Once again we approach the hectic end of yet another year, with all the hustle and bustle of wellness wishing and good cheer.
‘Tis the season that brings out the very best in us and perhaps the worst. It is a time when the gentle touch of Angels is most needed and apparent.
I sense many of you smiling with knowing eyes and joyous hearts at these words. Others, many others, are showing looks of doubt or amused complicity on your faces. You are the same ones who would also have us believe Santa Claus does not exist. This I can perhaps understand, but Angels?
How sad it must be to go through life without knowing Angels! Especially when the proof of their existence is everywhere. A persons eyes and heart easily identifies them as one who either knows Angels or doesn’t.
Some of us seem calmer and less afraid, stronger of character, more generous, kind and caring. Such persons make the most forgiving of friends. Olympic class listeners, they are fascinated by every thought and word! No matter how dark the night nor impossible the task, they glow with inner light and seem certain that things really will be OK! These are the people we love and cherish knowing; those whom we admire above all others.
Still others among us appear consumed by fear and uncertainty. They think everything and everyone is out to get them; even their relatives and spouses are suspect. They seem lost and alone in a world fraught with evil and suffering. For them, good guys always finish last; winners are the ones who carry the biggest sticks and know how to use them. Trust is something fools do and they deserve just what they get.
Two classes of people who appear so different, yet in truth, I do believe we are all of us very much the same, deep inside. If so, what causes such seeming variance? Doctors of the mind and of human behavior point to all kinds of factors affecting our growth and development; some tell us we are the product of the environment from whence we came.
To this I say well and good, but really, there is another factor that is apparent to me: there are those of us who know Angels and those who don’t.
If you know Angels, you always know just what to say, just what to do and just how to behave. After all, each of us has at least one Angel of our very own. And this, our personal Angel, always knows what’s best. Since Angels love us completely and without reservation, we can always feel their joy when we do the right thing or make the right choices, just as we feel their anguish when we do wrong.
Some people call this angelic force within each of us our “conscience”. “Let your conscience be your guide!” Again, I say well and good, but don’t stop there!
Angels can work miracles in this world, but only through us. We can be miracle makers, but accepting and sharing the gifts of Angels. Angels are the bearers of Light, Live and Love. So if you ever read or hear anyone speaking of Angels being evil or bad, pay no attention to them; such persons know nothing of Angels whatsoever.
Angels are with us always, aware of our every thought, act and deed. So long as we shun and abhor evil, they stand ready to guard us from it; so long as we embrace righteousness, they joyously bath us in Light and Love.
How wasted is the life of those who endlessly labor in the pursuit of some illusive pot of gold at the rainbow’s end. How very sad and astonishing this is when the greatest treasure imaginable is already absolutely within their grasp!
‘Tis the season when we celebrate the coming of Angels and Avatars into the world. A time when all God’s children join together in the ritualistic expression of the ancient words carved in stone at the core of every faith and creed, whether they be so-called Pagan or Christian, Buddhist, Islamic, Moslem, Jew or what-have-you . . .
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
There is fundamental truth in these words. Just as it is also true that Angels are portals through which all of these blessing may flow. In the darkest hour they are with us, as they are in the brightest of dawns. Though they cannot save us from our own follies; Angels stand ready to show us The Way, if only we wish it to be so.
We need never feel lost nor alone, for help is always at hand; protection from harm, close beside us. However, believing is not enough; one must know. Knowing is everything!
It is also written that Angels have been given charge of us all, to keep us in all our ways. Harken to this knowledge and the Angels will sing. Though darkness and despair may yet come your way, there will always be an ending to the pain and strife, and a new dawn of golden light and love. Through all trials and tribulations there will be hope in your heart and it shall sustain you.
The greatest gift of Angels is helping us learn to savor all of the many varied experiences that make up our lives. Some of them seem heavy with despair, while others are light with joyous laugher; still other are wrapped in meaning and the dawn of understanding. To Angels and those who know them, these lessons are the jewels that crown us with glory. All things become known for the good that is in them, as we learn to see with the eyes of a new born babe, lying swaddled in a manger on a cold winter’s morn.
The destination is the journey. And the journey is forever; everlasting and without end. Hark the Herald Angels Sing; Glory to the New Born Kings and Queens! Joy to the World! Peace and Goodwill to All!
Friends and Angels, One and All, Be Of Good Cheer!
