World Healing Day  history:

At noon Greenwich time, December 31, 1986, men, women, and children around the world gather to participate in the most comprehensive prayer activity in the history– a planetary affirmation of peace, and love, forgiveness and understanding involving millions of people in a simultaneous global mind link. The purpose: to reverse the polarity of the negative force field in the race of mind, achieve a critical mass of spiritual consciousness, and usher in a new era of Peace on Earth. It was called World Healing Day, the World Instant of Cooperation, World Peace Day– a moment of Oneness to dissolve the sense of separation and return human kind to Godkind. Whatever the term or label, it was the New Beginning in restoring this world to sanity.  The majority of individuals and organizations participating were operating under the umbrella of the Planetary Commission, a worldwide non-denominational, non-political movement functioning as an extension of The Quartus Foundation. It was a grass roots cooperative effort to unite people in a common bond of love and bringing our planet back into balance.  The first formal announcement of the Commission was made on January 1, 1984, designating December 31, 1986 as World healing Day. Noon Greenwich time was selected as the time for the healing meditation as it would encompass all time zones during that 24-hour period.

Word quickly spread, and when that moment in time arrived on December 31, 1986, the mind-link totaled more than 500-million people representing all religious faiths on seven continents, in more than seventy countries, and in every state in the U.S. Over 500 spiritual and peace-related organizations around the world participated.

We saw the results in the years that followed. In a report from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Walter Stuetzle, the Institute’s director and a former West German Undersecretary of Defense, said that there was “remarkable progress toward a potentially more peaceful world… There was a clean break in the pattern of a constant increase in the number of major conflicts with which the world had grown accustomed.” Now the Commission is expanding and gathering strength each year as greater awareness of the Event spreads around the world.

AFFIRMATION

I honor and value the diversity in our community

The Twelve days of Christmas

            The Twelve Days of Christmas, contrary to much popular belief, are not the twelve days before Christmas, but are the twelve days from Christmas to the beginning of Epiphany, on January 6th. This holiday celebrates the visitation of the Magi and is often a time of gift giving

            By the 16th century, some European and Scandinavian cultures had combined the Twelve Days of Christmas with local Goddess festivals celebrating the changing of the year.  These were usually associated with rituals releasing the impurities of the year and the bringing in the light for the start of the New Year.

          After watching our CCL Choir sing Twelve days of Christmas lead by Kathy (Kat) Silas and superbly sung and hilariously acted out by the choir members – I decided I needed more information on this unusual and baffling Christmas carol. What in the world do leaping lords; French hens, swimming swans and especially the partridge that won’t come out of the pear tree have to do with Christmas and the beginning of Epiphany? Immediately after wondering it – a copy of the enclosed Twelve Days of Christmas was passed onto me.

          Of course I checked it out with Snopes and there is some debate about the historical and religious significance of this song. Some feel it is a modern day version – others that it was part of the original meaning in 1695. Whatever the truth, I found it interesting and enlightening.

          “From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly.  Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics.  It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.”

Twelve Days of Christmas

The partridge in a pear tree

The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate on December 25, the first day of Christmas.  In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge that feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings, recalling the expression of Christ’s sadness over the fate of Jerusalem:  “Jerusalem! Jerusalem!  How often would I have sheltered you under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but you would not have it so . . . .”

Two turtledoves

were the Old and New Testaments.

Three French hens

stood for faith, hope and love.

The four calling birds

were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.

The five golden rings

recalled the Torah or Law,

the first five books of the Old Testament. 

The six geese a-laying

stood for the six days of creation.

Seven swans a-swimming

represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit: 

Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy. 

The eight maids a-milking

were the eight beatitudes. 

Nine ladies dancing

were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit: 

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.

The ten lords a-leaping

were the Ten Commandments.

The eleven pipers piping

stood for the eleven faithful disciples.

The twelve drummers drumming

symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles’ Creed.

And now you know some of the history of a Christmas Carol…so pass it on if you wish.

December 24, 2009

All are welcome to Sunday Celebration at the Center for Creative Living, UCM Charter #801, at 1460 Koll Circle, Suite “C” – services in back. Need directions? Call (408)392-9090 or visit www.doti.info. Healing Chairs (come give or receive a hands-on-healing) starts at 9:30am, Celebration is from 10:00 to 11:30am. Dress is casual and Kids are welcome.

