15 Dec Why Christmas Could Be Meaningful
Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river. ~ Lao-tzu
No matter what we think or believe would save us at Christmas time – there is nothing more important than getting that one thing that we all need but never really get in our lifetime. What is that one thing?
Most of us believe it is something from the outer world. We just do not understand the art of manifestation…therefore, we do not teach this to our children nor do we want to learn the art of manifestation, because to do so means we have to give up the moral beliefs we have about “right and wrong” and “good and bad.” We think of manifestation as a matter of a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat! It is not. There is much more to all of this and perhaps, this holiday season, the best Christmas gift I can offer you is an insight that helps you manifest.
The word manifestation means “clear or obvious to the eye or mind.” To come to this state of being we must be very diligent in our inner ways and learn how to sit within ourselves with an inner posture pointed toward not only meditation, but bringing our meditations into our life as a lifestyle. Once we have come to the place in meditation where we can recognize that energy is the light of our life, we will never be in the darkness of confusion again. We will realize the intrinsic goodness of being and never again doubt the merit or worth of the being that we truly are.
Christmas can be a symbol for the INTRINSIC goodness that lives within us all. ~ Siraj
Manifestation is breaking the ideas of assumed personal worth defined as “worthy” or “unworthy” by our spiritual ignorance and moving beyond the moral standards of the ego. This requires the perseverance of flowing within the discipline of an authentic spiritual practice. Life is NOT a philosophy that we can simply adopt. It is not something we can rationalize or argue with. It is a state of being that we enter through the flow of consciousness.
Manifestation means that we bring into this world that which exists upon the “other shore” of being. We live as a form of Life and as the Universe itself. It lives within…in a place few people ever move into, much less are interested in. Hence, we only live for the sake of gratification, which reduces our experiences down to the human cul-de-sac of emotional pain.
Here is the karmic formula for manifestation, listen to it without being robotic: give that which you would like to own and keep for the sake of pride and insecurity! It is that simple. Giving is not impulsive…it is mindful. True giving occurs only as the presence of LOVE is allowed to be a mindful flow of undeniable compassion within us. There must be a profound willingness on the giver’s part to enter into the vast ONENESS of Love, to see the bigger picture of Life and to truly feel the willingness to be generous.
A truly generous person is one who has no argument within themselves about the meaning of generosity. For no moral reason they are just generous without thinking or weighing the consequences of this flow of Love.
When you give to another that which you deem that you need more than what you morally judge the other might deserve, you have made a profound move into the INTRINSIC goodness that Christmas represents.
This Christmas, just give. Love...and give to your friends and family the space to bring forth Love as well. Giving is just that - maturing into the state of compassion so that Love may find its way within us as consciousness.
Manifest from the “other shore” a great goodness that the world needs, but may not recognize. It is all about Love…my dear ones.
