‘Become more and more loving and you will become more and more joyful. Don’t worry if your love is not reciprocated – that isn’t the point. Joy follows love whether that love is returned or not, whether the other is responsive or not. If you are loving, you are joyful and that is more than enough and more than one should expect. The beauty of love is that its result and value are intrinsic and they do not depend on the response of another.’ Osho

‘My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?’ Bob Hope

Jumping spiritual hurdles is quite possible, but they have to be dealt with one at a time. Alas, it’s in the nature of things – or rather our Karma – that no sooner the one before us has been mastered, another rears its head. Our responses depend on the knowledge we possess at any given moment, the degree of our comprehension and the way we use it in every one of our daily encounters. That’s why there would be no point in trying to get the answers to all our question at once. That too is a road that has to be walked one step at a time. And first of all our inner confidence and faith that the solutions to our problems will always come has to establish itself within. And with every obstacles that has been overcome through our inner guidance’s advice, our faith and trust steadily grows that with the help and will of God and the Angels really all things are possible, crooked corners be made straight and any condition of every aspect of our being healed.

Through our conscious connection with God and the Angels, which each one of us can only establish through their own experiences, our earthly self in co-operation with its heavenly counterpart gradually becomes steadier and more sure of itself. We are then no longer in danger of losing the urge to keep on keeping on, regardless of what life may still have to bring us. It is best to tackle issues and situations head-on, and keeping our vision firmly focused on the knowledge that God and the Angels are helping us to work our way through them. Even though it is still necessary to proceed with caution, we can do so with confidence and love in our hearts for God and the whole of Creation, including every one of our siblings in the great family of humankind.

All characteristics and powers that are in God are also in us and everything that is in our lives was created by each one of us ourselves. In any given moment our own thoughts, words and actions are the seeds we are sowing to bring future things and situations into being. But regardless of this, everything that appears in our lives is a gift that is freely given to us by God and the Angels. Because they love us totally and unconditionally and care for us, they are constantly providing everybody’s needs, physical and spiritual ones alike. Whatever one of us requires is there at the right moment, so that we should learn from it and through this our consciousness expand in wisdom and understanding. That has always been the purpose of every human lifetime that was ever spent on the Earth, including yours and mine.

When in the course of any of our lifetimes something good happens to us unexpectedly, for as long as we are unaware of the working of those in the spiritual background of life, we may think of it as a miracle. And yes, that’s what it is, even though it’s something we ourselves created earlier in this lifetime or previous ones by sending something good into our world. This is how the Universal laws ensure that any kind of bread cast onto the waters of life really does return to us. It takes a long time until we realise that we ourselves created the miracle and we have the power to create more and more of them, for ourselves and our whole world. So, let’s get on with it!

Every human spirit and soul, from the moment of their first release into earthly life, is travelling towards their reunion with God. Whether someone is as yet aware of this or not and whether they believe it or not, when you tell them about it, this is true. When the task we are involved in comes from our heart and we strive for honesty and truth at all times, and when we show nothing but kindness to everything we encounter, not merely other human beings, we begin to be blessed with Divine illumination and the loving union between us and the Great Universal Spirit is taking place.

I believe that the story of the life of the Master Jesus was once given to humankind as an allegory of how each one of us, as soon as we have become sufficiently evolved, is required to conduct ourselves, not only in our daily lives on the outer plane but – far more importantly – on the inner level. The birth of Jesus, his temptations, illumination, crucifixion and ascension provide us with illustrations of the initiations, i.e. experiences every human spirit on the Earth plane eventually has to undergo on its way back into the full conscious awareness of its true nature and oneness with God.

The tale of the baby in the manger and its visitors, the three wise men, contains a wealth of hidden esoteric wisdom. It must have puzzled the sages of our world for a very long time why gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh should be given to a newly born child. This was done because this particular part of the Jesus legend is filled with symbolisms. Gold stands for the Sun and material health, frankincense or incense for wisdom, and myrrh for bitterness and sorrow. All of them are gifts from the wise ones in charge of us and our world on the Highest levels. Because every child of Earth needs these gifts for a full experience of life in physicality, they are sent to every one of us whether in any given lifetime we are born to wealth or poverty. The gifts are teaching us how to deal with all aspects of the material world, with its great gifts just as much as the humble ones.

When we have matured into spiritual adulthood and learnt how to use the gifts from the three wise men wisely, i.e. with the kindness and gratitude even the smallest present from anyone deserves, we have reached the developmental stage of taking control of everything the Universe puts at our disposal. Yet, in order to get us there we first have to learn how to deal with the gift of sorrow and bitterness that is an inevitable part of every earthly life, for without experiences of this nature we would not learn anything. The gift that arises from any kind of suffering we have to endure is the one of wisdom and sweetness. And frankincense burns within us each time we are reaching out to the Heavens in true prayers. From human hearts they rise like incense up to the Highest and call from there the responses our souls are crying for.

