go back to the work-a-day dog-eat-dog competitive ego-centered way-of-being. Why do we do this? I suspect the system requires us to be this way; just like the context of the holiday season allows us to be wishful of joy to one and all.
Why don’t we simply continue our heartfelt way-of-relating? After all it is not that we are not capable. Some reacting to this question might say stop dreaming, that’s not reality! However, I suspect most will wish it could be so. I believe all you have to do is cease wishing and begin being responsible for the reality we create. Let’s get real and be the difference we wish for. Just think how wonderful life would be.
