Christmas is no time to be "merry". Save your merriment for lesser occasions. Christmas celebrates the taking of human form of one of the most brilliant facets of the divine conciousness which though omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient took human form so that you and I could experience God consciousness. Jesus is the human manifestation of mankind's yearning to meet God face to face, untramelled by time and space. He is the proclaimation of the universal truth that God made man in His own image, to live in his midst as friend, guide and divine companion. Celebrate the faith He
must have had in you take human
form in your world, to share your joys and sorrows, your pleasures and pains your successes and failures.
So put down your glasses, stop being merely "merry" and open your hearts to Him in deep love and peace nd thank Him for showing you the Royal Pathway to God.
BABA'S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE (1983) : "What is Christmas? It should be a time of divine awakening, a time when people turn their thoughts away from everyday problems and think of the divine. The spirit of the divine is everywhere and you yourself are part of it . Learn to live in that divine state. Experience the omnipresence of the Lord.Let Christmas be a time of awakening for each one of you
