The Two Most Prized Gifts This Christmas Day…

The two most prized gifts this Christmas Day are…the gift of Love…and the gift of Life…

The Universe has given humanity the task of extending life through love…by understanding and utilizing the meaning of “unconditional.”

The true meaning of Christmas which began to shift in the mid-19th century is “To give up one’s very self—to think of others…how to bring the greatest happiness to others.”

This Christmas we were tasked with choosing to adhere to the standing protocol involving social distancing and mask wearing to curb and slow down the spread of a raging plague classified as Covid-19, which came into being near the beginning of the year.  Many ignored protocol…and the virus gathered uncontrollable momentum and has now mutated to a strain that is faster in its ability to infect, increasing its reach into groups, such as people under the age of 30 and young children, nearly tripling its rate of mortality overall.

We have the ability to give life…by caring about the lives of others…by practicing social precautions known to arrest the spread of this deadly disease.  That includes traveling…

Can we care about others more than we care about ourselves?  The sacrifice that brought forth Christmas Day was the birth of a savior…who would one day sacrifice his life…to save humanity from the ravages of sin…whereby granting everlasting life by giving up his own self…by thinking of others.

The excuses made to ignore the simplest of short-term remedies in order to get back to normalcy are weak and selfish and without regard to others and their right to life.

There will be mothers and fathers…grandmothers and grandfathers…sisters and brothers…children and grandchildren…aunts and uncles…cousins and friends…who will lose their lives, because someone and many… felt they could ignore protocols, and live life as if it were normal…in the Age of Covid-19.

So many asymptomatic individuals are passing the virus onto others… Think of the thousands who could be spared and saved from this avenue of transmission if everyone wore a mask?

If doctors and nurses and other healthcare personnel, who are willing to put your life first…before their lives… and many have given up their lives in treating and caring for those stricken with this horrific disease…can’t we also love life enough to give the gift of life to another?

Out of love, we can give the gift of life through love…we can give the gift of life through helping those who are less fortunate in making it through this devastating trial of life altering circumstances…we must remember that any one of us can be touched by the tragedy of the Coronavirus…any one of us can be touched by the threat of eviction…any one of us has and can lose our livelihoods…but in the midst of it all…we must remember our humanity.  We have…and always will be…our brother and sister’s keeper…no matter what race…culture…creed…or any form of diversity…our purpose is to realize the connectivity we share with every living creature…the breath of life does not discriminate…it is the life of life… Un-conditionality must bring us to this realization…Love…must bring us to this realization….

This Christmas Day…out of darkness…light can come forth…through each and every one of us…The power of humanity’s longevity…is in your hands…and mine.

No act is too small…given out of love…it becomes a great miracle to one in need…

You are the first day of someone’s life…

Practice social distancing…

Wear a mask…

Please restrict your travel for just a little longer…

Donate a can of food to your local food bank…

Give a dollar or two to a charity that you know will help someone who has lost their home…or will help them save it.

You are chosen to save a life…by giving life…

Your importance isn’t measured by what you have or how much you can give…

You are important because you are the continuity of life…through your gift of love…through your gift of sharing the breath of life…

You are the giver of Christmas miracles…

The importance of Christmas…is you.

This Christmas Day, the two most prized gifts are the gift of Love…and the gift of Life…and you possess them both…

You have the free-will to exercise the giving…

Will you?

The Universe is watching….

Godspeed you the courage to honor your gifts…

Merry Christmas…2020.
