It is slowly approaching us, almost sneaking up and somehow everything is different in the air now. The Christmas spirit, the light of Christmas, the spirit of attention, love, wishes, expectations, the spirit that drives us to show the best of us… Already with the last days of November, nothing is the same again, in December, most of us seem to have some halo and some of the light we carry with us everywhere. But with January, everything slowly begins to fade. It’s like we get tired of being good, better, best… Christmas Spirit
Let It Last
If we let that light last in us, who knows what would be? Let’s try, let’s not wait for someone else to do it. We are so tired, we make bills, we make cross-sections, we round up, we finish, we measure, we weigh, we draw a line, we make decisions, we plan for new beginnings, we do everything that people do when they finish and prepare to start over. Rare ones, hoping that most things will happen again, and most, hoping that it is high time that some beautiful, desirable things happen …
Who still has the power, dreams, believes, hopes. Who doesn’t, he either pretends to have it, or he won’t even pretend, though somewhere deep inside he is aware that he wouldn’t mind a miracle happening.
What Do We Have in Common?
But what we all have in common, no matter how we are at this moment, before another Christmas in our lives, is this spirit. It is the contagious spirit of something sublime, solemn, benevolent, gentle, sentimental, caring, romantic, humane, a spirit of love, attention, the need to give, do and wish good. The spirit of something that restores faith in a better.
This gives us the strength to move from scratch, rejoice us, nurture children within us that we almost forgot. It sets into action, makes everything somehow easier and more certain. To make every anguish at least a little more bearable, every pain at least a little less painful.
I pray this time, too, that he will not leave us again tomorrow, or that we will not leave him, just in the habit, for the sake of order, because of everyday life, unbelief, misery… maybe that is why it is called that way, it sneaks, wins us over and suddenly, we didn’t even turn around, he’s gone. I wonder if we should hold him more firmly, belief stronger, fight more?
Have you ever wondered what we would all look like, sound like, and how different our lives would be when we started to nurture that beautiful holiday spirit just a little longer, if only for a few more days, months? It doesn’t even have to be in full light and power, but here it is, so much so that it is there so that we do not forget about it tomorrow.
That tomorrow also makes us better, stronger and more positive people. And it leads us to where we want to be and to walk together. That’s because Christmas brings with it that message as much as we can if we believe and how big we are even when we are small.
Let’s keep the essence of Christmas
I just want to give you a few very important things, to begin with – to keep the essence of Christmas and the holidays in us for as long as possible. That faith, those threads in our hands, not to forget everything tomorrow. And to give ourselves and others the best of us.
It would be great if we simplified the complicated, didn’t complicate simple things, to not let anything prevent us from going the path we chose. I think it’s a good start. And then every day we learn things we used to know and forgot. This is the easiest way to learn from children. The younger the children are, the more we will be able to learn from them. In those little heads is all that brings joy back to life.
The rest will be a matter of creativity for each of us. It is an opportunity for wonderful creations in a wonderful spirit, which can produce a wonderful reality. Interested in what it would be like? Isn’t that the wish of us all? Let’s allow it to last. Let’s try step one, now! Because we don’t need Christmas and holidays just now, we need that spirit every day…
Many people mix Christmas spirit with spending large amounts of money on gifts. Mixing love and attention with the amount of money spent is something completely wrong. Ask those who can buy everything with money and ask them if it makes them happy and can compensate them for what they cannot buy, and they do not have it … There is no money, gift or purchase that will make up and fill the inner void. It fills with nourishing heat.
