I endorse all your words, and send my best wishes to you,
for your inspiring and dedicated contributions, and for all
brothers of theos-l who make these discussions a living
exercise of spiritual growth.

Each time I read these histories of the Solar Myth I do feel a bit
out of place. I never saw the myth in terms of the position of
our planet in relation with the Sun, what I think would be the
correct perspective for a planetary vision. I say this because I
am in the south hemisphere and here we just entered the "summer",
and all the mythic histories of this kind sounds very weird from
In a given occasion, I was studying for a talk on "Sacred Seasons",
grounded on Purucker work, and I got very confused in adapting
the "seasons" for the south position.
The account would become very interesting if we perceive that in
December solstice the Earth is at the shortest distance of the
Sun, next to the source of all life. So, the mythic insight
is more reliable than an account from the south or north hemisphere
point of view.
Fraternal greetings and Merry Christmas to all!
