Hanukkah, Christmas – Jew, Christian – Agnostic, atheist. Fill in the blank ______ Whatever you call yourself or others, it’s all about God.
Hanukkah and the menorah – they’re not about the Jew -they’re about God.
Christmas – Jesus – they’re not about Christians – they’re about God.
Agnostic, atheist – they’re not about independence – their antithesis is God.
Where ever people are with their identity, this Holy – holiday season,
it’s all about the spirit of the living God – the God who lives through you.
Regardless of what you believe or don’t believe,
right now, at this very moment, there is a spirit of love, joy, peace,
giving, forgiving, reconciliation, family love, grace and self-sacrifice
that is present all over the world. These are the spirit of God.
Maybe you’re not experiencing any of the above spiritual remedies.
Don’t blame God, don’t blame yourself, your family or people.
Change the realm of thought you’re living in. Start meditating on
these spiritual remedies and experience God. They don’t taste bad.
If you have trouble experiencing any of these traits at other times
during the year, maybe you should consider their source and seek
it out. By doing so, you may find yourself in this spirit most of the time,
not just at this holiday time of year.
No matter what you think about it or call it, or those who think about it.
It’s all about God.
Thank Him for all of the good you are experiencing right now,
and know that it’s really present, all of the time in our world,
if it is present within you. Give yourself a present this year,
the presence of God. May the peace of God be with you.
