Z.W.Leene, one of the founders of the modern School of the Golden Rosycross, wrote about the light birth in 1937 in his book “The Fire Glow of Ascension”: (part I, chapter Spark, Flame, Fire, page 124).
Celebrating Christmas is a happy event, when we celebrate in truthfulness the birth festivity with Him – the Christ - . Then the Light is not only shining on us, but it affects us, it changes us. From natural beings we then become spiritual human beings.
When the Light of Christ is born in our souls, it completely fills the human heart and mind, and in a spiritual sense it warms our soul and fills it with a fiery glow. In this fiery glow the light spark flares up, it becomes radiant and active. The essence of the Light is contained in the characteristics love, and power. When so touched, a human being then assimilates those values in a new and different way. As a consequence of the touch in the heart, the Light can change us from within, into the very depth of our being. The calling to humanity is not to follow the light, but to become the Light ourselves.
God is Light, a Light that is both transcendent in the solar system and immanent in His creations and creatures.
