★Christmas to all my friends★
Christmas and New Year's
This blessed day of 25th December, 1971, is celebrated in the sweet remembrance of Christ, when Hemanifested at the human pole of Jesus for the guidance of the child humanity. Hewas the Light of the world as long as he was in the world (John 9: 5). He gaveLight of Life to whomsoever came in contact with Him.
Each of the prophetsand messiahs is sent into the world who carries on His work of uniting souls toGod. The law of supply and demand is always working in nature. There is food forthe hungry and water for the thirsty; where there is fire, oxygen of its owncomes to its aid. When He fulfills His mission, He is recalled, gathered up andpasses away the scene of His activity on earth plane.
Those in search ofGod, are ultimately led by the God-Power to the feet of the Master-Saint--the 'Word made flesh'—for the journey back to God. "No man can come to meexcept his Father which has sent me draws him; and I will raise him on the lastday." (John 5:41) "Last day" means the last day of the earthly life, when the sensory currents are withdrawn from the body.
You are taught to riseabove body-consciousness by daily spiritual practices and meet the Masterwithin. It is only when the outward man perishes, that the inward man (spirit) is renewed.
"For whosoeverwill save his life shall lose it; but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it." (Luke 9:24 & 17:37)
It is a pity that wehave made wonderful progress in all walks of life but woefully lackself-knowledge and God-knowledge."What does it profit a man if he gainsthe possession of the whole world and losses his own soul ?"
We are fortunate tohave the man body, which is the highest in all creation, in which we can knowourselves and develop God-consciousness. The word 'religion' is derived from aLatin word 'Ligare' and with its derivative ligamant, which means to bind. 'Re' denotes 'again', so it denotes to bind back the soul to God, which is a commonheritage of mankind.
Time and tide wait forno man. We should do our utmost to achieve the object before us. And my bestwishes are with each one of you.
