Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Today, millions of people around the world gather together to celebrate Christmas. This is the time of year where there is a collective agreement for more love and peace as many spiritual paths celebrate a special day.
In the spirit of this time of year, I was recently reminded of the story of the Christmas truce that I wanted to share with you.
On December 25th, 1914, during the height of WWI, British and German troops, who, the day before, were determined to destroy one another, declared a truce.
Not only did they stop the shooting for a day, but they crawled out of their trenches, to gather together in the no man’s land where they shared songs, drinks and stories about their families.
It was short lived as they were back at the business of war the next day.
Nevertheless, these men made an agreement to put their differences aside to come together in the name of peace and harmony for that period of time.
This story shows that we do have the capacity to choose peace in any given moment. If we are able to do it for one day, we can repeat those days and string together a year of peace, a decade of peace, a lifetime of peace.
On this Christmas day during this season of peace, I invite you to call your own truce and stand for peace.
Together as we carry the spirit of peace into our lives and our world, we truly do create the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth.
Wishing you a delightful, peaceful, love-filled Christmas and holiday season,
