Video Transcript:

It’s that time of the year again … it’s Christmas … and we start thinking about what we are going to buy … and for who … and then we might say … “It’s for the kids” as if that’s our justification for spending so much money and making so much fuss over trees and decorations and meals, festivities and pressies.

But is it really?  Is it really just for the children?

I think Christmas is about celebrating the spirit … the spirit that lives within you in each and every one of us no matter what belief system we have taken on board … no matter what religion, race, age or gender.  It is the way we all get to honour the sacred in other people … in ourselves … and in life itself.

It is about honouring and celebrating the sacred in you … your holy spirit … that part of you that loves … the part of you that loves to love … loves to give … loves to share … that part of you that just loves … for that is your spirit and your spirit is who you are.

This sacredness goes beyond any teaching or doctrine.  It just is.  It is about remembering that within each and everyone of us there is a spark – a sacred essence … our life-force … which connects us to all living things.  Christmas is about remembering that divine aspect without which there is no life and which lives inside every one of us and which we all get to express and thereby shape it’s expression.

We also get to choose how we do that … and even to what extent.  We also get to choose whether or not we even want to celebrate and honour that aspect of our life.  But it is a time that we have designated officially in our calendar year upon which we get to focus on the sacred in all of us.  You do it because you want to say/express something and whatever you do is your expression of God.

So celebrate who you are … and see it reflected in others … allow yourself to receive as well as give … it is in loving that we are loved … it is in sharing and caring that we show who we really are … and, when you show who you really are, you see your spirit … you see God … for God lives, breathes, exists and creates in you … and through you.   In this way you become a witness for God.  Christmas is about doing the everyday … the little … but on a large scale.

Let me know how you celebrate Christmas … what is the highlight for you?

    Love this one Cheryl!!! I am soooo looking forward to relaxing family time this year. I am going to go to church Xmas eve and hopefully take Nanny Pam because my spirit soars when singing a Christmas carol or two. Love to you and Holga xx

  2. Hi Karen … Hope Nanny Pam is on the mend now and you all have a fabulous Chrissy. Would love to see you if you are in the neighbourhood at all and catch up for a chrissy coffee! Love to Stuart and all the kids xoxo (and animals!)

  3. You have expressed this so well Cheryl. Thanks for making it simple and bringing me back to reaitly. We will be spending Christmas in Adelaide, the whole family in one house! Should be interesting! We are looking forward to being together, warts and all. I wish you and Holga a blessed Christmas. xxx

  5. You are sooo welcome Glenda … make the most of the day love and raise the energy and vibration on the planet. Thank you for your wishes and we will … look forward to a catch up again! love Cheryl xo

  6. How could I forget Chris … you walked into the shop one day with flowers for me! I am sooo glad you have ‘settled’ … you had a burning and powerful desire (which is always granted) and sometimes we just have to get ourself out of the road! I know it is the way for me. Have the best Christmas love and laugh until your belly hurts… and then some more. Look forward to seeing you when you are back home.

    I love being with family laughing playing games sharing food all made with pure love. It is about the pure love for me.

  8. Hi Sharon … yes its a time when we can all stop and focus then if we want to. The energy that is created by this focussing is unreal for us personally and collectively. I am so glad you can find that space to share with your family. It really is family time big time! Happy New Year love…

  9. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining,
    and let me tell you, you might have hit the nail on the head.
    Your thought is excellent; the problem is one thing that not sufficient persons are
    speaking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled across
    this in my seek for one thing referring to this.

  10. Glad you found it useful! :)
