NEWSLETTER TO MACLEOD FAMILY & FRIENDS - CHRISTMAS 2015 Page 1

2015 





WHY CAN'T CHRISTMAS TIME HERALD A BETTER WORLD? 

If only human beings could stop killing and destroying one another and love one another then, with reference to Psalm 23:16, "surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life " ? Are humans hell-bent on destroying the world? Does it have to take another world war to stop the rot and change the world for the better? I was inspired to write the adjoining letter in November this year. It's been an awful year globally with ongoing violence and terror in our world.The Moroccan beach hotel and  Paris atrocities and the bombing of the Russian plane over Syria - to mention just a few of the numerous horrendous events amongst  scores of  heinous acts by evil and  crazed people.

If only humans could change! Let's pray for a peaceful Christmas  and a happier 2016 !

ELUSIVE "HAPPINESS" - A  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED DVD 

Dr Wayne Dyer
A month or so ago my son, Michael, introduced the family  to an amazing DVD, called "The Shift", featuring the late Dr Wayne Dyer, an American psychologist who has written many books on how to live life and to tap into God's plan - if one chooses to - or, instead, to try and  do one's own thing in the naive belief that one can be master of one's own destiny.
Dr Dyer maintains that the secret  to finding lifelong happiness and fulfilment is to let go of one's "ego" and let "God and the Universe" direct us. He talks about how we spend nine  months in our mother's wombs where every single one of our needs is taken care of and when we physically enter the outside world and discover we have "free will and choice" we decide to do things "our way" as we grow up. And herein lies, he says, is our big error.We wrongly  become addicted to material things and think that  happiness and fulfillment in every facet of our  lives  is based upon achieving material wealth whereas in fact, in every aspect of our daily lives -  in our business or career, in our  social lives and relationships -  the only way to ensure happiness is to "let go of our egos" and "let God and the Universe take over ...."
