Tis the summer season of miracles! Whether your tradition includes the birth of a Christ child or not, the Holidays bring together a cherished renewal of hope, peace and joy, all of which are miracles in this often challenging and troubled world. It seems every holiday movie has inside it a message of miracles abounding. The Holidays truly is 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 one another, 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 message of hope, peace and joy!
Instead, choose “Do-It-Yourself Holiday Miracle Kit.” It’s easy, it’s free, and everyone can have one for the asking. It includes a smile, and a “pay it forward” mentality.
The smile is yours, of course. It’s the smile you relax into once you remember what gift giving is about, and how much appreciation you have for those you’re selecting gifts for. It’s the smile that warms your heart once you think of that Holiday dinner with relatives as a time and energy to re-connect with those closest for your requirements, those that – ornery and difficult as they might be – are unique individuals, worthy in their own right. It’s the smile that lights that person when you’re thankful for whatever you have to offer those you value, not worrying yourself about whether the offerings are slim or lush.
It’s the smile with that you greet everyone you meet, co-worker, family or stranger on the road, for in this Holidays, in 2010 of miracles, it’s good to keep in mind that after you receive right down to it, a course in miracles soundcloud we are but one human family, all sharing similar joys and woes.
The “pay it forward” the main kit is your willingness showing “Good will to all” which in turn spreads more good across the planet. It’s being gracious in allowing someone else to claim the “It” doll, in not squeezing someone out of this parking place. It’s working a miracle for anyone else, knowing, as you do, that somewhere, sometime, someplace, someone can 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 react to you in like manner. Whenever you pay it forward, you not merely make a miracle happen for anyone here and now, you propagate that energy so it may grow, and with it, more miracles inside our world.
Be described as a miracle-maker. Assemble your kit, insert the batteries of your personal loving-kindness energy, and watch your Holiday Season bloom with delights!
