I know it's so difficult to imagine that Spring is here with so much snow on the ground in the Northeast, but Spring Equinox doesn't mean that we are seeing flowers and trees bloom immediately on this day, but what it's a lot more cosmic than some of us know.
In Christianity, the spring equinox is the time of the passion, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. Likewise in ancient Egypt, it is the time of the resurrection of the ancient Egyptian God Osiris; and the resurrection of the Mayan Maize God Hun Hunahpu. The Great Sphinx of Giza, in Egypt, symbol of resurrection, gazes precisely at the rising of the spring equinox sun. The temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia aligns to the spring equinox, and depicts the scene of the “churning of the milky ocean”—the struggle between the forces of light and darkness. At the temple of the feathered serpent in Mexico at Chichen Itza, the feathered serpent Quetzalcoatl ascends the nine terraces of the pyramid on the spring equinox.
The sun’s visual journey throughout the course of the year signifies a universal journey, which has been understood and undertaken by people throughout the world, and throughout time—the journey to enlightenment. This is why the lives of Jesus, Osiris, Tammuz, Adonis, Attis, Hun Hunahpu, Dionysus, and many others, match the cycle of the sun. Each of these deities revealed the process of reaching enlightenment in the events of their lives, just as the cosmos reveals it each year in the path of the sun, and why the lives of these deities share so many similarities. Creation is imbued with the very truths of the deeper purpose of life. This is also why ancient sacred sites and teachings integrated the movements of the sun and stars, symbols of nature, and sacred principles of mathematics, into their temples and texts. The wheel of the year, the sun is the Christ, the Son, the universal spiritual force which merges with a person doing the spiritual work once they have reached an advanced spiritual level. The Christ is not unique to Christianity—Jesus portrayed the work of the Christ in his life, just as Osiris, Krishna, Mithras, and Tammuz did thousands of years earlier, and Quetzalcoatl and Hun Hunahpu did vast distances away. Central to their lives was their own betrayal, death, and resurrection, which occurred on or was associated with the time of the spring equinox. Through their lives they portrayed what an initiate goes through to reach what has been called salvation, eternal life, enlightenment, self-realization, immortality, imperishability, awakening, liberation, etc., and what someone still goes through to reach this today.
