As we move towards the darker days of winter, we first stop along the way to celebrate the holiday season.
The season is celebrated in a variety of traditions and cultures but is universal in messages of peace, joy, and generosity. This time offers the opportunity to dust off our "better angels," look beyond ourselves, and celebrate what unites us all.
Whether your Festival of Lights is found in a menorah, Christmas lights, or in the eyes of a child, make the time now to share your own inner light.
Enjoy all the moments, from the stillness of snowflakes to the chaos of Christmas morning.
Practice peace in all the little ways--a smile for someone during a shopping rush, a kind word for a customer service worker, a contribution of time or money for a meaningful cause, a moment to simply breathe.
Bask in joy, family, friends, goodwill, and memories.
Wishing you all a joyous, memorable holiday season and a New Year filled with Peace and Hope.
