Reflections On The Birth Of A Child

When A Child Is Born

When A Child Is Born - Rays of Wisdom - Words of Wisdom & Prayers for Christmas, New Year & Spring

A ray of hope flickers through the sky,
A tiny star lights up, way up high.
All across the land dawns a brand new morn’.
This comes to pass, when a child is born.

A silent wish sails the seven seas.
The winds of change whisper in the trees,
And the walls of doubt crumble fast and torn.
This comes to pass, when a child is born.

A rosy hue settles all around.
You’ve got the feel you’re on solid ground.
For a spell or two no-one seems forlorn.
This comes to pass, when a child is born.

And all this happens, because the world is waiting,
Waiting for one child. Black, white, yellow?
No-one knows.
But a child that’ll grow up and change tears to laughter,
Hate to love, war to peace and everyone to everyone’s neighbour
And misery and suffering will be words
That will be forgotten forever.

It’s all a dream and illusion now,
It must come true, sometime soon somehow.
All across the land dawns a brand-new morn’.
This comes to pass, when a child is born.

To my mind, this song is about every human spirit and soul who is re-entering earthly life to partake in another spell of learning and growing from the experiences and opportunities that are only on offer in this world. That’s why I suggest a small change from: ‘This comes to pass, when a child is born,’ to: ‘This comes to pass, each time a child is born.’

I believe that the long promised child our world has been waiting for never meant another appearance of the Master Jesus. God and the Angels created him as a symbol for the higher Christ or God nature of every human being and for wise higher reasons presented him to us in the form of a new legend. Every one of Jesus tale’s participants only ever existed as a thoughtform that in due course, when it has served its purpose, will gradually be removed from the consciousness of our world.

Whenever a new spirit is first released into earthly life, a spark of the Christ Spirit is deeply implanted in its heart and soul where it slumbers during the initial stage of our earthly development. This part of our being – independent of what phase of development we have reached at that moment – receives the special blessing of an especially powerful outpouring of the Christ love that flows into everything in our world at Christmas from the Highest levels of life. The second coming of the Christ is a metaphor for this process which eventually takes places in each individual soul and simultaneously the collective soul of our whole world.

Eventually there comes the moment when our own Christ characteristics begin to unfold. With this the desires of the small earthly self gradually shrink into the background of our consciousness until they have gone from us completely. This process, however, does not change anyone into a reincarnation of Jesus, for the simple reason that he never existed in earthly life. The best any one of us can do is walk in the footsteps of a spiritual Master as depicted in the Jesus legend. There is nothing wrong and everything right with following the Master’s example and striving to be as good and kind, tolerant and loving to everybody the way the story describes him. Yet, we shall always remain the same individual being with the earthly personality that could have taken us thousands of lifetimes to develop.

The newly born in the manger is an allegory for the first stirrings of the Divine characteristics. During the whole of everyone’s evolutionary odyssey from fool to wise one, sinner to saint, they have always been waiting to come alive. The realisation that, when the time is right, this happens for everybody adds a whole new dimension to our present existence. When they are at last capable of grasping this, even the least devout ones among us are likely to humbly bend their knees with love and devotion before the Holy child in everybody, including themselves, and its true parents, the Great Father/Mother of all life and their only born Son/Daughter, the Universal Christ.
