“You are not your thoughts, your emotions, your body, your money, your career or your property.”
(a quote by Aryeh Kaplan from his book “Introduction to Kabbalah, Meditation and Prophecy”)


December brings us the shortest days of the year and the longest periods of darkness.
Yet, it is during this season of darkness that (in many communities) the greatest light is experienced.

In December, many celebrate holidays that focus on light: Light amid darkness.

Hanukkah (the Jewish festival of lights) and Christmas (celebrating the birth of Jesus) are joyous holidays, seasonal markers that remind us that when things seem the darkest there exists Light, Peace and Hope . . . light-filled days and nights that underscore this
enduring truth.

“We cannot hold a torch to light another’s path without brightening our own.” (a quote by Ben Sweetland)

There is always LIGHT. When you choose to see your SELF as one with GOD, you become part of the LIGHT.

When you see GOD in others, you share the Light and It shines more brightly.

Both holidays (Hanukkah and Christmas) focus on faith, miracles, and light. (This is also demonstrated and expressed by the goodwill shown by so many throughout this month.)
December is a time of generosity and hope.

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works.”
Matthew 5:16

Good Works is not limited to the things you do for others. Good Works is a way of living that raises your vibration so that your life choices are admired by others.

Good Works is also the positive attitude that reflects your confidence in knowing who you really are.

Good works is expressed by the way you treat all others as equal, sacred beings . . . as
you acknowledge everyone as divine energy and recognize the GOD within them.

“When you possess light within, you see it externally.”
(a quote by Anaïs Nin)

Live your life in a way that allows your own, internal light to shine. Our 3-d Earthly actions can inspire others to share and invest in their own divine experience.

Make a conscious decision to be a source of light in the world, not just during December but throughout each and every year.

“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”
Maori Proverb
