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.
