Everyone remembers Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. In that well-worn but marvelous story, a bitter, miserly, lonely man finally takes inventory of his life (after being encouraged by a series of holiday-obsessed phantoms). Once he sees that focusing only on his interests has left him fearful, angry, and isolated, he decides to become kinder, generous, and mindful of the needs of others. As he lets people into his heart and as he shares the warmth that is generated by the innate, divine spark within him, the quality of his life instantly improves and he finds himself experiencing dramatic joy. This holiday season, let’s reconnect with that powerful lesson and remember that as we see the divine Light in others, It will actually burn more brightly within us; and that is sure to bring us joy!
