Christmas in Your Heart

Aug 17, 2007
"You can create what you want in life; first you have to imagine it clearly. Imagine your ideal scene," said Marc Allen.

How do you use your imagination to transform your life on this special day?

You can use this day to create Christmas in your heart. This is a way of being that emulates the vision of the Christ. His entire vision was to teach people unconditional love.

In this unhappy world, your shift in attitude will raise the sea for all of humankind. All it takes is for you to change the way your own consciousness ripples across the surface of the ocean of humanity.

What would happen if from this day on you took to heart the Kantian imperative and acted as if your example influenced everyone? Imagine if from this day on you acted only in the name of the highest good.

Christmas happens once a year, but you can evoke Christmas within all year long and into the next one, too. It is an attitude of joviality, unconditional love, and humanitarian interest. Furthermore, do it without expectation of reward.

If Scrooge could do it, so can you. Is an attitude of goodwill to others really that difficult?

Nor is this an exclusive ideal reserved for just those in the Christian tradition. Unconditional lovingness affects everyone. It crosses all narrow boundaries of "them" and "us." It sees no enemies anywhere. It advocates peace, not hatred.

Envision if meeting YOU was a transformative experience. Strangers would automatically pick up on your vibration of joy and forgiveness. They would, in fact, become aware of their own spiritual essence, which is pure and unsullied by the world. And you would not have spoken a word. They would just KNOW.

What would happen to your world if you stopped resisting love and even helped strangers in trouble without fear of getting hurt?

In all of time, and for all of humankind, you, in your humble little way, would be having an IMPACT. It would be so subtle that not even you would be aware of it.

So what is it that I am suggesting?

I am inviting you to go forth from this special day on with a desire to become a person of unconditional loving kindness.

You will not only transform yourself but the world around you...and the hope, the joy, and the ultimate purpose of humankind will become obvious again.

Is this an impractical suggestion?

Has anyone ever done it before?

What about your dog.

Can you really tell me that you as a human being with your impressive intellect cannot replicate the good-heartedness of a dog?
