Ho Ho Ho Everyone!

This week we examined Jesus’ sharing in Christmas as the End of Sacrifice (T-15.VI) and learned a couple of new, interesting things. First, when Jesus uses the term “Christmas”, he is referring to the light within us that is perceived during our meditations. Which is much different than the concept of Christmas that many of us have learned and practiced throughout the years. Second, he explains how our understanding of the term “sacrifice” has been reversed by the ego thought systems. Most of us strongly believe that our special relationships with others, the careers we’ve established, and the hobbies we pursue will help us to feel safe, loved, and appreciated within the dream. And because of this strong belief, we think it would be a sacrifice to go within and discover the truth of our Inner Light which would reveal to us that everything has already been given to us by God. We also would recognize that what we truly have sacrificed is the awareness of who we really are as the Sons and Daughters of God.

To help us discover this truth within ourselves, this week we are practicing Lesson 303: The holy Christ is born in me today. Let us join together in this practice to discover our inner Christmas star and feel the joy of Christ rising within us this holiday season!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas,

Rev. Paul
