“Anyone can understand Christ’ birth as it is described in the Bible perfectly well intellectually, but a purely intellectual understanding has no effect on the emotional level: the heart has no grasp on it. Intellectual understanding must be extended to the level of the heart and, from the heart, reach down to the level of the will to manifest concretely on the physical plane.
For the nativity of the infant Christ is an event that must take place on the three levels: mental, astral and physical. You will ask, ‘But how can it actually happen on the physical level?’ Well, I can explain it to you, but I wonder if you will understand.
Humans will never be able to bring Jesus to birth within themselves if they do not understand their mother, the earth. If they have no idea what the earth is and have never established a relationship of awareness, affection and respect with her, they will never be able to change anything in their physical body.
Our body has close ties to the earth; it is a child of the earth, and one day it will return to the womb from which it came, and if our relationship with mother earth is not what it should be, the Christ cannot be born either in our acts or in our physical body.
People never imagine that the earth is intelligent. They study it solely from the geographical point of view: so many inhabitants, so many seas, oceans and lakes, so many mountains and rivers, etc. The earth is the least known and the most neglected and despised of creatures, and a great many misfortunes stem from this ignorant attitude, this lack of respect for our mother earth, who gave of her own body to fashion our bodies…”
