Its Christmas, The Time Of Birth.
Birth is the introduction into life. It’s our entree. At birth we become aware of our existence as a being.
Christmas is the time of birth, the official entry into family, community and the world. Each of us celebrates our own individual entry into human life each year on our birthdays, our own Christmas.
Our birthday, however can be celebrated everyday, or any day of our choosing. We can give birth to a new born way of being, one that is nourished on whatever thoughts we choose to feed it.
Our minds are not unlike fertile farm ground, open to whatever is planted.
We can plant, to our liking, whatever thoughts we want in our fertile mental farmland, being assured that whatever thoughts are planted will grow in abundance. They will mature and then reproduce, and sew more seeds. A new generation of thoughts will proliferate, develop and grow in a same fashion as the parent thoughts.
Christmas is a good day to take notice and pay attention to the thought that we are choosing to birth. Christmas is the celebration of birth. This Christmas I am celebrating the birth of tiny itty-bitty loving and peaceful thoughts.
Will you join me?
Loving-kindness be with you, and reborn in you, again and again. Happy Christmas. Don¤

"Fashion your life as a garland of beautiful deeds."
Embrace Spirit – Embrace Humanity
When our lives are motivated by selfish resolve, we move further and further from our Reality. When we abolish our Spiritual Self in order to appease only the worldly or human self, then we have abandoned the essence of our True Being. We have become distracted.
When distracted, how do we return to the Spiritual Self? 1.) Decide to see God in everyone and everything. 2.) Be kind to what or who you see. 3.) Love that which/who you are giving your kindness. db¤
