    Posting this under Friends, as it is not about beliefs and religions. It's about us.

    The Birth of Christ

    There is that which is not a separate deity too small and limited to be present, but rather that which is Presence itself.

    There is that which is not a distant savior whose love is conditional and restricted to faith, but rather is the very presence of unconditional Love itself.

    There is that which is not a creatural spirit who offers peace for acts of faith, but rather that which is Peace itself.

    There is that which is not a god gleamed from a book believed by some to be alive and true, but rather than which is all-embracing Life and Truth itself.

    There is that which is not a spiritual-being who some day may arrive, but rather that which is the living present-moment of Beingness itself.

    There is that which is not a separate lord who is holy and pristine, but rather that which is Purity itself.

    There is that which needs not strive to evolve or requires healing to become whole, but rather that which is the present actuality of Wholeness itself.

    There is that which is not so limited as to believed by just some, but rather that which is so vast as to be the foundational Reality of everyone.

    Though the beliefs and gods the mind creates would have us believing otherwise: you are not broken. All that is needed is to see what is here already, to realize your true and pristine identity.

    Be still, and know -- what really and truly looks out your eyes.

    Have a great break - James.

    You have peace and serenity which abounds with all your posts.

    Thanks for your insight!

    There where God speaks the creatures, there God is. Here in space and time the creature is. People think God has only become a human being there – in his historical incarnation – but that is not so; for God is here – in this very place – just as much incarnate as in a human being long ago. And this is why he has become a human being: that he might give birth to you as his only begotten Son, and as no less.

    Poppers, Thank you again for a very pertinent and well placed post.

    Narkissos, here is another by our dear Meister:

    "God is infinite in his simplicity and simple in his infinity. Therefore he is everywhere and is everywhere complete. He is everywhere on account of his infinity, and is everywhere complete on account of his simplicity. Only God flows into all things, their very essences." [Sermon LW XXIX]

    Truly, it is simply about looking past what we think we are, to what really is.

    Could the Love that all universes arise from be so unconditional as to have already instilled the peace and wholeness we seek, as our own being? This is why it is so important to be still of all beliefs and thoughts of story of self, that what it all appears within be clearly realized.

    As it is Christmas, I thought to place this in the active topics, yet again.

    Thanks JT for bringing this back. Your post is not about hope, not about the future - it is about what's here right now for the seeing. Many thanks for the consistent reminders that what is possible for one is possible for all in this very moment - very appropriate given this particular day.

    Well worth repeating. I don't post much now but but am stirred by the sound of absolute truth free of all religious division and separation from reality.

    Have a great Christmas James.
