Hidden Secrets of Christ’s Teachings, Part 3: Over the course of his lifetime of service, Dr. Masters presented a large number of inspirational lectures during his Sunday services. Almost all of them began with a meditation or healing treatment, after which he presented a teaching that included a set of affirmation statements.
In this lecture, Dr. Masters continues to explain how there are two types of teachings in Christianity: the outer teachings, which most people are familiar with; and the inner teachings, which Jesus taught only to the disciples. The inner teachings are of a more mystical nature, arising from what mystics, sages, and seers down through the ages have called “ageless wisdom.”
As this lecture series draws to a close, Dr. Masters focuses on the birth of Jesus, and what it means mystically. As Dr. Masters pointed out earlier in this series, every event in the life of Jesus symbolizes a spiritual event within ourselves. In a nutshell, the birth of Jesus represents the birth of Christ Consciousness within the human being . . . even in the lowest of the low, as symbolized by the birth of Jesus in a stable of animals.
And what of his birth being a “virgin” birth? Is that symbolic? Absolutely, for Christ Consciousness is located in that part of your mind that is untouched by human experience. It is purely virginal, and feminine in its creative nature.
And even though the tradition of having a Christmas Tree came much later, that, too, is mystically symbolic. According to Dr. Masters, its triangular shape represents the inner temple of man, which builds up to a point of higher consciousness. And the lights on the tree symbolize the lights that are often experienced in a state meditation, finally arriving at the pinnacle of higher consciousness represented by a star at the top of the tree.
This lecture—and this series—concludes with a longer-than-usual contemplative meditation.
