Sun is the source of all life forms on Earth. And hence Sun was worshiped by almost all ancient cultures on Earth in one form or the other. But from modern scientific point of view, worshiping Sun was looked as primitive. Doctors and scientists educated us not to look at Sun directly, as it might be harmful to our eyes. And moreover with our busy lives, we hardly look at the sky and be thankful to Sun - the giver of Life. Yet the Sun goes on burning from within - to spread light and send its energies to support life on Earth - as well as help in its evolution. But recently few people from various parts of the world have proved to mainstream science that Sun is much more than what we believed it to be. Few of them from India and abroad have also shown how humans can live a healthy life without any food - surviving only on Sunlight! Is Sun only an object in space or a very evolved Spiritual Being? Is Sunlight really harmful to our eyes or we are mis-guided and Sunlight can actually heal all our diseases? Can humans really live entirely on Sunlight without taking any food for years? Current issue addresses these and many other questions related to the Truth about the Sun. I am sure you will find this issue very interesting and very much useful in speeding up your evolution by working with the Sun! Love, Amitt Parikh

The Hidden Reality of Solar Light By Mitchell Earl Gibson MD My investigation into the hidden nature of the human light body led to a strange and intriguing aspect of our reality. There is a hidden aspect to the light of the Sun. Mystical and spiritual traditions from nearly every culture have linked the Sun to man's higher evolution. Cultures as diverse as the Essenes, The Mayan, Aztecs, Buddhists, Hindus, Oceanic tribes, and Native Americans all link the power of the Sun to man's higher nature. According to these Ancient Traditions, the hidden nature of sunlight holds an important key to higher human evolution. In this chapter, I will summarize the major findings of these traditions as they relate to the hidden nature of the Sun.

29 YSR 01


The True Nature of Solar Light Sunlight and eyesight are actually linked in an interesting way. The human eye is actually a miniature sun and like the sun of our solar system, it has the ability to absorb and radiate light. It absorbs energy through the retina from where it is redistributed to the brain and nervous system. We know that these energy particles are the carriers of various Universal Factors of Energy that are capable of doing predetermined and specific work. In short, the Sun is a living entity and the Light of the Sun is a complex carrier wave that encodes several levels of information and energy that we use to sustain life on this world. There are at least five major components that make up the light of the Sun. In the early stages of our

evolution, we are affected primarily by the negative factors within these components. As we evolve and become more knowledgeable of the true nature of Solar Light, we then learn to take full advantage of the hidden power of this Light. The five major components of Sunlight are: A. Information Factors B. Universal Forces C. Energetic Factors D. Evolutionary Factors E. Enlightenment Factors The Ancients believed that these energies affect humans in a variety of ways. Their knowledge of these energies was extensive. Let us examine each of these factors in turn. A. Information factors are intelligent packets of energy that are somewhat analogous to digital bits of information that are transmitted via sunlight. Ever wonder where all the information in the world came from? Where did calculus come from? Where did the idea of flowers come from? All of it came from the Sun. To be honest, all of it came from God, but it came to us more directly from the Corpus of the Sun. In truth, God is constantly streaming out billions of gigabytes of data every second of every day. He is literally pouring out everything that he knows into our world. But for the most part, we ignore the data. Scientists are only now learning that light can carry information. Every day, billions of bits of data are encoded into computers, televisions, radio, and then streamed out to us in the form of light. According to the Ancients, God has been doing this for a much longer period of time. Information factors may be downloaded into the brain and used as a source of knowledge. The Essenes perfected the downloading of information from the Sun in a process called Gnostic solar transmission.

29 YSR 02


Suffice it to say at this time, information factors provide a plethora of opportunities for selfadvancement and growth. Information factors are created by God and as such, contain the divine spark of creation. The eyes are able to absorb these factors and later pass them on to the brain where they are further processed. Information factors may be stored within the cells of the body for later use. They may also be transmitted from one person to another. B. Universal Forces are among the most powerful energies radiated by the Sun. There are at least five main universal forces that are transmitted via the Sun throughout the Solar system. These forces are Afactor, B-Factor, X-factor, Y-factor, and Z-factor. Each of these factors play a specific role in our daily dimensional existence. A-factor is the prime generative force. It caused the first propagation of matter to be expelled from the Sun into the third dimension. Actually, it is the principle force that God uses to create dimensional reality as we know it. This force is constantly being emanated from the Sun. Whenever we grow our hair, mend a bone, digest our food, the action of A-factor is responsible. The A-factor is also a secondary cause of the aging process. It leads to growth and maturation within its sphere of influence. The overall action of A-factor allows a person to develop the ego and to embrace the idea of needing to express himself as a being separate from God. This force is necessary because without it, nothing would exist. God would be complete within himself with no need to create us, reality, or anything else. With the advent of the A-factor, Primordial Humans got the chance to create souls and experience karma. A-factor then creates growth, change, karma, and the need for self-expression on a personal level. In the course of fulfilling its activity, A-factor also contributes to the force of death. A-factor also creates human thought. It is the primary impelling force that

generates what we call human thinking. Ever try to stop your thoughts? It is among the hardest of things that you can do. The force that pushes your thoughts into your brain is the A-factor. In the truest sense, your thoughts come from God, but A-factor is how he expresses thoughts throughout the universe God thinks on multiple planes of reality, but the human plane of thought manifests as A-factor. Overcoming the urge to express a separate existence from the Creator is a major step in the process of Enlightenment. B-Factor acts on the dormant DNA molecules within the human genome and helps to initiate the development of certain paranormal abilities. Bfactor is a very powerful force. The force of B-factor is primarily dormant during the vast majority of human lifetimes. B-factor is released primarily around sunset and is active in releasing two special sets of genes from within the body. Science has discovered that the paranormal powers that we all possess are controlled by two sets of genes called Psi Genes. The Psi A genes turn on the paranormal potential that we all have. Psi B genes turn off our paranormal potential. The interesting thing about Psi B genes is that they occur in a position which is very close to a set of genes called the oncogenes. Oncogenes cause cancer in humans. Oddly enough, increased Psi B gene activity can lead to greater activation of the genes that cause cancer. B-factor turns off the Psi-B gene and turns on the Psi-A gene. In effect, it supercharges the human genetic system. The problem with B-factor is that it is only released for exceedingly brief periods of

29 YSR 03


time, (a few minutes at most). This release occurs at sunset and may be seen as a green flash of energy. B-factor is extremely active in the fifth dimension and is the primary energy released by the Sun in that dimension. The action of B-factor in the fifth dimension allows for the creation of a Higher, More Evolved version of the Human Light Body. Through the action of the B-factor, the Light Body becomes one with God and the individual is no longer able to reincarnate in physical form. B-factor allows one to become self-generating. This is the ability to create a physical form without the need for parents or traditional incarnation. B-factor may also be stored within certain precious stones and activated by the use of mantras. X-Factor acts on the dormant DNA molecule to create a permanent form of the physical body. X-factor is released primarily at sunrise and for about one hour. It is also released during the hour before sunset. Most of the DNA in the human body is inactive. As a matter of fact, more than 97% of the DNA of your body has no known function. 1-3% of our DNA is necessary for the encoding of proteins. Scientists call the remainder junk DNA. X-factor is an extremely powerful force that may be stored within the brain, certain precious stones, and activated by mantra. X-factor is an extremely powerful force that may be stored within the brain, certain precious stones, and activated by mantra. The activation of X-factor causes a great change within the body. As the DNA strands necessary for the building of the Light Body are gradually decoded, a great deal of energy is released from the physical body. The Sun provides an abundant supply of this energy in the form of Primary Life Force energy. One

