Merry Christmas  It has been said  that the source of energy is within each of us.  It appears to me that love is the source of energy.  The first rule of celebrating Christmas is to take a moment to celebrate yourself and the magnificent service of your body and mind.  If you would take a moment and give yourself a gift of the present moment.  Take a deep breath of satisfaction.  Take a moment to think about the amazing production that is taking place right now in your circulatory system.  Take a moment to think about how lucky you are to see this computer and the words I am writing.  Amazing.

I don’t even know you, but I am able to reach out to you.  This is the miracle of the present moment.  This is something I can be grateful for and celebrate.  I can enjoy myself.  And, when I love myself I can find it oh so easy to love others.  As I love others I find that there is no limit to my love.  At this time of year, I am grateful for life within and without me.

Just a reminder: the happiness of the holidays does not have to exist only within large gatherings.  It can be found with as few as one, although it can be magnified with another or others.  The point here is that life is here for all of us, no matter how many or how few are around our table.

Be at peace and freely enjoy yourself!
