In the “Mystery of the Christos” by Corinne Heline, the Christ Spirit has four aspects: cosmic, planetary, historical and mystical. This Christ Spirit makes four major contacts with the earth during the solstices and equinoxes.
Heline states that the events in the life of Jesus the Christ represent the initiatory steps that each one of us must take to become a Christed soul. The Christ is not a person but a “office” or “position” we ALL attain to.
Christmas: the “sacrifice” of the Cosmic Christ. Christ fills every atom of space and all living things with love and light. At this same time of year our physical sun, which brings life to us and to our planet, comes closest to the earth than any other time of year. The sun is at its lowest point in the sky at Winter solstice December 21st. The sun is above the horizon the least amount of time during that day. The Winter solstice is known as the shortest day of the year.
