      THE TWELVE HOLY DAYS

      Foreword

      A belief commonly prevails that December 25th, celebrated as
      Christmas, brings to a close the spiritual festival of the mid-
      winter solstitial season. This is not true. It only marks the
      beginning or the entrance upon a period of deep significance. That
      period is the twelve-day interval between Christmas and Twelfth
      Night, days which embrace the spiritual heart of the year to follow.
      These twelve days have been very aptly termed the year's Holy of
      Holies.

      This work is designed for serious students of the Christian
      Mysteries, to assist them in placing themselves in more complete
      attunement with the twelve zodiacal forces released upon the earth
      during this time.

      Everyone of the twelve Holy Days is under the direct supervision of
      one of the twelve zodiacal Hierarchies, each one of which projects
      over the planet a cosmic pattern of the world as it will be when the
      combined work of the Hierarchies has been completed. Also, the
      twelve Disciples are correlated with these twelve Holy Days, as are
      the twelve spiritual centers through which the twelve forces operate
      in man's body-temple.

      Every earnest student will, therefore, make use of this sacred
      period for visualizing the perfected work of the Hierarchies, in
      meditation upon the life and work of the Disciples, and in directing
      the spiritual radiations from the Hierarchies through the inner
      centers in his body to which they are attuned. If he is faithful and
      persists year after year in-this high endeavor, he can- not fail to
      receive compensation in the form of great spiritual unfoldment.

      From the time of the Winter Solstice when the Christ light enters
      the heart of earth, the planet is swept by powerful solstitial
      radiations which continue, though somewhat abated, through- out the
      twelve Holy Days. Many and wondrous are the inner plane activities
      during this time. The early Christian Church concluded its esoteric
      ministry on the mystical Twelfth Night with the Rite of Baptism, one
      of its highest Initiations. Modern neophytes who have earned
      illumination know that it is then possible to enter into communion
      with divine Beings and the Lord of Light. It was such an experience
      that inspired St. john's Gospel, frequently designated the "Gospel
      of Love."

      In the outer darkness of the present historical era man has largely
      lost contact with the Christ light and these days of spirit-
      renewing. By the travail of soul through which he is now passing, he
      is destined to find them again and to make them a vital part of his
      daily life and his yearly consecration. May this work serve him to
      that end.
