In this season of love and celebration, many of you feel as if you do not have enough time to do all the things your heart desires. And yet dear ones, if you slow down, you can stretch time. If you remain present you can get so much more accomplished, and you can do it with love. If you choose to focus on the task at hand, doing it with love, and only doing it with love, then you will be filled with the energy of creation that is flowing through you! You will have more energy. You will be able to accomplish more. And best of all you will feel the joy of the season.
It is better to do less with more love, than more with less love. It is better to be present than to give presents. It is better to say, “I choose to give my loved ones my love in all that I do,” than to give them things without love. It is better to attend only those functions that your heart can joyously anticipate, than those functions that your mind dreads. It is better to send greetings with love, or send none at all.
Dear ones, this is a season that celebrates light coming into the world, burning miraculously bright, illuminating temples and mangers, hearts and souls. This is the season in which love is meant to rise up and be rebirthed within your very own heart! The Christ light lives within you! The oil burning miraculously in the temple symbolizes the endless light within your soul. You are none less than love, and this is the season to embrace that reality more than ever before.
By focusing upon your tasks with love, you give yourself the gift of love as well. You give yourself the gift of feeling the joy of the season, of feeling your very own love for the dear souls whom you love in your life. There is no greater gift you can give yourself than to feel the true essence of your being rising up from within and flowing into the world. In this reality time stretches out joyously, if not literally, making room for all that delights the soul. Be here. Be now. Embrace the moment and give both yourself and the world, the greatest gift of all… the gift of your soul’s loving Presence.
