From all of us at LightStream, We wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah!

 

May the peaceful divinity of the season make us aware of that divinity within all of us and carry it through the year.  Let us remember that Christ did not have to come here, but chose to do so to help us understand love and oneness.  We, as part of the LightStream Network have also chosen to come and work together.  We are humbled and inspired to carry on with the message of love brought to us by such teachers as Christ, Buddha and the Dalai Lama.  With peace, love and hope!!

May your Holiday Season be filled with Blessings and Joy!!

May you have a blessed Season!!  Here are a couple of Christmas offerings:

THE CANDLE OF THE SOUL

By Clara Bell Thurston

Our very hearts are tipped with flame,
and shine like candles in His name!

A candle's but a simple thing.
It starts with just a bit of string!
Yet dipped and dipped with patient hand,
It gathers wax upon the strand,
Until, complete and snowy white,
It fills the room with lovely light.

Life seems so like that bit of string,
Each deed we do a simple thing.
Yet, day by day if on life's strand,
We work with patient heart and hand,
It gathers joy, makes dark days bright,
And gives at last a lovely light!


ANGELS

By Elizabeth Searle Lamb

Watch for Angels now
As the Christmas Season gathers its momentum,
Angels are near us at this time!
Listen for a voice of special sweetness,
A most endearing sound.
Be aware of the touch of an Angel wing, feathery soft.
Angels come close but do not always let us see their shapes.
They remain nearly invisible,
But once in a while a shadow touches.
And once in a while a note of singing comes.
Once in a while . . . the faintest touch!
Angels are a special part of Christmas.
Watch for them!

Notes & Thoughts By W. G. Black Ph.D. - Founder of Gakati'yi

The Healing of the Heart of Ebeneezer Scrooge

Joy for the world,
Scrooge's heart was healed!
Let the laws of greed be repealed,
And the ten octaves of love now be revealed!*

On Friday the 15th of December, 2000, I was honored to be present in Herberger Studio in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Each Christmas KTAR Radio does a live rendition of Dickens' inimitable Christmas Carol. This year two persons of national prominence assisted by playing roles. The one you will recognize for sure is Hugh Downs. He served as the voice for the 3rd Ghost, Christmas Yet to Come. You may also recognize Cindy McCain, wife of Senator John McCain, who read the part of Peg. A third well known you might recognize is Tom Chambers of the Phoenix Suns. There was much humor and pleasure in the audience as this 'massively tall' human being played the role of the 2nd Ghost, Christmas Present. As he looked "down" upon Scrooge, it did seem like a voice from Heaven was delivering him a message! Mayor Skip Rimsza took time off from civic responsibilities to deliver the huge turkey to the Cratchits in the role of the Delivery Boy.  The parts of the production where Scrooge was transformed were very meaningful to me, and I hope to pass that gift to you through these Thoughts and Notes.

I found myself looking upon this enactment of Dickens' work through the eyes of my "therapist self" which has helped others for about 40 years now.  I noted that Ebeneezer Scrooge had developed a "hardened heart" through holding unhealed trauma and living his daily business dominated life upon that "brokenness." It is possible that Scrooge's "Bah, Humbug" is one of the most famous defense mechanisms in history. By being "all defense" and all fear and greed, he had ended up "spiritually and emotionally broke," but he was materially well endowed. We are reminded of the rich young ruler who asked Jesus what he must do to enter the kingdom. As Jesus saw how attached he was to his wealth, he gave the young ruler a formula for detachment, and the young ruler went away very sad, "for he was a man of great wealth." Scrooge's transformation was activated and brought about through "dreamwork," (Freud, Jung, Perls and many others in our day) and "messages from Spirit," presented as "Ghosts," in Dickens' language. The dreamwork provided clarity of self, true self awareness, an attitude of love and self forgiveness and forgiveness of others.  In terms of our modern day "Course in Miracles," Scrooge "overcame the belief in separation," and he redecided (redecision therapy) and chose to see himself as One with Others, One with All Creation. His beliefs in lack, separateness, loss, lovelessness, and the impossibility of healing his broken heart, are transformed before our very eyes. He learned that we are "not our traumas." We have traumas, but they are not our essence. We can view our wounds as teachers rather than enemies. They block us until healed.  They can be healed.  All of these things Scrooge encountered in his "visits with the Ghosts." What an inspirational moment in human history! The "holy instant," the "epiphany," the Phoenix "Sun of Righteousness" arising with healing in its wings, inspired us all once again. Some, perhaps, for the first time.  Jesus told Nicodemus, another wealthy man, "You must be born again." The "Ghosts" told Scrooge that he could be born again, i.e., his broken heart could be healed through new decisions, 100% intention and new actions out of a healed, generous, loving heart.  In another writing we can explore the marvelous processes and details of how Scrooge was healed.  For now, let us express gratitude that Dickens was "suffering from writer's block" on a novel, and his miracle was to overcome it by writing A Christmas Carol in three weeks.  Many people experience more pain and experience it more intensely around Christmastime.  There is often much perplexity about why this strange paradox is as it is.  Sondra Ray's wonderful axiom is helpful here.  She writes: "Love brings up everything that is unlike itself."
Indeed! December is the month when Americans as a culture are "pounded with more messages about love" than any other time of year. Is it any wonder in our dualistic consciousness that more materialism and negativity also comes right along with it? Let it be OK that that is so, and let us see it as a great opportunity for growth. Let us change our minds and heal our hearts as did Mr. Scrooge. No matter how much it hurts, no matter how intimidated or fearful we are by the potential experiences involved in healing ourselves, proceed anyway. Share anyway.  Give anyway.  Speak to one who is not speaking to you. Work with this affirmation: "A Spark of the Divine Creator of All Universes resides within me. THAT is who I am. I am Whole, Complete, Free, Abundant, Pressed Down, Flowing Over.  I teach only love, for that is what I AM. I AM the best Christmas gift anyone could ever receive."

