Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus

All You Need is Love

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung
Nothing you can say, but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy
Nothing you can make that can’t be made
No one you can save that can’t be saved
Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time
It’s easy
All you need is love, all you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need
All you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need
There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown
There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be
It’s easy
All you need is love, all you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need

(Lennon-McCartney)

The Spirit of Christmas

Every parent understands what Christmas means to their children. It’s a built-in program. It starts from the moment they’re born. It starts with the gift of life.

When we became adults, we became jaded. The true meaning of Christmas got lost in the crass commercialism of the holiday sales season. We turned into the givers of all good things, and we saw underneath Santa’s red suit: he was actually us.

The trick to letting that Spirit enter us is to give without expecting anything in return.

That is what happened when Jesus was born, the day we nominally celebrate as Christmas.

Really?

10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 12 In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the prophets.…(Matthew 7:10-12)

I don’t think Jesus could have been clearer, but we still act as if others are trying to take something away from us, and we hold on for dear life.

Those ‘things’ don’t belong to us: we have been lent them to utilize for a short while. When we let them go and share them with some other people, we are doing what the Universe intended.

It’s the same with love: if we hold onto it, out of fear that somehow we’ll lose it if we share it, the power of love is not allowed to do its work. Like all energy, the distribution is as important as the production. So be a channel of love and share it everywhere.

Conclusion

The Golden Rule is our best standard of measurement in spiritual terms. When we do unto others as we would have done to us, we are being open and generous with our love and our gifts.

So, yes, Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus: YOU!
