Christmas, in the West, is an especially holy time of year. Jyotish encourages us very sincerely to exit the body through our spiritual eye and merge our consciousness with Christ, during this Christ-mas time.
"My eyes are enthralled, O Father, with the beauty of the flowers, the passing scenes of life, and the sailing, silent clouds. Open that eye in me which sees nothing but Thee. With that gaze — above, beneath, around, within or without may I behold Thee. Teach me to see in all things nothing but Thee. Open in me that eye which beholds in all beauty only Thy reigning beauty!"
