Christmas 2002

May the blessing of the returning light shine within you.

May the blessing of the all-embracing darkness bring you dream and vision, and may the light of the star guide you.

May you experience the blessing of the precious life that is your greatest gift, this Christmas season and always.

At this time of the returning light, open your most precious gift. Honor your life, hold yourself with joy, love your self without judgment. Take a moment to contemplate the precious gift of life, the precious gift of being you. It is the greatest gift of all: that you are born.

At this time, the stories say, the heavens ring with hymns of praise and celebration: Halleluiah! The Christ is born! Allow that song of praise and celebration to sing itself in your heart, the core of your being: Halleluiah! You are born! He is born! She is born! Everywhere at every moment, with every breath, the Christ is born.

Now, when the world is unsettled, and fear is strong, and so many live in pain and sorrow, and under the threat of violence, remember the gift of life. It is so tender and fragile, so strong and triumphant. It is so full of joy, and so full of sorrow. Within the gift of life is the gift of love. Within the gift of love is the gift of peace. Those gifts are there, waiting to be opened, at every moment. May we remember this.

May all beings be happy, peaceful and free of suffering.
