Moms, have you looked in the eyes of your baby and seen or at least sensed the wisdom of the ages? One of my favorite Christmas songs is “Mary Did You Know?” Several phrases from the song are…’did you know that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters?’ …’did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?’ …’the lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the dead will live again…’ Wow, what potential for a baby. Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, William Keen (first doctor to successfully remove a brain tumor), Joan of Arc, Charles Drew (physician who developed procedure for separating plasma from whole blood), Florence Nightingale, Marie Curie, John Kennedy, Susan B Anthony, Thomas Edison, Billie Holiday, Alexander Graham Bell, Madonna, Billy Graham, Diana-Princess of Wales, John Lennon (and all the other Beatles) and Elvis Presley, were all once someone’s baby. I’m not making light of the profound work Jesus still does. However, I believe the most extreme compliment is emulation; and Jesus did say we are all capable of performing the same acts as He. Therefore, as we celebrate the birthday of a man who came into the world a homeless baby, yet managed to start a chain reaction throughout the world that is still rolling through the ages, let us recall that he said “Let the little children come to me and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Celebrate this Christmas Season by looking into the eyes of your babies, your grandbabies, great grandbabies, all children everywhere, and see the pure, limitless potential they all have been endowed with by the Creator to continue the chain reaction that continues to change the world.

Recently while watching the news my boyfriend and I had a conversation about the fact people really haven’t changed much…ever. People are committing the same crimes and atrocities against themselves and nature that they have always committed. There is still jealousy, anger, prejudice, ignorance, abuse, rape and murder. Sadly, these negative energies have plagued mankind since mankind was created. In college I wrote a paper for an Anthropology class on why the Mesopotamian society needed religion. Basically, life was too much for them and they needed to believe something(s) or someone(s) were in control of all the things they could not. They needed to believe the drought which caused their crops to die, the illness which took the life of their child, or the wild animal which attacked and killed a husband, were caused by an angry God who was punishing them because of some ritual they didn’t perform or some sacrifice they didn’t make. It is thought provoking that even with all the technological advances the human race has made, human nature really hasn’t changed much. People are still afraid. Afraid of animals, weather, natural and man made disasters, space events involving stars, planets, meteors, comets, etc., even other people. So do we still need God? My opinion is yes. We need a more “Spirit”ual relationship with God and all other Spirits in the Universe. The human heart, even those scarred by trauma and abuse, are capable of great sympathy, compassion and love. Fear is what blocks these positive energies. By connecting with and reaching for a relationship with all Spirits, including THE Creator of All, we can release and neutralize FEAR which is the seed of all negative energy. Everything we perceive as “bad”, “wrong”, “negative” is based in and comes from a place of fear. By opening ourselves to God (or whatever name feels comfortable for you), we can live from a place of compassion, understanding and love. I’m willing to bet all life forms will always need God.
Having recently undergone some life altering events, I am experiencing new and different ways to use my time. I love the holidays and find myself observing the festivities from a new perspective. With a new schedule for my time and responsibilities, I am encountering shifts in my energy…all my energy; mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. There have been days I have been feeling what I first labeled as “lazy.” But my tendency to over-think everything got me to analyzing the difference between “lazy” and “resting.” Lazy is an unwillingness to work, being listless and inactive, a slothful, apathetic attitude. This is not what I have been feeling at all. Rest is relief, break, recess, quiet, ease and relaxation. I’m still dealing with responsibilities and normal daily requirements for living. What I initially perceived as laziness is actually my intuition and internal barometer telling me to rest. The recent life altering events which were totally out of my control have afforded me the opportunity to rest, to recharge my batteries and re-inspire my heart and soul. Since I came to this realization, I am not so hard on myself. Even God rested after creating the earth. I now see these life changing events as the Universe, God and other spirits who walk with me every day, giving me rest I would not have given myself under any other circumstances and they have also provided me with new paths to walk and new choices to make with the gifts and talents I have to offer.
