People come together over Christmas in a way that never seems to happen during the rest of the year. It is a time to put away grudges and resentment and find togetherness. Some can manage this, some cannot.
When we live from our heart/intelligence it is much easier than for those people who live from the head/intellect. The intellect is a long established isolationist, while intelligence generates holistic connections . . . and this is what Christmas is supposed to be about – holistic connections! And yet, for many, isolation is almost a product of Christmas.
Let me explain it this way: I have never been more lonely than when I lived in a spiritual community. Here I was having spiritual/mystical experiences, yet I had nobody to share them with. Spirituality was the umbrella of our community, yet it was not the overall practice. Everybody was into their own stuff! Christmas is an umbrella for much of the world, but many lonely people will not be able to find anybody who will actively listen to their story, simply because Christmas is the celebration of another persons story. And sadly, these inner-lonely often take their physical life while others celebrate. Not a good idea for immortal Beings!
We all have choices. We can feel sorry for ourselves, and become more isolated, or we can choose Love for ourselves and be spiritually connected. Love always connects. If you are likely to experience a lonely Christmas, my recommendation is that you consciously choose Self by . . . choosing Love!
