A Time of Giving

Christmas is here, a Christian concept, which got me to thinking ‘what do all religions have in common’.

What ‘gives’ with giving once per year as a priority?

Why isn’t that part of our everyday activity & prioritized as such?

Isn’t that part of our very nature, which can be brought out without the shopping ads?

That strikes me as a spiritual question.

We have a choice!

We can draw on the selfish side of our being, or the giving side of our nature, anytime we want to.

We  have a group of Choppers, here on Pender, that decide to do that every week of the year.

I read somewhere that God is ‘Within’ & Tolstoy wrote ‘The Kingdom of God is Within’.

So that Being or State of Being resides right here.

I can choose to reflect it or not.

I’m in Heaven!
