The Cosmic Person
According to many myths, the Cosmic Person has to be sacrificed, if creation is to continue. Mathma Gandhi once said that without self sacrifice, nothing can be created. The sacrifice of Jesus is itself much more than just the death of an individual person--it is the beginning of a new creation. The star at the centre of this sacrificial ground, reminds us again of the star that appeared at the Incarnation. It is the star of the five openings of the human senses, and symbolizes the transformation of everything that is human into a light. The outer senses, symbolized by hands and feet, go round this inner star of the enlightened mind.
