Santa is about to come into our lives, not by way of sleigh and reindeer but by way of the hearts. It is not just the customary, the religious or the conventional who find themselves surprisingly able to summon the spirit of Christmas at a time like this. It seems that we are all about to become a fountain of generosity. Christmas is about sharing, anything, everything or something!

It is natural to look into the future and feel mystified. The veil of time is hard to see through. Even famous astrologers find it hard to be sure of what lies ahead. It is equally natural to feel uncertain about the past. When we look behind us, we see something shadowy and mystifying, which need to become clear about it.

It is that time, of the year when do look back, we look ahead to gain a fresh perspective. Perspectives can be clear. Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. Everyday can be Christmas; there can be one religion in this world…region of humanity… religion of Karma. May our attitude, not our aptitude determine our altitude.

Merry Christmas everyone. May you feel happiness, freedom and peacefulness in all your endeavours in the New Year and years beyond!
