I love the story of Jesus. A story of a man who healed the sick, taught wisdom, and lived an example of a spiritual life. He was not rewarded on earth for his talent, compassion, or hard work, but rather tortured, rejected, and not supported by the very people he served.
Yet in the story, he didnʼt become resentful, blaming, or entitled, but probed inside for deeper meaning and learned to attain and sustain spiritual principles and qualities in the midst of great adversity – the ability to rise above the imbalances, ignorance, and injustice, in order to claim the achievement of his personal enlightenment.
At Christmas, may we all be inspired by this drama and move a little closer toward our personal enlightenment.
