Christmas has very little to do with real life. By all means celebrate it however you wish.
Reality though is who you are and what you do every day.
You are not what you believe. By all means believe in whomever and whatever you wish. Just don't place too much emphasis on your beliefs.
Who you are and what you do every day matters way beyond your beliefs.
You are not even your thoughts. You are the human being having your thoughts.
It took me a very long time of learning and mastering meditation to understand this. And this is an ongoing journey!
You are who you choose to become. And you get to decide many times every day as I explore in this post.
The best way that I know of to continually make wise choices is to see life as a gift we never stop unwrapping.
To do this we need to stay curious. We need a sense of wonder and awe about life. Life is more about questions than answers.
Loved ones, friends, colleagues, neighbours and even strangers must be cherished. We travel the journey of our life alone yet the great paradox is that we need other people for it to matter, have meaning and to be worthwhile.
I wish you and yours all the very best.
