The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness. See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within, and accept it as the sign the time of Christ has come. T327
Why would you want to see light outside yourself and not inside?
Because you think darkness is within!
The title of Lesson 93 in the Workbook is “Light and joy and peace abide in me” and yet it begins with the astounding words : You think you are the home of evil, darkness and sin. W161
We think inner darkness is the problem when it isn’t. That is the ego’s clever trick.
Seeking light outside ourselves is the same as saying that darkness is within and it is real!
But the problem is not inner darkness. The problem is that we choose to believe in inner darkness. To repeat: The problem is not inner darkness but the choice to believe in darkness.
The light is within unless we choose to think otherwise.
There is only one problem and one solution – the choice to believe in darkness and the choice to remember light.
This Christmas, see and enjoy all the outer lights that sparkle, because they remind you of the light inside. You do not see them as a comfort for the darkness within because you know there isn’t any.
