A difficult year is coming to an end. Humanity is faced with a cluster of unprecedented difficulties, ranging from climate issues to war and the struggle for political power. Our democracy and privacy are at risk.
Meanwhile Christmas is celebrated in a tradition of joy and reunion. Gifts are exchanged as a sign of one’s gratitude. The tune of ‘Silent Night’, a Christmas carol composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber, is heard throughout the night, touching our emotions.
‘Silent Night’ also offers the opportunity to slow down and reflect on one’s inner peace. Following this thought, I have added the link to an Essay I wrote over two years ago which – in my view – still holds true. With that done, I wish you a very Merry Christmas!MORE