of the main functions of X-factor is the activation of the Primary Life Force centers within the human body. In most people, the chakras control the flow of the life force within the body. As the energy of X-factor increases within the body, the energy flow within the chakras increases and the dormant energy of the Life Force Centers is released. The Ancients believe that the Light Body is powered by four main force centers. They are formed from the combined energy of each of two chakras. Chakras one and two form the first force Center. Chakras three and four form the second force Center. Chakras five and six form the third force Center. Chakras seven and eight form the fourth force center. As the human mind evolves and enlightens, the planes of awareness expand and the Higher Mind gradually takes up residence within the physical body. The action of the X-factor makes this transition possible. As the DNA is transformed and decoded, the body and mind are transformed as well. The resultant entity is called the Vajra Body. There have been tens of thousands of instances of the successful transition of humans from the physical body into the Vajra Body or Light Body. This happens through the use of the X-Factor. Once a human takes full advantage of the Xfactor and transforms himself, he/she may still return to physical life through the process of reincarnation. However this is a choice and not a necessity. This return is often for a specific purpose and usually serves to teach some hidden aspect of spiritual life to humans. If the Initiate takes advantage of the activity of B-factor after generating the Light Body, they can become self-generating. It can however manifest itself on multiple levels of reality simultaneously. Y-factor is the primary force of aging and decay in this dimension. It is carried via the ultraviolet

29 YSR 04


portion of sunlight during the midday and afternoon hours. Y-factor is necessary because all things must follow the natural flow of time and reality. Enlightened beings that have generated the Light Body live outside the accepted realms of time and space. In order for a god to generate a Light Body form, they must become human. Gods live for extremely long periods of time and may even appear to be immortal. However, after a time, even gods are subject to the force of Y-factor and eventually die. Y-factor originates within the fourth dimension and results from the action of A-factor on that plane. The action of Y-factor creates the unconscious mind and thus the process of death. Beings that have no unconscious mind are not subject to the force of death. The action of the creation of the unconscious mind creates a repository for the storage of Y-factor. This storage process creates a series of chain reactions that leads to the event of physical death. The unconscious mind creates breathing as a result of the action of Y-factor. Y-factor also creates secondary life force. Beings that live in the higher Dimensions are not subject to the force of the Y-factor. They do not breathe, they do not have an unconscious aspect to their minds, and they do not die. Fourth dimensional beings do not have a subconscious component to the mind. As a result, fourth dimensional beings live much longer life spans than third dimensional beings. The action of Y-factor on the third dimension creates another negative emanation from the Sun, the Z-factor. Z-factor is another negative radiation released by the Sun and it primarily causes cellular and genetic mutation in living species. Z-factor causes the creation of the subconscious mind in humans. As such, this force may be stored within the physical form. The physical body acts as the storehouse for the

energy released by the subconscious mind. The cumulative action of Z-factor upon the human body causes aging and death. The combined forces of Y and Z factor act as a lethal combination for the demise of the human body. The Z-factor is primarily released by the Sun in the form of midday and late afternoon radiation.

Evolutionary Factor There are certain energetic components to sunlight that specifically help to initiate Consciousness and intelligent thought. The Ancients teach that this factor is a new creation that was first released by the Sun less than 250,000 years ago. Primarily, it allows humans to evolve and move forward as a species. Evolutionary factor is released continuously by the Sun. There are specific techniques and Solar Mudras that will allow humans to take advantage of this factor.

Energetic Factors This is the main function of sunlight that humans about which humans are most knowledgeable. This aspect of sunlight carries the electromagnetic spectrum and certain nourishing energy frequencies that are capable of sustaining life. All of the elements that are necessary for life emanated originally from the Sun. Water, air, fire, earth, and all of the necessary nutrients for life came to us from the Sun. Each and every second, billions of tons of matter are released from the Sun and hurled toward the planets. This matter forms the basis for all life in our Solar System. The Energetic factors that the Sun releases are able to sustain life all on their own. How can the body take in energetic factors in such a manner as to sustain life? Is it possible that some of our dormant “junk� DNA may become active and allow us to utilize Solar Energetic Factors in the same way that plants do? Let us examine a possible method.

There is a pathway from the retina, to the hypothalamus, called the retino-hypothalamic tract. This brings information about the dark &light cycles to supra-chiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus. From the SCN, impulses along the nerve travel via the pineal nerve (Sympathetic nervous system) to the pineal gland. These impulses inhibit the production of melatonin. When these impulses stop (at night or in dark, when the light no longer stimulates the hypothalamus) pineal inhibition ceases, and melatonin is released. The pineal gland is therefore a photosensitive organ and an important timekeeper for the human body. The unexplored process of energy absorption, transformation, and processing from the Sun may occur here. The activation of pineal gland is a key step in psychic, spiritual and energy transformation processes. Suffice it to say that in this gland, energy processing and distribution can take place. The pineal gland is the subtle controller of all endocrine glands, therefore controlling the endocrine system. Through secretion of melatonin, it also regulates the circadian rhythm, sleep wake cycle and it also slows down aging process. It has psychic properties and it is said to be the seat of soul or mind. Sunlight may enter the eyes and be directly stored in the pineal gland. Pineal activation and charging through solar energy could be a vital step in higher evolution. Once activated and charged by the Pineal gland, Solar Energetic factors may be transformed into electrical, magnetic or chemical energies in body. Once processed, this energy must be transported & must be stored somewhere. If the initial processing of this energy starts in the pineal gland, how does it get to the rest of the body? The Hypothalamus is the controller of autonomic nervous system. The pineal gland is connected to it through a net of autonomic nerves. The new energy that is derived from the Sun may be transported via this system of nerves into the hypothalamus. The role of temporal lobe and limbic system also

may be important. It may work as a regulator, if not receptor and may be psychically involved in directing the energy in proper pathways. The medulla oblongata contains many centers vital to life and may also store some of this energy. Other parts of the brain may play as yet undiscovered roles.

Enlightenment Factors There are specific energy factors released by the Sun that are designed to awaken and enliven the human mind. There are specific mudras and mantras designed to selectively guide these energies into the human mind. These energies raise the IQ, enhance creative abilities, enhance musical gifts, enliven the body, and empower the process of Enlightenment.

The Spiritual Sun In addition to the plethora of information regarding the hidden radiations of the Sun, the Ancients wrote extensively about the Spiritual Nature of the Sun itself. They wrote that the Sun which we see each day is only a small part of a much larger entity. This entity is part of a larger universe that feeds and nourishes our smaller physical domain. Let us examine this information. The Ancients taught that the Sun is part of a constellation of Solar Entities connected to the Primordial Sun. The Primordial Sun is the archetypal blueprint for all the Suns of the physical universe. The expansion of the physical universe is caused by the Y factor and occurs in parallel with the contraction caused by the Z factor. All Suns emanate from a central Primordial Sun. The Primordial Sun is extra-dimensional in nature. This Primordial Sun forms around the Source. The Source is the collection point for all of God's energy that empowers and creates this universe. The energy that collects in this point is massive and forms itself automatically into a huge Primordial Sun. All souls enter into this universe first through the Primordial Sun. The seeds for all our Light Bodies are said to exist within the Primordial Sun. It is in essence the physical representation of the Source The appearance of the Primordial Sun as a Source of Light is an illusion.

