Question: Can you give us some insight on the true meaning of the holiday season which we are now in the midst of? What lesson might we take from it that will aid our spiritual growth?
Answer: All forms of events are reflections of deeper, more invisible movements of certain forces that give rise to certain creations. So it is with the Christmas season. December 21st is the winter solstice, the darkest day and the beginning of the birth of light. Christmas was originally understood this way. Christ represents the birth of light that transforms the darkness.
