A Very Important Christmas Message
No matter what your religious faith is, what is termed “The Holiday Season” by most of the world, is a special time of year, one that has the sense of a collective surge in positive energy. This energy can be transformative in many situations. This “poem” is about one area of “reality” that I would like to see transformed into a different type of reality.
My Special Christmas Poem
Then one frog
on Christmas Eve,
He was gay,
and not in a
Deck The Halls way.
He didn't get anything
Is that what
you were waiting for?
Get out of here,
stop looking at me.
You're just like that fool
that keep telling me
I know Donner and Blitzen,
Prancing around all high,
and mighty like Cupid.
I've never even been to the damn North Pole
that just plain old stupid.
Let Me Explain

If you have read this far you may have been amused by this little exercise in writing, or you may have been offended, then again you may just think it is me being stupid. What is not amusing, and is extremely offensive and stupid, is that each year, thousands of people with psychological disorders spend the holidays coping with the misery of their disorder.
No matter how they acquired their situation, be it their own fault, from years of substance abuse, a genetic condition, or caused by an accident. The holiday season is a time to show a little compassion for them. I am not talking about giving a financial donation to a charity that helps such folk, or even helping the individuals themselves.
While this is great if you do, but a gift of cash, or even time, which are external things, are not going to take away the agony for some of these folks, as most of their agony is completely internal.
What I am Talking About
What I am talking about is giving these people some mental or spiritual attention (which is not preaching your religion to them), for a few moments this holiday season to wish/manifest happiness, hope, and above all, health into their lives. The main purpose is that of envisioning them whole again. What I mean is to spend time "Thinking" about them in a positive way, or praying for them - not preaching at them!
Let me repeat and clarify this again, the main purpose is that of envisioning them whole again. None of this business of “Oh, Lord take away their affliction”, “But for the grace of God go I”, or “That is sad, but that's how Karma works.”. Those types of mental chatter are just self serving mind games people play on themselves, and this particular act of intention/prayer is not about you, it is about that person you wish to have a transformation.
Simply envision/pray that person become whole and well and leave it there. Leave it there!
So when you are out and about this holiday season if you see some rag-a-muffin sitting in an ally singing mixed up Christmas songs, do not look at them with disgust or even with pity, instead take a few moments, and a little bit of that Holiday spirit/energy, to bring that person into wellness.
Smile at them, say "Hello", and perhaps see them as humans.
