Seth on Christmas:

All of the gods in your myths die and are rewarded - from the time of your ancient memory, and through the ages of the memory of your race. So it is simply said again and again, in terms that you understand, according to the time in which you think you live: That you are born again and again, and the trials of the gods are your own, and so are their triumphs and their joys.

The symbols used are also colored by the times, and they are personified, so winter and the cold that sweeps across the earth are used to symbolize the death of the soul. Not a death, however, but transformation. If you understood your myths, you could use them effectively. When you think that they are reality, however, they can entrap you.

You are the stories that the Soul tells.

You are your own stories, and you create your ideas of God according to your interpretation of greater realities that you understand and do not understand. You are catching up with your own understanding, but as soon as you understand, there is more to learn because creativity is never still and never done and never finished.

In other worlds there are other Christmas tales, each with their own story and rhyme.

But none of them denies the intense and eternal NOW which is being forever created and in which you have your quite natural existence.

And none of it denies the joyful vitality that is your own, neither the bewilderment in your eye, nor the pleasure in yours. All of this is meant to illuminate the joy and ease of your own being, and meant to generate within you, if you will forgive me, that old Ho-Ho-Ho - the vitality and the laughter and the joy that is your being.

If you understood thoroughly what I am trying to say to you, you would be laughing with me and enjoying your own grizzly beard and hair, and, as you looked around at each other, you would see yourselves as all ages, reborn time and time again and with your identity alive within you now.

The truth is not something apart from you. You each are truth, speaking and living in physical form.

Seth Speaks is within you and not in a book. You are the book. Then joyfully listen to what your feelings tell you. Your thoughts and your feelings are both natural and both yours.

And your joy is within you, Christmas or non-Christmas, Santa Claus or no Santa Claus, December 25 or the 4th of July. Your atoms and molecules shout with the joy of their own being; listen to them.

Feel within their fleshy substance your own spirituality.

Look at the Christmas tree; your cells and molecules shine a million times more brightly. Your eyes glitter with far greater light. You are love in corporeal form.

You do not have to look for it or wonder where to find it or give it in packages with bright ribbon. You are packages with bright ribbon.

Christmas is now and was yesterday and will be tomorrow. It is in you, in Buddha, in Pan, in Christ, in Mohammad, in an ant and in a frog, and in your eyes and with you, each of you.

You are each, then, Christmas.

You shine and glitter whether or not you know it. You shout 'Merry Christmas' even when you cry.

You cannot deny your own vitality or being.

Let the vitality and energy, therefore, ring out through your own knowledge. Let it awaken within you the knowledge of your being.

Dance through your own molecules and scatter your own petals!

~ Seth (Jane Roberts), ESP class, 12/19/1972.
