Christmas: The Season For Transcendence

Dear Family, Friends and Spiritual Kin:

I'm writing to remind you that this is the season of Love, Peace and Transcendence. What is transcendence? Here's some quotes on it by Robert Fritz from his book, "The Path of Least Resistance: Learning to Become the Creative Force in Your Own Life:

  • Transcendence is the power to be born anew, to make a fresh start, to turn over a new leaf, to begin with a clean slate, to enter into a state of grace, to have a second chance.

  • Transcendence makes no reference to the past, whether your past has been overflowing with victories or filled with defeats. When you enter a state of transcendence, you are able to create a new life, unburdened by both the victories and the defeats of the past.

  • Transcendence is more than just the accurate realization that the past is over. It is also a realignment of all dimensions of yourself with the very source of your life.

When you reestablish your relationship to your natural goodness, you give a new life to what is highest in you.

Remember the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and how he jumps around and dances and shouts on Christmas morning. I encourage you to do the same.

This has been a year of
NEW BEGINNINGS, and now it's time to celebrate.

I wish you -- and all those you love -- the joyful experience of transcendence this Christmas and Holiday Season.
