Gift

Christmas is a time for gifts - giving, receiving and being.
I say "being", because this is something of true value.....
The true essence of Christmas is the value.....!!!!
It is the value of laughter shared.....
The value of surprise when that special someone pops in to say hello.....
The value of comfort in being cared for.....
The value of friendship.....
The value of family.....
The value of love, loving and being loved....
For there are many who have none of this....
Who have an infinite number of possibilities with no apparent opportunities....
Starving, freezing and some even dieing, alone, with nobody.....
Indeed we all have that certain someone or someone's, who we wish were here to share this wonderful time....

Though in wishing time and pondering upon what could be or could have been indeed, we are stealing that very wish from the people who are here with us now!!!!

So if there is someone to reach out to, then do it now....

As there may not be a next time....
And of course the little ones who enter this wonderful world in succession to the ones who have just moved on, possibly on occasion tagging hands, high five, as they pass each other through the Pearly gates..... The returned soul saying "Enjoy the ride" !Wink! !Wink!....
This is a time of Great value...
I cherish every moment of it with every one person that I can.....
I wish every one person within my reach and beyond to the stars, the happiest of Happy Christmases...
Be Christ's Mass....
Gift yourself....
This is everything....
A sleep time now until I wake to share my gift....

Discovery

Discovering that something is not as advertised is never a nice experience.

There are certain instances where we just accept that it's an advertisement and really pass no remarks....

Take the above image of handwash for example!!

We don't actually believe that this bottle of chemicals is of high purity from the hills of Iceland!?!

Or do we????

Through my own experience, I have found that we do sometimes believe what we are seeing because it is masked as something else.

Mutton dressed as lamb it may seem.....

But the painful truth is, if we turn the bottle around and look beyond the picture, the reality is there in plain view....

In this case it is as a list of ingredients....

So why do we choose sometimes to ignore the truth and believe the picture???

I for one have learned my lesson from a recent trusted group....

Let's take this as a metaphor and apply it to every part of our lives....

Because the real truth is.... We are actually choosing to ignore reality!!!

Look beyond the advertisement....

Look around the sales person....

Look through the promises....

Find the truth....

It's there for all to see!!!

Just have a look!!!!

Nothing
To say one has nothing,
"I only have my dreams",
But THAT nothing is never,
As bad as it seems.
​Every thing in this world,
One day had to start,
At first was a dream,
That came from the heart.
​From nothing comes everything,
Any thing you can see,
Even this moment here and now,
With just you and me.
And Now you may wonder,
Even start to believe,
If you live in your dream,
Will you start to receive?
​Every thing is nothing,
All Infinity,
A beautiful vacuum,
Of possibilities.
​Come build your dream,
Wish from the start,
And I'll bid you sweet nothings,
From the bottom of my heart
