The Nativity ~ Some Thoughts from Tau Malachi

"The shepherds come and tell what the angels have announced to them: that in the city of David a Savior is born and that they are invited to seek him, and to find him, and to see him, wrapped in swaddling clothes. Mary ponders these things in her heart.:

The story of the “Immaculate Conception” and “Virgin Birth” is understood as a myth that conveys secret knowledge of Christ, unfolding something of the greater mystery of the Christos to initiates who are aware of the mystical and symbolic language underlying the gospels.

Mother Mary is called the Partzuf of Primordial Wisdom, Mother Sophia, in the teachings of the Tradition; hence, she is the symbol of Uncreated Wisdom. The nature of Primordial Wisdom of Clear Light, and the story of the Virgin Birth indicates that the Christos is the natural and spontaneous emanation of our True Being when we recognize and realize the primordial nature of our consciousness – the Clear Light Essence. This occurs through the movement of the Holy Spirit which brings us into repose – the state of Bornless Being.

The Holy Mother is the space in which the Gospel transpires and everything transpires – the spaciousness of Pure Radiant Awareness. In speaking of enthronement, the repose of the Son in the Father, we may say that the Holy Throne is the lap of the Divine Mother (this alludes to the Eightfold Path as a Circle – birth and enthronement join, the serpent with its tail in its mouth).

by Andrey Shishkin; Luke 2:30; (Simeon) "For my eyes have seen Your salvation, Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples, A Light of revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.” And His father and mother were amazed at the things which were being said about Him.:
The birth in a barn among animals speaks of Christ as the true human being, and suggests a teaching common to Gnostic schools which proposes that we are not fully human until the indwelling Christ is realized in us – this Light-presence that is inseparable from the Light-continuum. We see this, for example, in the Gospel of Philip which speaks of animals and human beings, humanity representing the spiritual elect who have received and integrated the gift of the Fiery Intelligence, the power of the Holy Spirit. (The barn may also correspond to the Root Star, the base of the interior stars in the subtle body.)

The star the leads the magi to the Christ Child alludes to the true nature of Christ – the attainment of supernal or Messianic consciousness, the nature of which is Supernal Light-force, a spiritual nuclear fire that transforms all levels of consciousness into the Image of Itself. The Supernal Center is above the head, beyond the Crown Star.

Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem:

Come from the East, O you Shining Ones,
Come from the West, O you Ancient Ones,
O you Righteous Ones in the South,
And you Jeweled Ones in the North,
Arise, move and appear;
Come, lets us praise the Holy One!
