Fill your heart like a vessel with the Christmas spirit. Take the time to let
your vision clear and your concern deepen. Allow your heart to overflow with all
the authentic gifts that this season has to offer.
The blessings and the wealth of Christmas can overflow from each of our
hearts, if we take the time to fill our hearts first. We are a world of
materially rich men and rich women who are spiritually impoverished by our very
wealth. The signs of that impoverishment are all around us. They push and shove
to get our attention, especially at this time of year.
But let us stop the rush and allow the spirit of the season to enter our
being. Let us clear our vision and deepen our concern. Let it move us away from
an isolating concern for self to a relationship of love and care and wonder and
joy with all of life around us.
