christmas spirit - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
When we commercialise our love, especially with expensive gifts, we render it cheap. Love cannot be bought nor sold. And so, to find the Christmas spirit, to find pure love, we must give what is within, because to be happy with what is free is freedom.
If the Christmas spirit is shifting polluting and pointless gifts, yet empty homes are still locked to the homeless, what, pray tell, do we mean by "Christ"? Because last I heard, he wasn't the god of greed, selfishness and monetary riches.
Generosity is folding outwards, blossoming as flower petals do; ego and entitlement are a folding inward, a sort of self-death. Counter-intuitively perhaps, we become more alive and unique the more we help others with our talents. Christmas spirit is about folding outwards in that way; whereas commercialism is about folding inward. It is commercialism that is killing the Christmas spirit, the endless "gifts" with their "price-tags" obscuring the real priceless gifts we give to one another.
The Christmas spirit cannot be bought and sold, so isn't it about time we stopped these pollution causing antics?
We inherited the Earth without a box or tag. We are born naked and seeking the protection of love. We grow to become psychologically mature enough to make the sacrifices needed to give our children the best chance possible on the healthiest planet possible. The Christmas spirit is the embodiment of this altruistic love, free of monetary concerns, yet it should be the spirit of every day, just a normal love that does what real grown-ups should do.
