Catching The Spirit

This morning I am thinking about catching the spirit. My thoughts on a few levels. Religion. The spirit within me. What I feel daily of late.  What I feel about holidays.

As far as religion goes I don’t grasp the concept. Belief in a higher power fails me. Many attempts to achieve understanding in my youth always left me puzzled. I never could get it. Yet I do feel connected to the natural world. Observations that leave me in awe without trying. Possibly I overthink. Unable to attain blind acceptance.

Faith perhaps plays the largest part of catching the spirit. Complete trust in someone or something. I can not honestly say I grasp that either. So many times being proven wrong when thinking now I get it. Oops, wrong again.

I do have confidence in myself. More times than not I will choose to do the right thing. Leaving my personal spirit intact. That spirit shaken when I have chosen the wrong path. Gaining my spirit back when I saw the light and became able to change.

Well this is getting a little to deep. Time to move on and accept that for me spirit is about feeling at home. Wherever I am feeling content that it will all work out. That blind acceptance I get.

The Christmas spirit comes slower to me now than in my youth. It comes to me slowly but sinks in when surrounded by family. For the next week I will immerse myself in family as best I can. So posting will be sporadic. Here is wishing for the next week you are able to share in love of family and friends. May you be moved by the spirit. Catching the little things that leave you content. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all…
