Silver Birch
    Silver Birch

It is a practice among those of us who belong to certain groups to retire to the inner spheres at two festivals which long pre-date your Christian counterparts, Christmas and Easter. These, as you know, have their origin in the celebrations in ancient times of the passage of the sun as it appeared to those who saw in its appearance, its lengthening and shortening, the symbols of divine activity.

When the sun attained its full glory it was regarded as the period of resurrection, when nature sang its paean of praise and displayed its profound beauty for all to see. That which had been sown was reaped in its splendour of growth.

Part sun played
Correspondingly there was the winter solstice when, after the high noon of summer, there came the drooping as nature prepared and husbanded itself, fertilising and making ready all growth which had to appear when the cycle had achieved completion.

So at Christmas you had the birth of the 
sun, the end of the long cycle when there arose the first sign that new life was being born into your earthly world. Those times had a significance to us because then we received the greatest communion from the Great Spirit. You do 
not yet understand very much about the influence 
of the sun.

Seen as symbol
At these times, we held for many days what you call séances. We received at those festivals much inspiration. So, when it comes again to the time which all of us regarded as the most important in our lives, we gather together and celebrate with those who are our own. This started with the influence of the sun, but that was only a symbol.

There is an influence from all life to other life, from all matter to other matter, and from all planets to other planets. This time is chosen because all of us are associated with races whose religions were founded upon the laws of nature.

To us, the festival of the birth of the sun was the greatest of all because it represented the beginning of a new era. It is the end of the cycle, and a new one begins.

Christmas Tree and roaring fire   

To take counsel

Because these festivals were held in the world of matter, they are celebrated in the world of spirit. A spiritual meaning has now come out of them. Instead of celebrating the dawn of the new life, we now use it to withdraw from the world of matter to get new power of the spirit so that we can bring new light to your world. And because those of us who are associated in this task belong to more ancient races than your Western civilisation, we utilise these festivals as opportunities for withdrawing to the inner spheres where we belong.

We take counsel, we share experiences, we learn how far we have succeeded or failed. New plans are discussed. We meet those who sent us on our mission. Among them is the great figure of the Nazarene, who is still imbued with the task of teaching humanity the age-old truth enshrined in all that we seek to do, that love is the fulfilling of the law.

I wish that you could see and hear the Nazarene and feel that great love as he encourages us in our missions, as he expresses his knowledge of all that has been done and urges us to go forward with new strength, new hope, new vision and new purpose.

He is not the Nazarene of the churches, exalted into a deified state, but a great 
spirit who strives still to serve through many instruments.

For a short time I am in the spheres where I now belong, to feel once again that vitalising power of the spirit, so invigorating in its strength, so beautiful in its fullness, making you realise what life is when you are able to experience it in the higher realms of the spirit. 
I speak with all humility and with no pride at all.

“What a pity that the birthday of the ‘Prince of Peace’ is commemorated by such a dreadful slaughter; the blood of innocent creatures has to flow in order to commemorate peace.”
Love is basis

How can I describe spiritual exaltation in words? How can I describe the joy of meeting beings who radiate the great light of the Great Spirit, who are full of wisdom and understanding, mercy and tenderness, who know all before you convey it, who are aware of your innermost thoughts, who see the workings of your mind, who know of your successes and failures? The great message of love, which has characterised all religions, and which was epitomised in the teaching of the Nazarene, is still the one we proclaim in the name of the Great Spirit who is the lord of all life, the infinite creator.

Thus, returned to our true spiritual state, we experience some of the lustre, joy, radiance, beauty, richness, nobility and grandeur which are our natural environment. We bathe in it, rejoice in it and capture the glories that were our normal expression. That is our celebration.

Then, counselled, enthused, refreshed, invigorated, recharged and revived, we return to your cold, grey, dank, clammy, dark world to continue the task of piercing its fogs and mists, striving to shine through with the light of truth which can guide and point the way for many weary travellers.

Some of the spirit of love is expressed in your world at this Christmas time. It takes the form of geniality and generosity, the desire to give. It is to be seen in the remembering of old friends, the cementing of old ties, the bringing together of those who have parted and the resolution to forget old enmities.

Needless sacrifice of dumb creatures
Alas that it should be preceded by the great holocaust and bloodshed, when so many needless sacrifices are made of some of the Great Spirit's dumb creatures. What a pity that the birthday of the ‘Prince of Peace' is commemorated by such a dreadful slaughter; the blood of innocent creatures has to flow in order to commemorate peace. This is the crucifixion of your world, celebrating peace by making war on innocent creatures.

One day, love, compassion, mercy and responsibility will guide man who has dominion over the lesser creation which look to him for help. When these qualities are expressed in human life, bloodshed, cruelty and needless horrible experiments which are wreaked on these innocent creatures will cease. The wolf will lie down with the lamb because there will be peace on earth.
