The Holiday Season, for many of us, holds deep religious meaning. Much of that meaning is centered around the need for hope in our personal lives, and in our world. During this time we may participate in religious observances in which we seek enlightenment. The following words are from Anthony DeMello’s book, “One-Minute Wisdom,” they speak about how enlightenment comes to us:

Novice: “Is there anything I can do to make myself enlightened ?”  Abbot:  “As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning.” Novice:   “Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?” Abbot:   “To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise.” (Anthony DeMello, One Minute Wisdom)

In this Holiday Season our world represents many faith traditions. In the spirit of love, light and peace that our various traditions represent let us wait together in the hope that our inner eyes will be open as the sun begins to rise.
