A Special Post for Christmas:

Thanks to all of you who have been reading this blog over the weeks on how the Three Principles bring us our experience moment to moment. I decided to do a special pause in that stream of blogs to focus on a Holiday greeting to anyone who catches this post.

It is a time of year that frequently brings us great stress – memories of happy times and memories of those that were not so happy. It can bring the joy of a child’s excitement and the sadness of a great loss.

Recently a good friend shared with me that a family member stricken with serious cancer has had a great moment of healing – and that same friend lost a family member tragically yesterday.

It can seem to us that life is kind one moment and bite us you know where the next. Many times Syd Banks was asked in one way or another if once we found the source of our experience, wouldn’t that guarantee a totally pain and stress free life. With a twinkle in his eye and a soft smile – he often said Life is a contact sport. It will bring us all that the human experience includes….but he also said the Greater Intelligence is always present in it all- always available to give us some wisdom as we traverse the territory.

And always within us are the deep feelings of love, kindness, forgiveness and appreciation for the way it holds us as we ride the waves.

This Christmas I am touched by those deep feelings coming to life in my friends, in my family and in the Spirit this season offers. I wish all of you that rest and celebration of the joy, no matter what you might be going through – and remember you are only one thought away from your complete happiness.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Love,
