A time is approaching when we will look forward with expectation to a moment of the unknown, of joyful anticipation, when we join together to find treasures, hidden for some time, but now exposed but still concealed for us to find within a pretty paper package.
Some of us can’t wait and rip open the package to immediately gratify our lust for something which we hope will bring us happiness and joy. We hope at the same time that we will not be disappointed!
Others of us practise the art of delayed gratification: leaving the best until last, and carefully unsealing and unwrapping the paper to reveal perhaps another box inside, that may give us a clue as to its treasured contents. We investigate further to find maybe one or possibly two or more gifts stored within which again we carefully bring to the light of our expectant day. We call it Christmas Day.
Within your Soul is the complete package of the potential for this your life, but it is merely potential, the plan of how this life is meant to be for you. As the light of each day breaks you are presented with the potential of a new gift to further your plan.
‘The past is gone and the future is yet to be but each day is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.’
The significance of Christmas Day has disappeared for me since I recognise every day as a gift from the Divine and each day is an opportunity to shower the greatest gift of love on all my loved ones, all those who would set themselves against me and all whom I have the chance to meet in moments of divine synchronicity.
As I search for the next layer and level of beauty, wisdom, joy and happiness contained within each daily gift, I recognise the unique partnership between mind and spirit to negotiate this life path under the guiding light of the storehouse of the passive Soul within.
The Soul light is like an onion unpeeling that each day reveals yet another beam of beauty, another prize of passion, another treasure of wisdom.
Whether you want to take each day as it comes or try to see everything at once is absolutely OK , but remember that both methods have the potential for peace.
What do I mean by that? Well, the free-will element of your gift package ensures that whichever way you choose is absolutely fine since you are the only one that matters here and it is your choice to pick the package that suits your ideas, feelings and beliefs.
Excited children of all ages may discard the wrapping in their extreme excitement and exuberance, but you should remember that each daily gift is wrapped in the prettiest package of peace.
Within your Soul is the highest potential to pursue your purpose which you may monitor on a daily basis through those precious, peaceful moments of your HPT (Highly Precious Time) of Meditation.
It is your life, and only you have the potential to bring the perfection of peace into every breath and every step you take on your pathway. Peace, the perfect wrapping of every thought word and deed, in addition to what lies within, is there for the taking, the keeping, and also the giving.
Which way will you choose? Will you rush to get it all at once or will you relish the reward of daily gifts, blessed with peace throughout your unique life?
In Peace, David
