“Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love. ”–Hamilton Wright Mabie
We’ve all heard the encouragement to “make hay while the sun is shining.”
If there was a particular time of the year to best gather our nuts on goodness of spirit and hope in humanity, we’re smack dab in the middle of it.
In case you and I have been a bit too busy in the the ritualistic wrapping up of the old calendar while designing the new, let’s be sure to note the wash of congeniality as the season of most human-spirit connectedness flows around us…and ideally through us and as us.
Though there’s no legitimate reason that, as Elvis sang, every day couldn’t be just like these holidays, our culture continues to declare “it’s the most wonderful time of the year.”
So, milk it!
Where can we give the gift of our presence (presents?) in a smile, good tiding, quick favor or little extra (whatever that extra might be)?
Better yet, where can we strive to see the oneness of humanity in the face of all the hypnotic and seductive “evidence” of separation that clouds most of the rest of the year?
If this is the time to shore up our faith in mankind, let’s jump on this train even though it’s already left the station.
Got seasonal milk?
“[This] is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.” –Washington Irving
