Easter Message From The Angels



Today I would like to share with you the essence of a White Eagle teaching that appeared in Stella Polaris April/May 2007 under the title ‘An Easter Message From White Eagle given Easter Sunday 1933.’

The spiritual Universe is singing to you and your world this morning. And those whose inner ears have opened and whose hearts are tuned into the higher and highest realities of life can hear the glory of the message that at this time descends from the Heavens onto the Earth, which we are bringing to you. Alas, many in your midst are so sad and distracted by the cares of the material world that they cannot yet hear us. We are glad that ever increasing numbers of you are making good progress on their spiritual pathway.

Through sheer hard work, determination and perseverance, you have come a long way on your evolutionary road, which inevitably is strewn with the trials and tribulations that are necessary to help each one of you to grow ever more Heaven-tall. You have arrived at the point where you can hear our voices calling from the world of light, your true home: ‘Wake up, beloved children of the Earth. A new day is dawning for all those who weep.’

We are bringing you God’s message of a love that is true and eternal. Listen to the joy we, the Heavenly Hosts, are proclaiming on this day of resurrection and awakening. Since time immemorial every Easter Sunday the Universe’s spiritual power has been descending more forcefully than at other times onto the Earth. This is not just a ceremony or a form of worship of your churches.

In 1933, when we gave our original Easter message through the White Eagle group of guides, it was too early to tell you that the life story of Jesus of Nazareth is but a legend that demonstrates to humankind the behaviour of a very old and highly evolved soul, who has prepared himself for his role in the course of countless incarnations, long before your present world came into being. The man has mastered his earthly self and is at one with his Highest Self. By integrating every aspect of his nature and passing every test and initiation that was required of him, he has become a perfect being, one who is whole, holy and healed. He has evolved sufficiently to act as a channel to bring onto the Earth plane the Spirit of the Universal Christ, the third aspect of the Divine, who is all love. This legend of a Christed one was created to demonstrate to your race the pathway each one of you has to walk when their earthly education has run its course.

By now sufficient numbers of you are ready to comprehend the true meaning of the Jesus story, but in 1933 your world was still a very different one. Too few would in those days have understood what we had to say. Besides, too many still needed the comfort of believing that there really was a Master Jesus in our world, who would come to save and redeem them during the days of horror that were yet to come. The time for the revelation that there never was or will be such a being had to wait until the energies were right. This they were when the planet Pluto transited through Sagittarius, the sign of the superconscious mind.

God’s truth is unchangeable. But how much of it we reveal to you at any given moment alters in keeping with the spiritual progress you are making and your ability to understand. That’s why something that is right for you now, may no longer be valid in future years. It has to be that way. We rejoice that sufficient numbers of you by now are capable of grasping that the story of the resurrection of Jesus always was no more than a metaphor that stands for the coming alive of the Christ Spirit. It rises from its death when your earthly self becomes aware of this hidden aspect of its nature.

This is the resurrection that eventually takes place in all human souls, when they slowly begin to free themselves from being trapped in the realities of Earth life and its beliefs. This awakening is quickened by an extra powerful outpouring of the Christ energies onto your planet during the Easter period and especially on Easter Sunday. The Divine spark in all human hearts then unites itself with the sacred fire of Mother Earth and Father Sun and together they bring about the renewal of all life in your world.

Easter is a spiritual rather than a religious period of the year. Mostly it is time for quiet thanksgiving because on the inner level of life the Christ Spirit within each one of you individually and also your whole planet is strengthened and fortified. Hand in hand with us turn your faces towards the great Sun of God and together let us give thanks and praise for the Great Father/Mother’s love, and for the gift of all life and lifeforms who are ever progressing towards more beautiful and perfect expressions.

Our love and special blessings are with you, always.

Happy Easter!

A Celebration Of Spring



Now that the winter’s gone, the Earth hath lost
Her snow-white robes and now no more the frost
Candies the grass or casts an icy cream
Upon the silver lake or crystal stream.

But the warm Sun thaws the benumbed Earth
And makes it tender, gives a sacred birth
To the dead swallow and wakes in hollow tree
The drowsy cuckoo and the bumble-bee.

