Mele Kalikimaka ~ Merry Christmas Day!
I truly believe there is an infinite wisdom blessing us, having Christmas Day arrive as we end one year, and look forward to the next. It is a holiday which helps each one of us be a little wiser, and pause, seeking to genuinely be much kinder to each other.
“As an American who celebrates Christmas, when people wish me ‘Happy Holidays’ I smile and thank them… yes, I celebrate Christmas even though I’m agnostic. Jesus was a cool dude.”
Ka lā hiki ola:
My hope with Aloha for you is that any pilikia (troubles or misfortune) brought by 2016 has faded away from your circumstance and your memories of it by now, and this, the most glorious birthday we celebrate, fills you with shiny hopes for the promise of 2017. Draw your loved ones close… my message for Christmas Day continues in this Special Edition of our Ho‘ohana Community newsletter.
Have a gloriously, ridiculously happy day.
“The world you see is just a movie in your mind.
Rocks don’t see it.
Bless and sit down.
Forgive and forget.
Practice kindness all day to everybody
and you will realize you’re already
in heaven now.
That’s the story.
That’s the message.”
—Jack Kerouac on Kindness, the Self Illusion, and the “Golden Eternity”
