Everyone’s Christmas

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of the Christ-child within us all. This is taught through the story of Jesus, but there is also a very important significance of this story to each and every person on earth, whether they are Christian or not. What is a Christian, anyway? Someone who follows the Christ. This may or may or may not mean the man, Jesus. The meaning is the same, nonetheless.

Jesus came with a message of love. This is the example we’re asked to follow. Jesus told us we share the same “Father.” He told us we, too, are capable of all the works he did and more. He told us the kingdom of God is within and he gave us the example of meditation and prayer. These are our paths to communicate with the greatness that lives in us all. God is in us, and the Christ is God expressed through man, as Jesus perfectly displayed. This is the story, in part, to sum up my understanding. We are to follow the light, as do men of true wisdom, and to watch over our flocks (our thoughts) at night, in the darkest times when despair and temptation could easily overtake us like wolves, but rather to just follow the light that illumines all things, the brightest star of all possibility and hope.

The Christ-child was born in a modest setting, which we, too, will find is the birth-place of our highest selves, pure and true. True power and glory is born of humility. The virgin birth represents purity. So with purity, perfect love takes form. Perfect Love, Goodness, Strength…all things of virtue. All the true Power in the world comes from this well from within our own beings, and also the interactions of these with the physical earth while we are in physical form. Both are created perfectly. It is our realization of such which is born on Christmas day. The birth signifies the perfect beginning of God in human form. The Christ-child was prophesied to appear in human form. I believe it is within each of us, and that perhaps Jesus was the example of this, showing the way, knowing who he was without doubt. We have all the doubt in the world, and in fact, we are taught that it is blasphemy to think otherwise, when Jesus himself told us these things. There is much contradiction in religion, perhaps because religion is a powerful tool of control, and it is often used in that way. To tell people they’ll go to eternal damnation for this or that, well, that’s not what my God of Love has to say. I think hell is within, the same as heaven, and certain things we do in this life and poor choices we make certainly can take us to hell, now in this living world. Other people can take us there, too, but I believe we have the power to overcome, through this Christ-presence within which carries us through, when we turn to our inner-strength. Not blasphemy; but rather part of our incredibly perfect design as having been created in the image of pure Goodness and Love, from the moment we first came to life!

These are my opinions, for what they are worth, and they are subject to change. I do not profess to have all the answers, but I have given a lot of thought to such matters and I hope that by sharing my insights with you that perhaps you’ll further develop your own.

Merry Christmas, to all, whether you’re a traditional Christian or not! I was raised a Christian, but many other Christians said I was not a Christian at all because I had non-traditional beliefs. I really don’t care what I’m called! I believe in the Power of Goodness, of Love and of Life…Pure and Perfect…to heal us all and to save us from the hell we sometimes create. I believe in a Power much greater than just little ol’ me, a Power capable of making the winds blow, the rains fall, and everything else. I believe I’m part of that, and so are you, and so are the trees, the frogs and everything on earth and beyond. I believe we are all capable of much more than any of us have any idea. Even the awareness of this I describe is just scratching the surface. There is so much more, and it all comes from finding that place in the humblest little part of ourselves and honoring the wee little child born within. Nurture this child of purity and goodness. Surely he is a child of God!

People will be against you in life, and particularly so when you follow the Light of Truth. It seems many are threatened by people finding their true Source of Power when perhaps they may like to exploit, but you have been given gifts. Precious gifts. This is a story for ALL! Follow the Light. Follow Love.

Merry Christmas to All!
