Its that time of the year again – Santa’s time. But there is something more fundamental – its the symbolic celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. The birth of Christ symbolizes many things: however, today being pregnant with tons of festivities, I will discuss only the three most important: listening to that still inner voice in you, beginning anew and forging ahead despite all challenges.
Listening To That Still Voice In You!
Joseph, the earthly spouse of Mary wanted to silently put aside Mary when he found out that she was with child that he knew nothing about! Joseph was an honorable right thinking man, no doubt. But then, something quite strange happened: an Angel appeared to him in a dream and warned him otherwise!
While I wish you a Merry Christmas, I wish to remind you that when its time for the great decisions of life, you’ll find out that only the still small voice within you is correct! Your mother would most certainly be wrong; so would be your father, spouse and everyone else. Only your guts (or intuition or hunch) would prove most reliable. And this can come in a variety of ways. For Joseph, it was a dream. For you, it might be a simple persistent thought. Listen for it, then to it – only then can you claim the greatness that is yours!
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

While 2013 may not have been a great year for many of us, its the perfect time to start anew! As we wish ourselves Merry Christmas, its very important that we all look at the One whose birthday we celebrate today.
Despite humanity’s sinful state, God did not give up on his creation – he had to send his Son to redeem to be born with the grand aim of redeeming humanity. With that singular action, humanity was given a chance to be born again – or born anew. The interesting thing is that being born anew is something that anyone can achieve once he/she is tired of the old life of mediocrity and underachievement.
As I wish you Merry Christmas, it is also my sincere desire that you, my reader, begins anew. It is immaterial what glories were achieved in 2013. 2014 is a perfect time to step up.
What do you think?
Forging Ahead Despite All Challenges
Merry Christmas once again! It is important that before I sign off, I remind you that you’ll need to make a resolve to forge ahead despite all challenges!
When Mary could not find a suitable place to deliver Jesus, she simply gave birth in a manger! Now, what does that tell us? If something has to be done, it simply has to be done even if it means going through the most unpleasant experiences of life.
The thing is that, after such an experience, what usually comes out exceeds all expectations! Always remember that!
In the spirit of Christmas, Share!
Merry Christmas once again!
