In the time of Jesus, there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus who came to Jesus in the night and asked,”how can a man be born when he is old?”Jesus replied,”I tell you the truth,no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is Born again.”~~~~ Gospel of John chapter 3:verse 3 New International Version~~~~~
Silent night,Holy nightAll is calm,all is bright!Sleep in Heavenly Peace!
Within the silence of each our minds and hearts, a sublime revolution is taking place.Within the womb of our being,male or female,we are each pregnant with Divine Love.We await the Birth of the Christ/God Consciousness or in Buddhism the Buddha Nature.In this Birth, The True Self and Luminous Awareness become the Bright Shining Star projecting from the depths of our Being out into the world for all to see!We truly rest in Heavenly Peace in the knowledge of our True Nature that awaits to be born anew…
So how are we to be born again as Jesus had said so that we may see that kingdom of God?___
___when we change,transform from the old habituated self/unwholesome life patterns___
___when we die to selfishness/egocentric identification into selflessness and virtuous practices___
___when we awake from unconsciousness(ignorance) into Consciousness(Awareness)
___when we remove the blindfolds of falsehood and fearfulness to courageously live in the Light of Truth___
___when we cease following the crowd and walk through the narrow gate inwardly into the self____
There is no other kingdom of Heaven/God(somewhere in the future or destination) but the only one we each carry within ourselves Now in this very moment,yes we can give birth potentially to be the Light of Love to offer as our gift to the world!
Spend a silent time with ourselves in sacred wonder!
Peace and positive changes begin with each of us!The world is changing,the world is being blessed with so much gifts and bestowment of graciousness despite all the chaos that is happening and has happened.
Within each of us,if we dare to look deeply and truthfully,we find that we are spiritually evolving…we cannot remain the same, untouched,unmoved or stuck in a negative way permanently.
Every moment, truth and goodness are surfacing awaiting for us to act upon.We are the True Bright Shining Star that the world needs for healing and peaceful resolutions….we start with each of us opening up to live in the awareness of love and kindness in our own lives,in our family, in our society,thus permeating and radiating out to the world!
Christians and non-Christians alike we count-down to this special day called Christmas—The story of a very physically pregnant Mary,her betrothed named Joseph and their travel to a town called Bethlehem in Israel.How they faced hardships,humility, rejections and various anxieties on their journey…to eventually joyfully give birth to a boy child who would bring Light to the world through his enlightened teachings.
Are we honestly counting down to merely enjoy ourselves in the festivities of Christmas or is there a a deeper truth waiting to give birth?
