Early Christmas dreams...

And so this is Christmas
And what have we done?
Another year over
And you've just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
Your near and your dear ones
Your old and your young
And so Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fear
And so this is Christmas
The weak and the strong
The rich and the poor ones
Have waited so long
And so Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fear
So Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fear
War is over if you want it... ... ...


~~War is over - John Lennon


Christmas is around the corner folks...one of my favorite seasons of the year. I love how Sydney lights up with chrissie deco and joy...the spirit of it all is just too magical. People looking happier, children so excited, Santas storming department stores :), Xmas goodies on the shelves, carols down the streets, trees lit-up in shop windows...yes trees wrapped in lights and tinsel shining so bright. But what is the meaning of Christmas? It should not be just celebrating the birth of Jesus..I honestly don't know why people give gifts to each other during Christams even though I myself do it :) I think what's more important is to see the bigger picture...it's not what gifts you want to give/receive, it's not what parties you want to attend and get drunk, it's not about YOU...it's about what you have done to make someone else's life a little bit brighter...it's about being a better person...it's about helping the needy...it's about loving as much as possible..it's about spreading Christ's message..."Love thy neighbour as thyself". So in the dawn of another brandnew year, think about how you can be better in your thoughts, words and deeds...how you can make a difference by actually doing something to spread that Love around...be it through your friends, family or strangers.

I have a Christmas dream...in the past I had this belief that people I know will love me back no matter what...'cos I'm just a child of God with nothing but Love to give...and I thought they would think the same way...but my hopes were shattered...there are so many people who don't know how to Love...only because they don't Love themselves enough to care for another. No wonder this world still suffers from war, poverty and racism, all because of Self-Righteousness and the Ego. I know that we can't go out there and change the world overnight, but you can do something to make someone feel a tad bit of that Love. So my Christmas dream is that you find that same Love...if someone you care for don't give back the Love you think you deserve, try and give your Love elsewhere...never be discouraged by one person...there is always someone else out there who will need and recognise your Love. And don't ever change the Love in you, even towards the ones who don't know how to Love you back. Be that lit-up Christmas tree among the not so bright ones. Life is too short and it's no point burning in anger and hatred. The root behind the sad pictures above is just one simple emotion ruling the mind - hatred. So this Christmas make it a point to feel Love and give out Love. For Love is all we need. That is my Christmas Dream. Don't forget to tell me your Christmas dreams this year...and have a Love-ly season folks!

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

powerful message from john lennon...if only it were real. a very early merry xmas greeting to u keshi :-

musings (m000nie) said...

be it diwali or christmas... what is more important is to 'love'... reminds me of this line 'love me for a reason n let the reason b love'...

in this world n time people today have forgotten how to love... theres this materialistic trend happening which is really very scary... money money n money...

people who say they r fighting for religion r lying... coz the underlying need there too is power n money...

n the most important need today is to educate the youth... teach them to beware of 'religious brainwashing'... coz if they dont then this will only read to more hatred n more suffering all over the world...

n yeah we cant change nything overnight... but we can always start with ourselves...

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

but i like Deepavali more than Xmas ...

but when u start working , neither of them make a difference ... do they ????

sittingnut said...

as usual a brilliant and meaningful post.

Love is all we need...it's about loving as much as possible...many people who don't know how to Love ... only because they don't Love themselves enough to care for another

what more can any one add to that?

So this Christmas make it a point to feel Love and give out Love

i will try to follow that advice this season, that would be my christmas dream.

sittingnut said...

mr/ms against_plagiarism:

And hope that this comes true for everyone.

Great topic Keshi!

in the past I had this belief that people I know will love me back no matter what...'cos I'm just a child of God with nothing but Love to give...and I thought they would think the same way...but my hopes were shattered...there are so many people who don't know how to Love...only because they don't Love themselves enough to care for another.

I don't know why, but something about this comment saddened me... you are right in that there are so many people in this world who just don't know how to love another, or even themselves... but those are the people to whom we should show love all the more, because it is sometimes up to us to give them a example of what loving someone truly means.

That, after all, was Christ's true message - he did not keep the company of those who knew love and showed love. Instead, he put himself in the world among beggars, lepers, prostitutes, thieves - the very people who needed to see his example of love the most.

When we do show love for others and they are unable to return or accept it, you have to believe that they are not letting you down or disappointing you - they are, in fact, letting themselves down and no one else. For them to let us down in that situation means that we are not giving them a true example of love, but we are only showing them what "love with conditions" means.

With that said, moving on... LOL... I noticed that the topic of "personal blogs" came up within the comments. That would be an interestng topic for you to challenge your readers to think about, because there are pros and cons on both sides. Myself, I think it is the personal choice of each blogger to decide how much they wish to write and on what topics. Myself - my blog is extremely personal and I make no apologies to anyone for it. But I can say this, though -- by exposing such personal thing in my life, I have, in essence, demonstrated to others what it means to love. By writing such intimate details, I have connected with people around the world the world because those details have touched them on a most personal level. And in one very specific case, by writing an extremely personal blog I saved someone's life who was considering ending it because they felt alone, that no one would understand what they were feeling or experiencing - how many "non-personal" blogs can say that?

If that is not what it means to love, then I don't know what does...

ahoyyy Justin ;-)

**but those are the people to whom we should show love all the more,

true true true...thats why I said we should not change the Love in us, even towards the person who cant Love us back..someday they will learn to Love if only we teach them how to :)

**he did not keep the company of those who knew love and showed love. Instead, he put himself in the world among beggars, lepers, prostitutes, thieves

so true Justin...he lived among the doomed to spread that Love..I dunno what it is but whenever I see Christ's face I have tears in my eyes...He had the biggest heart yet he suffered the most...


**If that is not what it means to love, then I don't know what does...

spot on Justin! By reading some of ur posts related to ur real-life experiences, I have learnt alot of things...through ur pain u have made it a point to spread Love to others so that they can live...it's the highest service one can do to another...u r another divine being Justin - luv ya heaps!
