Christmas is… — Jim Burklo, USA

Christmas is…

The mythic story of a true turning point
In the natural history of consciousness,
Celebrating the birth of unconditional compassion.

The turn away from an eye for an eye,
The passing of supernatural, superpower God;
The rising of God with no power but love.

A story of hope for the peaceable kin-dom,
Activation for the foundation
Of a heavenly city on earth.

Poor shepherds and rich wise men
Brought to their knees in holy awe
Made equals in eyes of divine love.

Seeing the universe in a grain of sand,
Finding the cosmos in a baby’s hand,
Straining to listen to the angel band…
