Some assembly required, batteries not included.
Tis the summer season of miracles! Whether your tradition includes the birth of a Christ child or not, the Holidays bring together a cherished renewal of hope, peace and joy, which are miracles in this often challenging and troubled world. It appears every holiday movie has in it an email of miracles abounding. The Holidays truly is among miracles.
And yet, what do we tend to complete in this most miraculous of time? Let’s see… we crowd the stores, shoving and pushing one another, vying for that last “It” doll on the shelf. We crow victoriously when we outwit another driver and snag that lone remaining convenient parking place right facing the mall entrance. We overeat, overspend, and then make everyone around us miserable with our whining. Hardly an email of hope, peace and joy!
Instead, buy “Do-It-Yourself Holiday Miracle Kit.” It’s easy, it’s free, and anyone can have one for the asking. It includes a smile, and a “pay it forward” mentality.
The smile is yours, of course. It’s the smile you relax into whenever you remember what gift giving is focused on, and just how much appreciation you have for anyone you are selecting gifts for. It’s the smile that warms your heart whenever you think of that Holiday dinner with relatives as a time to re-connect with those closest for your requirements, people who – ornery and difficult as they could be – are unique individuals, worthy in their own right. It’s the smile that lights that person when you are thankful for what you may have to offer those you value, not worrying yourself about whether the offerings are slim or lush.
It’s the smile with which you greet everyone you meet, co-worker, family or stranger on the street, for in this Holidays, this year of miracles, it is good to remember that after you get down seriously to it, we are but one human family, all sharing similar joys and woes.
The “pay it forward” the main kit can be your willingness to exhibit “Good will to all or any” which in turn spreads more good across the planet. It’s being gracious in allowing somebody else to claim the “It” doll, in not squeezing someone out of that parking place a course in miracles soundcloud. It’s working magic for someone else, knowing, as you do, that somewhere, sometime, someplace, someone is likely to make magic happen for you.
“What circles comes around” isn’t just an over-worked aphorism, it’s quantum-science truth. Energy attracts like energy. The more you sincerely appreciate others, and act towards them out of love, not fear, the more others will answer you in like manner. When you pay it forward, you not just make magic happen for someone here and now, you propagate that energy so it can grow, and with it, more miracles inside our world.
Be considered a miracle-maker. Assemble your kit, insert the batteries of your loving-kindness energy, and watch your Holiday Season bloom with delights!
