When it comes right down to it, thoughts and even emotions matter little. How you feel deep inside about things is what really matters. Unfortunately, we can easily tie ourselves up in knots with our thoughts and agitated emotions. Deeper inside things are more clear, fine, and simple. Thoughts and emotions are like choppy waves on the surface of the ocean. The finer feelings are in the depth, unaffected by the waves.
Getting caught up in whether or not there was a virgin birth or contradictory beliefs of different denominations can be like choppy waves on the ocean surface. Feeling the deeper meaning of Christmas is what matters. I believe we can all agree that what Christ represents is wonderful, beautiful, exquisite, and the essence of Christmas. And that is something we can all celebrate. At least during this time of year, let’s all keep our attention on that. The nature of our feelings feed our soul. We just posted a SlideShare slideshow called “Christmas is a Feeling” that I think everyone will enjoy. My wife, Tanja, did the pictures and they are really wonderful.
Enjoy and have a very merry Christmas!
Very beautiful slideshow and blog. It all takes me to the more subtle feelings of Christmas. So very lovely.
My relationship with Christmas, religion, and family has changed over the years. Thanks for this reminder to simply be with the innocent, pure beauty that is the spirit of Christmas. How sweet it is!
The nature of our feelings feed our soul….. beautiful….
The concept that thoughts and emotions matter little is a lifesaver. It is so true that “Deeper inside things are more clear, fine, and simple.” I have saved myself from many ulcers and heart attacks since I learned this years ago from Michael Mamas. Merry Christmas to all.
I very much enjoy the feeling of Christmas. Thank you for sharing this and the slideshow.
See beyond the surface… Lovely blog! Thank you.
I agree, getting caught up IS like choppy waves on the surface.
I really enjoyed this slideshow. Merry Christmas everyone!
What a wonderful gift for the Christmas! Thank you so much, Brahmarshi and Tanja. Happy holidays for all of you and your family! 😊
This is a very true and beautiful reminder. I had never heard it in quite this way. But it makes sense and feels right. Thank you
Beautiful, Merry Christmas!
So true. The idea that people can get into arguments about which religion is “the one” beats me. It seems so obvious that divinity is universal and underlies all religions. Besides the purity of the knowledge has largely been lost anyhow. So all they are defending are echoes of truth at best and completely distorted perspectives of truth at worst.
Beautiful, I love Christmas time
I ♥ Christmas!