29 YSR 06


The Primordial Sun emits Primordial Matter. The action of A-factor on the Primordial Sun impels the release of Primordial Matter. This is the first state of matter in our universe. It is this matter that is the genesis of all the elements in our universe. In the Higher Dimensions, the worlds are made mostly of primary matter. Orbiting the Primordial Sun are the Primordial Worlds. These are also called the First Worlds and they are home to The Elders. The Elders are the oldest created beings in existence. All living beings are descended from the Elders, even humans. As the A factor impels the creation of the lower dimensions, Primordial Matter is pushed into lower and lower states of being. In dimensions nine through five, Primordial Matter is not subject to the forces that create mortal forms. The Primary Forces working on Primordial Matter at these levels are A-factor, Bfactor, and X-factor. As Primordial Matter approaches the fourth dimension, it falls under the influence of Y-factor. The action of this factor creates the lower elements and ultimately physical matter. The fourth dimension has little physical matter in comparison to the third dimension. The third dimension is more than 95% physical matter as a result of the combined actions of the Y and Z factors. There are small amounts of Primordial Matter in existence in all created worlds below the fourth dimension. This Primordial Matter is responsible for the healing factors, intelligence, spiritual growth, and enlightenment that is possible on these worlds. From the Primordial Sun, the energy of Source enters into Worlds of Creation. These Worlds gradually expand due to the action of the A-factor. The Primordial Sun creates Galactic Suns which provide power for each galaxy in existence. At the core of our Galaxy is a huge Galactic Sun around which our Sun rotates. The Galactic Sun is an illusion just as the Primordial Sun is an illusion. Remember, the Primordial Sun is a convergence point for all of the energy of the Creator in this universe. The Galactic Sun is a convergence point for all of the energy of the Creator in this galaxy. The Galactic Sun is fifth

dimensional in nature, as are all stars in our universe. The Galactic Sun is millions of light years across and is the Source for our Sun and all of the stars in our galaxy. It is made of more than 90% Primordial Matter and is the Home of the most advanced beings in our galaxy. Galactic Suns connect directly to the Primordial Sun in the ninth dimension. Our Sun is a Cosmic Sun. It too is an optical illusion. The Sun is the convergence of all the Divine Creative Force within our Solar System. It is fifth dimensional by nature as are all stars. The bright light and energy that we see when we look at the Sun is a result of a great number of forces that are vectored within a single point in space. This point is called a focal release point. Through this point, all the energy of the Creator reaches our Solar System. The physical matter that streams through the point is only a small fraction of the total energy available from the Galactic Sun. All Cosmic Sun Systems (Stars) carry the Universal Forces into the local planetary systems that we call home. Through the Sun, we are connected to the Source, the Primordial Sun, the Galactic Sun, and the Primordial Worlds. The Sun is an intermediary, a catalyst between the macrocosmic and microcosmic universes. The cell is composed of atoms which, in turn, are composed of light wave/particles. The light wave particles oscillate in the same way that the Sun does. Remember, the Sun oscillates on a regular basis. Ordinarily, one may not be able to see the microcosmic pulsation, but the pulsation is clearly visible to the eye on the macrocosmic level when you begin using the Solar practices. This pulsation is exactly the same as that of your heartbeat. The force for the beat of your heart comes through from the Primordial Worlds, into the Sun, and finally to Earth. The energy of your universe is in constant motion and reveals a distinct pattern of motion, light and dark. There is also a third vibration, a link between space and time. This link is called Consciousness. Though it cannot be seen, Consciousness is the vehicle through which we can see and know the universe. The Sun is home to the Fifth Dimension in our Solar System. The physical light and matter that we see emanating from the Sun is in effect the reflection of Fifth Dimensional matter onto the third

29 YSR 07


dimension. Through the Sun, we are connected directly to the Fifth Dimension and thus to the Higher Beings that live there. These beings guide and influence all life on our plane of reality. It is through their guidance that we develop Enlightenment and the ability to develop civilization, art, music, science and culture. Through our connection with Fifth Dimensional Beings, we can access a direct source of power, knowledge, and evolutionary potential. All beings are able to access this knowledge given the correct techniques and training. By learning how to connect directly with the energy of the Sun, the Initiate can learn to communicate directly with the Gods themselves. Š Mitchell Earl Gibson MD, all rights reserved

Sun Yoga and its Healing Aspects by Ricardo B. Serrano, R.Ac.

"The most 'biologically active' part of sunlight is the ultraviolet. It is absolutely critical for optimal health" - Zane R. Kime, M.D. Most people in the West are not familiar of Sun Yoga as a disciplined practice of safe sun gazing, safe sunbathing, and drinking sun charged water and are not aware of its healing aspects. To maximize the energetic healing effect of the sun for chronic physical, mental and emotional ailments caused by sunlight and primordial Qi energy deficiency, I have combined the disciplined practice of sun gazing, sunbathing and qigong at sunrise daily for healing, whole body

Sunlight and Eye Model with Hypothalamus at the center of all bodily functions The Eyes, Sunlight and our Well-Being These findings, along with those of many other highly respected scientists and physicians, seem to indicate that the human body is truly a living photocell that is energized by the sun's light, the nutrient of humankind. Since light is recognized as having a profound effect on all living things, and since our perception of light is by way of our eyes, it becomes evident that the function of the eyes may not be for "seeing" alone. Light enters the eyes not only to serve vision, but to go directly to the body's biological clock within the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus controls the nervous system and endocrine system, whose combined effects regulate all biological functions in humans. In addition, the hypothalamus controls most of the body's regulatory functions by monitoring light-related information and sending it to the pineal, which then uses this information to cue other organs about light conditions in the environment. In other words, the hypothalamus acts as a puppet master who, quietly and out of sight, controls most of the functions that keep the body in balance.

29 YSR 09


All the body's systems relate to each other in a constant state of flux, with the hypothalamus at the center. The hypothalamus interfaces between mind and body, coordinating the readiness of both, affecting our consciousness, and thereby controlling our constant state of preparedness. This critical maintenance of body harmony is affected by synchronizing the body's vital functions with the environmental conditions, or, as some people say, "becoming one with the universe.� Why we need UV light from the sun: UV light activates vitamin D synthesis. UV light lowers blood pressure. UV light increases heart "performance". UV light improves ECG and blood parameters in persons suffering from arteriosclerosis. UV light lowers cholesterol counts. UV light helps in weight loss. UV light is effective against psoriasis. UV light is effective with numerous other ailments

(Krudsen in his book Light Therapy lists 165 diseases). UV light promotes the production of sex hormones. UV light activates an important skin hormone (Solitrole). UV light is a nutrient just as vitamins and minerals. Has Science Made a Mistake? What does nature say about all this? The research papers don't seem to address the fact that humans evolved under natural sunlight. Are we supposed to dismiss five million years of evolution because science doesn't understand the supreme wisdom of nature? In modern times, all of a sudden, ultraviolet light is "dangerous" and should be avoided at all costs. We live in houses with no ultraviolet light. When we leave our houses, we put on our glasses, contacts, or sunglasses, which block most of the UV light. We drive in cars that also block UV light. We work all day in offices andreceive no UV there either. Then at night we turn on our grossly distorted man-made lights - still no UV light. When we finally take a break and get out in the sun, what do we do? We put on our sunglasses and cover our skin with sunscreens - just to make sure we aren't exposed to these hazardous rays. A lot of people are now petrified to go out in the natural sunshine without some form of protection. Is there a possibility that maybe - just maybe - we have gone a little too far? Is it possible that science may have made a mistake? "The most 'biologically active' part of sunlight is the ultraviolet. It is absolutely critical for optimal health" - Zane R. Kime, M.D., Swannanoa Health Report, issues 2 & 3. (excerpts from Light, Medicine of the Future by

Dr. Jacob Liberman) "The sun is central to our well being and health. The light and heat from the sun are indispensable to all nature. Humanity is also part of nature and needs sunlight for health and well being, for vitality and happiness. There is a considerable body of scientific evidence demonstrating that "sunlight may play a key role in preventing and ameliorating a number of serious degenerative and infection diseases, including cancers of the breast, colon, ovaries and prostate; diabetes; high blood pressure; heart disease; multiple sclerosis; osteoporosis; psoriasis; rickets and tuberculosis." A closer study of the action of solar radiation on the body might well reveal the nature of cancer immunity." - Dr. Richard Hobday, Healing Sun Sun Yoga is basically a simple safe healing and spiritual enlightenment practice to learn, anyone can do it!

