The real Christmas story is the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. There are times in history where Masters are born to change the consciousness of the world. One such Master was Jesus Christ. There have also been other Masters in history who are born to change the consciousness of the world through their wisdom, compassion and love. ButDecember 25 is significant as the celebration of a birth that brought the expression of love to the world.

Our celebrations over Christmas mean we join together to extend our circle of love to family, friends and even strangers. The love may be shown through appreciation by joining in food and drink, offering gifts or just simple acts of kindness. It is also a time to reflect on how fortunate we are and where possible to be conscious of those less fortunate than us.

This Christmas, give from the heart, speak from the heart, act from the heart.

The gift of love. The gift of peace. The gift of happiness. May all these be yours at Christmas.

From my heart to yours,

Dr Issam Kadamani