          Join us by wearing an African necklace, tribal gown, Kinta cloth, etc. to this service to honor our African-American family and friends.

Sunday January 3rd Reverends Donna Zehner and Lynn Rogers will conduct the service “Prophecy and Predictions”

KWANZAA!

          Kwanzaa is a weeklong celebration held in the United States honoring African heritage and culture, marked by participants lighting a kinara (candle holder). On Sunday, December 27th, join Ronnie Grigsby and Kevin Nickelson in the ritual of lighting the candles and describing their various attributes.

          Kwanzaa is based in part on traditional African harvest festivals but particularly emphasizes the role of the family and community in African-American culture.  Each day is dedicated to a particular principle (unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith), and on each day one of the candles on a seven-branched candelabrum is lighted.  The celebration also includes the giving of gifts and a karamu, or African feast.

          It is observed from December 26 to January 1 each year, primarily in the United States. Kwanzaa is considered one of the primary holidays within the U.S. Christmas and holiday season.  Kwanzaa consists of seven days of celebration, featuring activities such as candle lighting and pouring of libations, and culminating in a feast and gift giving.  It was created by Dr. Maulana Karenga and was first celebrated from December 26, 1966, to January 1, 1967.

AFFIRMATION

During this Holiday Season I enjoy the Mother/Father God

in all manifestations

          In our northern hemisphere, December is a time when everything is very dark.  The celebration of Yule (winter Solstice) often falls on or around December 21st.  It is the time when the days begin to get a little longer and light comes back to northern places.  Like many celebrations in December, Yule is a time to celebrate the return of the light to the world.

          My favorite Yuletide Song is Deck the Halls (original English title:  “Deck the Hall”). The “fa-la-la” refrains were probably originally played on the harp.  The tune is Welsh dating back to the sixteenth century, and belongs to a winter carol. In the old time – carols were dances – thus the “follow me in merry measure” lyric.

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Tis the season to be jolly,

Fa la la la la, la la la la. 

Don we now our gay apparel,

Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

Troll the ancient Yule tide carol,

Fa la la, la la la, la la la. 

See the blazing Yule before us,

Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

Strike the harp and join the chorus.

Fa la la, la la la, la la la. 

Follow me in merry measure,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

While I tell of Yule tide treasure,

Fa la la la la, la la la la. 

Fast away the old year passes,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,

Fa la la la la, la la la la. 

Sing we joyous, all together,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Heedless of the wind and weather,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

 

Seasonal Inspiration

By Joyce Ann Pearce

            Winter is time for reflection. As the sun recedes, the days become shorter and the nights become longer. For the most part the trees are bare and there is a chill in the air. It’s time to bundle up, as coats replace sweaters in the evenings.

As the day ends and lights disappear, it is also time to light the fire and candles, eat hot soup or drink hot chocolate. Find your comfy chair and your special book to settle in and read while your favorite animal sits at your feet or snuggles in your lap. Maybe even your honey joins you. Atmosphere is all around and you are cozy and happy.

It’s also a time to re-group. Look back over the past year. Notice your accomplishments and congratulate yourself on a job well done. And those things that didn’t happen – well, decide if they go on next year’s goals, or, if – maybe they are no longer important to you. You’ve changed your mind, and will take the time for reflection and see if you want to create something new and different next year.

This winter you’ll de-stress, and give yourself more rest and sleep, and time for you. You’ll be better because of it and you’ll be better for others.

Once you’ve had your hibernation time, you look back at how you will give this year, to your community, your family, and your dear, dear friends.  How can you give them more of you, your time and attention, because in the BIG picture it is about giving your presence rather than giving presents! How can you make a difference for them and in what ways can you give to larger causes. All your time and effort adds up. Take time this winter to reflect on this.

PS from Reverend Clark:

When I arrived at the office and sat at my desk, I looked out at the patio and felt its loving energy. For me everything melted away and I was peaceful once again. Michael Wicks has refinished our benches and they are just glowing. Believe it or not our Hibiscus plant still has blooms on it, the Gardena is trying to bloom, the Geranium plants are in full bloom, and the fountain still plays is wonderful sounds of Joy! I share the magic energy of the patio with all of you, may its peaceful loving energy touch you all. May all of you have a wonderful Holiday Season and be sure to visit our website, www.u-c-m.org to access our online magazine, facebook and twitter.