Symbolisms of the Sun By Margo Kirtikar PhD The sun has been the inspiration of mythologies and symbolism, rituals and beliefs in all cultures throughout the ages. In most cultures the sun stands for the male energy, light, reason and strength, as opposed to the moon which is associated with female qualities, darkness, emotion and giving. Below I will give you a brief and incomplete historiography of the various sun symbols in different cultures followed by some practical information.

29 YSR 11


The Solar Symbol A solar symbol that symbolises the sun has a significance in astrology, mythology, religion, mysticism, psychoanalysis and in many other fields as well. There are many solar symbols. Here are some examples The Circle

A simple circle that symbolizes the sun, a circular disk as in the flag of Japan, the flag of Bangladesh, and the Australian aboriginal flag.

The Circle with a dot in the centre

This is the astronomical and astrological symbol for the sun. It is also the ancient Egyptian sign for the sun or Ra in the hieroglyphic writing system.

The doubled Sun Cross

This symbol is the double cross in a circle, representing, Jesus the Savior and Redeemer. Triskelion

The Sun Cross

The sun cross or solar wheel, a cross inside a circle, is one of the oldest and most universal religious symbols and a popular neopagan solar symbol. It represents the four seasons and the tropical year. In prehistoric use this symbol represented the union of opposed polarities in the western world. This symbol was discovered in diverse areas of the world, scratched into stone or painted on pottery, for example in Pyrenees in old Europe, in Scotland, Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and in the Iranian Plateau. It may be compared to the yinyang symbol of the Eastern world. The Swastika

Some forms of the triple spiral or triskelion signs are considered to be solar symbols. The triskelion on the flag of Ingushetia is given this meaning. Rosette

This is a Slavic solar symbol, the flower of life symbol. Sun Circle

This is a very ancient Pagan sun wheel. A Slavic solar symbol. Shamas

The swastika is another solar symbol. It is used among Hindus, Jains and Buddhists. This symbol was also used by the Nazis in Germany who had a warped idea of its meaning. This symbol implies that the central point is not limited to one individual, however perfect. That the Principle 'God' is in humanity and humanity, as all the rest, is in it, like drops of water are in the ocean, the four ends being toward the four cardinal points, hence losing themselves in infinity. The Eight pointed Star

This symbol was used in the Euphrates and Tigris region, Mesopotamia, around 1000 B.C. to represent the sun god Shamas, the greatest power, the highest divinity. It is often depicted as rising out of the sign of Aries, the ram, representing the spring equinox. The wavy lines are signs of the sun's radiation. This symbol is often found in close physical proximity to the ideograms, for the moon god Sin, and for Ishtar, as well as with the staff of the Babylonian sun god Shamas. Rayed Depictons

This symbol also has a solar meaning and has appeared on the flag of several Russian subdivisions and also between 1959-1963 on the flag of Iraq.

29 YSR 12


A circular disk with alternating triangular and wavy rays emanating from it is a frquent symbol of

the sun. In the ancient Mesopotamian symbol of the sun-God Shamas there are four wav rays that emanate from the circle.

The Winged Sun

Solar Deity A solar deity is a god or goddess who represents the sun or an aspect of it. People have worshipped a god or goddess who represents the sun, for all of recorded history.

The Sun Chariot of Trundholm The Trundholm sun chariot pulled by a horse is believed to be a sculpture illustrating an important part of Nordic Bronze Age mythology. Its also called Solvognen in Danish. It is a bronze statue of a horse and large bronze disk, which are placed on a device with spoked wheels. The horse stands on a bronze rod supported by four wheels. All of the wheels have four spokes. Although the horse is supported by wheels also, the portion t h a t i s referred to as a chariot consists solely of the disk, the axle, and the wheels. The disk is interpreted as a depiction of the sun. The disk which has a diameter of about 25 cm is gilded on one side only, the right hand side. This has been interpreted as an indication of a belief that the sub is drawn across the heavens from East to West during the day, presenting the day time, and returns from west to East during the night. According to Professor or Archeoogy at the Unniversity of Copenhagen, Klaus Randsborg, the disk might have been designed by a person with some knowledge of astronomy and that the sculpture may have functioned as a calendar. The sculpture has been dated to 14th to 15th centuries B.C.

The winged sun was an ancient symbol of Horus, later identified with Ra. Egypt about 3rd millennium BC. Male and Female Sun Dieties A solar deity (also heliolatry or sun worship), is a god or goddess who represents the sun, or an aspect of it. Although solar dieties are generally male enemies of the lunar female diety Sun goddesses are more popular and are found on every continent. The dualism of sun/male/light and moon/female/darkness is found in many but not all european traditions. In different religions solarised supreme dieties carry different names and are associated with different aspects of the cultural universe of the society. The Neolithic concept of a solar barge, the sun as taversing the sky in a boat, is found in ancient egypt, with Ra and Horus. The Roman Empire celebrated a festival of the birth of Unconquered Sun, when the duration of daylight first begins to increase after the winter soltice, the rebirth of the sun. In German mythology this is Sol, in Vedic Surya, and in Greej Helios or Apollo. Mesopotamian Shamas plays an important role during the Bronze Age. South American cultures have emphatic sun worship. The Slavic god Svarog is the spirit of fire. Sun worship was exceptionally prevalent in ancient Egyptian religion. The "solarisation" of several gods (Hnum-Re, Min-Re, Amon-Re) reaches its peak in the period of the fifth dynasty. In the eighteenth dynasty, Akhenaten, changed the polytheistic religion of Egypt to a pseudo-monotheistic Atenism. The reigning sun god Amun and all other gods were replaced by the Aten. His only image was a disk, a symbol of the sun. In Chinese mythology, there were ten suns in the sky and the world was so hot that nothing grew. A hero

called Hou Yi shot down nine of the suns with his bow and arrows. The world became better ever since. In another myth, the solar eclipse was caused by the dog of heaven biting off a piece of the sun. There was a tradition in China to hit pots and pans during a solar eclipse to drive away the dog. In the Vedas, numerous hymns are dedicated to Surya Deva, the sun personified and Savitar the impeller, a solar deity associated with Surya. The Gayatri mantra, which is one of the most sacred of the Hindu hymns is dedictaed to the sun. The Mahabharata describes its warrior hero Karna as the son of Kunti and the sun. The Ramayana has its protagonist Rama as being from the Raghu Vamsham or the clan of kings as bright of the sun. In African many peoples use the local word for sun as the name for their supreme being. The Munsch tribe considers the sun to be the son of the supreme being Awondo and the moon is Awondo's daughter. The Barotse tribe believes that the sun is inhabited by the sky god Nyambi and the moon is his wife. The solar gods have a stronger presence in Indonesia's religious life and mythology. In some cases the sun is revered as a father or founder of the tribe. This may apply for the whole tribe or only for the royal and ruling families. In Australia and on the island of Timor, the tribal leaders are seen as direct heirs to the sun god. The sun is also seen as a mediator between the planes of the living and the dead. There are many archaic Sun cults which incorporate themselves into newer religions in the folklore traditions. In Japan for example there is a custom that young people representing the Sun's ancestors, the dead, paint their faces red and visit village homes, to guarantee the land's fertility. Another important myth complex is that of the Sun Hero, which is typical of the nomad herders. These heroes are found among the African nomad tribes, the tribes from Central Asia, Gesen Khan, the Samson

