How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down …..

The words of this Christian hymn came to mind when I was watching the video a few days ago. During this Christmas season we are involved in a whole lot of fuzz with shopping, decorating and cooking. It is good to take some time to step out of this hassle and bussle and appreciate nature.
On a recent road trip I fell in love with the shape of trees which are bare of leaves right now and show their statures of trunks, branches and twigs. I am amazed by the balance the tree shows unless it has been trimmed by the human hand.
With this adoration of nature and the beauty of the created universe, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

The same God who send Jesus two thousand years ago and who’s birthday we are celebrating this week, created all of us to appreciate his creation and to attend him. This attendance has many different faces. We can show it when we go out into nature and admire it. We can go to a worship place of our choice and show our devotion there. We can also serve our neighbor by giving him a kind word or bring an extra cookie plate. Finally, we can attend God by including him in our lives in everything we do.

Surprise yourself by starting to witness small miracles. Your life will become synchronized, and you will observe a flow of events which you could never orchestrate yourself. You will liberate your Divinity in ways you have never dreamed of.

Just think about that intelligence inside yourself which automatically causes your heart to beat 86,400 times a day and creates 10 million new cells each second as 10 million others are dying off. This same intelligence causes your food to be digested while 10,000 trillion cellular actions occur in your body every second. All these things are happening while you are carrying out your regular everyday life. It only feels right to give thanks to that intelligence by paying attention to it. At your very essence you are a spiritual being who has been blessed with many intellectual and emotional functions. Most people are playing too small, only acknowledging a fraction of their mental abilities coupled with limited physical abilities. It is time for you to believe and act according to that spiritual power within you and realize that you can create whatever you choose. You are not alone in the process, that intelligence that manages everything in perfect harmony and order is all knowing and omnipresent. You must assume your own role while trusting its brilliance.

You are a miracle and a genius capable of the incredible accomplishments because that same intelligence created YOU.
