Most assuredly, there are times in your life when you and your values have been and will be challenged, questioned and perhaps even attacked. It is precisely those moments, those fleeting instants in eternity, when clarity of purpose and commitment to life bubble up to the crown of your existence, becoming distilled, purified and emblazoned.
Energy levels go through the roof, distractions vaporize into the ether and the thirst for truth is unquenchable. We need to pay attention to these transient moments of awareness, however few they are in our lives, as they represent our essence as human beings, spiritual children and eternal souls.
There are indeed, places and times for light-heartedness, carefree expression and basking in the atmosphere of joy. Indeed, these purposeful times cleanse our hearts, minds and souls, rejuvenating us in repose; and are necessary and healing experiences in our lives.
They only serve, however, to sustain our life, not to defend, honor, proclaim; or fulfill it. Each of us must know we are expressly here for a higher purpose, more than to frolic like sheep in a meadow or soar on the wings of eagles. At its infinitesimal level, life beckons a more solemn tone, albeit woven in the throws of love, faith, goodwill and salvation.
We have a job to do here, and it behooves us as the tools and messengers of this job, to craft our methods, refine our approaches and perform as though our lives depend on it; because they do.
And no time does this become clearer, as a Christian, for me, than at Christmas. My heart becomes filled with compassion, my mind with goodwill of helping whomever I can touch with my melody, my words and my love for humanity.
“I am, literally, driven to tears for I know, deep within my soul, of the stark reality of why we are here, together as a chorus of song, sharing our lives, helping each other to become more like the One we worship.”
As this magnificent celebration approaches, as we subconsciously count down the days, hours and minutes to that cherished event, let us remember, Why it exists, What it means and How it transforms us as Spiritual children.
If you truly seek Peace, then live your life as testimony to that end. If you sincerely Love others, then consciously and deliberately Do and Behave in the manner reflective of love. If you desire Goodness in your heart, then undeniably reach out to others in good Faith. And above all, do these things with compassion for people; without regard to how others perceive your efforts; by overcoming all obstacles and resistance and by simply letting your energy and love flow from your heart as pristine water pours down a waterfall in the forest.
It makes no difference whether anyone witnesses your actions, because it only matters that you know and that should be reason enough to pursue goodness in your life. Remember the lesson that whatever intention is sent out by you, eventually returns back to you. Make it be a noble intention, for your sake. Never stop pursuing to become who you are capable of becoming. Be well.
