Friday Inspiration - 19 December 2008
By Melissa Bult

Christmas Spirit
This is the final inspiration for 2008 and as per usual the theme is Christmas. 
I must say I have found it really hard to get into the Christmas spirit this year. There has been so much going on and the year has flown by, so the reality that Christmas is upon us has not quite sunk in.  This seems to have been a theme with many people and I guess there are many reasons for it. 
A person who is very dear to my heart announced the other night that he hates Christmas because his parents are divorced.  This got me thinking about the pressure that we put on this one day.  Reality for many people does not change simply because of the date.  In fact in some ways our realities are reflected at us more – the loved one’s who have passed, those who can not be with us, feeling lonely, family problems, finances…etc…
Now it is Christmas and the last thing I want to do is bring you all down!  The point I am trying to make is this Christmas why not take the pressure off a little.  I got all down about it a few weeks ago and was quickly reminded that it will be whatever I make it.  We can decide how we want to create our reality of Christmas.   Choose to make it a positive experience.
If nothing else use the time to give to someone in need or tell someone how much you love and appreciate them.  Put resentments and problems aside and try to remember that the truth behind everything is love.  Even if you are not religious you can appreciate the point of Christmas – Christ.  The recognition of the Christ within all of us which is simply our highest selves in action. 
Put your Christ self into action this Christmas time and pray for those in need, give love to everyone you meet, acknowledge yourself as a Divine being and spread joy because joy is infectious. 
Remember the only way to experience receiving is first to give – so give love, joy, peace and light and enjoy the miracles it will create. 
Have a magical Christmas and a happy New Year.  Be safe and have fun! 
Friday inspiration will be back on January 9th 2009.
A huge thank you for all your love and support this year!  I am sending you all loads of love and blessings for a great holiday season.
