Christmas is a special time of year, it is a time to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. We in this Society have lost sight of the true meaning of Christmas, we have fallen for the corporate trap of, we need to spend our time in the stores, to buy the biggest and best gifts, in order to be excepted by other’s, we spend our hard earned money, so the corporations can get richer, as we get poorer, this time of year you walk into a store and people are literally fist fighting each other, on the streets people drive without thinking, they cut you off, just so they can get to the store ahead of you, people tend to think that Christmas is about them and won’t bother with you all year, unless you buy them a gift for Christmas.
The true meaning of Christmas is Love and the giving of yourself, so other’s around you can be happy, so they to can give themselves to other’s around them, when Jesus walked this Planet, he did so with the clothes on his back and sharing his Love of everybody he came into contact with, he gave his love and himself, so all of us, could be happy, spread his word, spread our love, so to make the hatred go way.
There are yet a small majority of us, that don’t believe in God, that is fine you have that right, but what you don’t have the right to do is, push your beliefs and views on those of us that do believe in God. When God created this Planet and created us as well, he did so with the vision of, we walk this Earth as he did, showing our love of one another, having true Empathy and compassion of each other, instead of objectifying each other, look at each other with love knowing that we all have feelings, that can be hurt and that we are somebody, God wants nothing more than all of us to get along, love each other as we love ourselves and enjoy the fruits of his labor, it’s not just during Christmas, it is all year everyday.
As we embark on this Christmas season, let’s do so knowing we are celebrating the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ, there will be some of us that struggle during this time of year, whether they have lost a loved one, or whatever the case may be, let us all unite showing the love that God wants us to, so as to make this season happy for everybody around us, it is the spirit of giving ourselves, not the spirit of buying the biggest and best gift, that is a material gift and not a real gift, like ourselves and spreading the love of our hearts, to all those around us.
To say the words ” I love you” is one thing, to say these words and really mean it from the heart is totally different, we in this Society throw these words around, like buying candy from a candy store, we don’t say these words with any kind of true feeling anymore, true love is more special, than any kind of feeling you will ever have, wherever there is true love being expressed, you will never see any hate or anger, true love is the most genuine feeling, of anything that we may encounter, on our journey of life.
Nelson Mandela was a great man, did alot of good not just for his country, but for the entire world and to quote him is an honor, ” we are not born to hate, we have to learn this, so if we can learn to hate, we can also learn to love, as love comes more naturally from the heart”. These are words for all of us to live by, not just during this Christmas season, but everyday of our lives, as we walk this planet, on our journey of life.
