I wish you all a Merry Christmas filled with the warmth of family…and may you relax in the knowing that some of that warmth comes from the ever-present friction that is natural in all families, for this is what causes us to grow and change at the core.
#12 – May this Christmas bring us truly new lives in which we remember how to sing and dance. Under every tree may we find treasures of hard-earned insight and wisdom. May we celebrate our age and good health, and may our stockings be filled with possibility and sass!
#11 – May an expansion of consciousness free us all from illusions of grandeur, control, and unnatural majesty. May we learn to recognize when the king has no clothes… when the grandeur is false, the control is constricting, and the majesty is a foolish waste… and realize that we seek only to know the truth.
#10 – May we move past the limitations of religion and into true spirituality, which is the development of the spirit of your true self. Whether you hold a spirit of adventure, inventiveness, nesting, healing, building, baking, designing, study, or whatever, let it fire your passion then follow it. This is what leads to true spirituality… and it will be unique to you.
#9 – May men and women figure out the framework of the new relationships of the future that balance commitment, freedom, integrity, respect, and the need to continue developing one’s consciousness. The object of a relationship is not to preserve the relationship, it is to be mirrors for one another…and to enjoy the gift of life while you have it.
#8 – May we awaken from the political hypnosis of thinking the government makes all the decisions. At some point we need to embrace our own inner authority. May we do so freely, quietly, joyously, and with an attitude of immovable steadiness.
#6 – May we recognize that we cannot build a good life or a sustainable civilization on a base of debt and destruction. Nor can we have endless growth…only endless change.
