Black Friday

In the US, black Friday is about retailers finally getting out of “the red,” with enough revenue to make their operations profitable. But, in other places around the world,  “black Friday” may denote the aftermath of violence, death, and destruction. It might be important for us to keep this in mind when we are tempted to get caught up in lines, traffic, shopping, or family dramas.

We all have a choice; we can choose to live in the freedom of a higher state of awareness outside of our small narrow construct, or we can live in bondage in that lower state of me, me, me, and my stuff.

Higher self

Wherever you are in the world, I hope you will bring some light to Black Friday.

  1. Care nothing for Black Friday. Seems like utter silliness, to stand in line for hours, push and shove other people around. The crowd running at full speed, right over the top of others and sometimes causing a death. I never venture near a store on Black Friday or the two days following. Christmas shopping frenzie is totally out of control. Nothing serene about any of this stupid behavior from human beings. Sorry, just my opinion.

    • I feel similarly, although am compelled to remember that some are motivated into the fray for their families who are scraping to get by. It is difficult to face children empty handed at Christmas.
