As I was doing my usual Facebook social media posting and reading those posts of interest, I came across one by the Lancaster Metaphysical Chapel that had me thinking.
Here is that post (posted with permission)

"SANTA. Good Morning POWERFUL ONES. Today is going to be AMAZING! Here comes Santa. Though Santa has come to represent, in many instances, the over commercialization of Christmas, that was not always the case. Santa initially represented love and generosity. Remember, Yes Virginia there is a Santa? In many ways, the God within and Santa share the same attributes. Although God does not keep a naughty list. Many, however, may beg to differ. God represents unconditional love and acceptance. We and God are one. We and Santa are one. We are a mighty reflection of God and reflection of all that is good about Santa, loved and generosity. On any given day, we may be the God or Santa that another human being sees or experiences. So, let us never give up the opportunity to be Santa or to be a reflection of God for another. Have a blessed, abundant, joy filled and Santa like day! You are Love and You are an expression of the God within and Santa. Namaste."
When I read that I could not help but smile!
The idea of being love itself and being an expression of God, the Divine Universal Presence moving in, as, with, through me, and all that is..!
Talk about being in AWE!
The recent Black Friday events and the materialism of the “Christmas Machine” give quite a different picture if and when we choose to look at the outward appearance of events. The more empowering stance is to look at things as those master teachers have taught us to do. And as challenging as it can be at times, continue to walk the walk we are being called to walk. Continue to be the light in the world despite what appears to be an overwhelming amount of darkness. Appearances can be misleading.
The metaphysical stance is that evil does not exist – ONLY God exists; therefore what we call evil is merely an illusion. This divine paradox we call life is an amazing maze of possibilities and it is easy for us to fall into the rabbit hole and believe one dream over another, believe one illusion over another, believing that I am ME and that you are YOU and that we are separate . . . when the Universal Truth is that there is Only One showing up in, as, throughout the many.
So many of us adults do not believe in Santa; but what if Santa were not the jolly red suited fat guy and is actually more like: S.A.N.T.A. – Spirit Actively Navigating Throughout All
How would your individual life experience change if you lived, moved, and had your beingness in that state of mind… you are Santa, you are spirit moving throughout this thing called life and will continue to do so into eternity? How would your life change if you were more like the Bodhisattva, the avatar that we have come to know as Santa Claus, or Father Christmas, or Saint Nicholas?
How would your life experience change if each word you offered was a gift to another? If you took the time to see the light in another’s eyes, hear their heart in their laughter, feel their joy in a handshake or hug, and know that the Divine in you can see and honor the Divine in them?
Can we agree to open that present this holiday season?
Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, . . . Let’s make it part of our goal, mission, purpose to spread the gift of Love this year. One person at a time, one interaction at a time, one thought at a time!
Do you BELIEVE?
