May Blessing Come To ALL of Us

I wish you Solstice blessings— and I urge you to keep the Highest Vision you can for yourself and your family, your community and your world in the coming days. They are Holy, these next days, in that our attention turns to peace, our thoughts turn to the spiritual and our hearts yearn for merriment, friendship and warmth; they imprint the future with our intention.

The Universe is smiling, loving us all, right where we are … be sure you’re smiling back and making room for love to get bigger by the day.

Time is not my friend, lately — yours either, I’d expect. Much of the Christmas season has escaped me already so I’m going dark until after the 25th. I’d presume you’ll be too busy to notice.

I was running late today and I had to get out to do errands and it took twice the usual time to make my way through the crowds. A comment on the people I met today; most of them seemed dazed and confused.

There were plenty of folks that proved surly and rude, blocking the aisles and bumping each other … and a handful of patient, smiling people who exuded kindness and seemed to beam goodwill all around them. I thought about them on the trip home; while I recall the energy signal of those grumpy ones, I remember the details of the FACES of the others — they reached out and caught me in their energy. They blessed, today — may blessing return to them.

May blessing come to ALL of us, and may we recognize it when it arrives. The soft energy — love, kindness, respect — outdistances the harder much as sunlight fades darkness. We are discovering what real power is; welcome it in when it comes calling. It’s where we’re going next.

I wish you a most wonderful, warm and hopeful holiday this year. We have much to celebrate and much to anticipate. It looks like this [courtesy of Daily Dish]:

“Two years from now, I want the American people to be able to say, 'Government’s not perfect; there are some things Obama does that get on my nerves. But you know what? I feel like the government’s working for me. I feel like it’s accountable. I feel like it’s transparent. I feel that I am well informed about what government actions are being taken. I feel that this is a President and an Administration that admits when it makes mistakes and adapts itself to new information, that believes in making decisions based on facts and on science as opposed to what is politically expedient.' Those are some of the intangibles that I hope people two years from now can claim.”

~ Barack Obama, president-elect