29 YSR 14


Jews, and also among all Indo-European peoples. The Sun Hero often saves the world renews the world, opens a new epoch, and generally brings about some major renewal to the established cosmical order. The Sun of May in Spanish, sol de Mayo, is one of the national emblems of Argentina and Uruguay, and it is featured on the countries' flags. It is a representation of the Inca sun god Inti. The sun, is a replica of an engraving on the Argentinian coin, approved in 1813, its value was one Spanish dollar, eight escudos. It has 16 straight and 16 waves sunbeams. It is referred as the sol de Mayo, because of the may Revolution which took place in May 1810 and marked the beginning of independence from Spain. Practical Info Are you aware that the sun rays are equivalent to gold rays and therefore, like gold, extremely beneficial to your health? Although it is dangerous in some areas of the world to sun bathe, it is very healthy to enjoy bright sunshine in little dosis, especially early mornings. It is healthy for the spleen, as the spleen, an important spiritual organ, tanks in energy from the sun. It is very beneficial for you to stand facing the sun and consciously breathe in deeply, while going through a positive mantra in your head. For example, you breathe in and think 'I am now breathing in sunshine healing every cell of my body.' As you breathe out slowly you think 'I am breathing out all negativity and illness out of every cell of my body.' Do this a few times, slowly and see how wonderful you will feel. Sunshine not only heals, but it purifies as well. It is very beneficial for people who are depressed who usually like to shun sunlight. For the spleen sit or stand with your back to the sun and let it shine full blast on your back to do is work. Remember to keep your thoughts positive. Š Margo Kirtikar Ph.D., all rights reserved.

THE SUN A DEEPER LOOK By Divyaa Kummar Freedom does not translate only into 'doing what you want'. It is the ability to think beyond the horizon, to interpret without past conditioning, to bring into life a fresh viewpoint and thus reality…! In India the Sun's energies are often accessed through the Gayatri Mantra… and yet the Sun is the yang life force, conscious awareness and Spirit itself! And if we dig a little deeper into this we understand that Gayatri is the Suns' feminine yin aspect. Please note that different aspects are not separate parts! Like a rose is pink and soft; but you can't separate a rose and its pinkness and softness, other than in speaking or understanding it! They are o n l y d i ff e r e n t f o c u s e s through which you view the One! Shiva & Shakti, yin& yang, consciousness & energy are thus aspects through which we better understand the Whole! Thus are these aspects (when anthropomorphized), often referred to as consorts or offspring of each other! And with this in mind let us view the Sun and Gayatri… aspects of Spirit indeed! Gayatri is the Divine Intelligence that pervades or is immanent in Spirit! It is what 'allows' Spirit to play the cosmic game of Beingness through her

29 YSR 15


ingenuity of the game of separation and ignorance, so that All That Is may become paradoxically more! It is Divine Intelligence that devises the illusion of its own dissolution so that its Oneness can be truly enjoyed and experienced. It is that aspect of Spirit that 'designs' universes and galaxies and worlds as tools to explore Self… that designs souls and current selves, time and space, the laws of each dimension …so that each individuation thereof intrinsically and inherently fulfills Sprits reason to be! And if you understand the largesse of the game and the gamut of expression that divine intelligence orchestrates…on the 'whim' of Spirit wanting to be…if you view the munificence of its 'design' and detailing of its sacred geometries to accomplish the primal desire to Be… we may better stand in awe of Gayatri! For she is an aspect of V o i d … C o s m i c Mother…Shakti …All That Is…from which the more yang Will to Be arises and in which it rests so naturally because it is indeed permeated by divine intelligence, towards its own fulfillment. And the splendid glorious Sun arises from this feminine aspect of itself and indeed becomes universal life force (thus an aspect of Shiva)…Just as it rises from the seemingly 'nothingness' every

morning on our planet earth and brings 'all' to life! Nature when understood deeply is always symbolic of the macrocosm which it represents! And yet now be aware of the invisibly present Gayatri, Divine Intelligence (aspect of Shakti-void), that permeates every ray and every drop of sunlight, and enables the Sun…Spirit… to shine in all its glory and be the very life force that it is! For the Sun is indeed conscious awareness of That I Am…and in this awareness is it symbolic of being a vital life force! Let us understand how the terms 'awareness' and 'life force' (aspects again) are almost synonymous… and you may even understand the concept of Immaculate Conception! Awareness brings something into being…and in that 'brings' it to life! Take this off the academic blackboard and think of it in your day- to day- terms: when you become aware of what your friend's house looks like…it comes into life for you! When you become aware of a shortcut…it comes into life for you and can you use it! When you become aware of any knowledge or tool it comes into life for you 'within'- and through its reflection- on your 'outside' as your reality! This also why awareness is associated with light- for on our human levels light best describes something coming into being…view… and we come back to nature representing this through the Sun! Or the yang electric energy which, we call electricity…lighting up our rooms! This is also why light is knowledge! And if you glimpse the deeper truth of all of this, surely this is Immaculate Conception? Awareness = giving 'life to'! Awareness = bringing into being a new third 'energy'! And this is truly why the sun is 'life force' even in nature … germinating seeds into growth…each an utterly unique expression of Spirit! Allowing all species on earth to soak with its invisible Divine Intelligence…awareness…so that each may 'be'…That which only they can be for the Whole…Spirit!

29 YSR 16


Also at a deeper level, the 'sun' …'awareness' and its lighting up All That Is…… is not really shining 'outwards' as we may imagine but 'inwards' into the void….becoming aware of and thus bringing to life all that exists within Void! We view creation as something that is propelled outwards but truly there is no 'out' of All That Is! And this original sun is what has been referred to as the central sun, also shown o the Rider Waite Tarot card called 'The Fool' in white…to mark the difference from its reflection in our physical world and what we view as the 'yellow' sun! In ending, let's invoke Spirit, Sun, Shiva, Divine Intelligence, Shakti and their Awareness and Life force through our chakras …gateways to our Mind and Energy Fields… Om bhur bhuva swaha (chakras 1-3 corresponding to each dimension of awareness) Om Maha Jana Tapa Satyam (chakras 47beyond the sun and solar system) Tat Savitur Varenyam (accessing 'higher' realms through higher chakras) Bhargo devasya dheemahi! (accessing Universal consciousness, Shiva- Shakti) Dhiyyona prachodayat... (May we receive...)

The Fire and The Inner Flame By Ellaeenah The Sun plays a greater role in our lives than just as a provider of light. Its radiance reflects the Inner Light of the C o s m i c Christ that resides in every organism on Earth. The rays of the Sun remind us of the Universal Rays that make up our energy structure, and which play such a significant role in making us who we are, and how we think, feel, react and respond. Through the hundreds of Esoteric Astro Charts that I have

29 YSR 17


drawn up, I have come to realize that the Sun, as a Luminary, and the Universal Rays play a key part in unlocking for us the secrets that lie within our persona. The two can combine with the other planets to reveal to us our past patterns, our current goals and purposes, and the joyous future that our spirit strives towards on each step of our cosmic journey. And yet the Sun is taken for granted by the majority. The position of the Sun in our natal charts is vital to reveal to us our greatest strengths and our most challenging

weaknesses. Ancient cultures, which were deeply connected to the heart of Mother Gaia and to the mind of the Cosmic Father, had realised that it is the Sun that gathers and filters the energies of our Cosmic Care takers. They knew that within the fiery core of Sol lies our very existence. Its light represents our consciousness, and its radiation our reaching out to others. Scientists, ancient and modern, are striving hard to understand the solar flares, for the recorded strength of these energetic eruptions humbles even the most intelligent mind. Many know of the power of the Moon to affect the mind and psyche of a human being, but few appreciate the even stronger psychological effect of the Sun. Are you aware that the quickest way of bringing on depression (called SAD!!) is to deny a person the light of the Sun for a consistently long time? Even when depression is not related to the absence of the Sun, it can be relieved to quite a significant extent by the therapeutic properties of a gentle basking in the Sun for about an hour each day (to be done in the earlier hours of the morning). The best way to do this is to lie down on cool green grass, or on cool soft sand, and allow the gentle light of the Sun to irradiate you, and remove the negative energies collected as debris in your energy matrix. Close your eyes and for a few moments at a time focus on any one part of the emotional, mental or physical, that causes you pain and discomfort. Focusing on this is like bringing it up to the light of the Sun, and allowing the light to clear the resistance and pain of the experience. All the while breathe very deeply and very slowly. Visualize the rays entering every dark corner and crevice of your emotional, mental and physical bodies and flooding it with enlightenment and illumination.

