WINTER SOLSTICE AND THE COSMIC CHRIST

The “Birth” of the Sun inaugurates a new growth cycle. Earth and her people are ready for new beginnings. Every year there is a higher evolutionary cycle as a result of the Christ impulse. The Cosmic Christ is the principle of Love, and has a special center within the “sun.”
Two thousand years ago Jesus was prepared by the members of the Essenes to be a vehicle for the Cosmic Christ. Divinity took on flesh, and set the seed pattern for all human kind.
Every year since Jesus came to Earth, as its redeemer, The Cosmic Christ has re-enacted the drama of 2,000 years ago. With each returning Winter Solstice he is born anew.
The Holiest night of the year is Midnight on December 24th. The light of the Christ reaches the heart of Earth and forms a Mystic Star. Every person, plant, animal, mineral, cell and atom absorbs this light. It transforms the Globe into shimmering Gold.
In Celtic terms, the Winter Solstice is known as Alban Arthun or the birthday of Arthur. The legendary myth of Arthur as Solar King is represented by the Pineal gland. Arthur is known as King Pineal. He searches for the Holy Grail – the Divine Feminine or Queen Pituitary.
For a Disciple who has made themselves worthy of initiation, the Christ Child is born in the Manger. The “Manger” is the “Rainbow Bridge” between the Pineal and the Pituitary glands. This becomes the Altar of our Body Temple.
The answer to the question of the Holy Grail is – How can I help you?
What can I do for you?
Christmas only begins on December 25th. The next 12 days December 26-January 6 are considered the “Holy of Holies.” The veil between the two worlds is lifted, making it possible to receive wisdom from on high. These days can be used for soul dedication for the 12 months ahead. The 12th night, is known as Epiphany – the coming of the 3 Wise Men, the Magi bearing gifts for the Christ Child - Frankincense, Myrrh, and Gold. Orthodox Churches celebrate this day as Christmas. It is also known as “Little Christmas.”
Each day is under the direction of the 12 Zodiacal Hierarchies. The first day December 26 begins with Aries and the Disciple James - Brother of John. Aries marks the beginning of the Solar New Year. The 12 Disciples preside over each day. The 12 Spiritual centers for each sign are seen illumined, one added each day, so that by the 12th night the Body Temple is lit up like the glorious Christmas Tree.
Light your candle, say your prayers, listen, and dedicate yourself to becoming a worthy Temple where the Christ Consciousness can be born anew within each one of us. And always PRAY FOR PEACE.

Mother Mary speaking:
“Thy ceaseless offer must be LOVE, which is the GOLD;
Continual PRAYER, which is the INCENSE;
And the patient acceptance of labors and true mortifications
Which is the MYRRH.”
