“The energies of the Sun are positive and act favorably on people. The earth energies are negative and act unfavorably on people. The former energies help humanity to rise, and the latter to descend. Try to tune into the energies that come from above.
“The first violinist in nature is the Sun. The first ray of the sun is the first aria. … The sun is a book, and God write something new in it every day.
“Light is a sign of love. When the sun shines on us that shows that God is sending us light. …
“The Divine world has only one direction, only one point, one source from which all things proceed. This point is called ‘the Eternal East,’ the point of the eternally rising Sun.” ~Biensa Douno
Positive and Negative Energies
While it is essentially true to say that solar energy is positive and earth energy is negative, it can be misleading to put it that way. For one thing, it seems to imply that if one leaves the Earth, he would leave negative energies behind. But there are, in fact, negative energies on the moon, on Mars, on all planets. There may even be negative energies in the sun and the stars, but they are not as strong as the positive ones.
To put it more accurately, there are positive energies that pull us up. Up towards Heaven and higher levels of consciousness. Up towards God. There are also energies that pull us down toward matter and death. That is why it’s a struggle to grow. But we can resist those energies that pull us down. We can also help by taking in energy from the spiritual sun to help pull us up. We also attune better to the higher energies by being positive and living according to the laws of God and nature rather than those of greedy and power-hungry men.
Music in the Sun
Douno is speaking allegorically when he says the sun is the first violin and the first aria. What he is saying is that the beneficial energies coming from the spiritual sun sooth us and awaken us much like good music does. Nonetheless, people do often report hearing pleasant music in their heads while doing spiritual sun gazing techniques. It may sound like violins or harps, which is probably how the idea of angels playing harps started. Others report pleasant scents like tropical flowers coming from the sun. Not surprisingly, the ancient god Apollo was not only god of the sun, but god of music and prophecy as well.
Book in the Sun
Again, Douno is not speaking literally. He is saying that the sun, especially the spiritual sun, is a source of information. He is saying we can gain great knowledge by “reading” this “book”. What makes this book special is that it updates automatically with the latest changes in the universe. It also automatically reveals to us only what we are ready to receive and comprehend. So two people can be sun-gazing at the same time and in the same place, yet receive different information from that “book”. The other magical thing about this source of information is that it contains only truth. Not opinion, not agreed-upon beliefs, but truth. Of course, the sun is not where this information originates. It starts with God, then is sent by His light into the suns and stars of the universe.
If that all sounds a little crazy and unscientific, consider this. Modern science, specifically quantum physics, says the universe is really just a great hologram. Further, the scientists say, the light in that hologram carries information. So science has figured out what the spiritual teachers have known for centuries.
Light is Love
Yes, light is love because it is God’s love for us that causes Him to send that spiritual light with the power to redeem us. Of course, we do have to choose to be redeemed and work at it. We have all heard people being said to glow when they are in love. And the halos of saints are the light of God’s love shining on them and through them.
The Divine Light has one direction and one source. One could argue that the light must move in all direction out from the source. But what Douno is saying, is that “outward” is one direction. There would be no point to light looping back to the source, which is God. On the other hand, that Divine Light is the true stairway to heaven. So if we want to return there, we must accept that light and follow it back to the Source.
