The Initiation of the “I” and The Christmas Mysteries
18 December, 2015 - 20 December, 2015
Once the body has grown, the soul begins to develop, either in relationship to the physical body which is limited and transient, or within its own capacities whereby the soul develops through sentient experience into intellectual reasoning and finally towards full consciousness. It is during this development of the capacities which occur through individual effort, that the I may begin its initiation.
The path of initiation leads us towards transformation of the soul’s capacities into organs of spiritual perception and a living relationship with the spiritual world. The participation in the truth that is traced out in the spiritual world becomes the source of our giving towards the outer life and transforms the outer world in which we all participate.
Even before we are called onto the path of initiation we can prepare ourselves by understanding the way and the truth of the unfolding schooling we shall take.
Through the inner work path we become aware of the living spiritual year and its reflection in the stages of inner development. The Christmas picture is full of insights and guidance to students of the path; in the yearly opportunity given to us in The Holy Nights, we can experience a time in which the spiritual world becomes more accessible and the preparation and effort we make supports the birth of our Higher Self and the journey towards initiation. The more we understand and live the inner path, the greater we can serve the outer life. As we celebrate the collective spiritual year we can find our individual inner year and our next step onwards.
