Dear Family and Friends,
THIS CHRISTMAS DAY
Today I recognize the incarnation of Christ in the manger of my own heart.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.-Isaiah 9:6
At this season, we commemorate the birth of Christ, Son of the living God, in the human heart. This birth, which eternally takes place, and this Son who is forever being born in the consciousness of man, is being born in us today.
In reverence, we kneel before this Divine Incarnation, the Spirit in all humankind, the Divine Presence manifest in all things. With joy we accept this Spirit which indwells us, bringing with It as It must the life and love, the truth and beauty that are of God.
As there is but one Presence, so there is but One Expression. As the Presence is universal, so the Expression is universal with It. There is that in each one of us as eternal as God, as endless as Being, as old as the Ancient of Days, as new as the first blush of morning light across the horizon, ever present in the eternal now.
Unto this Expression, which we are and which all humankind must be, and unto God, the eternal Presence of all, we offer our gifts of love, of adoration, and of praise.
O Blessed Presence, closer to us than our breath, infinite Spirit indwelling our mind, eternal Beauty in which we are immersed; O Light Divine in which there is no darkness; O Love fulfilled, we are that which Thou art that which we are. Infinite Presence, filled with Light in which there is no darkness, we are One with Thee. In the stillness of Silence, in the beauty of Wholeness, in the peace of the eternal Givingness and of everlasting Love, we embrace all creation.
Let this day be blessed, this hour be hallowed, this moment be Divine!
