You are all so beautiful! Like ornaments on a tree, each one of you is unique, different, beautiful and in perfect form for each and every lesson you want to learn. You are souls in bodies, and your bodies are not only your vehicles but your teachers. Be kind to them. Take care of them. Treat them lovingly and nurture them in whatever way you please. Listen to their needs. Reshape them if you wish. Create bigger muscles or a smaller waist, but whatever you do, realize that you are so much more.
You are nothing less than the light and love of God in the form of a beautiful human body. In our eyes, you are all perfect exactly as you are! Every wrinkle, every dimple, every freckle, every bit of thin or fat, every gray hair, big nose, crooked tooth…. you are perfect! Would you ask nature to look the same all the time? Not at all. The beauty in the forest or the ocean lies in its great diversity. So too with the human race. It is your diversity that makes you all so very special, precious, beautiful. Your body is a teacher, and it is shaped by the soul for the purpose of its expansion into greater awareness. Love what you think you cannot, and watch not only your body but also your awareness of love transform.
The manger is your body. The light of Christmas is in your soul. The oil lamp is your body. The light that burns unceasingly is your soul. Let your light rise up within you simply by your intention. “Dear God today I want to experience the truth of my being.” Focus on your heart. Feel the love inside of it. Imagine you are that love, that light, simply shaped as a human being, interacting with other people who are also made of that light…whether they know it or not.
Try just looking at life this way today… as if everyone, including you is a miraculous expression of love. Indeed you all are! The light of the season lives and breathes in, and through, each and everyone one of you.