Now do a choir of chirping minstrels bring
In triumph to the world the youthful spring.
The valleys, hills and woods in rich array
Welcome the coming of the long’d for May.

Now all things smile, only my love doth lower.
Nor hath the scalding noon-day Sun the power
To melt that marble ice, which still doth hold
Her heart congeal’d and makes her pity cold.

The ox, which lately did for shelter fly
Into the stall, doth now securely lie
In open fields. And love no more is made
By the fireside but in the cooler shade.

Amyntas now doth with his Chloris sleep
Under a sycamore and all things keep
Time with the season. Only she doth carry
June in her eyes and in her heart January.

Thomas Carew 1640

Springtime Prayer



For flowers blooming profusely at our feet,
For tender grass, so fresh and sweet,
For the song of birds and humming of bees,
For all things bright and beautiful
We hear and see,
O God and the Angels,
We thank Thee!

For the blue of stream and sky,
For pleasant shade of branches high,
For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
For the beauty of blooming trees,
O Great White Spirit,
Father/Mother of all life and
Thy only born Son/Daughter,
The love and warmth of the Light of all lights,
The Universal Christ,
We give thanks and praise to Thee!

The Wesak Moon



Tomorrow is the Day of the Wesak Moon. To help you prepare yourself for this event, here are some of my reflections on what significance this has for us and our world. After the resurrection and rebirth of Easter at the beginning of spring, the next important event in the astrological/spiritual calendar is the Wesak Moon. The Moon greatly influences all life on the Earth and in the course of the Sun’s transit through the whole zodiac the full Moon takes place in every one of the signs. Each one of them is a highly significant event in its own special way when the time has come for celebrating the Wesak Festival.

Things can only happen on the Earth plane when the time for them is right, i.e. the energies are lined up to allow it. At any given time numerology can be turned into a useful instrument for gaining insights into which energies are influencing us the events of our world and us within them. Let me illustrate it with this year’s Wesak Moon. It is a time when transformative and regenerative energies are flowing with particular strength from the highest levels into every lifeform on our planet, whilst bringing us closer to the Buddha vibrations of love, peace and goodwill.

As you will soon be able to see, it is of particular significance in this context that this year’s Wesak Moon takes place on Monday 30th April 2018. 1) Monday is the day of the Moon, the planetary ruler of Cancer, the sign of the Great Mother of all life. 2) 30 = 3 + 0, i.e. 3 Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, the sign in which humankind’s superconscious faculties are developed. 0 = the circle of Eternity. The thirty connects the energies of the two numbers with each other.

3) April = 4th month and the 4 is ruled by Uranus, co-ruler of Aquarius together with Saturn. 4) Now take the number of the year 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11 one of the Master numbers ruled by Scorpio, the sign of birth, death and rebirth, degeneration and regeneration. The Master numbers should by rights not be added together, but in this case it opens another dimension. 1 + 1 = 2 = the Moon and the Great Mother. 5) 3 + 0 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 18 = 1 + 8 = 9 Mars, ruler of Aries, the sign of all beginnings, and co-ruler of Scorpio, together with Pluto, God of the underworld of the ancients. 6) 1 = the Sun, source of all creativity, planetary ruler of Leo and human hearts, is present.

7) So is 8 = Saturn, co-ruler of Aquarius with Uranus. Saturn guards the gate into the Age of Aquarius, ready to turn from the teacher into the rewarder for those who are keeping the receiver/transmitter station of their earthly minds constantly tuned into the frequencies of the Highest. The Buddha vibrations are part of these energies. Tuning into any part of them assists us with evolving into increasingly powerful channels through which the blessing and healing energies of the Christ Spirit can flow, first into us and from there into our world. And whenever one of us is healing, our whole world heals with us.
Neptune moving through Pisces, its own sign, is adding to the above mentioned positive energies. Neptune in Pisces is a transit that started in February 2011 and will continue until January 2026. The general influence of these energies is an epic shift in the individual and collective consciousness of our world. This kind of transit only takes place about every one hundred and sixty-five years. Each time it signals times for outstanding artistic pursuits, the development of spirituality and the emergence of secret information. The energies a planet in its own sign is particularly strong and allows it to manifest its highest and most positive aspects more easily than at other times.

