Happy New Year 2012!

I've decided to start video blogging (vlogging) and this is my first! This was made in the wee hours of the morning of December 31 after we returned from a party the evening of Dec. 30. Happy, prosperous New Year, everybody! (((((((((Love))))))))))

Ahhh, the holidays! A time of peace, joy and harmony...right? Well, that's the ideal, but for most of us, the reality has not historically been completely consistent with that. But it can be. The key to shifting your experience to be what you want it to be--I know you're going to be shocked to hear me say this (wink)--is to choose to be in Easy World!

Easy World is the world that Love creates. Difficult World is the world that fear creates. So if you want to experience the qualities you can only experience in Easy World, like peace, joy and harmony, instead of the turmoil, pain and disharmony of Difficult World, you need to let Love be in charge instead of fear. This will come into play in every aspect of the holidays, but especially in the interpersonal-relationship department since family and social interaction are primary features of most of our holiday experiences.

I firmly believe that the person operating from the greatest conscious awareness is the one most responsible in any interaction. (Of course, it's impossible to truly know, but for the purposes of this conversation, let's make the assumption that in your family, that's YOU.) By virtue of your spiritual growth, you are the designated "adult" in your interactions, no matter where you are in the birth order or pecking order. Even if it's with your big brother or 80-year-old mother, since you are the one who knows how to choose Easy World, it's up to you to lead the way back there. You do that through being there yourself and by behaving as Love does.

You've seen those WWJD bracelets that some Christians wear to help them with their choices, haven't you? Well, you're going to be wearing an invisible "WWLD" ("What would Love do?") bracelet. That will be the question to ask yourSelf all throughout this holiday season. What would Love do?

So what would Love do? Love accepts (fear rejects). Love allows (fear resists). Love embraces (fear pushes away). Love includes (fear excludes). Love lets go (fear hangs on). Love forgives (fear holds a grudge). Love responds (fear reacts). Love elevates (fear depresses). Love enlightens (fear obscures the light). Love heals (fear harms). Remember these as you decide how you're going to respond to whatever arises during your holiday interactions, be it with your family, with strangers in your travels, or whomever or whatever else you encounter.

What a blessing you are and what a gift you give your loved ones and, indeed, all of humanity--and yourself most of all--when you make being in the world that Love creates your mission this holiday season! The rewards of it are the joyful heart, peaceful mind, and warm feeling of well-being that only being at Home--your true Home--provides. So strap on your invisible bracelet and go forth and radiate Love in Easy World!
