In the great brilliance of the burst of light celebrated as the Christ mass the darkness without may beckon the flame within to sing of new beginnings Then with the building bricks of the Spirit solidly placed upon the foundation of God’s heart and transcendentally mounting into the blue of His Will the soul shall rise as a tower of strength, facing all outer conditions and saying to them: “If you are not of God, you have no power!”—for only God can bring eternal life into the human heart. And as I utter these words I envision millions among you reading my message and cherishing my Spirit as kindred to your own.
One of the great tragedies of human existence is the lack of the miracle of belief, the lack of faith in the things of the Spirit which are all around you as the best gifts of God. For these you ought to be thankful always, and your thanks should be a bouquet of fragrant thoughts offered unto God….To forego the opportunity of receiving Him in the person of the Christ is to delete from your consciousness one of the most glorious facets of individuality—the opportunity of giving….
I see clearly a vision of Christ-intent for a world that slumbers ‘neath the snows, not yet knowing the fullness of its own purpose….Let the God within awaken man, let Him show the world the error of their ways, let Him show the individual the splendor of His strength, let Him reveal Himself. You who need Him more than you know, listen to Him. Develop the habit of looking for Him behind the face of outer manifestation.
In all of the scenes and thoughts of your heart, myriad and tumbling, the way of His loveliness is the hope of the world. The miracle of His coming into the life of the individual is a joy to behold. It is almost to be likened to a seed sown in the heart of the earth that, nourished and watered, presses upward toward the light. It is the strength born of devotion to His love that seems to be lost and fading in man….
The destiny of man will be merged into the completeness of the grace of the Universal Christ Child, nestling in every mother’s arms as her own babe and lodging in every father’s heart as the divine seed.-Mary: Pearls of Wisdom 11:50
The initiation of all wise or noble things comes and must come from individuals, generally at first from some one individual. The honor and glory of the average man is that he is capable of following that initiative; that he can respond internally to wise and noble things, and be led to them with his eyes open.S. Mill: On Liberty, 1859
