Christmas Cheer

Christmas CheerWith families and friends gathering all over the world, to celebrate Christmas, it can be one of the loneliest days of the year for those who find themselves alone.

But rather than wallowing in that loneliness, you should set yourself a goal, and be determined, not to let the situation occur again this time next year. Make causes in the coming months to change the circumstances.

In one of his writings, renowned microbiologist René Dubos, stated. “History teaches that man without effort is sure to deteriorate; man cannot progress without effort, and man cannot be happy without effort.” This is indisputable.

You may be experiencing various hardships now, but because you continue to make efforts in the midst of those challenges, no matter how painful they are, you will definitely become happy. Effort and happiness are indivisible.

    Loneliness is kind of an illusion, if you really think about it. It relies on the concept of self, and a false division between the inner “self” and outer “other” to exist. If we meditate and contemplate breaking down that division, then the basis of our loneliness ceases to exist.

    So many of our fears and woes are illusions, brought about by a lack of right-thinking. Taking time to view situations or challenges from all perspectives allows us to see how things really are, rather than how we believe them to be from our own simplistic point of view. Namaste ~ Anupadin
