The fact that the Feasts of Christmas and Easter coincide with the winter solstice and the spring equinox is evidence of their cosmic significance. So we learn that the human being, who is part of the universe, participates intimately in the natural process of gestation and blossoming. These two feasts are two different ways of celebrating the regeneration of men and women and their birth into the spiritual world.
The four cardinal Feast-days of the year; Christmas, Easter, St. John's and Michaelmas, do not owe their existence to chance nor to the arbitrary decision of some religious leader of the past; they correspond to specific cosmic phenomena. During the course of ayear the sun passes through four cardinal points (the spring and autumn equinoxes and the summer and winter solstices), and each of these four periods is marked by a tremendous input and circulation of energies which affect the Earth and its inhabitants: plants, animals and human beings. Initiates, who have studied these phenomena, tell us that if men are attentive and receptive to these currents and prepare for their coming by tuning in to them, they can be transformed by them.
