Christmas which is celebrated as the day of the birth of Christ is seen by many of us as an annual festival that encompasses family & social Get-togethers, Christmas tree, Decorations, Feasting and Exchanging gifts.
How many of us are aware of the fact that Christmas also symbolizes a very deeply significant truth of spiritual life?
Jesus Christ was born at a time when ignorance, superstition, greed, hatred and hypocrisy prevailed. Purity was forgotten and morality was neglected. There was no space for any thoughts of God, Divinity, or higher spiritual life.
In such a scenario, living a life of lust, anger, greed, deluded attachment, pride and jealousy tends to become the norm. We can all identify with that in the world we are living in today. How does one bring about a transformation, and pave the way for a life of authenticity, integrity, love, togetherness, oneness and sheer joy?
The fact that Jesus was born unknown to the world and in the obscurity of darkness in a stable signifies that we need to go inwards to the parts of us often unknown to even ourselves, and confront our own perceived darkness, our shadow selves, while imbibing the quality of true humility which is one of the most indispensable fundamentals for our awakening.
Christ-spirit, which is the spirit of love and purity, needs to be evoked within our hearts and allowed to express itself replacing the darkness with light. If each one of us does that, it will set a chain reaction of light beginning to shine brightly where darkness has been so far. That is the real Christmas.
What are we waiting for then?
Someone from outside will not and cannot come and do it for us. Only we can. Together you and I can...
Let us all make it a truly MERRY CHRISTMAS
