Merry Christmas 2018
Said the wise, "vanity of vanities, everything is running after the wind, pure vanity", and taught us that within us there is an insatiable appetite, which seeks that unattainable pleasure.
Thus, the wise man said, that of all the things that exist on earth, only two give pleasure, all the rest neither satisfies nor fills:
1. The satisfaction of finishing a work,
2. and to eat.
I remember years ago when I was very enthusiastic about achieving perfection: I wanted to have the best audio equipment, in a way that equated reality. I wanted technology to match reality. And that's how I started a hobby. However, the cutting-edge technology I was looking for was extremely expensive. I was looking for that perfection, and even there, in the most sublime, technology could not be like reality —It was another reality. It was vanity of vanities, running after the wind, and to never find that unattainable pleasure of which our soul is thirsty of.
Now, then, the wise man also said other words to us. "From this Earth, those two things are those that give us the most satisfaction. However, there is another thing, which is not of the Earth, which offers that satisfaction that our soul seeks; and that is the only one that can truly satisfy the soul: the Will of God "
The Will of God, which is the one pleasure found in those words that say: "Thy will be done, and not mine, on earth, as in heaven, in our lives", or, "Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be done unto me, as according to thy Will/Word"
Well, what more could the soul wish for, than to take refuge in its creator, and to be at his side every day of its life ...
That is the thirst that is not satiated by anything in this world, because it craves more than this world can offer, because inside is such a great void, that only he who has no beginning or end, infinite, can He only fill. That substance is the Will of God, His Word, that we be with him, in him, in the infinite of eternity, forever. And therefore, that is why it says, that He has placed the infinite in the very deepest part of our being. There is a very special place, which he has reserved for his only Son, his throne in our heart.
You will tell me, "and who is he?"
He is the one who obeys the Father, until death, and death of Cross. He is very brave, like none. He trust fully in our Father, he obeys, as a responsible son. Jesus, the one who we will be 2018 years old very soon. Soon and very soon we will celebrate 2018 years since the birth of Christ in the non adjusted Gregorian Calendar; the Kings Calendar who rules the Earth as a Lamb: poor, humble and servant. The Lamb of God.
Merry Christmas 2018!
Long Live our Savior, Jesus Christ!