29 YSR 18


Breathe the sunlight into your pineal, pituitary, adrenal and thymus glands. Allow it to flood your entire musculature‌.all your bones and joints. Remember the joints hold on to a lot of toxins which cause arthritis, rheumatism and the like. Visualize the light streaming and flowing with your blood as it courses strongly through your veins and arteries. Let it enter and irradiate your spinal cord, and all the organs of your body. The light of the Sun holds within its warm embrace, all the vitamins we need and is the strongest 'energy pill' that you can take each morning. When your physical body has been rejuvenated, turn your attention to the sacred fire of Christ Consciousness that burns within you and allow the light of the Sun to enrich and energize it. End the spiritual basking session with the loud intonation of the Gayatri Mantra. Allow the energies of the mantra to swirl within your root chakra and the Solar plexus Chakra. At least three times a week follow a gentle routine of stretching and bending in the very gentle light of the Sun, either in the morning or evening. Sunset is an excellent time to unwind and to release all the pressures of the day. Allow your eyes to gently focus upon the setting sun and pay close attention to your outbreath. Breathe out all the tensions and stresses of the day and visualize them ebbing with the Sun, disappearing out of the horizon of your reality. The Gayatri Mantra was first recorded in the Rig Veda over 3000 years ago and has only grown in strength through all the years of collective chanting. It has the ability to illuminate, to protect, to destroy threat and harm, to clarify, to enrich and to empower. If you are not one to chant hymns and to pray for long hours in a day, then the chanting of the short Gayatri Mantra is all you need. Gayatri represents the abundance of the physical world, the richness of the

spiritual world and the wisdom of the Cosmic Core of Eternal Consciousness. The energies of the Sun makes us vibrant, makes us shine, leads us to laughter, makes us cheerful, and brings the feeling of inner warmth. When someone is in need, when a child is crying and you hold that child to your heart and give him 'emotional warmth', what you are doing is radiating the Sun within you. You are becoming the Sun for this child, whose world might be in darkness. When you give a gift to someone, who least expects it, and you see their eyes light up with joy, what you have done is emanated the rays of the Sun. When you show someone the way when they are lost, when you show someone direction, again you are this same beacon of light. Let each sunrise remind you of the Light Within that cannot be contained but must be radiated outwards, and allow each sunset to remind you of the need to turn your eye inwards, to hold yourself in warmth and acceptance, to nurture your core, so that the spark of self-love flames into a compelling fire of universal love. “Aum Bhoor Bhuwah Swaha, Tat Savitur Varenyam,....Bhargo Devasaya Dheemahi, Dhiyo Yo Naha Prachodayat” © Ellaeenah, all rights reserved.

Shine your Radiant Light By C J Martes “God is the Sun and when His rays fall upon your heart, not impeded by the clouds of egoism, the lotus blooms and the petals unfold.” –Sai Baba

Your heart is the most powerful thing you possess. When you share your heart with others, it illuminates the entire world. This radiant light is inherent to who you are as a human and spiritual being. You can look up and see the sun shining in the day sky. The sun shares its warm light with the you and the entire earth. It allows life giving plants to grow and flourish. Without that light the world would be a barren, desolate place. Your inner spiritual essence is much like the lifegiving sun. If you are not careful you may take that life energy for granted. Next time you walk outside,

29 YSR 20


allow yourself to stop for a moment, close your eyes and turn your face to the sun. Feel its warmth on your face. Imagine this light energy radiating to every part of your body. Believe that you radiate in a similar fashion. Your light permeates everything you do. Your radiance is the most important thing you can share with the world. Your spiritual energy radiates your heart essence to everyone around you much like the sun does the earth. This light shares love with everyone regardless of who they are. Sharing your energy is inherent to who you really are and is done effortlessly without even trying. You have a much greater capability of shining your light than you may realize. Do not be afraid to

engage life with vigorous joy and radiance. Joy and happiness spread sunshine to everyone around you. Think of those you love and how you might make yours and their day special. You have such an important role to play in the world you live in. Your light can change the world around you without even trying. The more you enjoy and experience life to the fullest, the more light you have to shine. Your thoughts and intentions are very important as well. Being conscious of your intentions can generate a much greater light than you normally do each day by being who you are. Being positive about life and allowing that to shape your actions can quickly spread to everything you do. Your radiance expands exponentially with increased positive intention. If you think it, you can do it. Likewise if you have cloudy, dark thoughts these will permeate your light and damper it. Sit quietly sometime and visualize a profound light emanating from your heart center. Imagine that light spreading completely through your body. Envision it spreading through your house. Then see it spreading outward in all directions filling your neighborhood and beyond. Get in touch with your spiritual radiance and understand that the light comes from deep within you. Think about what simple things you can do to change the world. When you commit yourself to altruistic actions you can affect positive change in such a powerful way. Do not doubt that you can. Direct your intention to those things which make your world a better place. You have tremendous ability to share your radiance with others through the positive choices you make. Your thoughtful choices each day dictate how much or how little you are able to radiate your light to others. You can choose unconditional love or you can place many conditions on it. Fear can make

29 YSR 21


you choose the latter. You will have times when you experience fear. What do you fear? Fear restricts you from making choices that are in your highest good of yourself and others. Fear can keep you immobilized. When you experience fear, your light is hidden. When you have times of great happiness and joy, you get in touch with who you are. Take care of yourself. Do whatever will make you the most happy. You can simply lose yourself when not being true to who you are. Happiness from deep within you allows your radiance to shine forth. Have you ever been with someone who simply elevates the entire room when they enter it? With your thoughtful choices you can be that type of person. Everyone loves to be in the presence of such a person. A person is truly beautiful when they are overflowing with their full radiance and light. You can be such a person each and everyday. Some ways of sharing your radiance with yourself: Be light hearted with life Just because things do not go your way does not mean the experience was a loss. Take a walk in the sunshine Take time to enjoy your life. It is precious and should not be squandered with things you “should do” or “have to” do. Give a gift to yourself whenever possible You can only be good to others when you can be good to yourself. Some ways of sharing your radiance with others: Share a smile with a stranger A simple smile can do wonders for a person’s day. It is the simple things that sometimes matter most.

Write someone a note expressing love How often do you take a small bit of time to let others really know you care? Use laughter as the best medicine When you can laugh with others you can make the world brighter. Share a part of yourself with someone Life can be so busy that you may forget to speak your truth and share yourself in all areas of your life. There are so many opportunities each day to share your radiance. Choose to be like the sun and shine light into the world. You can make a difference so choose to be radiant, joyful and be aware of who you really are! Š C J Martes, all rights reserved

THE SOUL OF THE RISING SUN By Prabhath P. The Villagers were pure. Not only the human beings of the Village, but all the living beings there, were the incarnations of Innocence. But Sorrow and Poverty could never think of leaving that Village. Of course, the Villagers did try hard to exile both of them far beyond the frontiers, but failed miserably in that attempt. Even while dragging their dreary lives, there was

