All Icelanders know that Christmas starts at six o’clock on Christmas Eve, then ring the church bells in Christmas, people sit at the table and Christmas has begun. And just at that moment hovers the spirit of joy and peace over the country.
We see this as quite natural, since this has always been so, and although we are in a position to not hear the church bells or sit at the table we know anyway, wherever in the world we are, when the clock strikes six on Christmas Eve, then Christmas has begun.
And at that moment unite the minds of Icelanders into one, thereby creating a strong collective awareness of peace on earth, so all over us and in our hearts will be happiness and warmth.
We know all this because we’ve all experienced it, from the very beginning of our lives, but perhaps not everyone knows how strong energy arises precisely at this moment, force of joy and peace, the energy of all of us, united in one. It is a strong force and good.
And now that we know it, we should remember it, when a lot is going on in the nation and many things to take care of and fix, especially for those disadvantaged. The united awareness of all of us, of joy and peace is not just to save, not just to be used on special days, or this one day of the year, but can be raised anywhere and anytime.
So when any part of the population is in need of all the others, then we should unite in one place, in body and spirit, ring within us the church bells, find the peace in our hearts and unite it with and for all.
But this also applies to all the inhabitants of the earth, all mankind, so when any part of the world is in need of all the others, we should unite into one, the whole world, in body and spirit, at the exact moment, ring within us the church bells, find peace within our hearts and unite it with and for all the world. That is love.
