“A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.” (John 16: 21)
The new idea is constantly being brought forth. The bright promise for the recognition of the true man and woman that we are is always breaking through. The joy is already here to be claimed. We know what awaits, for we know our Father-Mother, and He knows us—the conception of His Love and the proof of His perfect Being. Our mourning can cease now. The sweet child of Love is about to make a stunning entrance!
Let us also know that we–just as a mother who loses the agony of the birth process when she holds her little one close–can give up the struggle, anguish, complaints and pains of yesterday for the newborn day and its wonderful potential. While we may feel that our lives have been too hard, too challenging, too much full of pain or loss or injustice, we can let that go. Our hour has come. Today is a day that we bear witness to the emergence of that developing idea. Now is the hour that we awake to behold ourselves and our lives clean and pure and ready to be loved and celebrated!
Today “a man is born into the world.” Today is the Christ-idea that Jesus proved ready for praise and honor, for grateful reverence. Today is our own new child born, our innocent yet powerful selfhood ushered forth into the bright morning to be embraced, sung over, celebrated, and upheld by the firm and tender hand of God.