The three wise men in the original prophesy were described to be kings. They are a metaphor for the Angels and Masters from the highest levels of life, who are in charge of and responsible for the development of us and our world. They have been given this task by the Great Father/Mother of all life, our true parents. They are as much part of us as we are of them and on the inner level everything is one and there is no separation between anything. This means that they accompanying every soul through all aspects of its education that for each one of us consists of experiencing all levels of life. At all times they are guiding and protecting us and no child of Earth is ever left entirely to its own devices. Becoming familiar with the sorrow and bitterness of earthly life, as well as its joys and pleasures is an inevitable part of every soul’s curriculum in physicality, without these things no growth and expansion of consciousness would be possible.

In never ending cycles and circles the evolution of all life inexorably moves forwards and upwards – and we with it – onto ever higher and more beautiful levels of experience. Humankind’s destiny is indeed a high and holy one, for we are young Gods in the making. That is why lifetime after lifetime and round and round the wheel of life, whose symbol is the zodiac, every child of Earth must wander, as in this way along it can learn from and grow, each through our own experiences.

Every new lifetime takes us through a different sign and house of the zodiac. In each one of them different lessons are integrated and character aspects acquired, which are re-enforced each time we re-enter the same sign in other lifetimes. The more we learn to pay attention and willingly listen to what the stars can teach us, the more the signs and houses can impart their special blessings upon us. All qualities and powers that are in God are also in us and each one of us earthlings contains the very best as well as the worst. Our potential is unlimited and anything anyone else can do, we can do too. If that’s what we wish with all our heart and soul, within reason the Highest will help us to bring it in manifestation, so that we may learn from the outcome. Any spiritual gift we acquire in the form of wisdom and understanding is ours to keep in all Eternity – no force between Heaven and Earth will or can take them from us.

Success

It’s not the amount of money we have,
Or how many acres we own.
It’s not the mansions we live in
That spells success in our home.

It’s the little things we do each day,
The kind words that are spoken.
It’s helping those who are down and out,
And healing hearts that are broken.

It’s doing any job as best we can.
It’s the loving and giving in life.
It’s the keeping our eye on higher things
And our chins up in every strife.

So, if you’re the kind that wants to succeed,
Make sure you help souls in distress.
A life that is clean, a heart that is true,
Doing our best, at all times,
That alone is true success.

How much better we left our world
Than we once found it,
And the efforts we made to achieve this,
That alone is what counts when,
At the end of our present lifetime,
We once more stand before ourselves,
In the spirit world.

Stripped of everything that belongs to the Earth,
We assess our performance so far.
Everything we have done in all our lifetimes
Up to that point,
Are placed into the scales of Divine justice.
Material success on its own
Brings no spiritual progress and
When weighed in these scales,
It is found wanting.

Top of the list of desirable characteristics we have been placed on the Earth plane to acquire is loving wisely, the way God loves us, totally and unconditionally. This is closely followed by tolerance, honesty, integrity, truthfulness, loyalty, compassion, kindness and simple goodness of heart. We are here to develop the kind of gentleness that is by no means a sign of weakness but of strength of character. Any of these things can only be gained by living through all manner of experiences in the course of a vast number of lifetimes on the Earth plane.

In contrast to this, the material gifts the Universe so generously hands out to all of us are of a temporary nature and have to be handed back at the end of each earthly sojourn. Every child of Earth eventually has to learn to let go of them gracefully and thankfully and returning them in as good condition as possible, when the time for doing so has come. The most important material gift is a new physical body, which the Universe supplies free of charge, each time our education demands another re-entry into physicality. Our daily food and drink, clothes to wear, fuel to keep warm and everything else we find in our environment is a gift from the Creator to us, Its human children of the Earth. This applies especially to the natural world and everything that shares our beautiful planet with us.

In my view, the Christ child, promised of old, the one we and our world have been waiting for, ever since each one of us came away from God, is the spark of the Divine, the magical child that is at present in the process of waking up in ever more human hearts. Guided and protected by our inner teacher, our Highest or God Self, we have been placed in this life so that in the fullness of time each one in their own right finds their way back home into the conscious awareness of their true nature and oneness with God.

Bethlehem, the birthplace of the Christ child, represents the heart and soul of the whole of humankind. And the Star that stands above the stable of this town in which the child is born is a symbolism for the Universal Christ, the Highest and the brightest Light in the whole of Creation, the only born Son/Daughter of the Great Father/Mother of all life. From the spiritual background of earthly life S/He has always been lighting the way for each child of Earth, so that in the end its earthly self becomes of the presence of the Christ child’s seed in its own heart.

I believe that ‘The second coming of Christ’ has always been an allegory for the awakening of the Divine seed from its slumbers in ever more human hearts. That is why in my view those who are hoping that the Master Jesus will take on another physical form to walk in our midst as the long promised World Teacher, shall wait in vain and be disappointed. Even if the Master really had existed and walked in our midst, another appearance during our world’s present evolutionary phase would be undesirable because too many would be distracted from the fact that the World Teacher is an inner exploration. And that requires a journey which every soul eventually has to undertake on its own. Instead of continuing to search for outside influences to show us our way through life, we are here to learn listening to the guidance of our inner guide and teacher, the wise one and living God within. This is the only authority who knows the answer to any kind of question we may ever care to ask.
