Wind In the Willows by John Cali

That title is from an old Christmas song of the same name. Though I am no longer Christian, I love the song’s lyrics. They convey a positive, uplifting message of love and joy.

The song’s story is about Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, and their travels all over the world bringing a message of peace and joy to all who would listen. The story is clearly fictional, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is the message.

Here’s the heart of the message:

“With the wind in the willows and the birds in the sky, there’s a bright sun to warm us wherever we lie.

“We have bread and fishes and a jug of red wine to share on our journey with all of mankind.”

Here are these three people travelling the world over, doing what they love. They trusted they would be taken care of, and never go without food or a place to sleep.

How many of us today have the courage to do what we love, and simply trust we’ll be taken care of?

Here’s Spirit.


If everyone in your world did only what they loved, you would create instant peace on earth.

But most humans have bought into the mass consciousness that says you cannot do whatever you please.

Our question is: Why not?

When you are doing what feels good to you, you are fully aligned with your higher selves.

When you are fully aligned with your higher selves you are radiating love to the world around you — and to the entire Universe.

You are — at that moment — making a huge positive change in your world. You are lifting the consciousness of all humankind. That is how powerful you, one human standing alone, are.

It doesn’t get any better than that.

You are creating this powerful positive vibration, and you are drawing to yourselves all you need to prosper and thrive in your physical lives.

Doing what you love is the safest, surest, highest path you can follow.

For then you are guaranteed the universe will take care of your every need and desire.

It’s that simple.

    One day I said to my friend, let’s go put the Christ in our mass! We laughed as we drove for we felt a truth had been spoken – like a cosmic joke spoke outloud! For me that is my more recent truth about Christmas and what it means is allowing my Christ consciousness to take over my mass consciousness. (I would define Christ consciousness as a belief system that does not have fear or negativity in it.) This does seem to bring endless gifts into my being and world which help me heal and grow. Some examples of this recently have been forgiving myself and others, accepting my weaknesses and loving them instead of putting myself down and feeling unworthy. Letting go of grief around things I do not have control of. Letting myself feel peace instead of anxiety. It goes on, but you get the idea. Merry Christmas John, I have appreciated the voice of Spirit through you for years.

      Thanks so much, Patricia, for your wise, insightful comments. “Your” Christ is the one I believe in, not the one many religious organizations say is the “real” one.

      Thank you for your kind words. You have a Merry Christmas too!
