Shepparton Interfaith Network sends greetings of this Christmas Day to all peoples of all faiths – in the Goulburn Valley, nay, in Victoria, Australia, world-wide. Covid 19 aside (it causes separation on this feast day) we offer the message of the angels: Glory to God in the Highest – may all who live be the Glory of God, and may the Angels of the Christ Morn bring peace and good will to all Men, Women and Child. And those who suffer the Covid 19. Be blessed, this Christ Morn. Here, we bring you the writings of Paramahansa Yogananda on A Cradle for the Christ of Everywhere.
Every day, every hour, every golden second, Christ has been knocking… Now, in this august sacred dawn, Christ is especially coming in answer to your inner call, to awaken his Christ Consciousness Omnipresence within you.
This Christ of Everywhere is sleeping in the breast of Eternity; He loves to take new birth at any time, anywhere, especially in the warmth of your true affection. Though the Infinite Christ is present in every speck of space as the splendour of ever new wisdom and creative expression, you can never see Him unless He chooses to be seen in the cradle of your unceasing devotion. The cozy crib of your heart has for a very long time been small, holding self-love alone; now you must make it enormous, so that social, national, international, and Cosmic Christ-love may be born there and become One Love.
The Infinite Christ is everywhere; worship His nativity in Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Moslem, Jewish, and other true religious temples. Every expression of Truth flows from the All-pervading Christ perception, so learn to worship that sacred Universal Intelligence in every pure religion, belief, and teaching. Since the Cosmic Christ dreamed into existence the divine being that is man, you should celebrate the birth of Christ in your newly awakened equal love for every nationality and race.
