The True Spirit of Christmas Is Love

This week we’re featuring an article by my dear friend and brother, Ted Murray. Ted’s an accomplished writer and spiritual teacher. He’s also a great tennis coach.

In Ted’s message, he asks a timely question: “What does the Christmas spirit mean to you?”

Ted Murray

Of course, not everyone celebrates Christmas, as it may not be a part of your culture or upbringing. However, the essence of Christmas as a way of life is universal, and it would be wonderful if it wasn’t limited to one season of the year or to one particular religion.Read more

One of our readers asked us about this issue:
I understand that the rule in the animal world is: eat or be eaten. But I can’t understand why a cat “plays” for fun with a mouse before he kills the mouse. That seems so (unnecessarily) cruel.

We’ve written about animals a few times in the past. This post is a bit different from those earlier ones.

Learning to forgive is much more useful than merely picking up a stone and throwing it at the object of one’s anger, the more so when the provocation is extreme. For it is under the greatest adversity that there exists the greatest potential for doing good, both for oneself and others. ~ Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

the future is now

Presence is when you’re no longer waiting for the next moment, believing that the next moment will be more fulfilling than this one. ~ Eckhart Tolle

Recently, someone asked us:
“Is it always possible to be in the present moment?”

Our answer:
“You are always in the present moment. Even when you are thinking about the past or the future, you are doing it in the present moment. Now is all you have.”

But, unfortunately, with many of us, even when our bodies are in the present moment, our minds are everywhere else except in the present moment.Read more
