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…
