It is already early December, nearing Christmas, the celebrated birth of the man for whom Christianity is known and adopted. All of this is codified in the book known as The Bible.
Of course the Bible chronicles interactions with God and Jesus from the standpoint of those who wrote the book and finalized it. Their consciousness, having lost the systematic knowledge and critical component of transcendence, did the best that they could to illustrate the genesis, values, and righteousness of Christianity, from the perspective of waking state.
A kind analogy would be allowing someone to ride in a car, first insisting that they always keep their eyes closed. 🙂 Not only can they not see where they are headed, they must make up or adopt a story about how they arrived at any destination. Our ego specializes in this function, to interpret and establish a context, an identity in response to stimulus, complete or not.
Regarding Jesus Christ’s ‘virgin’ birth, this is the only way the latter followers of Christianity, having lost the practical value of Totality, could attempt explanation of a person first taking a body through the obvious physical instrument of birth, and then being reborn, or awakened to their immortal, infinite nature, while retaining their physical body.
To explain this second birth, every bit as dramatic in nature as the initial physical process, Jesus’ mother was written as a virgin in the Bible. Then, Jesus could be seen as a legitimate ‘Son of God’. However, what seems like a harmless rationalization completely distorts and camouflages the entire path of spiritual evolution.
This supposed miracle of birth falsely demonstrates to everyone who takes it as truth, that Jesus’ experience of becoming one with God was unique, and only fully appreciated through the increasing imposition of a Christian hierarchy on our lives. The knowledge that such spiritual liberation, living Brahman, is inherently available to all of us, was lost.
Also the Bible limits the process and experience of significant transcendence to bodily death, when one ascends to heaven. This is clearly false, with the appreciation of and involvement in divine life available during life here on earth.
Now simple instructions have again been introduced in the form of transcendental meditation, so that mothers and fathers living cosmic life can again naturally give birth to those of a similar nature. Each of us has as our birthright a life of unbounded awareness, Totality, Brahman.:-)