29 YSR 23


something that filled the Villagers with happiness. The Rising Sun! Every infant, every boy and girl, every young man and woman, every old man and woman dreamed of the sun rising at the Dawn, escorted by a fresh and caressing breeze. The dreams of the Rising Sun swept the sands, air, birds, trees and everything into an ecstasy. It is doubtful whether the Village had ever heard of the Rising Sun during its early history. They had their first ideas about the Rising Sun from the poets and

singers who came to the village from somewhere. Their poems that pictured the spectacular scenes of the Dawn, sent vibrations through the Soul of the Village. The singers sang of the shining orb of Light that majestically arrives from the multicoloured sky at the Eastern Horizon in a magnificent chariot driven by hundreds of thousands of golden horses. Those fantastic songs rained like honey in the eardrums of the Villagers. For them, who knew only the fierce noon sun who burned their souls with redhot rays, this was entirely a novel experience. But they, who waited for the stirring sights of the Dawn that could make a million flowers blossom in their minds, did not succeed. You might think that it was the geographical position of the Village that prevented them from seeing Sunrise. No! Not at all! It is doubtful whether there is any other place in this wide world, which is more suitable than the Village for watching Sunrise. So was it because the Villagers failed to get up early? That too is not true. Not a single day, when the Village failed to awaken from sleep before the Pole Star appeared, has been recorded in history. Then why did they fail to see Sunrise? Dark Clouds! No! Not those who come to give at least a drop of water to quench the thirst of the Earth. These were clouds that covered the sky like a pitchblack curtain, spreading a sickening darkness in the atmosphere. The Clouds were usually accompanied by blinding lightning and ear-shattering thunder. Everyday, near the moment of Sunrise, the Villagers will go to the shores of the Big Blue Ocean, who had the special ability to play any kind of role, like being calm or extremely angry. But what they saw was not the Rising Sun. Instead they saw endless columns of Clouds reminding them of black Ghosts. The troops of Clouds took special care not to allow even a slight ray of the Sun to sneak out of the wall they had built up. The Leader of the Clouds will shout through

29 YSR 24


thunder to the depressed Villagers. “You Villagers! Go and do your jobs without wasting precious time. You know the poets and singers. They are frauds. The Rising Sun is not so beautiful as they'd like to have you believe. We've seen this Sun. You people will all become blind if you happen to see the light of that Sun. The rays of the Rising Sun are coloured. They will induce hallucinations and drive you mad. We are staying here to save you from this grave danger. You understand one thing. We are your saviours, your security guards. Without us, this Village has no existence.” The Clouds will stay there till noon. And they allow the noon sun to pour its heart out with rays that could vapourise the life-blood. But who can love the noon sun? It is not possible. How could the Villagers love the noon sun who burns their crops and turns their wells into waterless pits of scorching sand? The Leader of the Clouds offered a concession. “See the setting sun if you want.” But the Villagers who hated that very word 'sunset' declined. Months and years kept flying away without waiting to rest. No change was there in the condition of the Village. But during these years the Villagers grasped fully, the truth that the dark Clouds were not their saviours because they were witnessing the number of people who died due to thunder and lightning, shooting up year by year. So many lives were also lost to the horrible heat of the noon sun. Though the Villagers requested several times that they be allowed to see the Rising Sun at least once, the Dark Clouds didn't even take it at face value. In these hopeless circumstances, some of the Youth of the Village had a brainwave. After getting the permission of the Elders, they met the Birds of the Village. “Dear Birds, we know you love this Village. We want you to do us a favour. Please fly to the Eastern Horizon at the time of Sunrise and return after having a glimpse of at least a single ray of the Sun of our

dreams. We'll be grateful to you forever.” Next morning, a flock of Birds flew up into the sky towards the spot where the Sun was supposed to rise. But just when it seemed they were closing in, the Eastern Horizon kept moving away and away. Even those birds experienced in long distance flight, felt their wings becoming weary. The Blue Ocean howled in mocking laughter. The waves started a dirty dance. But in the minds of the Birds, there was only one thought. The promise given to the Villagers. The Birds reached the black Clouds. Is there any tiny ray of Light peeping out? No! Only Darkness! Some of the Birds tried to pierce the Clouds. All of a sudden, came thunder and lightning as if the world was going to end. Some Birds fell down dead. Those who saved themselves from thunder and lightning continued their efforts courageously. Shockwaves shot threw their hearts! Like Death in flesh and blood, a gang of dreadful Vultures came out of the Dark Clouds. Even before they had an opportunity to cry out, those innocent Birds went down in a hundred pieces. With a horrible roar, the Blue Ocean swallowed those lifeless bodies. The Villagers watched the sight with frozen blood. Though they wanted to wail as loud as they can, the sound got trapped in their throats. They shuddered when thunder reverberated in their ears. “Go back! Every one of you! Immediately! These Birds received the punishment they deserved. They tried to mislead you. Remember this fact. Even now, we saved you.” The Villagers who did not have the guts to say anything against the Clouds walked back with shivering feet. If a single word happened to drop from anyone's mouth, they might become the next victims of the Vultures. A group of Birds planned to make another attempt. But their calculations went awry. Vultures

29 YSR 25


raided the nests of the Birds. Death danced in destruction. The Birds who were fortunate enough to escape, flew away for their dear lives. That Village then became a nightmare for the avian species. Even migratory Birds, who entered the Village unaware of the gory events, were brutally butchered by the Vultures. The people barely managed to push their ghostly lives in that accursed Village. They had lost Bird songs too. The Villagers only buried their anguish and simmering anger at the fate of being confined to a place where even the Birds had no freedom to fly. They did not know how to express it. Seasons came and went. But the Village didn't feel any seasonal changes at all. On that day also, the Villagers woke up before the Pole Star. The Sky was still sleeping inside the blanket of Black Clouds. A scene they see everyday. Some sour sighs crawled out of the innermost depths of the Village. But a few people sensed a strange change enveloping the atmosphere. An unusually strong Wind was sweeping through the Village. How did this Wind break through the walls of the Dark Clouds? The Villages wondered. They found a comfortable cool feeling. With jumping hearts, they saw the hands of the Wind trying to save the sky from the Black Cloud cover! They also saw some Vultures fumbling in the fierce flow of air. Many Vultures lost balance and smashed themselves into giant trees. As if they got an uncanny intuition, the Villagers set out fast towards the shore of the Big Blue Ocean. Is it smiling?! Instead of snatching them to terrible whirlpools, the waves were competing to kiss the feet of all those who reached the shore! Tens of thousands of eyes turned towards the Eastern Horizon. Yes! It is true! Eyes are not deceiving them! From the farthest point of the eastern horizon, terrified Clouds are running away! Some soft glitter is out there! What is it?! Hearts started beating very fast. They saw an ethereal ray of Light coming out. The Rising Sun! Dearest Sun! The number of rays

increased. Yellow and red rays intermingled. Like a golden coin, a magnificent orb of Light slowly slowly coming up from the depths of the Blue Ocean! The beatific beauty of that vision is beyond words. A dignified yet musical voice echoed throughout the Village. The sweet speech of the Rising Sun! “My Dearest Village! My Beloved Pure Souls! We waited for a long long time for this meeting. Though I don't want to lessen the glory of this blessed moment, I must tell you. This rendezvous is only temporary. I can't defeat the Dark Clouds everyday. Today, because of the support of a strong Wind, I could destroy the Dark Clouds. But the Clouds are powerful. They'll return with reinforcements. If you want to witness the Sunrise everyday throughout the year, you should also do your part. None of you is weak. Live volcanoes are there inside your souls! Try to recognise your own power. Look there at the shore of the Blue Ocean! With wide-open eyes, the Villagers looked. A shining globe of Light was there at the Ocean shore! “Fear not my friends! It is my Soul! The Soul of the Rising Sun! My energy is embedded in it. It is the essence of my Power and Glory. Go! Share it among yourselves! It is made of millions and millions of small suns. They'll empower you to wipe out the arrogant Black Clouds from this Village. These Small Suns will start explosions in the volcanoes. In the red hot flood of Lava, the Black Clouds and Vultures will burn to death. You too have now become Small Suns! With determination and peace of mind, you can return to the Village. Prepare yourself for the fight to pave my path, to begin life everyday with the vision of the Rising Sun! The Age when this Village will bathe in the beauty of the Dawn, day by day, is not far in the future!” In the souls of the Villagers, the Soul of the Rising Sun sparkled. They too became suns, turned into Infinite indescribable waves of throbbing

