Christmas, the Play of Universal Emotion. Monday's Inspiration 59 to Rochelle Ann De Zoysa (RDsparrowriter)

Updated on December 23, 2019

Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

"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 and Earth..." - Sri Chinmoy


When a new dawn comes, Mother Earth is glorified and blessed by Father Paradise. A season of good will permeates the atmosphere, nourished and influenced by planetary signs. As humans, we feel it and share in its joy. This ever-increasing newness, growth, vision and a dynamic upward surge, is replenished by the heavens, by our own lives of inner beauty and outer hopes, dreams and vision.

"This is the day that unites here and far. This is the day that awakens the best in us, within and without. This is the day of Eternal Bliss, from which the past, present and future derive much significance of Existence. Christmas reveals to us a limitless ocean of Universal Joy. The waves of the suffering world dare not declare their existence..." - Sri Chinmoy

There is a bringing together of Silent Night, of O Holy Night, of stillness and universal friendship … of Oneness and of Peace. There is glad tidings of great Joy and our shadows take a temporary or permanent dive, according to the Will and Consciousness of the Higher Authority.


Wisdom from the Master

" … It is not under the branches, but at the foot of the tree that one gets full protection. Therefore human souls, wherever they may be scattered, return to their families, in order to breathe in serenely, the Universal Harmony and Peace on Christmas day." - Sri Chinmoy

Love is synonymous with Light and Light with Love. The Bethlehem star represented Light and pointed the way to a supreme child of Light - the baby Jesus. God is Light and Light is Love - a manifestation of Light in this universal Arena.

I see this good will in all around me, in the Christmas shoppers, the family circle, the revelry and camaraderie … the quiet peacefulness that descends on us on Christmas Day and New Years dawn. The inspirational carols!

Christmas is a season of good will. Those who are receptive, feel that good will and even others feel it in the bonuses, the staff parties, the extra time off-work … the time to re-unite with siblings and make up with lost but dear ones.

Just over 3 hours ago, I was chatting to an Indian man who is not even Christian! He was so happy! I discovered that his reason for being happy was because he was able to connect with all his brothers and sisters on What's App.

He said that they were fighting for years! Somehow, he was able to bring them together this Christmas and so today is the happiest day of his life. Isn't this wonderful! A victory for him but a divine victory for the Supreme!

God, the Absolute, is the Light of this world. He has many favourite children and The Christ, is one of His favourite darlings. Not that He is not impartial, but the Father loves best all those who are in harmony with His Will and Consciousness … all those who seek to lighten His burden - as God-lovers and seekers everywhere are trying to do - and for this He remains 'Eternal Gratitude - His middle name.'


The Morning's Prayer by Sri Chinmoy

My Lord Beloved Supreme, with every breath of my Heart,

I enter into Your Heart, to love You only, in Your own way.

My Lord Beloved Supreme, with every breath of my Heart,

I sit at Your feet, to need you only, in Your own way

My Lord Beloved Supreme, with every breath of my Heart,

I look at Your eyes, to fulfill You only, in Your own way." - Sri Chinmoy

Thoughts For Today

We are all His … East, West, below and above. The Light Divine shines in all and each soul is divine. We all have the potential - given by the Absolute - to manifest and glorify It's Light. Indeed, we are here only for this purpose.

We travel, as Sojourners of the Way, learning life's lessons through a seeming darkness, which is nothing other than a lesser form of Light, in so far as it teaches us, consciously or unconsciously, taking us Home … to re-discover our true nature.

"Good music is naught but the symphony of the Soul Supreme, manifesting Itself in myriad souls; expressing Its divinity … playing its own game of Love, Light … Silence." - Manatita

    My dear brother, your hub is an excellent Christmas gift to all people! Sri Chinmoy's wisdom, derived by his higher Love and Gnosis, is always helpful. Christmas is not just another opportunity for a feast; it is an everyday Spiritual state. Let us be humble like the manger, grateful as the shepherds, lightful as the Star, wise as the magi, generous as an animal, devoted as Joseph, and a personification of Love like Mary. Let us be the Christmas that world needs.

    Much Love from your family here in Greece!
