24/12/2015 | eaglespi | Leave a comment It’s Christmas Eve and I am checking in with you all. Saw some tears out there so let me remind you of something ok? How things were, doesn’t have to be how they are. Often the sadness means we are in the past. For those grieving past Christmases or still working through issues of the past, please remember that you can create your now. And whether it is Martha Stewart ‘perfect’ or more like Stuart Mclean’s story of when Dave cooked the turkey… that is just the outside. The feelings, the sense of presence and birth are what are more important. Sacred even! “I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.” Charles Dickens Well with that in mind, I invite you to slow down for a few moments and get quiet so that you can give this a go.
