"Certainly, there will be much resistance to these words, to this understanding. People will react. They will reject it. They will complain. They will accuse it of being false. They will say it comes from demons. They will say it is deceptive. They will project all of their fears upon it. They will project all of their confusion upon it. They will project their desire for separation upon it. They will defend their ideas. They will defend their beliefs. They will defend their traditions. They will be indignant. They will be outraged. They will call God’s Messenger a devil. They will say he is the Antichrist. They will say that he is the Dark Lord. They will say all kinds of ridiculous things, afraid, unable to respond. And it is their ambivalence regarding God that is the core problem."

"At the time Christianity was introduced, it was revolutionary. Its emphasis was to spread its message amoungst nations and amongst different peoples. It was not only meant for one grouip or one locale. It was not only meant for one tribe or one naiton. Its emphasis was to bridge the gaps between different cultures and different nations, to bond pepole together through a higher association in life and to create a greater foundation for recognition, communication and cooperation. Humanity has been struggling with this challenge ever since, but much progress has been made."

  • The Meaning of Christmas (Dec. 23, 1994)

"The religions that have been established in [the name of Christ] must receive the Grace that illuminated his life and that transformed his activity."

  • The Meaning of Christmas (Dec. 23, 1994)

Long Quotes

"[Christ's] demonstration, then, though greatly misunderstood and misappropriated, remains today as a symbol of the emergence of Knowledge within the individual. Though Jesus has been idealized, though his life has been made to be unique and un-matched by any other life, though he has been placed on a pedestal above and beyond every other person, in truth, his life represents the emergence of Knowledge within the individual. This emergence is possible for you."

  • The Meaning of Christmas (Dec. 23, 1994)

"The Mass of Christ is a celebration of Divine relationship. Christ is the person united with the Divine. Christ is the individual united with the Unseen Ones, who are the Angelic Forces of the Divine. This is the meaning of the Mass of Christ—Christmas. It is not the glorification of an individual. It is the recognition of real relationship—the relationship of the person with Knowledge within themselves, their relationship and intrinsic bond to the Unseen Ones, their duty to humanity and their affinity with life. This is the celebration of relationship. This is the meaning of Christhood. This is the Mass of Christ."

  • The Meaning of Christmas (Dec. 23, 1994)

"When you are in doubt, when you are uncertain and when the way becomes inexplicable and indecipherable, you will remember him because he kept traveling, and he met and found his destination. And you will thank him because he left a legacy for you through his demonstration and through his sacrifice and difficulty. He has kept Knowledge alive in the world, as have many others, for he was not alone, and his contribution has been kept alive in the minds and hearts of many."
