Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor



Christmas is a solar festival, an ineffable cosmic festival with its origin in the mysterious night of the centuries. The three-dimensional physical sun is only the medium through which the spiritual sun acts. The physical sun meets the mystical sun, the sun of midnight, the star of Bethlehem, the Cosmic Christ.

All ancient religions paid homage to the sun. Even the Vatican is constructed so that its doors open towards the east, towards the rising sun. The early Christians always repeated with great devotion: “Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Sun.”

There are three forces at work in all galaxies: the first is centripetal; the second is centrifugal; the third is neutral, serving as a point of support and equilibrium. The centrifugal force imparts movement in spiral form to a nebula in the same way that a whirlwind raises dust in a spiral manner. Ancient esoteric traditions affirm that the Transcendental Church exists in the central sun Sirius.

The sun which warms us and gives us life, our beloved sun, source of all life, is located approximately 30,000 light years from the center, i.e. two thirds of the distance from the center of the galaxy to the perimeter. It appears to be near the interior ring of a spiral arm, near a group of very weak and distant stars, and near another group, which is closer to the center.
