Just as the Wise Men from the East bearing gifts of gold, frankincense,
and myrrh "rejoiced exceedingly with great joy" (Mt. 2: 10) upon finding Jesus, so we can find delight and spiritual fulfillment in finding the newborn Christ in us throughout the year.
Let us consider the divine idea of life, for the newborn Jesus symbolizes this idea. "I am the way, and the truth, and the life" (Jn. 14:6), Jesus said to His disciples toward the end of His earthly ministry. When facing a healing need in ourselves or others, let us celebrate the attribute of life as health, wholeness, vim, and vigor within us with the same jubilance as we celebrate the coming of the Christ life into our world and consciousness at Christmastime.
The gift of life as a spiritual faculty is constant and changeless. We behold
it in the newborn Jesus consciousness at Christmastime and in ourselves and
loved ones all year long. Healing is always brought forth as we celebrate life—the
Christ life within us—here and now.
Affirm: I Concentrate my thoughts on feeling vibrations of love, peace, and
cheer during the holiday season and all year. I am more considerate, polite, and
kind. I smile! I forgive and forget old hurts and past offenses as I celebrate the
birth of the Prince of Peace.
Affirm: I bring a new spirit of goodwill and understanding to my relations all
year long. I remember them, revive them, and indelibly record them in my
consciousness so that they serve me well when my lines of communication need
repair. The Life of God is my life and the life of my loved ones, friends, and
acquaintances right here and right now! And so it is! Amen.
