The true magic of this season lies within YOU! You are not nothing. Whether you are celebrating the birth of Jesus, the death & resurrection of the various sun deities, or any other spiritual traditions, experiences, teachers, or guides... The TRUTH is self-evident in every context. The Divine loved you enough to send many anointed messengers to show you who you are and what you are capable of realizing that is right there within your DNA. The early Christian church understood this and went on to produce miracles similar to those attributed to Christ. People of all traditions and faiths are realizing this. Miracles, the extraordinary, paranormal, and mysterious are regular topics of conversation, because they are a regular part of our very being!
Many spiritual texts of various religions teach that The Divine was/is pleased with The Divine's creation. And, in fact, that humanity was created in the image of The Divine! If you have taken even a cursory glance at the various stories within the Holy Bible and other religious texts, it doesn't take long to realize that The Divine is a mixed bag of traits. The Divine has been known to be angry, jealous, murderous, as well as loving, gentle, merciful and compassionate. There is no trait you possess that is not an aspect of the Divine's self incarnate and expressed in you! Nothing exists apart from The Divine Mind, The All.
You, as the mixed bag of challenges & opportunities, shadow & light, with all of your resulting expressions, are a unique glimpse into the vastly creative, expressive nature and magic of The Divine's self.
The Divine is in us as we are in The Divine. Every living thing has a measure of magic inherent in its being and humanity. When we "awaken" to our own Inner Light is when we realize that we have an extra generous helping of that magic, and are called upon to do our part to "awaken" others to this same reality.
This is the very light which I experience to be the Light of Christmas and of the Season. I see it in every one of you. I pray that during this Season of Light, you will come to recognize that Light in yourself!
I wish you happiness, love, and endless perfect moments during this holiday season and throughout the year.
"Self-Realization is necessary before God-Realization" – Vedic Adage
"When you wake up to the Divine Consciousness within you and your divine identity, you wake up simultaneously to the Divine Consciousness appearing as all other beings. And this is not poetry and this is not a feeling, this is a direct experience of the divine light living in and as all other beings. And until this realization is firm in you, you do not know who or where you are."
--- Andrew Harvey
"Over the years my religion has changed and my spirituality has evolved. Religion and spirituality are very different, but people often confuse the two. Some things cannot be taught, but they can be awakened in the heart. Spirituality is recognizing the divine light that is within us all. It doesn't belong to any particular religion; it belongs to everyone."
--- Muhammad Ali
"If I see one dilemma with Western man, it's that he can't accept how beautiful he is. He can't accept that he is pure light, that he's pure love, that he's pure consciousness, that he's divine."
--- Ram Dass
