Amen! Thank you for expressing what I've been thinking and feeling for so long. Every year I ask that gifts not be bought for me, but rather donations be made on my behalf. I have yet one person do what I have asked! Somehow they've equated gift giving in Christmas to love-giving. I have also asked for time over a gift... Invariably I get the time AND I get the gift! I'm appreciative of the gesture for sure, but in my quest for simplicity and truth I find that the rush for gift buying, the guess work, the budgeting... All create a distracting buzz from what the experience can really be. It takes a superhuman effort to slow our minds down long enough to really ponder about the meaning of a God incarnate -in our individual lives. So yes! Thank you for expressing your idea of a revolution... It's been long coming for me! Merry Christmas!
