ChristMas

When You break the word Christmas up, You have Christ- Son of God, and Mas- Celebration. So in essence the celebration of Christ. Many may say Christmas has lost its true meaning, I say “It is what it is”, another holiday to spend time with Family, and Friends. I agree it has become very commercialized, and materialistic, but what these days is not?

What seems weird to Me is, why do We require a excuse to visit with Family and Friends? It seems as though most holidays are used as a excuse, when You can choose to use any moment, not just designated traditional dates. I use to in the past get really worked up over how materialistic Christmas has become, and I boycotted buying and receiving gifts altogether. Now I just allow it to be what ever it is, just another time of year to visit with Family and Friends.

One could get all worked up, and stressed over how much money to spend on gifts for others, but why? It is all Your choice on how much to spend, or not spend. You are in control of what You do. Yeah there are statistics, and opinions on how much money people will spend on average for gifts. I say “Who cares?!”. Money is a transfer of energy, when You truly think about it. If You have good intent on what You use money for, then that is what it will do. The other is also true as well. It all comes back to You choosing what to do, and not to do. Either way, if You allow things to bother You, then it is ‘You’ that has the issue, not any thing out there.

This is not a write up on whether Christ really existed, or not. And whether Christmas has lost its true meaning. Like I said “It is what it is!”, and You make it what it is. The one and only thing I get from the new testament is “We are all capable of every thing Jesus did!”, and that is the main focus of the bible, I believe! So enjoy every moment You have while alive, and do not sweat the small stuff, which I feel is every thing that is!

Enjoy!

*Note – There are many cultures and religions that celebrate some thing similar to Christmas. The main theme of them all is to ‘Celebrate’, and I find that rings true for all other holidays in various cultures. There is no right and wrong to which one You celebrate, the main thing is You Live, Love, and Appreciate all that is in Life!

Purpose…

You all may be wondering what inspired Me start this website, and I Am asking My Self that same question? I guess it all starts from whence I was quite young. I can remember growing up wondering why are things “the way they are!”, I had and still have this inner voice saying “question every thing!”.

I had a awesome up bringing! Living in a simple community named Daly Grove(in Millwoods, Edmonton, Alberta CANADA). My Family treated Us very well, and I can say that with integrity. My Parents provided My Brother, Sister and I with every thing We could ever desire, You may say We were a average suburban Family, what You would call a typical “middle class Family”, but to Me it was a lot, especially when I look upon it now. My Parents did the best they knew at the time, and I Love them for it, and continue to Love them 🙂

When I think about it now, I realize I Am a better Human Being as a result of My Family! No thing was dis-functional about Us, and I believe that because I have no stories to tell like molestations, beatings,  impoverish conditions and so forth(things that society will tell You that are not normal). But what is normal? Normal I believe in My definition is what majority of the masses are doing at that specific point in time. So if You really think about that definition, it means any thing goes if the majority are dong it! That I believe is pretty dis-functional! And this is where I get My inspiration from, My purpose so to speak. I Am for once in My life doing what I have always thought and felt, and that is “What I desire!”, not doing what the masses are doing.

I can remember getting My first job, it was exciting at first and then after a brief while I realized “this sucks!!!”. Then I moved on to what You would call a better job, and shortly there after I thought to My Self again “this SUCKS too!!!”. And so the cycle began, I always did what others thought and said I should do. They said “You have to get a job”, “does not matter if You like it”, “if it pays good You will learn to enjoy it!”…After a while I got My Self into what You call debt, most people go through this stage and most continuee to repeat it over and over again. I lost hope for a bit, thinking to My Self “What is this all for, what does it matter!” Eventually I whipped into shape so to speak, got another “good paying job I did not enjoy” paid off My debt and thought I felt good about My Self, but I did not. Some thing was missing, “Purpose”. I began looking into various so called “Conspiracy Theories” and started to get quite angry inside, wondering “?what the hell is this Worlds problem!”. I soon came to realize it was not what was out there that was the problem, it was in Me that was the problem. So instead of always searching and finding all the problems, I began to just look with in for all the solutions. I love this quote “Look with in, and You will find with out!” that is very profound! It means when You go with in Your Self and change how You feel about every thing, the out side World(Your experience) changes to what You desire!

I admit I have read quite a large stack of books(still continue to read), and watch various videos on all topics as well. But that was and still is just stepping stones to aid Me and ingrain My “purpose” on the stage of Life. Which brings Me to My original question “why Am I doing this website?”. “There are millions of other sites just like Yours, Matt!”, “What makes Your site so special?”, and You are right there are millions of like websites, but what makes it so special is “I Am doing what I Love doing, and that is providing un-biased information to any One who desires to better their experience in this Universe!”. You are thinking “Un-biased?” How? I have on My site stuff that is beside there so called “competitors” stuff! I believe as people We can choose what is right for Us, and not require any One to filter out any thing. I Am doing some thing most believe is impossible, because We have been raised to think in order to get a head in Life, You have to be competitive! Says who? I choose to question Our so called “Beliefs”, another cool quote I have read is “Beliefs are Perception Filters!” Therefore what You believe limits or enhances Your experiences! So You can say what You were taught throughout Your entire Life structures how You perceive things. But You are not a victim of this, You have the choice to change Your beliefs at any moment! And this My Friend is profound. This is what I Love about Life the most “The Freedom of Choice!”. Once You understand that statement, and fully believe it, Your experience here makes more sense! No thing is expected from You at all, You are what, You are! And that is as simple as it gets.

For a year now lots has happened, I was laid off, chose to not ever work for any One else again, released My fear of authority and not having money, become more accepting of others, forgave every One I thought wronged Me, forgave My Self for wronging others, I Am fully responsible for every action I do! I have done a complete 180 degree turn around from who I was! And I thank every One in My Life for being My teachers!

Enjoy what I continue to provide for You on this website, for I enjoy sharing it with You!
