The sign of Christmas is a star



The sign of Christmas is a STAR, a light in darkness. See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within, and accept it as a sign the time of Christ has come.

This quote is from my favourite book, A Course in Miracles.  This is how I want my Christmas to be - a Christmas that lasts all year round!

We all need this STAR, the light in darkness.  And how wonderful, when we are able to see that this light is shining in all of us, inside all of us!  We do not have to go looking for light and peace anywhere - it is in the most genious place on earth - within each and everyone of us.  A place we for a start never would dream of looking.

For the first 50 years of my life - Iwas looking in all the wrong places for it, in other people, in my family, in money and clothing and appearances, in jewellery, in housing and pets, in wine and cigarettes... I have tried it all.  None of this  made me happy, in fact it made me more and more depressed.

I ended up in a really bad state, with cancer and a feeling that I  had nowhere to turn.

Then I remembered God.

Finally.  And I was led to the book A Course in Miracles, and the journey back to Myself started. I am still on that journey.  One important thing has happened.  Now, I know the end is sure.  Now, I am not afraid anymore.  I know I am loved, and I know I am love. And so are everybody else, without exception.

I still forget  every now and then.  I can still be overwhelmed with fear.  The difference is, now I very quickly see what is happening - and I can turn to the right place for help. Within.
Within - to the peace and love that is always there.

How simple are things.

So -The sign of Christmas is a STAR, a light in darkness. See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within, and accept it as a sign the time of Christ has come. 

I wish you a blessed  and peaceful Christmas - a a new year filled with joy and laughter!
