This year I chose to have a solitary Christmas. Enough with all the hoo hah, the over indulging and what I see as the loss of meaning of what used to be a simple and straightforward family day. Cynical; you might say!
It is not helped by the fact that I do not see my children at all, which puts a different complexion to the whole thing.
And yet the Universe was at it’s best urging me to watch the movie ‘Zeitgeist,’ which I did and it seemed ironic if not paradoxical that I should watch this on Christmas day.
If you have not seen the DVD, I urge you to get it asap and be informed about what is going on in our world. It is an eye opener for sure and makes you think and think and think!
The movie covers many subjects and one is the part played by the Sun in our Universe. It also touches on the Stars and the Zodiac. It is interesting to note that the Zodiac represents the Sun passing through the 12 major constellations though the year, the 4 seasons, the Solstices and the Equinoxes.
The Egyptians called it “God’s Sun” – the light of the world and when you come to think about it, where would we be without the Sun. No life could exist without it!
It is interesting to note that the Egyptians had a Sun God by the name of ‘Horus.’ Bear in mind this was 3000 BC. Interesting that he was born on December 25th of the virgin Isis-Meri. His birth was accompanied by a star in the east and upon his birth he was adored by 3 kings. Sound familiar?
At age 12 he was a prodigal child teacher and at 30 was baptised by Anup. He had 12 disciples, was crucified, buried and was resurrected in 3 days. You’ve heard this before, haven’t you?
What is even more puzzling is that this same chain of events occurred to others; namely Attis, Krishna, Dionysius and Mithra. So what is the explanation? You will have to watch the movie now!
If you follow the Sun and the stars you will note that the brightest star on December 24th is Sirius when it aligns with the three brightest stars in Orions belt called the 3 Kings and they all point to the place of the sunrise on December 25th. near the constellation Virgo (Virgin) also referred to as the ‘House of Bread.’ Interesting that Bethlehem translates to ‘House of Bread.’ Can you see the connection? Virgin, bright star, 3 Kings, Bethlehem.
If you read Dr John Demartini’s post on Facebook, this is what he says about Christmas.
Christmas day is a day of light, grace and love. It is a reminder of the return of the light to the world after the darkest night and shortest day of the year (northern hemisphere). It is a reminder to see our magnificent reflection in others and to show our gratitude for their contribution to our lives. May this day be filled with a deep appreciation for what is, as it is ? reflected throughout the universe.
It is also interesting that on the 22nd of December Sun stops moving for 3 days and then moves one degree on the 25th of December.
So where is this all taking us? An inscription on the walls of the temple of Luxor in Egypt, 3500 years ago depicted the Virgin birth. The literary similarities between the Egyptian and Christian religions are staggering.
So, I hope that I have not confused you, but given you food for thought and I can say for a fact that ‘Zeitgeist’ will give you much more to think about!
In peace and love
