sun of ideas

Sun of Ideas, Discoveries, and Philosophies

“When you want to benefit from the energies of nature, receive them directly from the source and not indirectly. For instance when you want to use solar energy, go out and receive it directly from its source and not through glasses or lenses.

“Love as the Sun loves. When it rises, it sends forth light to all living beings—ugly and beautiful, small and great.

“The heart of our solar system is the Sun. The rhythmical movements of blood in the human heart are determined by the rhythmical waves of the Sun. Therefore, when the heart of man functions improperly, this is a symptom that he has violated his relationship with the Sun—the heart of the solar system where he lives.

“The Sun is the bearer of new ideas, new discoveries,new philosophies, a new religion and a new science. The Sun is going to sweep aside everything old; it will consume the old and turn it into dust. The Sun will bring to earth a pure and sublime life. For whom will this be so? For the souls that are ready. The soul that is ready is like a bud that is waiting for the Sun to shine. Whe it does, the bud will open into blossom.” ~Biensa Douno

Benefit from Nature

There are many ways to benefit from regular contact with nature, or the natural environment. We can aid our physical health in a number of ways by simply removing our shoes and walking barefoot on the earth. Or you can just sit in a chair with your bare feet on the ground. For more on that concept, read the book Earthing.

Another way to benefit from nature is to observe wild animals. If you are gentle enough, loving enough, you might even be able to make friends with some of them. And don’t forget the plant kingdom. There are indeed benefits to tree-hugging. Old trees may have much wisdom hidden within them that they might share with one who makes friends with them without demands or expectations.

But as Douno notes, the most significant way to benefit from contact with nature is through contact with the sun. Both the physical sun and the spiritual Sun can benefit us (I believe that when master Douno capitalized “Sun,” he is speaking of the spiritual sun).

In recent decades, we have been told by many, especially the drug pushers, to avoid sunlight. “It will melt your face,” they say. “It will give you cancer, or dandruff, or tough skin1,” they warn. And many who listened are now suffering from a shortage of vitamin D which can lead to a number of health problems. Some have learned from the mistake of hiding from the sun. Other take vitamin D pills instead (Sigh!). In truth, the sun shining on us is just about as beneficial as the sun shining on flowers and trees.

The spiritual sun is another matter. It is of benefit to the spirit and soul, not the physical body. It is more than a benefit. The light of the spiritual sun is necessary for the good health of the spirit and soul. And the easiest way to awaken a sleeping soul is with the light of the spiritual sun. One effect is felt on the physical level. It is the light of this sun, coupled with the light of the physical sun, that awakens the pineal gland, sometimes called the third eye.

Heart Sun

The sun is the heart of the solar system. There are some who still disbelieve that, but the foolishness is of no concern to the rest of us. We shrug off their silliness and move on.

While our sun is the heart of the solar system, it is not the heart of the universe. There are many stars, many suns. Some of those suns are much larger, and much more powerful than our sun. Yet is remains our sun we should turn to for light, both physical and spiritual. There are two reasons for that. Turning to other stars for energy is pointless because they are so much further away that only a miniscule amount of their energy reaches us. The other reason is that the stars share light, energy, and knowledge with each other. So the light of our own sun is the light of all suns.

Sun of Ideas

A sun of Ideas? Whoever heard of such a thing? A sun of ideas and philosophies? Nonsense!

But it isn’t nonsense. It is all very true if you are referring to the spiritual sun. The light of the Sun carries what we in Cosolargy call “Information Factors”. This means simply that light is a carrier of information. While that may sound unbelievable to many, just consider how radio carrier waves can carry with them music, news, an episode of “Little Orphan Annie”. Light is a carrier wave just as much as radio waves. And the light of the spiritual sun carries spiritual knowledge that few know how to receive, and even fewer can understand. Sometimes, those light waves from the sun of ideas inspire inventors, musicians, writers and creative people of all sorts. It is the muse of muses. For many others, it may simply affect your dreams, causing you to see things differently. It may even allow you to see some future events, usually, so you can either prevent them or prepare for them. A sun of ideas is a powerful teacher, a great guru. And think how much more you would gain from that sun of ideas if you turned ti it and took in its light with intent and a desire to learn with no accepted beliefs to filter out the truth. If we all started turning to that sun at dawn, and taking in that knowledge from the sun of ideas, we would soon have that promised golden age that most of us want. An age of peace, love, and good health for all.

