“To Give…is my only TRUE LOVE…. !!!
That’s what Christmas is ALL about!”
This Year,I will CELEBRATE Christmas in a VERY Special way,with those who have less than my self…
It is time for Christmas ,wh ich means GIVING from your Heart…
It is Christmas again. AlthoughI do not celebrate a materialistic Christmas,I have some LOVELY memories from my childhood, which have brought me the mission from my heart as a grown up. I do not belong to any sect or religion, I just feel that the materialistic way to celebrate the Love of LIGHT has not been maintained in the GIFT that I feel Christmas could be all about. I treasure my childhood memories from old fashioned celebrations with family gatherings, love and the great joy of GIVING…the receiving was of course exiting and fun,but not as exciting as “GIVING”….
I can remember that as the child I was (and still am), I could barely keep the secret of what I had MADE to the lucky receiver of my gift. Every one of us created home made gifts and we did all we could to conceal what we had made until Christmas Eve.
What pleased me the most was to celebrate Christmas in my Grandmother`s home. Since WorldWar 2 she had been manager for a home for children with special needs, children from families who did not always love them enough to bring them home for the holidays. Very often we were a lot of people for Christmas Dinner, 30,40 – yes even as many as 50 ! For me these children were my siblings, they had few material possesions, but what mattered to me most was their big hearts. I remember how proud they were when it was their turn to hand out the secrets they had been hiding for such a long time…their very own handmade gifts.
Some years ago people all over the world felt great pride in their hearts when giving home made presents. Even as a young adult I believed this was the norm, until the «plastic age» came upon us, and the pressure to buy gifts became the rule in society. The pressure to buy has increased year by year, people are lining up in front of discount stores to buy more and more things. I noticed the disapprovement among friends and relatives when my family`s home made presents were opened, in contrast to mass produced plastic things.
Whatever happened to the joy of GIVING ?
The world of commerce had taken over, the joy of profits.
While at the same time people begun to give presents from obligation, and the Christmas message of love simply dissolved…
When I noticed this, I went to my relatives and told them that my desire to give was so big that I would not allow myself to fall into this materialistic trap… And that I wanted to find the souls who have less…and I wanted to live the way I was brought up… I wanted to live out the joy of giving…Therefore I renounced any form of materialistic Christmas celebration forever. My relatives accepted this and we celebrated our last common «Three-Christmas» 20 years ago.
And I went out and travelled the world to create a space for giving… And now, after many years of charity, I am in the Andes, where I have started a help centre for single young mothers with children. Girls and young mothers who have been sexually abused. I help them
start a new life, their own DREAM LIFE, with therapy, education and new homes. A fresh start for healing souls.
After all the beautiful souls I have met on my way of giving my hand to all in need – and for all the transformation that I have witnessed in their LIVES, and in their beauty of change which goes far beyond the Materialistic world of and HOW the Celebrating of Christmas has become.
I will CELEBRATE this Christmas in a VERY Special way… Every day in December I wish to give something special to the poorest children here where I live… They want to celebrate Christmas , many of them for the first time in their life… In December , my new started Charity will celebrate Christmas at 8 schools, with more than 200 children- high up in the mountains… Further down in the valley there will be a public celebration for an entire town Called Malacatos, on December 22 nd, in the park there. We will make a documentary video of all my December Events, where the joy will shine in children´s faces, children who always have dreamed of celebrating Christmas… You are welcome to support me in my December project.
