I watched a movie the other day called The Christmas Cottage. In the movie the words “even in the darkest night, a small light has something to share.” These words resonated with me over and over again. My take on that strong sentence was that everyone no matter how big or small has something to share or give.
A smile, a pat of the back, a nod or a hello to a stranger can mean so much. You may not know this person really has a need to be acknowledged and actually seen. Perhaps the person feels unloved or invisible. Kind gestures can make a difference in someone’s day or life. Lending a helping hand to someone who is unable, preparing a meal for someone who is hungry, taking an interest in an elderly person who has no one to share with, are just a few examples of things we can do to bring on the light stronger.
We are so caught up in the buying, that we forget that Christmas is not just a holy holiday, but should be a lifestyle. Its message is giving, sharing with others, with no return required. It is a feeling of gratitude for what we have, and a chance to share that gratitude with someone who may not be so fortunate.
The world can be just a little more kinder, a little more gentle, if only we remember that WE are the light in the darkness, and it doesn’t take much to brighten the world no matter how small or big our world is. We are all one in this universe. We are all connected by spirit and energy. If we all channel this ideal, what light the world would have!
Merry Christmas everyone! I would like you to share in the comment section how you share your light throughout the year.
