THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
(Bulletin 1:187-88) The Maha Chohan is speaking:
The CHRISTMAS SPIRIT begins to flow around the first of December, and carries through for seven weeks, until the 12th or 14th of January. The Christ Spirit is an outpouring of love and all the perfect qualities from the angels, Masters, and other Divine Beings, and it pours over Earth like a golden rain of beautiful particles of light. Each particle is like a nine-pointed star, and the entire lower atmosphere of Earth and the bodies of all the people are enveloped in it. It increases in power until Christmas Eve when its potent presence is almost palpably felt by even the coarsest outer minds. To that outpouring of all the Celestial Beings is added a tremendous radiation from the retreats and sanctuaries throughout the world, under the direct guardianship and guidance of the Masters and conscious chelas.
Now will you remember that for the remainder of the Christmas Season I shall expect each of you, my dear ones, to BE the Spirit of Christmas as much as you can, in order that this outpouring will be worthy of carrying MY NAME, MY BENEDICTION and MY LOVE to all mankind, and when we have become the Spirit of Christmas for that period, it will be an easy matter to preserve that radiation permanently.
In my own ashram at Ceylon, at Shamballa, at Luxor, at Kwan Yin’s retreat in China, at Lake Titicaca, at Darjeeling, and many other places, the Christmas wreath is already manifest in the upper atmosphere. This is a constant outpouring of a ring of flame, qualified by a radiation of peace and good will to men. These retreats present a beautiful sight to the spiritual eye, and there is no part of life on planet Earth, from a lump of coal to a singing sparrow, that does not receive a gift of love and blessing from each retreat and sanctuary. Each year this outpouring increases, just as a musical creation builds to a crescendo of blended harmonious sound, and EACH Christmas is more perfect and glorious than the preceding one, because the momentum from the ascended as well as the unascended state is growing constantly.
It is also wise to accept all that the Christmas Season offers, because it is one of the greatest opportunities for soul and spirit growth that the whole year affords, and when one is aware of this potent force, it can be greatly intensified in and around you for the evolution and progress of the spiritual nature. You can INVOKE this radiant outpouring, and as the electro-magnet draws particles of substance from the atmosphere into itself, so can you draw the substance from God’s kingdom, and so feed the evolving spiritual nature of your being. During the Christmas Season, the atmosphere of Earth is literally “stardust,” which the people breathe in, unconsciously filling their inner bodies with a sense of ease, peace and happiness, which they attribute to the “Spirit of Christmas.”
