Oneness Ministry

We are One

Merry Christ-Mas!

This is a reposting of a blog from 2012, but when you get something right it is timeless.  Please take some time alone this season and sit in silence while focusing on all the blessing of the year, make a list if you feel so moved.  Have a very Merry Christ-Mas!

Our favorite time of year is upon us again, especially if you are a youngster or still feel so.  It is a time of giving, sharing, and togetherness.  This does not require family, but it does require a willing to give of self.  It is easy to find those who need love through simple acknowledgement and/or attention.  A small gift of time or material substance is all it takes to let them know they are important.  To move beyond this point let us look deeper to the heart of the holiday.

This is the time of year when we are reminded of Christ consciousness and its relationship to our lives.  The very word itself is an indication of what this season is all about.  Christ in metaphysical terms means centered or anointed one.  The word “mas” in Spanish means “more”.   So thus we have it in simple terms.  This season is about getting more centered and the word “anoint” means to dedicate to the service of God or in other words, to make sacred and whole.

The ceremony (Christmas eve/Christmas morning) is a way of connecting to Spirit and setting intentions.  It is an acknowledgment of Oneness with God (Great Spirit, Universal Oneness, Goddess, etc).  The symbology is important this season because when you share gifts it is a way of saying to the recipient, “you are sacred to me”.  On Christmas morning you are anointing those you love with gifts.  The actual item is far less important than the Loving intention (Christ consciousness) that goes into the gift.  The gift is in the giving!

When thought of in this manner the Spirit of Christ Mas is brought to life!  This year when you are sitting around the tree (yule log, menorah, or whatever) and sharing gifts, share also the Christ Consciousness.  In short, move outside yourself (ego mind) and connect with the One (God) which is present in each person in your life.

This is how Santa delivers millions of presents all in one night!  Through Christ Consciousness the Spirit works through each of us!! May you be Blessed this season 😉

Silent Night

The truest gift of Christmas is the opportunity to enjoy The Spirit within the Silence.  Connection with Source energy is something we all instinctually know how to do.  It is not something you can teach, so this message is a reminder and tribute to this fantastic experience that comes but once a year,… unless you claim it every day.

Thinking back over my last 50 Christmas’s one experience stands out above all the rest.  Please join me here as we revisit this moment of deep unbridled Joy.  The traditions of Christmas are many and one in particular touches my heart each year, the Christmas tree.  It is a symbol of reverence to all life and has always played the center piece at Christmas throughout my life.  No matter where I am or what the circumstances are, I manage to get a few minutes alone with the Christmas tree.

The Christmas tree symbolizes eternal life in its evergreen nature and green color.  The triangle shape denotes the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  The tree points up and has a star at the top to denote the Highest Power.  We wrap the tree in light symbolizing the Light that fills each of us and connects us to Heaven.  The gifts we place underneath are acts of charity and love.  The ornaments we place on the tree provide our individual or ego touch, an expression of personality!

As a child I would lie on the living room carpet under the tree before the gifts were added and marvel at the lights and simply feel the energy flowing through this gateway to Heaven.  As I ponder this experience, the smell of the pine scent takes me back to a simpler time when people were still living in nature.  The lights of the tree are magical and colorful each representing a color of the rainbow and the diversity on earth.  It is a reminder that we are all of One Light.

The best part of the whole experience is doing this early in the morning when everyone else is asleep and the silence is pervasive.  This is when the Spirit within the Silence is easiest to hear.  Of course, it is a feeling more than a sound.  How does one hear silence?  Lying there, looking up, absorbing the beauty, and listening…

Amid this season of hustle and bustle, please remember to connect with this Silence as it is indeed the reason for the season!  Do it daily and Christ Mas never ends ♥