Until 15th May of this year, Uranus will be moving through Aries, the point of all beginnings. Uranus moved into this sign in March 2011 and its transfer through each sign takes seven years. The changes this brings about affect each one of us personally and also our whole world. Uranus in Aries has been bringing our personal selves forward in revolutionary ways that require the development of new thinking and behaviour patterns. Although Mars, the ruler of Aries, has been the God of war of antiquity, isn’t it the highest time that our world at last turned to making use of the highest and most positive expressions of the Mars energies? Tuning into the Martian energies is beneficial for aspiring healers and lightbringers in their search for assistance with their role as pioneers and wayfinders of the Aquarian Age. Discovering new ways of resolving humankind’s earthly conflicts is our task. May God and the Angels hold our hands and show us how to go about it.

But, let’s return to the Lord Buddha for a moment. He is said to have meditated under a Banyan tree until he found his enlightenment. In the Hindu religion this tree represents the tree of life. As we know by now, the Buddha is as much a legendary figure as the Master Jesus. It is therefore not surprising that the tales about the length of time the Buddha sat in meditation and also the type of tree where this took place vary considerably. The Boddhi tree legend says that after having become enlightened, the Buddha stayed under this tree and also others for seven more weeks of meditating and mastering all his senses. However, the accounts of these seven weeks do not always exactly match in some details such as timing. It seems likely to me that the seven weeks are more of an allegory, a symbolism for an indefinite length of time, similar to the forty days and nights Jesus is said to have spent in the desert, than what the Buddha actually did.

By the way, the same especially powerful outpourings of the Christ energies are flowing into our whole world on a number of other occasions, for example around the time of the Wesak Moon and the Christ Moon, and also the Summer and Winter Solstice or the Vernal and Autumnal Equinoxes. Regardless of whether we live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere, they simultaneously reach and influence all life on our planet equally strongly. The reversal of the seasons in the hemispheres does not make any difference.

If you follow the link to ‘Myths And Legends’ at the end of this chapter, you can read more about the legends of the Lord Buddha and Jesus Christ. I believe that the Buddha story was given to our world as a demonstration of how eventually every human being will find its way into buddhahood. The time of the Wesak Moon is particularly good for meditations and quiet reflections, not on the figure of the Lord Buddha but the purpose of the legend that surrounds him.

From the White Eagle Lodge’s Starlink May 2012: ‘White Eagle tells us that at time of the Wesak Moon there is a natural up-rushing of life from the Earth and as the energies rise, there is a corresponding outpouring from the spiritual spheres. The ascending and descending ones blend and fuse, and an expansion of the spiritual power of the Highest takes place on the Earth plane.’

The following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides received from the White Eagle Lodge for the Wesak Full Moon 2015: ‘At this time of the Buddhist Wesak Festival, we would like to invite you to a special meditation that consciously attunes your whole being to the heightened vibrations of tenderness and love. In earthly life they can be absorbed much more easily at this very special time of the year. The Buddha energies are helpful for those who wish to walk the path of deep compassion. They have the power of raising your own consciousness as well as that of your whole world onto the higher level of existence where they are ruling supreme.

‘In your imagination lift yourself from your present plane of existence to the higher etheric planes with their purer air and finer pulsation or vibration. Come with us to an assembly of wise ones where a vast gathering is taking place to celebrate the event that in earthly life is known as the Buddhist or Wesak festival of peace, compassion and love. Feel how the sweet and holy Buddha love is enveloping and filling your whole being. Your heart expands with love and compassion for every form of life because everybody here is aware that all of them are siblings in the family of the Universal Christ, the Light of all lights, in whom all life is one. Feel your love and compassion for the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms as well as the very substance of Mother Earth. Meditate frequently on this at-one-ment until infinite love and peace until it fills your whole being.’

The Wesak Festival



The ancient ritual of the Wesak Festival is believed to have come to our world through the Masters of the Himalayan Mountains. Alice Bailey, the astrologer, writer and Christian mystic wove Eastern traditions into her work and so helped to popularise this festival in the Western world. For anyone who is also looking at our earthly existence from the spiritual viewpoint, this festival provides an opportunity for finding a better understanding of this special time of the year on the Universal level.

