( Dennis Martin: I received this charming story of the Season from a friend of mine. She said I could share it with you. Sometimes, I think we in this Blog are viewed only as Realtors. But, the message here is for us all especially in these times!)
Samantha slept and she dreamed. In her dream, she was in the North Pole, watching as Santa and his elves made ready the presents for children worldwide.
Santa was whistling and the elves were all singing to themselves. Samantha tapped Santa on the shoulder.
“Santa, I need to speak with you. I know you’re very busy, but do you have a moment? It’s very important.”
Santa put down the doll he was working on, smiled, and motioned for Samantha to sit down in his overstuffed velvet couch. It was quite a large couch, and there was more than enough room for Santa to sit down as well.
“What is it, little one? For you to come through the dream world, it must be very important. Tell me.”
“Santa, don’t you know what’s going on out there in the world? Banks are failing, people are losing their homes, white collar criminals are stealing billions, jobs are being lost. Santa, it’s just awful. I don’t know what’s real any more and I’m scared.”
Santa smiled. “Dear one, I can’t tell you how happy I am to see you. It is a wonderful feat to travel as you have to be here. (Santa smiled to himself – this was a good sign – a very good sign indeed.)
Sam scrunched down into the comfy pillows. Santa seemed so non-pulsed by her worries, the elves were still humming to themselves, and the festive room hugged her spirits.
She wanted to stay in this dream forever. It was so happy.
“Samantha, I’m going to share with you what I believe is real. The kind of real that can never be changed.”
“It is the human spirit itself, Samantha. The core of which is the heart. The heart that deeply wants to give love, be loved and know love.
History shows us proof of that Spirit with glorious symphonies written by deaf composers, Olympic medals awarded to so called handicapped persons, the impact on the world of one deaf and blind woman. Every day there is a new story of an unstoppable Human Spirit who, against all odds, and outside of all logic, achieved the seemingly impossible.
And that is where the ‘real’ world, resides, Samantha. Outside of logic. If every great idea, composition, work of art, piece of music, architectural design, or any creation had been judged through logic, I cannot imagine how barren this world would be.
But you see, Samantha, the human spirit and the human heart, trump “logic” every time. Because the spirit and the heart connect with the Vast Intelligence that is greater than anything we can imagine. And more loving.
It is your logical mind that is producing your fear right now Samantha. Focus instead on the part of you that is from your spirit and you will see a different world.
Your best gift, Samantha, is your child heart that believes in things unseen, and carries dreams never before dreamed. A heart that can see fairies and angels and even Santa Claus. A heart that can spread so much light because of it’s innocence and infinite Spirit.
No one, ever, can take that heart from you, Samantha. Just as no one can take away the part of yourself that is outside of change …. your Infinite Self.
Nothing can stop the unstoppable Spirit. Nothing. It will rise above every circumstance, every event, every imagined ‘reality.’ What you see out there in the world, dear one, is a re-arrangement. The foundations built on greed are failing because greed is not in alignment with the truth of the human spirit.
Greed is nothing more than a belief in lack – and those who employed greed were afraid there wasn’t enough. More importantly, that THEY weren’t enough without having more than others. They forgot the truth of their own design.
But there is good news, Samantha.
Out of these seemingly impossible and grim situations, the human spirit will rise, as it has again and again. You will see what you call miracles. You will see evidence of amazing acts of compassion and Spirit and kindness. You will see the one thing that no one can possess or destroy – the Human Spirit’s ability to transform anything.
You will see an elevation in human consciousness toward what is truly ‘real.”
And you will see many like yourself reclaim the magic of your inner knowing as you explore the realms of the unseen and unexplored.
So, yes, Samantha, let me assure you, just as I did your kindred spirit Virginia, who asked about me many years ago, “There is a Santa Claus. A soon to be even busier one.”
(This morning I was speaking with my friend Dennis and he could tell I’d been listening to the news. And all the fear based energy out there. Because he is one of my angels he immediately coached me to change direction. “You need to write a story. A happy story. I’ll look for it later today.” (God Bless the human angels in our lives, eh?)
So, I sat down to write a happy story. And as I did, I remembered this amazing truth — it is MY mind, these are MY thoughts, I can choose them, and it is my CHOICE moment by moment what I let in. I also remembered the power of good friends.)
Inspired by the original story “Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus.”
