In Christian churches all over the world, the ancient celebrations known as Advent are beginning, in preparation for and in memory of the coming of Jesus into the world at Christmas.
Advent is about anticipation and waiting for a great event. It is about getting ready, and it is about having patience as we wait. The religious remembering happens every year at this time of year, but Advent has a special and different significance for each of us as we await our own great global event that is coming not so far from now.
This is such a special and blessed time: the chaos of our world can distract and deceive us, but if we look beneath the crumbling veneer of confusion and illusion we can touch the love of God and hear the words that tell us all is well. Whether we are Christian believers or not, we can remember that each of us, every awakened soul, is here on Earth in service and for a reason, and that to be here to witness the culmination of the Plan of God is a reward for our commitment, since Earth began, to the Plan and to the Planet, to humanity and to Spirit. To be here at this sacred time is the greatest gift, and as we wait for what will come we must remember too and thank the many great souls that work tirelessly in the higher realms to help us in our endeavours and illuminate the way. We are not alone.
Advent is a reminder that we wait not just for Christmas and all it means but also and most importantly that we await the time when the Christ consciousness returns in fullness and totality to our world. Christmas is about the coming of Christ so long ago: the seeds were sown by Jesus for what is to come, and what lies ahead will be magnificent in its sublimity, for it will be the restoration of Heaven on Earth. That time is not far away now, and that is why for you, perhaps, there is a sense of impatience, uncertainty, and of the imminence of great change. To see the new cycle come alive is what you have longed for, for all your long and sometimes arduous soul journey, and you know in your heart it is near.
You are not just the witness, you have a major role in God’s play. Fear makes you silent, doubt makes you passive. Remember who you are at this time of Advent, and trust, and know that light and love, your light and love, will bring the breath of God, the Christ consciousness, into all that is. It is happening now, and it is inevitable. The waiting is almost over.
