Merry X-Mas all !

Recommended Posts

Wishing all DaoBummers great holidays, a warm X-mas full of love + sharing a short piece inspired from some writings of Master Ni that I adapted today. It's basically Xmas wishes weaved through the story of 2 famous people that you may know about... But it's not really about them, it's about the spiritual realities that they point too... And the poem belongs to the Integral Way tradition, not any one religion in particular. Enjoy ! 


Jesus & Santa


Jesus stands for the Son Spirit.
His Mother is the Spirit of Universal Nature.
Santa stands for the wishful thinking 
of people who expect gifts from an external force.


Santa is said to live in the North Pole.
He comes from the coldest place
and can give you the warmest of feelings.


Son Spirit lives everywhere.
He's said to be so high, you can't get over him,
So low, you can't get under him,
So wide, you can't get around him.


Gift giver rides in a sleigh.
Son Spirit rides on the wind and walks on the water.


Gift giver comes but once a year
Son Spirit is always by your side.


Gift giver fills your stockings with goodies and snow flakes.
Son Spirit supplies all your deepest needs.


Gift giver can come down your chimney uninvited,
Son Spirit stands at your door and knocks and then enters your heart.


In the mall, you have to stand in line to see the Gift giver.
Son Spirit is as close as the mention of his name.

His real name is an open human heart.


Gift giver lefts you sit on his lap.
Son Spirit lets you rest in his heart.


Gift giver doesn't know your name, all he can say is:
"Hi, little boy or girl, what's your name ?"

Son Spirit knows your name before you were named.


Not only does he know your name,
he knows your address too. 
He knows your history and future
and he even knows how many hairs are on your heads.


Gift giver has a belly like a bowl full of jelly
Son Spirit has a heart full of love.


All gift giver can offer is "Ho ! Ho ! Ho !"
Son Spirit offers health, help and prosperity.


Gift giver says: "You'd better not cry".
Son Spirit says: "cast all your cares on me for I care for you".


Gift giver's little helpers make toys.
Son Spirit makes new life and mends wounded hearts.


Gift giver may make you chuckle but,
Son Spirit gives you joy that is your strength.


Gift giver puts gifts under your tree.
Son Spirit is the life of the tree.


It's obvious there is no comparison between what is man-made
and the real spirituality of the universe.


For this coming year,
let us remember the word evergreen.
Let us put Christ, the Son Spirit back in our lives.
Son Spirit is the evergreen strength
that we need during the cold season of our lives.


May the Lady-in-Blue, the Goddess of the Sky,
bless you with moral strength
and watch over you and your loved ones
in all the seasons of the coming year.


May you recognize Mother Spirit as the nature of the Universe,
and may your Son Spirit produce love for all.
