In the Cradle of Christ Consciousness
Jesus was born in the cradle of Christ Consciousness twenty centuries ago. His universal Christ Consciousness is reborn in every wise man. Are you ready in the coming Christmas to expand your soul to behold within yourself the birth of the Omnipresent Christ?
To celebrate the birthday of Jesus with gifts and festivities shows some respect and attention to the ideals of his life. But to meditate and prepare your mind for the holy occasion of Christmas that you may perceive the birth of a new consciousness of universal brotherhood and love for all living creatures is to really celebrate the Christmas experience. Drive away all pride and prejudices from your mind that you may fittingly hold the omnipresent Christ Consciousness in your love-expanded bosom.
If at Christmas you find your strong will unconquered by the tests of temptations, then know Christ is born within you in reality.
If in the coming Christmas you can maintain inner peace when crucified with disquietude, then know Christ is with you.
If at Christmas you can meditate with deep joy in spite of the horde of restless invading thoughts, then know Christ or Divine Joy of meditation has manifested within you.
And when you know your wrath cannot be roused by the crucifixion of wickedness, then know you are ready for Christ. When you feel love for all in spite of any hatred toward you, then know Christ’s altar is created within you.
When you can feel the ecstasy of unbroken joy of meditation all the time within you, then know Christ is with you evermore and that you will celebrate Christmas every moment, every minute, every day, every year unto Eternity within your deathless consciousness.
