The authority of the holidays

The holidays are coming at us full force. Are you ready?

Readiness comes with a willingness to participate. And just what are we participating in?

From 21st Century Science and Health, we read, “Let us pay attention and participate in spirituality.”

Can the holidays express spirituality? Why not? Spirituality is the reality.

The holidays are celebrations. Human beings seem to like to celebrate. It’s a reminder of something great and wonderful, whether we celebrate a freedom gained, a birth, or a hero.

The problems come when the celebration is given more authority than the spiritual idea behind the cause for celebration.

We can assert the true authority of our celebrations by remembering and acting on the freedom, the newness, and the power of good.

The scheduling, the food, the preparations, the cleanup don’t have authority and don’t need to stress us.

Celebrate the authority of spirituality. Look for and be, beauty, kindness, happiness, and joy.
