Here we are in the last month of this year approaching 2009--if you are reading this in 2008--and some other New Year if you are reading this in the "future" that will be the "present" by the time you get there.
This Christmas and gift giving holiday season you are offered a gentle reminder to spend your energy wisely. Respect yourself and your money. This means living well within--or below--your means--so you do not place unnecessary burdens upon yourself or create debt!
If you find yourself feeling lonely or stressed, wanting to give gifts you cannot afford, or receive gifts that are not coming your way, remind yourself, "Now is enough!" When you experience any sense of lack, loss, fear, or limitation, remind yourself, "Now is enough!"
There is no lack, loss, fear, or limitation when you know that now is enough, that you are enough here in this present moment, that there is nothing that can be added unto you to make you more.
As the angels say: The only thing you have to share with anyone is your own state of being!
The peace of your being is a wonderful gift to share with others. Many people want to uplift the world, yet live in such anxiety this is what they end up sharing. We can uplift the world only to the degree that we live expansive uplifted lives.
This wisdom of living a happy life is supported by recent scientific studies that tell us that happiness is contagious! Happiness leads to less stress and improved health at every level!
