Wish List For Christmahanakwanzayule

For Christmahanakwanzayule, I want:

  • to be freed of fear;
  • to be freed of limitation;
  • to be freed of doubt;
  • to be freed of denial;
  • to be freed of loneliness;
  • to be freed of anger;
  • to be freed of pain;
  • to be freed of suffering;

in other words, not to be bound by my ego anymore. And:

  • I want to take the love that comes my way, even if it comes from people I don’t relate to very well, whose values and choices I cannot fathom and don’t agree with.

I don’t think Santa can deliver these. They are gifts only I can give myself.

Failing that, I would like a massage and a new digital camera.

    For Christmas, I want to stop wanting.

    I think I’m almost there.

    Not “failing that,” but ALONG with that.

    Go for it all, baby!! 😉

    Yeah, well, for Christmas I want to be a perfect mother and a great writer…I don’t think those fit in a stocking.

    Hey, I like your aspiration. I’d settle for the massage too.
    Glad to be home!

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Those are all admirable things to have on a wish list. I find myself not really wanting “things” very much (could be because I have so many of them!).

    If we could just drink that cup of kindness, that would be just fine.

    I haven’t been commenting as much as usual, for no particular reason, but I read all your posts.

    Hope the little one is filling a huge place in your heart/life.
