Some assembly required, batteries not included.
Tis the summer season of miracles! Whether your tradition includes the birth of a Christ child or not, the Holidays bring using them a cherished renewal of hope, peace and joy, which are miracles in this often challenging and troubled world. It appears every holiday movie has in it an email of miracles abounding. The Christmas truly is among miracles.
And yet, what do we tend to complete 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 in front of the mall entrance. We overeat, overspend, and then make everyone around us miserable with your whining. Hardly an email of hope, peace and joy!
Instead, invest in a “Do-It-Yourself Holiday Miracle Kit.” It’s easy, it’s free, and everyone 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 when you remember what gift giving is about, and simply how much appreciation you have for those you are selecting gifts for. Oahu is the smile that warms your heart when you consider that Holiday dinner with relatives as a time for you to re-connect with those closest for you, people who – ornery and difficult as they might be – are unique individuals, worthy in their very own right. Oahu is the smile that lights your face if you are thankful for anything you have to supply those you care about, not worrying yourself about whether the offerings are slim or lush.
Oahu is the smile with which you greet everyone you meet, co-worker, family or stranger on the street, for in this Christmas, this season of miracles, it is good to consider that whenever you receive down to it, we are but one human family, all sharing similar joys and woes.
The “pay it forward” part of the kit is the willingness to exhibit “Good will to all” which spreads more good across the planet. It’s being gracious in allowing another person to claim the “It” doll, in not squeezing someone out of that parking place a course in miracles soundcloud. It’s working magic for someone else, knowing, as you do, that somewhere, sometime, someplace, someone is likely to make magic happen for you.
“What circles 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. When you pay it forward, you not only make magic happen for someone here and now, you propagate that energy so it may grow, and with it, more miracles in our world.
Be a miracle-maker. Assemble your kit, insert the batteries of your loving-kindness energy, and watch your Holiday Season bloom with delights!
