On tv the spirit of Christmas is about buying things, about romance, about some kind of magic. It is not about the Christ within, not about the birth of possibility, not about spiritual connection and holiness.
I'm not about what Christmas has become on tv.
I cherish the vision once given to me and still vibrant in my memory. I saw that our hearts are potential cradles for the birth of the Light of Christ within. When Jesus said we would do greater things, he was challenging us to attune ourselves to the same Presence of God that led his life. He humbly said what he did was the Father within, not puffing himself up.
I can't help but wonder what would happen if everyone gave up tv Christmas and opened to an internal spiritual Christmas that led to attuning to God.
