Merry Christmas, for those who follow that path. For those who celebrate Yule, I hope that yours was blessed. And for those who celebrate Hannukah or Kwanza, best wishes for a blessed one. And for those who celebrate any combination of them, may they all be blessed for you!
Say "Merry Christmas" to most people here in the US, and it's not uncommon for such a wish to be followed by "And a happy New Year" since the two holidays are only days apart. And even those of us who celebrate Samhain as the changing of our year, we have to note the change on January 1st when we make note of the date using the common system in use today.
This is also the last episode of "The Secrets In Plain Sight" which will be new entirely within 2010. The next one will be new mostly in 2011. And so, this appears to be a good time to discuss what is going to happen to "The Secrets In Plain Sight" as well as "Uriel's Gifts" beginning with the new year. And no, I am not taking up time on this podcast to merely make an announcement. I'm using the opportunity to give you an introduction, especially where this particular podcast is concerned.
We are going to explore. I find that there is a lot that needs to be explored, and you're invited to join me. Of all that has made an impression on me spiritually, one thing that keeps making an impression on me is how overwhelming the infiniteness of The Divine must be. And some people have a problem with that - to the point that they try to place limits on The Divine. As if The Divine could be limited, they try to limit The Divine to the boundaries of their own understanding. Then again, we would indeed not be able to deal with being exposed to the full infiniteness of The Divine. But what I seek to do is to be exposed to just a little bit more than my current "zone of comfort" until I'm comfortable with that, and then I'll seek to expand a bit more.
And that has some wonderful implications that go far beyond the boundaries of denomination and sect which people try to impose. You'll see!
