May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
Dear Friends,
Some of us are leaving for the holidays, so I wish a Merry Christmas to all who celebrate.

I am going to post a poem that I found on the Deepak Chopra Prayer Board, written by Tim Cannon, I hope he doesn't mind. It cannot be expressed more beautifully:


A child was born
On this very day,
Bringing light and hope to the world
In a gentle way.

This gift from God
Before our eyes,
A child was born
To save you and I.

Such little hands
To heal this Earth,
A heart of innocence
At the wake of birth.

To teach us forgiveness and compassion
These gifts of love,
This child is our future
Hatred shall we rise above.

Every day a child is born
Into our heart
Love takes form.
These children are a reminder
For you and I,
Christmas can be every day
Just look into their eyes.

Love, Inda

I had to add another poem by Tim Cannon, which I borroweed once again from the 'Deepak Chopra Prayer Board'; it is so incredibly beautiful it renders me speechless.

Listen closely
To this story
Of a child written long ago,
Who came from the mountains
To the distant valleys
Bringing a message of peace and hope.
This child sang to all the people
Words were whispered far and near,
Of the power that’s in the heart
Of the wisdom all can share.

“In your heart
And in your mind
Working together
You will find,
All the treasures
And all the gold
Lies in two simple words
Never needed to be told.
Feel the warmth
Which grows inside
And in this feeling
You will cry,
Sounds of freedom
Sounds of laughter
Sounds of children
Forever by your side.”

Some of the people
Wanted the secrets
To all the treasures
All of the gold,
They took this child
And locked him up
Keeping this child
Deep inside.

These people grew in sickness
Age and resentment
Hate and fear,
Never understanding
Never receiving
Forever lonely in despair.

And when the child had faded and died
They had lost their secret
This wealth was gone,
They could not share in
This life treasure
These words in which they seek.

When elders looked
To the other people
And saw them happy
Full of life,
Full of laughter
Full of love
Reflecting ever clearly
So brilliantly bright.

“How could this be
We had the child
We held him within,
He was ours to keep
Ours to have
Never to share
Never to lend.
Only the words
We were never told
To all the riches
And to all the gold,
Died with this child
Never again to be seen
Forever left, untold.”

As their feelings
Turned from anger
Turned from jealousy
Turned towards rage,
A child did step forth
And kissed them lightly
Only then did they know.

The words for which they were seeking
To all the riches, all the treasures
And all the gold,
Laid in their heart
Always there
Never needed to be told.

This feeling, forgiveness
This feeling of love
Came from deep within,
From within their soul,
Is all that is treasured
Is all that is needed
Wealthier than all the gold.

So now you know the story
The words, the feelings
Living within us all.
Live your life
Live it as a child,
Live it in forgiveness
Live it in love.

Listen closely
To this story,
Of a child,
Written long ago.

Thank you for sharing Tim Cannon's second poem. I haven't read anything so beautiful and touching in a long time.
I came to the computer just by chance, and this really puts me into the right spirit for Christmas.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone.
Thank you Teo for Givnology, and thank you Tim Cannon for your beautiful poems.


Wishing you all a very happy holiday season.


I wanted to add dear Margherita's poem as well:


Your name is on the lips of millions
while they gaze into Your baby eyes.
Whether your smile has been shaped
in wood, marble, gold, silver or stone
you touch the heart of every soul.

To celebrate Your sacred birth on Earth
we rebuild the scene of Bethlehem
and we become like children again,
to feel the genuine joy, sweet Jesus,
of that glorious hour of Your arrival.

You had been given a special mission
You were an extraordinary divine gift
for those who shared Your time
and for all the future generations.
An everlasting treasure for the world.

May we remember Your divine Light
and the message you came to share,
may we be able to identify with You,
to become true messengers of love too,
in order to heal every heart on Earth.

Be our guide on the Path of our Life,
be our light when we can’t see our aim,
be our support when we feel too frail,
be our voice when we don’t know what to say!
Kindle the divine spark within our souls!

May we become like children again,
to walk with You in trust and joy,
spreading love all over the world
providing reason to rejoice for all
remembering the truth that we are One.

Merry Christmas to all of you, my dearest friends!

It moves me to tears reading old posts, but they are tears of joy.


Love, peace and hugs to all.


I add my latest haiku:



Peace demands action:

attend to your heart garden

spread love buds freely





I’m open to love,  my heart invites you to dance,  come share my delight
