I talked to a friend yesterday who was bitching about how stupid holidays are because people are artificially “nice” to each other and as soon as the holiday is over they go back to being their old greedy self centered self. I don’t agree with that.
Pick a day to be kind and generous and compassionate and caring and loving. Then go ahead and be that. I find great strength in knowing that the human race, has that ability. No we don’t seem to be able to sustain that position over a lone period. But isn’t it awesome that we can do it at all?
My Hypothesis is that we don’t change on holidays, the holidays allow us to be who we genuinely are inside. Kind, caring, loving, compassionate, and engaged people. The Holidays are just a portal that says its OK to actually be genuine.
My belief is as long as we can designate times that open that portal there will be the chance that we can become constantly aware that we don’t need approval to be genuine and caring. Inside it’s what we are capable of by decision.
May everyday find you engaged and aware of who you are inside.
Very, very, Deep Bows to everyone.
