GIFTS OF THE SEASON, TREASURES FOR THE YEAR: HOME and FAMILY, LOVE and PEACE, JOY and STORIES!
I believe that:
HOME is the place where your heart can rest.
FAMILY are the people who make you feel you're home. LOVE is a gift you should give to yourself and be open to receive, so that you can share it with others; you are unconditionally perfect in Love, unconditionally. The Universe gives no judgment.
PEACE is a gift of love. With enough love, there is peace of mind, spirit, home, family, nation, world...
JOY is needs no jokes, no comedians, no explanations. It is the recognition that each breath is a blessing and each exhalation is a prayer, shared without limits of mind and distance. It is the sound of children laughing, and the silence of sunsets. JOY should be who you are and what we peacefully and unconditionally give to others.
STORIES are the human heritage, and the first miracle..."In the beginning was the WORD" (John 1:1). When we share our stories, the miracle continues. It is not a matter of religions; it is a matter of HOME, FAMILY, LOVE, PEACE, AND JOY.
I am grateful to all of you for always making me feel at home in my storytelling journeys and programs.
MAY YOU ALL AND ALWAYS ENJOY THE GIFTS OF THE SEASON.