The Wesak Festival consists not merely of one day. It covers the whole of the three month period between the Aries Full Moon – which each year coincides with the Jewish feast of Passover – and the Gemini Full Moon. The day of its occurrence for this year is mentioned in the previous chapter. The full Moon in Taurus is the highest point of the Wesak festival, during which every year God and the Angels are presenting us with opportunities for projecting our personal group and planetary soul petitions for change and healing into the Universe.

It is no a coincidence that the Jewish Passover, the Christian holiday of Easter, the Wesak Festival and the Spring Equinox are based on the same themes: death of the old which is followed by the renewal and rebirth of life’s forces. In our world it takes place every year in springtime. This is in keeping with God’s great plan of life and with Angelic help happens on every level of life. In the Aztec Temples of Mexico, the architecture of Chitzenitza was designed around the day of the Spring Equinox. At sunrise only on that day, the shadow of the serpent – the people’s symbol of the life force, known as Chi, Kundalini or Shefa of other traditions, was seen moving up the temple walls, and the renewed life force pouring itself into the Earth was felt. The symbolic meanings of the resurrection of Easter, the freedom from persecution of Passover, the rites of the renewal of life in spring, all carry with them these energies of a new beginning after the cold and darkness of the winter months.

All manner of spring cleaning actions – inner as well as in the world around us – are most beneficial at this time. Here are a few suggestions:

• Write a petition or prayer to the Highest and put it in a place where it can be left untouched until the same time next year.

• Use one of the dates given to begin a new health practice that appeals to you, maybe a daily workout, yoga or one of the martial arts.

• Gather around you a group of friends for meditation and together pray for the blessing and healing of our world and every form of life it contains.

• Feed the homeless and/or visit a community of elderly people.

• Wesak is a good time for the renewal of old friendships, healing family wounds and making amends with those who have become alienated. Even if the falling out was not your fault, bear in mind that far too many people hand back their physical bodies to Mother Earth without having been reconciled with loved ones they are leaving behind.

• Make time to find out more about a tradition or spiritual practice that has interested you for a long time, but you never got round to studying it. Choose one and stay with it for a while.

• As the energies for new beginnings of all kinds are with us very powerfully at this time of the year, try to make good use of it, if only by going somewhere you have always wanted to see.


May the blessings of this season of rebirth and renewal
be with you and your loved ones,
for the whole of humankind and our world.

White Eagle On The Wesak Moon And Festival



There now follows the essence of several teachings from the White Eagle group of spirit guides. The first one is from ‘The Vibration of Light’ Stella Polaris June/July 2006: ‘There is nothing new under the Sun and anywhere in the whole of Creation that has not happened before. God’s truth was in the beginning and is as valid now as it will be forever. During Mother Earth’s protracted evolutionary process certain cycles of light have come round time and again. The higher esoteric meaning of the word ‘light’ is the wisdom of spiritual understanding. At certain intervals of humankind’s development there comes a fresh release of this kind of light to bring illumination to those who are ready to receive it. As if from great transmitter stations on the higher planes it flows into earthly life in the form of knowledge and wisdom that quickens people’s intelligence and opens their comprehension for the parts of wisdom that, for wise higher reasons, up to that time had to remain hidden from public view. This applies as much to secrets about your environment as your own inner being.’

White Eagle ‘The Festival of Wesak’ Stella Polaris April/May 2006: ‘Can you perceive that every bit of evil and suffering of your world has been caused by what merely on the surface of things appears to be people’s selfishness, though in truth it has been part of the lessons every human being has to take part in during its lifetimes on the Earth. On the deepest innermost level all souls are yearning to be released from this state of their development. The suffering of your world makes souls cry out and increases their yearning that humankind’s homecoming into the awareness of its true nature being speeded up. Every soul knows that the next stage of humankind’s development consists of merging together into one single unit of siblinghood that is connected in friendship with every lifeform.

‘This is how it comes about that, what once started as a journey of spiritual infants descending into the exploration of the lowest and darkest corners of earthly life, eventually ends with each one of you kneeling before the throne of the Highest. You will then have evolved into mature and responsible spiritual adulthood of which the wise ones in charge of you will rightly be proud. Quite likely we shall allow you to join our ranks if you apply for an apprenticeship.

