Joy is all you must reach for and then begin immediately looking for the evidence that it is indeed created and finding itself into the present. No matter where you are on the scale of joy you can advance to higher places. Joy is the state when what is coming to you experiences little if any resistance and greater and greater degrees of freedom. This is just the way it is and the way it has always been. When you are in love, things work.
Santa and his gifts are the dreams of every child during this season. Carols are sung during this season. These songs bring out the Christmas message and the splendor of the season. This season also offers a lot of room for sharing and caring for the poor. Jesus was born in a manger and proclaimed that he is for the poorest of the poor.
Many families still want to cut down their own Christmas tree, instead of buying those plastic ones in shopping malls. Hunting for a tree is a really fun family activity. There may be a local tree farm nearby, or you need to travel a few more miles. No matter how near or how far, there is always an additional glee in everyones heart thinking that the holiday tree the living room was cut down by Mom and Dad.
Its not difficult because you only need to reach for better feeling thoughts about everything that comes your way. This is the deliberate choice you always have. You can expect things to be miraculous or you can be influenced by the situations and circumstances of your personal life. That is a remarkable gift each of us possesses.
When you hear a Christmas carol, you cant help but be reminded of those happy Christmas times during your childhood. What particular childhood memories are brought back every year?
