Santa and his gifts are the dreams of every child during this season. Carols are sung during this season. These songs bring out the Christmas message and the splendor of the season. This season also offers a lot of room for sharing and caring for the poor. Jesus was born in a manger and proclaimed that he is for the poorest of the poor.
This is the time of the year when emotion can be quite intense and often it can be miss interpreted. Being down or a bit turned off by the Christmas Season as many people are is simply a sign that what you desire and what you are experiencing is not aligned. Whats off is the focus of your attention.
This Christmas, give yourself plenty of time to prepare and dont worry if something goes wrong. After all, Christmas is not about where you spend it, or what you do - its about who youre with!
If there is an annual holiday tree lane in your community, you can drive down the street each year and let your kids enjoy the sight of elaborately decorated houses and Christmas trees. If the weather permits, everyone can enjoy a stroll. The entire family can also get some inspiration here, about what decorations to hang on the tree back home. Making this part of the family tradition will let the kids see how other homes celebrate their Christmas.
With gift shopping, preparing the house for visitors, cooking and baking to organise, you probably have a lot to juggle as Christmas approaches. Being prepared before the Christmas rush hits will save you a lot of time and stress - allowing you to relax and enjoy the holiday season. Do some of your Christmas food shopping in October or November, buy presents early or order them online, and make a list of what needs to be done. Ticking tasks off your list gradually throughout November and December will ensure an easy, stress-free Christmas.
Joy is all you must reach for and then begin immediately looking for the evidence that it is indeed created and finding itself into the present. No matter where you are on the scale of joy you can advance to higher places. Joy is the state when what is coming to you experiences little if any resistance and greater and greater degrees of freedom. This is just the way it is and the way it has always been. When you are in love, things work.