‘Doubtless these things are difficult for you to imagine at present, but try to look the right way, i.e. the higher spiritual one, at everything that has always happened in your world and is doing so in many parts of your world to this day. Each time your soul is born into another lifetime on the Earth, it is nailed to the cross of earthly life, the oldest symbol known to humankind of its existence in physicality. Your whole race, as one entity is also fastened to this cross and each one of you, who is presently taking part in it, has been granted the gift of another lifetime for getting to know God’s true nature and your own, and that everything that has ever taken place on the Earth is an essential part of humankind’s individual and collective evolutionary process, in the material as well as the spiritual sense. You are then ready to share your knowledge with as many as possible of your siblings in the great family of humankind.

‘Whatever you do, refuse to fight against anything. Listen to your inner guidance and go with the flow. That is the best way of learning to live in harmony with God’s laws and all life, and for you there will be no more suffering. The Jesus legend’s crucifixion story provides you with a demonstration of this. If Jesus had been a man, he would not have been present when his physical body was crucified. His spirit and soul would withdraw from the scene and observe it from the perspective of the highest levels of life. That’s how all of you eventually learn how to treat your own problems and troubles, as well as those of your whole world.

‘Resist being crucified and tortured by anything. Instead view your life and everything in it from the perspective of your Highest or God Self. This empowers you to lift yourself above the tests and trials of earthly life that are still in store for you, because of the Karma you once created. Do not forget to look for the learning that is meant to be drawn from every situation. Recognise things for what they truly are, namely personal and collective evolutionary lessons and development phases that will most surely pass. This attitude helps you to rise above and cope with any problem you encounter, for you are then viewing it dispassionately through the eyes of your Highest Self, with whom you are ever more growing into one.

‘Not only every individual spirit and soul but humankind as a whole goes through the various initiations that are depicted by the story of the events of Jesus’ life. Each one of you at its own pace is constantly moving forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life. This happens slowly and by degrees, and at certain points on this journey you reach another initiation. Each one of them expands your consciousness and advances you one more big step towards your final goal of spiritual emancipation. The more your God-likeness increases, the more you are consciously aware of your oneness with your Creator. In similar manner this also happens to your planet and your world as a whole.’

White Eagle in ‘The Pathway of the Sun’: ‘The Wesak Festival is a period of stillness and preparation of mind and heart for the next great spiritual outpouring, the Christ festival, which takes place at the full Moon during the Sun’s transit through Gemini. In a ceremony that is as old as the Earth, a festival is held in the highest spirit realms when the Lord/Lady Christ appears among Its disciples. Disciples are all those who have surrendered their whole being to the Christ Spirit and whose hearts and minds are therefore open to receive It’s blessings. Those whose every cell and atom of their whole being, mind and body, spirit and soul, are healed together and harmoniously functioning as one have evolved into Christed ones in their own right. Each time they are tuning the receiver/transmitter stations of their earthly minds into the Christ vibrations on the highest levels, they are acting as Its channels. The blessing and healing power of the Christ Spirit then flows through them into the whole of Creation. This includes a powerful outpouring of love and light, wisdom and truth for Mother Earth and all her kingdoms. It pours fresh spiritual nourishment into humankind.

‘At certain times every year it is easier for earthlings to respond to and absorb such vibrations. When you do, they speed up and raise the rate of your own emanations. One of these periods is the Wesak festival, when you and we, on the other side of the veil that separates our two worlds, together take part in the outpouring of the Buddha energies. The Buddha is a symbol for the Divine aspect that feels deep compassion for the suffering of the whole of humankind has to endure, individually and collectively, in the course of its earthly education.

‘Because every one of the powers and characteristics that are in God are also in us, the Buddha aspect is also part of every human being, even though in many it has not yet woken from its slumber. The legend surrounding the Buddha tells you that he came to the Earth plane from another world, a heavenly planet – a metaphor for the highest levels of life –, to bring the gifts of wisdom and peace to relieve the suffering that is part of everyone’s earthly education. The Buddha energies, when they are flowing into earthly life, quicken humankind’s desire for wisdom and peace, siblinghood and love towards the whole of Mother Earth’s kingdoms, and in particular the human race.’

