The experience of life is a psychic one – it all comes through the filters of the psyche (hence ‘psychic’) – and those filters will, in turn, affect our emotions and ultimately the decisions we make in how to react or move forward.
Here we are – another December and chance to say “Merry Christmas!” and be in good cheer. We also hear “Peace on earth and goodwill toward men (and women).” It’s tradition to utter these phrases and wish these ideals every winter... and in today’s massively divisive climate, it demands even more intention and inspection. But we have to ask: Why only in December? Why do we not wish and intend this good cheer and well-being year round?
