A Different Christmas Story

A Different Christmas Story was sent to me by a minister friend who is into mysticism and spirituality sans religion.  I asked him for permission to print some of what he wrote and he said yes.  I hope you find this not only interesting but informative.  

To all, Let Your Light Shine!

From the vastness and darkness of The Great No-Thing which gave rise and birth to The All, from which all flows, visible and invisible, there is a Light that shines brightly within us called The Christ (Christos), a title meaning the anointed one.  Each of us has this Light within us and to the point we recognize our spiritual power and ability to overcome the challenges in the desert of life, we find, have revealed to us, our true inner nature and life becoming a light in this world.  The birth of the Christ (Christos) within begins with a pinpoint of light of understanding appearing in our mind.  As we recognize it and follow this light of spiritual revelation, star in the east, we become en-lightened, as our inner wisdom and unconditional love marry, become as one, thus is the seed of spiritual understanding and awareness planted and as we nurture it and become enveloped in it’s love and light we transform over time, becoming more aware of our spirituality and inner power to overcome “what seems to be” with “the power that is.”  In the ancient teachings of spiritual evolvement symbols and stories where metaphors and enhanced when a person of greatness came to be.  You are a person of greatness and it is now time to write your new story with the awareness of your inner power and life to overcome seeming appearances of this life.  Be transformed by the renewing of your mind, for you are and always have been the beloved. 

As the great mystic Meister Eckhart stated,

“We are celebrating the feast of the Eternal Birth which God the Father has borne and never ceases to bear in all eternity… But if it takes not place in me, what avails it? Everything lies in this, that it should take place in me.”
Meister Eckhart

“There exists only the present instant… a Now which always and without end is itself new. There is no yesterday nor any tomorrow, but only Now, as it was a thousand years ago and as it will be a thousand years hence.”
Meister Eckhart

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is from the Kybalion.

“We do not live in a world of dreams, but in a Universe which, while relative, is real so far as our lives and actions are concerned.  Our business in the Universe is not to deny its existence, but to LIVE, using the Laws to rise from lower to higher–living on, doing the best we can under the circumstances arising each day, and living, so far is possible, to highest ideas and ideals.”

Friday Quotes

   Friday Quotes is from the book, High Mysticism, by Emma Curtis Hopkins.

“The rise of boldness, authority, is the rise of inborn superiority to surrounding conditions.  It is wresting the tongue from outward descriptions to conform to heavenly fact.  Authoritative speech brushes aside the cobwebs of outward appearance.  It is back by the mystery of the conquering kingdom of the Inmost Actual.”

” The mind is not capable of bringing anything to pass except it be transfixed by inward visioning.  Inner vision is the vital essential to the mind.  When this faculty is exalted, the mind quickens with original ideas and has high instructions.”

If you are interested in reading High Mysticism be sure to have an old-fashioned dictionary with you as there is a difference in word definitions and usage,  it was written in the 1800’s.