The Wesak Full Moon



What has the full Moon to do with the things I told you about in the previous chapters? Physically as well as spiritually, each full Moon reflects the maximum amount of the Sun’s light onto the Earth. Esoterically, light is God’s wisdom and knowledge that brings increased understanding to humankind.

Astrologically, the Moon is the symbol of our earthly personality and its soul that has many and varied experiences, through which it learns and grows in wisdom and understanding. Thus, our soul – the Moon – slowly gathers light, i.e. knowledge and wisdom from the Sun – our Highest Spirit Self – that disperses the darkness of our earthly self’s ignorance. When we share our learning with those around us and so lighten up their darkness, God’s eternal wisdom and truth through us enters some more into our world and in this way grows ever more powerful. The soul is the memory bank in which every bit of knowledge our earthly selves gather is stored.

One Moon cycle takes approx. twenty-nine and a half days and when the Sun and the Moon are in opposition to each other in the sky, a full Moon illuminates our world at night. This is always a very special time for giving thanks for everything that is and ever has been in our lives. It is also a time for finding enlightenment. Now, this does not usually happen through majestic earth-shattering and world-changing flashes of inspiration, like the Buddha is said to have received.

But if you watch out around the time of the full Moon in future, you may notice that you are gradually finding a greater understanding of difficult life situations and relationships. Insights may come to you that will somehow make them more bearable and it is possible to help things along a bit. If there are things in your life that are puzzling you, maybe have been doing for a long time, turn to your inner teacher, the Moon, the Universe – whichever appeals to you most – and ask your questions. The answers are sure to come, sometimes when you least expect them. To show your readiness to receive them, make sure to set aside regular quiet times for quiet reflections, contemplations and meditations.

Because of the extra mighty outflow of the blessing and healing power of the Cosmic Christ around Easter, the Wesak Festival and later the Easter celebrations as close as possible to the full Moon after the vernal equinox. And as in a physical and spiritual sense the full Moon reflects a maximum amount light of the Sun onto the Earth, humankind’s celebrations of all times have always ensured that it is received as fully as possible. Thus, the love of the Sun, who all along has stood for the Son, who in the Christian tradition became known as the only born Son of God, has gradually come increasingly alive in our world. Over the ages, it has been reborn in ever more earthly hearts that, one way or another, were being prepared by the celebrations of whatever faith they may have confessed to and followed, during any one of their many lifetimes.

I find it astonishing how the ancients, just the same as the early Christians, fixed the date of Easter and celebrated it, each tradition in its own style, without having a clue of the higher meaning of their ceremonies that to this day may still be hidden to a great many of its followers. And isn’t it amazing how through the ages humankind was always guided into doing the right things? For example, that we celebrated Easter in spite of not knowing that in truth we were taking part in a great Cosmic event, to which the Universe invites all who understand and are thus ready to consciously take part in the festivities, if they so wish. And what would you say if I told you that most of the insights I am sharing here with you came to me around the time of the full Moon before the vernal equinox? At that time the Sun and Moon are in opposition in the signs Pisces, ruled by Neptune, the enlightener, and Virgo, the healing and teaching sign of the zodiac, ruled by Mercury, the messenger of the Gods.

Some of the ancient pagan rituals and ceremonies date back to the earliest human settlements on the Earth and are still known and practised to this day. Carrying them forward into Christianity and continuing with them, in a somewhat changed format, ensured an uninterrupted flow of the great festival’s true purpose. These blessings of the Universal Christ have always taken place and will continue for as long as there is any need for them anywhere. It is astonishing to be able to see now how all this went on behind the scenes, unencumbered by any of the beliefs that are by now wildly outdated, which at any given time our world was desperately trying to cling on to.

The Christ Moon



The next important date in the spiritual/astrological calendar is the Christ Moon. In 2018, the latest year of updating these files, it will be taking place on Tuesday 29th May. The spiritual outpouring of the Wesak festival has prepared our individual souls as well as that of our world for the special blessings of this event. Every year more of the Divine love and wisdom, power and truth from the highest levels of life are pouring themselves into us and our world. Let’s take a closer look into how it comes about.

