The word Christmas means Christ’s Mass. According to the Greek Orthodox, Catholic & Anglican Christian traditions, mass means a sacrifice. A sacrifice involves giving unconditional love without merits on the part of the receiver. We are totally accepted and loved.
From my clinical experiences, many of our health problems stem from being unloved and unaccepted by our friends, spouse, peers and even our own children. Perhaps the spirit of Christmas can reminds us that despite all our weaknesses, fears, failures and imperfections, we are always loved and accepted.
We are not called to be Perfect, but to be Whole.
I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New year.
Note: My clinic will be closed from Dec 27 till Jan 6 and shall resume service on Jan 8.
