December 2017 Lifestyle Letter

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”


— Henry Stanley Haskins


Our December issue is dedicated to people that have that something special within. They give to others because they care, and they care about others because it’s the right thing to do. It seems like the world has been going topsy-turvy lately, but if we look at history, it’s always been chaotic, yet there have always been those special people that have put others before themselves, because of what lies within. 


This month of December is the time of year we celebrate giving to others. We give because it makes us feel better about ourselves, and it’s a way to let others know that we care. Being human, giving is our natural state, just as loving is our natural state. Unfortunately, we suppress our natural state in the name of wanting/attachment. If we can get rid of our attachment to a single thing, we are on the way to liberation. And if we can learn to love just a little bit more, we will make this world a better place to live.


Happy December, San Clemente. We love you!
