Christians and non-Christians participate in some of the most popular Christmas traditions, many of which have no origins in Christianity.
Christmas is the time to get together and remind ourselves how lucky we are to have friends and family who love us. We may not see our friends and family very often, but at Christmas, they will always be there, enjoying a delicious meal and exchanging presents.
Whether it’s from family, friends or Santa, everyone loves receiving presents. It’s part of the Christmas tradition and it is one of the main reasons why I believe everyone loves Christmas.
to give up one’s very self – to think only of others – how to bring the greatest happiness to others – that is the true meaning of Christmas.”
Christmas has tremendously lost its meaning over the years. It has become all about presents and receiving.
Christmas is to offer prayers and sing praises to God for all the gifts we have been given but also to act on the teachings of Jesus to bring hope to people and places left in darkness.
Christmas (or the Feast of the Nativity) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed primarily on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.
Christmas is celebrated to remember the birth of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe is the Son of God. The name ‘Christmas‘ comes from the Mass of Christ (or Jesus).
The state of being conscious; awareness of one’s own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings, etc. … full activity of the mind and senses, as in waking life.
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. “Pain may be defined as the body’s awareness of unpleasant changes or activities that call attention to particular regions of the body.
What are the three levels of awareness in consciousness?………
The three levels of awareness in human consciousness which are divided by Freud: the conscious, preconscious, and unconscious.
Humans emit an energetic vibration. Lower vibrations carry negative and heavy emotions, and higher vibrations carry positive and lighter emotions.
The human energetic field expands several feet around your body. This energy is passed onto everyone who steps into your energetic field. when you hang out with low vibrating people you are more likely to feel down; but when you hang out with high vibrating people you are more likely to feel good.
Examples of High Vibrations: love, compassion, joy, peace, happiness, forgiveness, acceptance, friendly, kind, generosity, good morals, productive, active, humorous, honesty, authenticity, truthful, passion, purpose, meaning, present, empathy, open, lively, etc.
Protecting your energy is crucial toyour mental and physical health because it is the ultimate determinant of your overall happiness. We give a lot of ourselves away every day, at work, to our friends, our loved ones. We need to recognize that our needs are just as important as everyone else’s. Protect your energy.
When someone gets very angry with you, what you can do to protect your own energy in such situations is to stay calm and remain detached. Then you will not be energetically affected by their anger.
Choose a High Vibration: Set daily intentions to stay positive, meditate on peace, visualize yourself and your home surrounded by light, choose to feel and think about good things, and do activities that feel good to you naturally.
God’s intentions for creation were not only to reveal God’s character, but also to: • provide for all that God has made, including natural systems and non-human life needs • provide for human physical needs, including food, water, shelter, clothing and energy
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. God saw that the light was beautiful. He separated the light from the darkness, calling the light “day,” and the darkness “night.” The twilight and the dawn were day one. Then God said, “Let there be a canopy between bodies of water, separating bodies of water from bodies of water!” So God made a canopy that separated the water beneath the canopy from the water above it.
By the seventh day God had completed the work he had been doing, so on the seventh day he stopped working on everything that he had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God stopped working on everything that he had been creating. Genesis 2:1-3 Continued in Genesis 2:4-3:24
God created mankind in his own image; in his own image God created them; he created them male and female. God blessed the humans by saying to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it! Be masters over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, and every living thing that crawls on the earth!”
To Have More Passion for God: Receive and Remember God’s Grace (John 12:1-2)
Passion is intense enthusiasm for something, a keen interest in something. So when we say that we have passion for God, we’re stating that we have an intense enthusiasm for God, a keen interest in Him.
When we say we are passionate for God, we are speaking in terms of having desire, hunger, thirst, a craving for Him.—That we have zeal and drive, fervency and excitement, and of course, love.
