Christmas With Li-Jen Hew, an Offering. Saturday's Inspiration 18
The spiritual seeker or disciple is quintessentially interested in Spirit or Consciousness, in Its myriad forms. Is it the gift of Love, or Light … is it a channelling of good or negative energy? Is it the vibrations of the cosmos or Mother nature?
We ask our selves if there is any goodness, strength or happiness coming from the situation, thing, environment. It is essentially a tangible experience and belief comes later. Whether it is pagan or commercial is secondary to us.
That is why we celebrate Christmas, because it reminds us of the Spirit of Christ - indeed the good will of all great Saviours sent by our Creator. We feel the same when the Hindus celebrate Divali (Diwali) or religious festivals of other faiths.
There is an inherent seeking in man and while he may not see or feel it in cooking a Christmas turkey, he may feel it in a good opera about Christ, or in the innocent joy of his kids or in the love he shares with a partner who believes.
Spirit or Consciousness manifests itself in so many forms! One sees it in love and another sees it in altruism and philanthropy, yet another in wine and drink. The Absolute is the Master Alchemist and it is Its Love or Light that manifests in all.
So for instance, I am of the Christian faith and Li-Jen is of the Buddhist faith, but she sees something in me she likes and I see so much in her I like! Some say that Buddha didn't believe in God and we in Christianity say that Christ is the only way. Nevertheless, note that this does not interfere with the relationship of Li-Jen and I. In fact, we are not even thinking of it!
Still, I'm writing a Hub and trying to show that goodwill, kindness, broadmindedness and Love are far more important than semantics. That being an atheist or of whatever faith is not as half as important as the feeling of beauty and purity in the Heart.
Sweet simplicity and humility are all awesome virtues and our beloved Li-Jen Hew reminds me of them. God bless you, Li-jen and all those you Love. Merry Christmas!
A Song For Li-Jen Hew
Li Jen Hew, Li-Jen Hew, Li-Jen Hew!
Cuteness-smile and turquoise blue.
Simplicity, innocence, charm and Light,
Tenderness, fondness -joy-delight.
Li-Jen, Li-Jen, Li-Jen Hew, Jen!
Heart’s beauty, soul’s bird, sweetness- wren.
Duty, beauty and spiritual flames,
Buddha’s loving daughter, with nectar names.
Li-Jen Hew, Li-Jen Hew, Li-Jen, go!
Radiating, glowing; good energy flow.
Blessed by the sun with goodness-glow,
Within, without, above and below.
A diligence child of God’s own Grace,
And childlike purity, shines on her face.
Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 22nd December, 2018.
Love Lifted me
She lifted me across the path of ignorance,
Sent me Her rays from the craters of the sun.
The moon descended and kissed my Heart,
I was filled with an alcove of perennial Bliss.
Not so long ago, I was steeped in the darkness
Of isolation; knew naught but the penury of darkness,
But now my petty ailments have been erased;
I am filled with the Light of supernal Peace.
O Love, you emerged from vivacious streams of beauty,
Timeless, nameless, within and without form.
You came when my Light had all but diminished,
Filling my vessel with an equator of Grace.
My inner sunbeams are now in surplus;
I swim in an ocean of perennial wine.
Manatita. The Lantern Carrier. 22nd December, 2018
*Awakening The Inner Light*
Wise words from the Master
"The birth of the Child was secrecy itself. But His Birthday is as illumining as the Sun, as energising as nectar. Christmas is the birth of Promise, the link between Heaven with Earth...
Christmas reveals to us a limitless ocean of Universal Joy. The waves of the suffering world dare not declare their existence..."
Do you like Christmas?
Do you like Christmas?
