Christmas Greetings?

*******

Leaving Christmas aside for a bit, I definitely Believe that having been Wished ‘Happy New Year(s)’ Never Really made those years Happy.

Though I Totally believe in the Sincerity of those who had wished me that/those.

With that I can come to Christmas.

[ By the way, I find the wish ‘Merry Christmas’ offensive. Happy Christmas would be More Appropriate. ]

If We take time to Think, We will find that ‘Festivals’ have been created, in All Religions, for the Commoners to Forget their Woes for a day or so.

Both the above images are of the Rio Carnivals.

If what I have heard is True, that the whole of South America is practically owned by about 11 bulti-billionaires, and Brazil is filled with Slums, No wonder they would need this.

Yet, at the same time, where are their brains? Are they all stripping to this extent to show that they don’t have that Grey matter? Why can’t they spend All this Money, Energy, Time and Organisational Capacity to make their country a better place?

And coming back to one of my Favourite points, Brazil being a ‘catholic’ country, What, and HOW MUCH, has the church done to speak out on this?

Are We, supposed to be the Intelligentsia, – We have Computers and the Internet at our fingertips, after all, – Are We too supposed to Rollick around on certain days?

Let us take all the Improvements in the world for Granted.

But Do We have ENOUGH of Freedom, Cessation of Hunger, Homelessness and whatnot?

I Believe, If We Address the Root Causes of evil, the Days and Years Automatically become Happy ones.

As they are for Me!

Let’s put our Thinking Caps on. And ACT.

That’s my Wish for You, my Dear Friends! 🙂

  1. Happy Christmas Swami Yesudas. 🎉 I wish this for all, with the whole of my being. 🙏🏾 Looking at these festival images, I have often wondered about people who are showing the height of happiness when they are dancing and singing at a party or parade. I often wonder if the same merriment they display in public follows them home in private. My neighbors party all the time. It’s always someone’s birthday at their house, but then they argue and fight all other times. Yes they are joyous at the party, but when the party is over, does the joy remain? I could not be joyous or happy in such an environment without the knowledge that I can draw true happiness to me when I stray. But I can’t say for sure that this is not what they are conditioned to see as some form of happiness. Sometimes conditioning can make you believe what you innately know is not true. For all the joy pageants in the world, I wholeheartedly hope that there is true joy in their lives and that this joy in exhibition is not only external. ✨

    1. Thank You very much for Your response, my Dear Belinda.
      What You say about Real Happiness vs Partying is Very True.
      As for conditioning, that is there, but this will NOT be accepted as a Reason when the Day of judgement comes. Jesus’ words, ‘Repent,’ were given to people who were ‘conditioned’ too! We are Required to ‘Uncondition’ ourselves! 🙂
      Love and Regards.