God is Creative Cause By Dr. Norm Williams “You may call that which creates and sustains the world God … but ultimately you are the proof that God exists, not the other way around.” Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj Many people believe that God is outside of them (often referred to as “the big guy in the sky”) to be called upon to solve their problems whatever they may be. They do not recognize God's indwelling presence within them and the facility it provides for them to transcend life's challenges, and, hence,

29 YSR 27


shape their lives. God is Creative Energy that is the source of all visible reality: human beings, animals, trees, plants, etc. And the Bible teaches that God is Spirit. As Plato put it, “There could be no body, no visible reality, unless there is first Spirit as creative cause.” There's only one God in the Universe, one source of all the different forms of life as we know them. And, as creative energy, God is the cause of everything in the Universe as well as the power that sustains them. God is Wisdom and Intelligence. All the wisdom and

intelligence that exist in the Universe represent God. Humanity is the most complete expression of God. “In his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” You were created by God because He wants to express Himself through you. He's Omnipresent; therefore, He must be in you. Hence, He's a part of your being. He's all in all, so you must be in Him. He's Spirit and you were made in His image and likeness; hence, you are spirit. The reality underlying everything is God. Every thing is one and the same Spirit manifesting in different ways. The various forms of life are one life. All the wisdom in the world is God manifesting in different ways. He is in every human being as infinite wisdom waiting to be brought forth into physical manifestation. God, the source of our existence, is not only Omnipresent, He's Omnipresence. He is both Omnipotent and Omnipotence. God is not merely Omniscient, He's Omniscience. Everything that you can think of in its absolute perfect form is God. You are a three-part being consisting of Spirit, body and soul. Both the Spirit and the body are clothed in the soul. The Spirit is your innermost being, the absolute part of you. It never changes though your circumstances and thoughts are changeable. It is the Christ in you, the God in visibility. The substance of God is the unchanging principle at the core of your existence. It is the divine or real self that is spiritual and perfect and which cannot be seen on the physical plane. Your body is your visible mortal part. It has a brain. Your body's brain has a mind, your rational mind. And your Spirit has a mind as wellthe real mind. The former is changeable because it gathers information through the five senses: sight (visual),

hearing (auditory), touch (tactile), smell (olfactory) and taste (gustatory). The unchanging mind of the Spirit represents life. It is the Divine Mind and it represents your consciousness. Our own individual minds are connected to God's. Therefore, there is only one mind and that is God'sthe Universal Mind. God did not only create us He is the fountain of life that abides in us. He is the ever present Intelligence that fills our minds. God is our inexhaustible supply of spiritual and material blessings; He's both the Giver and the Gift. In trusting in God as your all He will see to it that everything that you desire comes to you. This Truth is in accord with the Bible's teachings, “What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” God resides in you. Therefore, your own indwelling spirit provides all the wisdom, courage, peace, joy, health, and strength that you desire. We were created in the image and likeness of God. Therefore, we have things in common with Him. In the case of our spirit, it differs from His only by degree because a part must be the same in kind and quality as the whole. Consider this analogy. One drop of water from the ocean is the same as the ocean water as a whole in terms of its molecular structure, physical, and chemical properties. The difference lies only in the quantity. Similarly, as individual manifestations of God, each one of us contains the whole which is God. However, like the drop of water, we don't consider each individual to be God in the entirety but as God taking form in some degree. Therefore, like God, we have the power to bring into visible form that which we conceive of in our thoughts.

Until you become aware that God is not to be found afar off but that He dwells in you, the Christ is “asleep in you.” When you have “awakened” the Christ within you, a great calm will come over you. You will come to understand that the God in you will help you to overcome any difficulty that you may encounter and will bring peace and harmony to the situation. However, to achieve this end, you must focus on the Christ in you and not that within anyone else. By doing so, you're working with God to raise your level of consciousness above the obstacles in your path so that you can become, do, and have whatever you want in this world. © Dr. Norm Williams, all rights reserved.

Spiritual Tolerance By Gordon Wayne Tolerance is an excellent spiritual value, especially in our complex, diverse global village. The utopian ideal is the capacity to tolerate anything and everything, which would theoretically include the absurd willingness to tolerate daily torture. Obviously, the utopian ideal is a grand delusion that might have some hypothetical applicability in a theoretically perfect universe inhabited by supposedly perfect pious souls. We though are imperfect beings living in an imperfect world where we cannot afford to encourage psychopaths, so we really should not and must not tolerate torture.

29 YSR 30


Besides such obviously intolerable activities, tolerance is still an important and valuable virtue simply because our world is diverse and complex. More important, human nature is incredibly diverse and complex, such that we will do things of which others disapprove and others will do things of which we disapprove. For example, some people may believe that we should dance naked in the local park while others may believe we should wear heavy woolen garments while strolling through the park. With the potential for endless contradictory desires, customs, beliefs, and ambitions, tolerance becomes an important virtue though we need some practical limitations.

Essentially, if something does not cause physical or psychological injury, tolerance is prudent, but if something causes physical or psychological harm, then tolerance is imprudent. Regarding torture, the primary objective is to induce serious physical and psychological damage, even permanent harm, so tolerance is foolhardy. Dancing naked in the park does not cause physical or psychological harm so showing a little tolerance toward exuberant naturalists does no harm. Wearing heavy woolen garments especially on hot summer days may result in overheating so imposing this on active people is inadvisable. Naturally, some people will argue that dancing naked in the local park violates public decency while others will argue that nudity is perfectly natural. Either way, arguments regarding nudity are beliefs that cannot cause serious physical or psychological harm to anybody unless somebody believes they can use violence to impose their beliefs on others. Whatever we choose to believe concerning nudity, we can attach the conviction that we should show a little tolerance toward those with different convictions, which introduces a new challenge. That challenge is how we can coexist when we have different beliefs, which is possible if we grant each other time and space to exist while patiently awaiting our turn. Tolerance is an important virtue especially in our metropolitan cities where millions of people conduct their business without much overt concern for another's business. Some people want to fly kites in the local park while others want to sunbathe; some people to throw frisbees, some want a quiet picnic, and others want to toss a ball; some want to create a community park, some want to build a shopping plaza, some want an apartment building, and others want an office complex. Due to the diverse neighborhoods, organizations, institutions, enterprises, and interests, tolerance is an invaluable

virtue inside our modern cosmopolitan cities. Without tolerance, different groups will clash and the rising tensions may lead to riots during which zealous characters may injure people or damage property. With tolerant citizens, our cities run smoothly, primarily because people allow their neighbors to go about their business without unnecessary interference. Spiritually, we should tolerate the idiosyncracies of our neighbors, friends, and family members unless their conduct is threatening to cause serious physical or psychological harm. For a greater spiritual challenge, we can show a little tolerance toward those with different convictions and customs, perhaps attending their events and activities periodically. In other words, Christians should consider worshiping with Buddhists periodically and vice versa, Taoists should consider worshiping with Mormons occasionally and vice versa, etcetera. Alternatively, Muslims can welcome Hindus into their neighborhood, Hindus can welcome Jews into their neighborhoods, Jews can welcome Confucians into their neighborhoods, Confucians can welcome Catholics into their neighborhoods, etcetera. Tolerance makes life a little easier, and preserves our energy for serious problems rather than expending valuable energy over matters that cause no physical or psychological harm. More important though, tolerance is a necessary virtue because history proves one inescapable fact of human nature, namely that somebody somewhere will do something we consider bizarre.
