The Seventh Holy Night (30th – 31st December) & The Eighth Holy Night (31 December - 01 January)

The Seventh Holy Night (30th – 31st December) corresponds to the month of July, the worldview we call Phenomenalism, and the Virgo zodiac sign.

In connection with the hierarchy of the Spirits of Wisdom, Kyriotetes, the image of the Celestial Virgin points us towards the cosmic image of divine Sophia, which represents the original wisdom of the world. In the Apocalypse she is the woman clothed with the sun and crowned with 12 stars. She symbolizes the woman giving birth to the sun, infusing humanity with the principle of life. She also represents the virgin with the moon at her feet, which resulted in the formation of silver. This metal speaks of the defeat of lunar forces by solar forces. Mary from the Gospel of Luke is the earthly copy of the celestial Sophia. She gave birth to the "living soul," Jesus of the Nathanic line of the house of David. She is the virtue that bestows.

"One might say: Surely, I limit myself to the world that surrounds me from all sides. But I don't claim to have any right to assert that this world is the real one. I can't say more than this: This world appears to me. I have no right to say other things about it. - There is a certain distinction here. One can claim that this surrounding world is the real one. But one can also say: I can't talk about another world; but it's clear to me that this is the world that appears to me. Regarding this world of sounds and colors, which only arises because certain processes in my eyes appear as colors, because of processes in my ears that appear as sounds, etc., I don't claim this is the real world. It's the world of phenomena." – The resulting worldview would be called Phenomenalism.

Real-life example:

In one of our work sessions Andrea told me how important it is for her to exercise to maintain her physical tone and health. She said she goes to the gym and listens to music while working out. I advised her that if she wanted the desired benefits, it was important to focus only on the physical activity and not listen to music. It's a technique I also work on with athletes I guide in their preparation for the Olympics. Andrea was upset. Why shouldn’t she listen to music since it helps her get through the workout? Precisely because, I responded, when she listens to music during physical activities, instead of focusing on her movements, she immerses herself in a non-existent world. Losing partial contact with reality, her movements become mechanical and spiritless, hence inefficient. Since then Andrea cycles while being mindful of her actions and is more efficient and balanced in the end. I realized then that I had used the worldview called Phenomenalism.

The Eighth Holy Night (31 December - 01 January) corresponds to the month of August, the worldview we call Sensualism, and the Leo zodiac sign.

The realm of Leo is connected with the hierarchy of the Spirits of Will or Thrones. It represents the power of action and royal dignity. The inner strength of courage helps humans establish a right relationship with their own karma, understanding and working on it. The sacrifice made on Old Saturn by the Spirits of Will, the Thrones, was pouring out their essence, warmth.

"Let's proceed and say: It's true we have the world of phenomena around us. But all that we believe we perceive in these phenomena, which we ourselves have added, we've added through our thinking – we've added phenomena with our thoughts. In reality, only what our senses tell us is valid. - Pay attention! A person who says this is not a follower of phenomenalism but separates from the phenomenon everything that seems to originate only from intellect and reason, admitting only the impressions given by the senses from the reality's core. This conception can be called Sensualism."

Real-life example:

"Always do what you feel." I find this phrase one of the most dangerous, and I often encounter it with those I work with. Always doing what you feel is the biggest trap. One day, Andrea told me she was facing a significant decision – changing her job, which also meant relocating to another country where she knew no one. She said she wanted to accept this opportunity because that's what she felt. I then narrated an imagination I heard from my friend Zoltan, describing a cartoon he saw. Two lovers sat on a bench. Cupid appears and strikes the man with an arrow. Feeling the arrow piercing him, he concludes in an illustration, "I've been hit by Indians." Instead of falling in love, he goes to fight Indians, thus losing potential love with the girl on the bench. The representation was wrong, even though what he felt was justified. He was pierced by an arrow. But, lacking the notion, the representation was entirely off. Andrea understood then that our task was to transform the phrase "always do what we feel (and what we like)" to "always love what we do (even if we often don't like it at all)". I still accompany her on her journey, where she's fully engaged. That day, Andrea came to me with the worldview called Sensualism.