Lightening the Soul

Soul Evolution – From Daily OM (www.dailyom.com)

          From the moment we are born, our souls may feel heavy because they are carrying the weight of all we have lived, loved, and learned in our past incarnations.  Only when we actively seek to work through our issues that do we lighten the load and our souls evolve.  Releasing ourselves of what no longer serves us, such as unwarranted fear, the inability to feel empathy, or self-limiting behaviors, are some of the many challenges we face in this lifetime.  While some issues are the final remains of residue from a past life, other issues offer great challenges because we are meant to work through them throughout this lifetime.

          Often, we expect to recover quickly from difficult or painful circumstances.  When we do not or cannot, we feel emotionally inept or hopeless.  However, the evolution of the soul is an ongoing process that takes many lifetimes.  Even doing our best there are going to be situations, people, and outcomes that we cannot control.  It is also important to remember your experiences now may be setting the groundwork for future healing—in this lifetime or the next one.  The more you release in each time, the more you grow and the more your soul will evolve.

          It is important that we confront what we are called to face in this life and do the work we need to do.  It is also important to remember that the most effective way to let your soul grow is to be an active participant in life.  Be present in each moment and your soul will do this work for you.

MAYBE

Submitted by Rev. Jan Ewers

1. Maybe . . . we were supposed to meet the wrong people before meeting the right one so that, when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

2. Maybe . . . when the door of happiness closes, another opens; but, often times, we look so long at the closed door that we don’t even see the new one which has been opened for us.

3. Maybe . . . it is true that we don’t know what we have until we lose it, but it is also true that we don’t know what we have been missing until it arrives.

4. Maybe . . . the happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

5. Maybe . . . the brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; after all, you can’t go on successfully in life until you let go of your past mistakes, failures and heartaches 

6. Maybe . . . you should dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you dream of, and want to do.

7. Maybe . . . there are moments in life when you miss someone — a parent, a spouse, a friend, a child — so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real, so that once they are around you appreciate them more.

8. Maybe . . . the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.

9. Maybe . . . you should always try to put yourself in others’ shoes.  If you feel that something could hurt you, it probably will hurt the other person, too.

10. Maybe . . . you should do something nice for someone every single day, even if it is simply to leave them alone.  Profound!

11. Maybe . . . giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back.  Don’t expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart; but, if it doesn’t, be content that it grew in yours.

12. Maybe . . . happiness waits for all those who cry, all those who hurt, all those who have searched, and all those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of all the people who have touched their lives.

13. Maybe . . . you shouldn’t go for looks; they can deceive; don’t go for wealth; even that fades away.  Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.  Find the one that makes your heart smile.

14. Maybe . . . you should hope for enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy

15. Maybe . . . you should try to live your life to the fullest because when you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling but when you die, you can be the one who is smiling and everyone around you crying.

Note to Self:  GOD put us here to LOVE one another, So why Not do what we were Born to do! L O V E!

A woman goes to the post office to buy stamps for her Hanukkah cards.

She says to the clerk, “May I have 50 Hanukkah stamps?”

The clerk says, “What denomination?”

The woman says, “Oh my God.  Has it come to this?  Give me 6 Orthodox, 12 Conservative, and 32 Reform.”

It was Hanukkah and the tiny village was in fear of not having any latkes because they had run out of flour.

          Rudi, the rabbi, was called upon to help solve the problem.

          He said, “don’t worry, you can substitute matzo meal for the flour and the latkes will be just as delicious!”

          Sheila looks to her husband and says, “Mortey…you think it’ll work?” and Mortey says,

          “of course! Everybody knows…………………..

Rudolph, the Rab, knows grain dear!”

Stan and John are walking to school one day and Stan is describing his new Playstation 2 to John.  “Where did you get that?”  John asked. “I got it last night for Hanukkah,” said Stan.  “What’s Hanukkah?” John asked.

          “It’s the Jewish holiday where we get presents every night for eight nights to celebrate the festival of lights.”

          “Wow, I wish we got that!”  John exclaimed.  The next day on the way to school John runs up to Stan, curious to see what he got.  He sees that Stan is upset, “What’s wrong?  Where’s your present from last night?” asks John.

          Stan holds up a ball of crumpled wrapping paper, “It was leftovers night.”
