Christmas and New Year’s greetings are fortunately not been erased by modern day`s busy weekdays, but traditions and customs are maintained by many.
Unfortunately, I have never even been a tradition bound person perhaps because of frequent changes in lives and habitats in the world, but still “conservative” enough to understand the joy of gathering together on anything shared in this Christmas season.
Christmas Greetings have many different shades – from the bland facade of greetings to the more personal and thoughtful letters, but all they have certainly some positive message from the sender’s hand. Year 2010 has been both an exciting and sometimes very profound year for many people around the world.
I am thinking of both financial and disaster-stricken areas, where many have been left homeless or killed during the violent forces of nature. The world needs community and solidarity more than ever before.
It can then be discussed how far the community and solidarity proves to be, since the world even at this point seems to be changing as some call it a new world order. Yes, it looks like it goes in that direction, but a true community and solidarity with others should be the same whether we are in the rise or adversity.
I have never felt “saved” in life’s many facets, but the ideals and goals I’ve always had, whether it comes to my own life or someone else with and adversity. One slogan I often use is “One can do much, but many in a community working for the same goal can make miracles.”
This is really my greatest desire now, where we stand at the threshold to begin a new year with many challenges and tasks ahead – maybe as far as it is about human survival.
Right now I’m sitting in the middle of the hurricane’s eye, where many pieces must be bonded together in the work on events for artists, musicians, singers, etc. as leader of the organization “Artists in Action – Culture unites Cultures for Humanity”. These moves are also business in the true sense, but I see the last word “Humanity” as the goal and value of the efforts – otherwise it could just as easily have been pure business without concern for humanity in the world.
We all have ambitions, aspirations and dreams, but it does not matter how they are broken or what means we use to meet our needs. Unfortunately there are no ethical rules – only the legal regulations as each country has confirmed and renewed in accordance with the developments. The very fact, that we do not have the same ethical standards even within a small area often leads to ethics burst of atoms to the detriment of others who may try to approach ethics superlative terms, often related to the faith we use as a platform of our own lives inner harmony and in balance with the soul and the body truthful ego.
Let the focus fall on both yourself and others to the extent you are able to do it. Do not howl from the wolf you do not understand in your inner self, but listen to all the good advices you get for free from your soul and body and you will find the platform on which you now find yourself best.
One consolation for the very young – With age changes both ambitions, perceptions of ourselves and others to a desire for big cars, houses and a guard dog …..
I wish everyone a good Christmas period and a happy new year – I step off on my own and others’ behalf leaving to the south shortly celebrating Christmas and New Year together with the French dragoons and their wonderful wives or partners.
