Above is a short video I've just made entitled "Blessing and the Upraised Arms."
The world's Star Myths use the annual interplay or struggle between the "upper half" of the year (when days are longer than nights) and the "lower half" of the year (when nights are longer than days) as an overarching structure for the interchange between the ordinary realm and the Infinite Realm.
See for instance the discussion in this previous post entitled "Here it has reached the turning-point: the celestial map of the soul's spiritual trek." See also the previous posts entitled "Blessing" and "Resolved: Blessing and not Cursing."
