Let’s All Become Who We Really Are!
As we enter into this holiday season, it seems particularly important for us all to remember the importance of our shared humanity. Over the past few months, we have all seen many varieties of hatred on TV, Facebook, and elsewhere. Let us remember that we are all in this crazy thing called life together! Let us remember all of our brothers and sisters who share this planet with us. Let us end the story of separation and remember today and always that we are all one!
In times like these, I turn to the ever-so-wise Marianne Williamson. I actually read from her book A Year of Miracles: Daily Devotions and Reflections each day before I meditate, and a few days ago I was struck by the following passage. I hope that you appreciate it as much as I do.
On Becoming Who We Really Are
Practice kindness, and you start to become kind. Practice discipline, and you start to become disciplined. Practice forgiveness, and you start to become forgiving. Practice charity, and you start to become charitable. Practice gentleness, and you start to become gentle.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re in the mood to be to be gracious to the bank teller today; do it anyway—and watch how it begins to affect your mood. Just push the button of the self you wish to be, and your synapses that make up that personality begin to form. Your best self already exists in the ethers, just waiting to be downloaded. We become gracious when we decide to be gracious. We have the power to generate as well as react to feelings; to hone our personalities as we travel through life. In the words of George Eliot, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” It is never too late to become who we really are.

I recently discovered the department store John Lewis from the UK, which has the most amazing commercials. To be honest, when I saw my first commercial I had no idea what it was advertising. I simply find them to be works of art with wonderful, loving messages. I hope you enjoy the company’s Christmas commercial for 2015!
Until next time,
