Wishing You and Yours A Magical Holiday Season!
Posted December 13, 2009on:
During this holiday season, I wish you all moments that create exquisite memories. I pray that we all move toward living our lives at higher levels of consciousness, and we walk down our individual paths with the virtues to guide us. My students will tell you that the virtue I value the most is honesty…without it in your life everything else is askew. What gifts do you want to give your family and friends?…Of course we give material things and we do it with care, but the real gift you give to society is yourself. Live a life with internal power and your existence becomes a gift. Move toward what is noble in your life and you will feel life’s energy…be attracted to what uplifts and dignifies. The greatest gifts human beings give one another are art and love. What is created from the soul whether it be visual art or music emerges from what is graciously the truth of a human being. Great artists understand that what they offer is a gift to humanity…and they are grateful for the power that they share with the world. Remember that all life is sacred and that beauty lives in all forms. Dr. David Hawkins writes, ” What of a true teacher? In the first place, a universal hallmark is that the true teacher never controls anyone’s life in any way-instead, they merely explain how to advance consciousness.” We learn the lessons of life and move toward self discovery and growth…we evolve. So during this holiday season, and as you move forward in your lives embrace love, joy, peace and enlightenment. Forgive yourself and others as we make human mistakes, learn from those mistakes. Remember to be compassionate to yourself and others. Live a life in truth…find your power in integrity and increase your capacity for compassion…this is my holiday wish and wish for the new year for all of you and myself. I would like to take this moment to tell all my friends and family who have truly loved me through the years…this love has been such a gift to me. My most beautiful blessings have been my children Victoria and Anthony, and the honor that has been bestowed upon me to teach other people’s children… I am truly grateful. I will leave you with the words of Emily Dickinson as we end 2009…see you in 2010…with love and smiles,

“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
I would like to send a special holiday wish to our soldiers and their families. Wishing you all love and protection.
