This year we get to be with Christmas for a little bit longer. We get to turn it around a few more times like a gemstone – looking at all the hewn angles.
The Incarnation, which is
for popular Christianity synonymous
with the historical birth and earthly life of Christ, is for the mystic
not only this
but also a perpetual
Cosmic and personal process.
It is an everlasting bringing forth,
in the universe and alsoin the individual ascending soul,
of the divine and perfect Life,
the pure character of God.
