Make Time for Celebrations that Matter

Our most powerful tool to deal with problems is…each other.

Easter is a big deal in my life and the life of my family.  Yesterday, we celebrated Easter, and it filled my heart and soul with enormous joy, and the hearts and souls of the friends and family who joined us.

What fills your heart and soul with such joy?  I hope you make time for celebrations that matter.  I hope you make time to stop and relish what we have in life.  As a rabbi once wrote, “Happiness is not having what you want, it’s wanting what you have.”

Problems come up all the time in life, some major, most minor.  Our most powerful tool to deal with problems is…each other.  The connections we make with each other, and with ideals, beliefs, and traditions that move us deeply, are the lifelines we all need to thrive in life.

None of us can go it alone.  In each other we find God’s messengers.  We are all angels, so to speak, appearing to one another often when least expected with the most desperately-needed help or news.  All each of us needs to do is keep our eyes and hearts open.

The greatest mistake we can make is to shut down.  It is often what we want to do when we are hurting–just make the world go away–but that is the worst thing we can do.

Instead, we should open our eyes and be ready to open our hearts when someone, out of what seems like nowhere, provides us with exactly what we need.  These miracles happen all the time.  Sometimes we miss them, because we are preoccupied.  But sometimes we receive them for what they are–miracles of healing and grace–and we, for a brief but spectacular moment, feel a relief and joy we never will forget.

Today I ask us all to remember those moments.  Remember the help you once received and will receive again.  And remember the help you gave, and will give again.

Is it too much to call us angels?  I don’t mean to push religion on any of you.  As you know, if you read this newsletter regularly, that is not my style.  We all have our own beliefs, and that’s the way it should be.

In calling us angels I am simply coining a term for who we are when we are at our best, when we do the work of the force that oversees the universe.  I call that force God.  You might call it particle physics, or nature, or the great unknown.  So be it.

In any case, what I call God works through us all the time.  My wish for you–and for me–and for every person in this season of Easter, Passover, and spring, is that we all open our eyes and hearts so that we can see and feel the good news when it appears in our lives or when we are called upon to deliver it.

Warm wishes,
Ned
