Hanukkah and now Christmas, what a wonderful time of the year it is—a time of rededicating a holy temple and then celebrating a joyous occasion, the special birth of a human being who became the ultimate role model for how humans could live their lives on Earth. And though many of us are still trying to understand more about our creator and more about our universe every day; with the help of Jesus, or Jeshua, long ago, we were able to move past the concept of many Gods to the more logical concept of one. Then as time progressed, we scientifically learned more about those things we used to fear and worship, i.e., fire, the Sun. Long ago, we were introduced to the concept that God’s kingdom is within us which gave us a new, much greater perspective on life. For this meant if the kingdom of heaven was within us, we could not be separate from this omnipotent power many of us call God. We too learned not to judge, for not one of us is perfect; neither do we always make the better choice. Though, many of us are still casting our stones on a daily basis. But one of the greatest gifts that Jesus gave us all was not only teaching us the art of ultimate forgiveness but showing us by example. When he was condemned and nailed to a cross, he said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
From Loved Promised, “The art of forgiveness is learned by the soul, manifested in human form, as a useful tool and positive emotion that brings us back in alignment with who and what we really are—pure love in motion. When the majority of our society can learn the art of forgiveness, then and only then, we can raise the vibration of this planet. When we learn that condemnation is born from the ego out of fear that keeps us from seeing the reality in ourselves, we will awaken and won’t feel a need to condemn anymore.”
Thank you Jesus, as we celebrate your birth, for bringing a new understanding to all of mankind and for teaching us this valuable lesson in life.
Indeed, it is a time to honor and celebrate and, more over, to keep this beautiful emotion of gratitude all throughout the year. For this feeling of gratitude attracts more things in our life to be grateful for!
