How real is the Christmas story to you?
It may be no more than the tinsel and the tree, the shopping and the presents, the turkey and the treats; in short an opportunity for self indulgence and partying. For millions it is so much more, a time of deep significance, of reflection and spiritual renewal; the remembrance of a promise, angelic visitation and guidance, a merging of the celestial and the terrestrial. The rational mind rushes to dismiss what in the 21st century may seem fanciful and deluded. The story however does not rest on superstitious beliefs but on the science of metaphysics and is worthy of investigation from that position.
