Daily Meditation for Christmas Day

Each year on December 25th, Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, and in every church a crib is set up. The child is there, lying on the straw; Mary and Joseph watch over him, and an ass and an ox, too. The ox and ass are never left out! But these two animals are symbols that have to be interpreted; they correspond to processes that take place in human beings. The stable is the physical body and the ox is sexual energy. As for the ass, it represents what tradition calls ‘the old Adam’, self-centred, stubborn and obstinate, but nevertheless a good servant- that is, the lower nature, the personality. Those who decide to work towards the birth of the Christ within, first come into conflict with the forces of their lower nature and sexuality. Those are the forces they must master and put to work for the divine Child. And so it is said that in the stable the ox and ass breathed on the child and warmed him with their breath. When human …

What beings dwell inside us?

Because the human being is seen as a single body, the physical body, they are generally thought to be inhabited by a single entity, and yet daily life continually proves otherwise. Entities of completely different natures take turns in expressing themselves through them, and this is why humans can appear in turn intelligent and stupid, kind and cruel, generous and miserly, modest and conceited, and so on. This mixture of disparate elements making up each human being remains an enigma even for philosophers and psychologists. And yet, it can be very simply explained by the fact that human beings themselves have attracted these different entities in this life or in past lives.

And as far as you are concerned, you must carefully observe yourself, so that you can tell at any time which entity is speaking or acting through you. Just because, at certain times, you are capable of acting with kindness or wisdom, doesn’t mean you are impeccable all the …

Expressing our true, divine nature

You should understand that you are divinities. Yes, divinities, and you live on a higher plane free of limitations, shadows and darkness, sorrow and suffering, in the midst of abundance and joy. Do you know what prevents you from manifesting the splendour of those higher regions here below? Your personality- in other words, your lower nature. Your personality is too unadaptable, too self-centred to capture the subtle messages from those regions… like a radio that cannot pick up all the stations. The waves and vibrations released by Cosmic Intelligence in the higher spheres are swift as lightning, and the matter of the personality is too dense, too hard of hearing to vibrate in tune with them, and so it cannot seize divine messages. They flash by without making an impression and we continue to live in ignorance, far from knowing or experiencing the wonderful joy of our higher Being.
