Another year rolls to an end and again it is a time of retrospect and review of lessons learnt. We may recall that despite the commercialism of this holiday ‘Christmas’ the truth of what it stands for and that although gift-giving is wonderful that our ‘presence’ is always more significant than our ‘presents’. http://www.journeywithjair.blogspot.com/search/label/presence
In addition to our giving of gifts this holiday; let us also give the gift of spirits! I do not only mean ‘spirits’ as in alcohol! :D But also the spirit of good-cheer! The spirit of forgiveness! The spirit of trust! And the spirit of acceptance! “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom and the man that getteth understanding”. We are all here on a journey through life – all discovering and learning along the way. Which one of us are perfect? Therefore let us embrace our imperfections and embrace and appreciate each other during this season and always.
As one of our heroes Gandhi said: “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong”. And another of our female earth-bound angels, Mother Teresa taught us, that “People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway”. It is through forgiveness that we are able to truly experience freedom, peace and transformation. It is a gift we can give to ourselves and also to others. When we forgive, we in turn are able to be forgiven. My darlings keep being true and listening to your feelings for your lessons and answers lie within them.
As the year also comes to an end, we similarly complete the current spiritual awakening and transformation that has been guiding us to this point. We should give thanksgiving and alms to the poor, helpless and less-fortunate as well practice prayer and meditation. We can trust that we will continue to have our paths guided and that once we are thoughtful, mindful and kind that harmony, inner peace and blessings are sure to follow. J
Wishing all my readers a lovely season and thanking you for your support and dedication by reading and sharing the joys of the film world as well as our journey together here on earth. May your blessings be multiplied and you have the desires of your heart! J Remember that we hold the power within to love and heal the world!
