Christmas Is Your Consciousness
Christmas is the Christ Consciousness in action. Christmas is the constant radiation – activity – of the ever present radiant Christ Consciousness. You are conscious. You are conscious right here and right now. Furthermore, you are constantly conscious; and this constant Consciousness you are is never interrupted.
There really is no consciousness for you to have, or to be, other than the Christ Consciousness. This being true, the everlasting, ever living Christ Consciousness is the Consciousness you are right now. Wherever you are, the Christ Consciousness is.
The appearance, or revelation of the Christ Consciousness, is the genuine significance of Christmas. The Christ Consciousness that you are is forever revealing Itself, as you very Identity. This being true, Christmas is a constant experience as your constant conscious existence. In other words: The ever new, ever joyous Self-revealing Christ Consciousness is forever alive as the Consciousness that you are. Thus, Christmas is NOW. Christmas is forever here, and forever NOW.
You and Christ Jesus Are Inseparably One
Of course, this realization in no way lessens or diminishes our love for the glorious One they called Jesus the Christ. On the contrary, our love for this blessed One is greater than ever before, because now we understand the genuine meaning of the Christ that he so beautifully brought to our attention. And we recognize our inseparable Oneness as this very same Christ Consciousness. We know that never can we be separated from the Consciousness that was – and is – the Christ. Therefore, never can we be separated from the loving unselfed One who was called by the name of Jesus, the Christ.
Rejoice And Celebrate Love, Joy And Peace
One of the most beautiful aspects of Christmas is the unselfed Love that is so evident at this period of the year. Let us rejoice in the manifestation of this great Love. Love, Joy, and Peace are inseparably One. And this One is the Christ Consciousness that you are. So, greet this Christmas season with unselfed Love, with Infinite Peace; and with boundless Joy.
Greet this Christmas season in the full and complete knowledge that the eternal Christmas exists within and as your own Christ Consciousness. Rejoice in the knowledge that the birthless deathless Christ is ever present, the Christmas is forever NOW.
