When my children were young I used to tell them the same German bedtime story over and over again during Christmas time. My kids loved this story and could not listen to it often enough. It was a story of a little curious angel who had fallen out of the sky trying to look down on to earth, leaning over too far.
This is a very cute story. The nosy angel lands in the cold snow and cries for help. Luckily St. Nikolaus hears the angel’s cry and rescues it.
Many years later now thinking about the story I wonder whether the angel was leaning over too far attracted by the light of the world or trying to spot the universal light.
Although the media highlight the darkness of our world I believe that there is an enormous amount of light shining brightly to illuminate individual hearts open to receive it.
How come, you might ask, that so much darkness creeps into a world, which was created to be a Land of Light? Perhaps one explanation could be the human ability to create, entertain and even feed a life of illusions. It seems to be easier and less frightening to ignore the truth. However, in the long run an illusion will never bring happiness and peace as it creates darkness and fear.
To live in darkness and fear is a choice. To explore the truth within our hearts and connect with our inner divine light is a choice too.
Christmas is a time of celebrating this divine light within us. We are God’s dream. We are the gifts to the world, to each other. And perhaps as we unwrap gifts and light candles we can unwrap something very new and magical within our souls. And…as we light a candle remember that we ourselves can illuminate our own souls creating together The Land of Light.
