Thoughts about Christmas



Today’s eyes are watching
What presents are given
Comparations, expectations
The higher the value –
The better the gift

Focus lies on the presents
Forgotten the real meaning
Burried under selfishness
Traditions with barbed hooks
Commercial celebrations

Christmas – a family meeting
In exchange of giving and taking
Feast of filling stomachs
Exaggerated games of the mind
Assessed time to be happy

Beyond the market rush, shoppings
Let the peace flow into your thoughts
To give presents from your heart:
Kindness, modesty, respect, devotion
A priceless gift for everyone

Not just on these holy days
Then every day becomes holy
In memory of Jesus Christ
A celebration of the heart
Living Christmas days, harmony shared

Service to man, not service to our ego
With open hearts to spread love
Through sharing and caring
A gratitude in itself
To plant happiness in every eye

Christmas, a feast for everyone
As we all belong to one family: mankind!
Not in the sense of business
But as an affair of the heart
In this sunshine we all can meet, take a bath…

Day by day…

  1. I just had a meaningful conversation with someone about this yesterday. My husband and I have done away with “buying” gifts. We’re all about time with loved ones and friends. Showing kindness, generosity, and love all throughout the year and sprinkling it with a little extra sentiment around Christmas, after all, God gave the most precious gift of love and it’s only right for us to apply the same love and generosity toward others. ❀️

    I hope You’re having a wonderful day my dear friend! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much, dear Jenna πŸ™‚ Indeed, we all are from the same essence as that of God (God is love, life, light, all-consciousness) – and we are a drop of this mighty Ocean. So we are able to share love, if our mind is not interferring – the language of the heart is known to everyone, so we should allow our heart to express itself with compassion and love. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and words, my dear friend πŸ™‚
      All what is good for you soul πŸ™‚

  2. “To give presents from your heart” is something we all should do every day not just on Christmas days, for love does not need a special time to be shared. It is All and eternal!
    Beautiful, Didi!
    Thank you for sharing!
    All the best to you, every single day of your life! πŸ™‚
