An Advent Wish.

Be on the alert for symptoms of inner HOPE, PEACE, JOY and LOVE. The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to this virus and it is
possible people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

Some signs and symptoms of the Advent Virus:

· A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.

· An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.

· A loss of interest in judging other people.

· A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.

· A loss of interest in conflict.

· A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)

· Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

· Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.

· Frequent attacks of smiling.

· An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

· An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

I hope that you are able to use your time well this Advent.

Many Blessings,
