The Christmas Present


No, not the kind in a box or gift bag.
The be here now kind.

The being present with the person right in front of you.
The being present with all the memories, feelings and emotions that the Holidays bring to mind for you.
The being present with what you're engaged in now:  The wrapping, the cookie tasting, the decorating, the planning, the music, the smells, the lights, this very minute.

The Honor of your Presence is requested in the present.

Slow down.
Pay attention.

Give yourself the gift of connecting: To your experience, your relationships, your own sense of who you most truly, deeply are.

Your presence is a light in the world.