As a Nation we have just had a long, grueling lesson about the value of "just one vote." The same applies to "just one healed heart." The healing of the "just one broken heart of Ebeneezer Scrooge" has helped and inspired millions, perhaps billions of people by now. Yours is just as important and valuable as his. Remember Jesus and the single sparrow.  Your gift this Christmas can be your own healed heart, or, the healed heart of one you care so much about, usually the healings come in pairs. "No one is healed alone." Scrooge's healing spread everywhere!
So, I am grateful that Thom Kelley was once an engineer at KTAR, that he knew about this annual event and that he saw to it that I was a guest in the audience as these celebrities generously shared their talents and their love by giving the audience of KTAR this wonderful Christmas gift. Hugh Downs helped to lift us all Up! In German- American language, "Yah! Herberger!"

Soldier's Christmas

TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, HE LIVED ALL ALONE, IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF PLASTER AND STONE.

I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE, AND TO SEE JUST WHO IN THIS HOME DID LIVE.

I LOOKED ALL ABOUT, A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE, NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS, NOT EVEN A TREE.

NO STOCKING BY MANTLE, JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND, ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES OF FAR DISTANT LANDS.

WITH MEDALS AND BADGES, AWARDS OF ALL KINDS, A SOBER THOUGHT CAME THROUGH MY MIND.

FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT, IT WAS DARK AND DREARY, I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER, ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY.

THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING, SILENT, ALONE, CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME.

THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE, THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER, NOT HOW I PICTURED A UNITED STATES SOLDIER.

WAS THIS THE HERO OF WHOM I'D JUST READ?  CURLED UP ON A PONCHO, THE FLOOR FOR A BED?

I REALIZED THE FAMILIES THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT, OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT.

SOON ROUND THE WORLD, THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY, AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY.

THEY ALL ENJOYED FREEDOM EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR, BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS, LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE.

I COULDN'T HELP WONDER HOW MANY LAY ALONE, ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME.

THE VERY THOUGHT BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE, I DROPPED TO MY KNEES AND STARTED TO CRY.


THE SOLDIER AWAKENED AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE, "SANTA DON'T CRY, THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE;

I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, I DON'T ASK FOR MORE, MY LIFE IS MY GOD MY COUNTRY, MY CORPS

THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP, I COULDN'T CONTROL IT, I CONTINUED TO WEEP.

I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS, SO SILENT AND STILL AND WE BOTH SHIVERED FROM THE COLD NIGHT'S CHILL.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE ON THAT COLD, DARK NIGHT, THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR SO WILLING TO FIGHT.

THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER, WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE, WHISPERED, "CARRY ON SANTA, IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY, ALL IS SECURE."

 ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH, AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT. "MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT."

This poem was written by a Marine stationed in Okinawa, Japan.

Christmas will be coming soon and some credit is due to our U.S. service men and women for our being able to celebrate these festivities.
