Disclaimer: Whether or not The Jesus Christ story of Christmas is true or not has no relevance to the actuality of the allegory of the story nor its meaning.

The Jesus Christ story is an allegory for initiation, and specifically the fourth initiation. The fourth aspect is frequently hidden, and the fourth initiation is nearly always obscured. The fourth initiation in the allegory of The Jesus Christ story is the resurrection.

The entirety of The Jesus Christ story contains numerous elements within in it of course, but as a whole, his is the story of the fourth initiation. And the fourth initiation is meant to be inspiration - not to wait for it to happen again but for you to proceed on a journey of consciousness ascension of your own.

The celebration of the fourth initiation marking The Christ story occurs during The Winter Solstice. This is the very moment of the year that represents the fourth initiation in the natural procession of the spheres. This fourth season is the resurrection, redemption, rebirth, the continuation of wisdom pursuits, and as the cosmos flows, we mark the rebirth of our own journey in correspondence with the lengthening of days and increase in sunlight.

There is creation, preservation of life, death, and the fourth aspect that is celebrated in the Christ story, there is rebirth, resurrection. This ritual celebration is meant to provide inspiration for the continuation of internal enlightenment.

Instead of celebrating the entire Christ story we most engage in celebrating his birth and creation. And the inspiration of The Christ ascension allegory, and anything pertaining to the fourth initiation is further scuttled by The Santa Clause. This cultural attachment to the holiday externalizes the celebration into mostly just gift exchange, instead of a celebration of internal transformational change.

The consideration of internal insight and inspiration for ascension is all but deleted and replaced with externalized discussions, 'What do you want for Christmas?' And, 'what are you getting for whom?'

The fourth initiation in line with The Winter Solstice and the fourth initiation in line with the Christ allegory is shadowed by bright lights and material considerations of externalized gifts instead of developing and sharing internal gifts.

Instead of going even discussing internal inspiration and wisdom on an internal rebirth and our own individuation renaissance we enact externalized celebrations, now mostly modernized attachments to what was originally Christmas, however quaint or spectacular the attachments and clauses may be.

How can we be inspired by the internalized lessons of The Christmas story of consciousness ascension?
