Whilst some might say that the month of December represents the entering of the darker months, and I for one must admit that in the past this would have been my persuasion too, however, today December, especially December 2020 represents the turning on lights. A turning on of light on all fronts.
Oh, how my heart warmed and sang when I saw the first set of Christmas lights, adorning the inside and outside of my next-door neighbour’s house. Flashing, twinkling, starry sparkles lit the windows, door panels, and roof hedges. Each set of lights creating a story.
The stories of the lights awakened my attention to view myself even as I am calling you to do today, to turn on the light of your own being. By doing this we will light each other’s world, and together flood the whole world with light.
There is no star that shines its brightest than the Northern Star. It is the star of hope. There is hope in this season we call Christmas – so long forgotten – but I re-member that it also represents hope in the form of an innocent baby lain in a manger. The hope that this babe would one day grow up to be the Saviour for the world; from the tyranny of darkness, hopelessness, defeat, and death – to bring to them into the glorious liberty of light and love and life.
December 2020 is also the ending of the ravages of a pandemic that shook the core of our world. And some might wish to stop me here to ask if I am not listening to the news, and they would be right because I am not led by the news, I am led by the Now. I do truth not so many facts. And in the Now moment, the light of a new star is rising, its energy is lighting up December in my world.
My awareness of light rising out of my heart is the new star on the planet. And we are each capable of giving it recourse to brighten and sparkle each other’s world with hope and peace and joy.
Joy to the world thy light has come
As we each allow our lights to shine, we light our souls with love, and from our souls, a fire is lit. Imagine a whole street of awakened individuals aware of this flame of love shining brightly within. Allow your imagination to grow, to grow beyond one street until it sees all the streets in your neighborhood, this would be called a community of light. Then, if we would allow our awareness to continue, we would see the blazing flames of love lighting up and adjoining other communities, until it becomes a City of light.
As so by the continual practice of our own inner awareness of the light in our hearts we grow to become cities of light, and ultimately a nation, nations of light and love.
Here one could say all such seem like a dream, although I would beg to disagree, only because, to me, it sounds very much like an awakening to seeing a new possibility, an innovative way at envisioning ourselves, one another, and our world. Envision a big me and a big you, so much bigger than everything of the past, we become open to this NOW.
And in the present nowness, there is a release of infinite possibilities. I can see countries adjoining countries of magnificent lights and fervor, Sons of God, harmonious splendor until the whole world is fully illumined, sparkling, dazzling, loving, hopeful at least so that there is kindness everywhere. I see this!
In my awareness, I see light for December 2020. I see that this light ushers in a brighter new day for many. I write many because there are the foolish and fear-filled dreamers, who shrink, restrict, and remain in the illusion of their inner darkened world etched with impossibilities, seeing, and speaking and heeding stories of want, lack, sickness, despair, and death.
December 2020, humanity’s greatest season. A season of hope is being realized, perhaps not on a basic human understanding of hope, but nonetheless, there is a grand momentum taking place on our planet right now.
“Arise from the shadows you who mourn as though there is reason to celebrate, and let those who are fearful remain as though there is no reason to hope. And so, let your light so shine within yourself and light your space for a brighter day and a brighter world.” Chapter 1, pg1 – The Book of Light, D. A. Palmer