During the Sun’s transit through Gemini, the mutable Air sign, the full Moon takes place in Sagittarius, the polar opposite mutable Fire sign. This event is known as the Christ Moon. It is a time when on the highest levels of life special celebrations are taking place in honour of the Universal Christ, the third aspect of the Holy Trinity of the Great Father/Mother of all life, their only born Son/Daughter. The Christ Spirit is the Star of all stars and the light of all lights, whose light and warmth provide sustenance for every lifeform that exists on every level of God’s Creation.

Each one has its origin in the creative ideas of the Father. It is the love and wisdom of the Mother who decides where and when new beings should be brought into manifestations in matter = the Mother. In the whole of Creation the Father/Mother’s creations are sustained and supported by their Son/Daughter, the Christ Spirit. This is the eternal Sun, the great light and firstborn of the great Father/Mother. His spirit is the first spark of creation that breathes life into the creative ideas that are constantly emerging from the co-operation of Father/Mother. Peacefully and harmoniously the three aspects of the Holy Trinity respond to each other, bringing new life into being and maintaining everything that is already in existence and that on all levels of life.

The Sun in the sky above us is one of the many physical manifestations of the Christ Spirit, and so is each one of us. The figure of Jesus is a symbolism for the young God, everybody’s own spirit and Christ nature. We are in earthly life to develop this aspect of our being and that is the only hero and conqueror who can overcome all ills and evils that ever befell us and our world, and to this day continues to do so. The Christ Spirit coming alive and being born in every human heart is humankind’s long promised and awaited saviour and redeemer, the only one who can save and redeem us. This part of us is pure spirit and therefore born through immaculate conception by a virgin, the great Mother of all life. Also being pure spirit, she eternally remains what in earthly terms is known as virginal. Our Divine parents never had anything to do with the sexuality that is required to bring any kind of creature into being in earthly life. The Virgin Maria of the Jesus legend is one of the many metaphors for the Goddess, the feminine aspect and counterpart of the masculine part of the Divine.

Every earthly self contains, if only thus far in seedform, in the deepest innermost core of its being a spark of the greatest light and the Highest Star, the Spirit of the Universal Christ. For a very long time this spark remains dormant and has to wait until the time is right and the earthly has become sufficiently evolved for it to wake from its slumber. The Sleeping Beauty story tells us about this process. Mother Earth is one of God’s and Goddess’s physical manifestations and so is each one of us.
Whether we are as yet aware of it or not, all of us are taking part in the Christ Festival celebrations. In our prayers, meditations and quiet reflections we need to consciously tune the receiver/transmitter station of our earthly minds into the frequencies of the Highest. By joyously opening our hearts and souls in praise of and thanksgiving to the giver of all life, the Universal Christ, we are channels through which Its extra powerful outpourings of blessing and healing energy can flow freely into all earthly life.

Each human soul through its own efforts has to develop their Divine characteristics to their highest potential. Our true parents, Father/Mother Creator, expects from all of us that as soon as we have become sufficiently evolved we freely and willingly do our share of assisting the birth of the Christ Spirit in our world, so that God’s kingdom becomes ever more established on the Earth plane. Through giving of our best at all times and in all situations, our god-like Christ qualities and characteristics develop until we have grown into a Christed one in our own right. For us the long promised saviour and redeemer has appeared. There is only one person who can play this role for us and that is you, me and everybody else. And because what is done for one is done for all, everybody’s own thoughts, words and actions in this way are capable of saving and redeeming us and also our world.

Evolving into a Christed one who is fully at one with our Creator is every human soul’s final destiny. And that is the esoteric higher meaning of the Jesus legend. Although Jesus, the man, was a metaphor that never existed in earthly form, the story of his life was given as a demonstration of how each one of us in the fullness of time has to walk in a true Master’s footsteps, capable of thinking and acting in a masterly fashion. Being one with our Creator does not mean we are going to be completely absorbed into Its energies and losing our individuality and identity. That is not the idea at all. By developing and integrating the characteristics of our Christ Self into our earthly being, we are making them our own. In this process our energies gradually become ever more refined and etherealised. This continues until they are fully compatible with God’s. Nonetheless, we shall always remain the precious and unique being we have been since the moment we emerged as a mere creative idea from the heartmind of God.
