Birth of Births

Birth of Births | by Eva Pol

 

Another perspective

Birth of births… Creation of creations… Masterpiece of masterpieces… What a representative mural of Birth of the Son of God. Inspired clearly by a leading major event, let share some thoughts. For some of you, it may sound disappointing… This is not the purpose of this article. It is posted spontaneously for spiritual outwardness.

Christmas’s coming… Is it coming for real? It is “must” –commercially of course–. What about our hearts? Are they warm enough? This is an entirely different perspective, it’s something alternative. It is said before. Have a more careful look at the mural of Birth. Hmm… something is missing. What is it? True light, the light which warms up our hearts, as animals did through breathing in front of the Creator, as three wise men did by offering the most precious gifts to Him. The spread done without technology and media. How? What a blessing of coming closer to His light and living such a miracle.

In approach of our reality and on the threshold of 2018… in the era of black Fridays, shopping “cannibalism”, “man-eater” TV shows etc. So many customs and traditions, much more glitters and lights for Christmas feast, so much work done, why? Oh well… you know the answer. And what’s more, the next day is coming… We are the same just passing the real meaning away, instantly as we remain “shallow and empty”. There is no reason for too many complaints about the way we live. We all have –personally and impersonally– the responsibility for such “shallowness”. Let open our hearts… this is the only key for our happiness. Let memory of Birth come and stay in our souls…