three kingdoms

Three Kingdoms of Man: Mind, Body, Spirit

“Thus we are to consider, and highly to know in the Light of Nature, the ground of the Kingdom of Heaven, and of Hell, as also the ground of the Kingdom of this World, and how Man in the Mother’s Body inherits three kingdoms, and how Man in this life bears a threefold image, which out first parents by the first sin inherited for us; therefore we have need of the Treader upon the Serpent, to bring us again into the angelic Image. And it is needful for Men to tame his body and mind, [or bring them under subjection,] with great earnestness [and labor,] and to admit himself under the Cross, and not to hunt so eagerly after pleasure, riches, and the bravery of this world, for therein sticks perdition.” ~Jakob Boehme

Light of Nature

To most of us, light is light. We don’t think of there being multiple types of light. If we do, it is artificial light and natural light that we think of. But there is a third kind. That is spiritual light. What Boehme is saying here is that natural light is associated with the physical world. So when spiritual people tell you to turn to the light, enter the light, he saw the light, or some such declaration, they do not mean this light of nature. They mean the light of spirit that comes to us through the spiritual sun.

Man in Mother’s Body

This statement should not be taken too literally. It doesn’t refer to man as a fetus. It means man in Mother Nature’s Body. In other words, it means physical man, the man of earth. This man is only a part of the complete man. We are very complex beings. In addition to the physical body and brain-mind, we have a psychic (or astral) body, and a spiritual body and soul. Those levels come not from Mother Nature, but from God. Continue reading “Three Kingdoms of Man: Mind, Body, Spirit”

thought vibration

Thought Vibration and Dealing with It

“In the first place, though we are constantly affected more or less by the multitude of psychic vibrations beating upon us, still the greater part of them do not consciously impress us. For an example, we have but to consider how few of the sounds or sights of a busy street are impressed upon our consciousness. We here and see only a few of the things which attract our attention and interest. The rest are lost to us, although our eyes and ears receive them all. In the same way, we are impressed only by the stronger vibrations which reach us, and then only by those which we have attracted to ourselves, or which prove attractive to us by reason of our own likes and dislikes.

“In the second place, the effect of certain thought vibrations is neutralized by the effect of the vibrations of thoughts of an opposite character. Just as a mixture of black and white produces the neutral color of gray.” ~William Walker Atkinson

Psychic Thought Vibration

Thoughts do create energy, and energy does work. The idea that you can make anything you want become real, known today as “manifesting,” is popular. The quote concentrates more on how incoming thought energy affects each of us.

Could you imagine how horrible it would be if every thought we received was allowed to affect our behavior? The guy across the street thinks that he needs to go to the library, and the thought hits you and you turn and head to the library. But you only get a few feet, and another thought hits you and you turn to the donut shop instead. Then before reaching Donut Dude’s, you jump into a cab and head off to work because of another thought picked up. At this rate, you would never get anywhere. Fortunately, it doesn’t work like that.

Just as street noise gets all mixed together into a fairly neutral drone that we hardly notice, the thoughts of hundreds of other people bombarding our subconscious mind constantly become so mixed together they become jumbled and meaningless. That is a good thing. The only thoughts that do have an effect are those which we strongly agree with, and those that are sent with must stronger energy than average.

Universal Thought Vibration

So many people today have fallen for the idea that the universe exists for no other purpose than to be our servant and do whatever we want it to do. And, of course, it will do that without any charge whatsoever.

If a person standing on a street corner in a city is bombarded with the conflicting thoughts of hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals, think how much more confused it is for this being they call “the universe”. Billions of people are sending thoughts out into the universe. Yet, the universe, which is believed to be able to do anything, is supposed to sort them all out and make them all happen. What happens when they conflict? If a thousand are wishing to be president, they can’t all get their wish granted. How doe this Mr. Universe decide?

The Universe is Conscious

If you do believe that this Universe can do such wonderful things than you have to believe that this Universe is intelligent, conscious. That, at least, is true. In fact, the Universe, which is just the name some people use for God when they fear religion for some reason, is All Consciousness. The source and be-all of consciousness. We are mere bricks in the wall of consciousness. The universe is the entire wall. So guess what? If that great consciousness wants something to happen, it will. It doesn’t have to get your permission. It doesn’t care if it conflicts with your personal wishes. It’s thought vibration creates everything. And Universe will do exactly as it pleases. It isn’t because it is bossy or arrogant. It is because it is all-knowing. When you know everything, you know what is the right thing to do in any situation. So God/Universe does what it knows should be done. It takes no orders from us. But if you do want God’s help, here is the way to get the help you need. Say “God, (Universe, if you prefer) give me what I most need at this time.”

“But,” you might ask, “what about those who insist that manifesting their thought vibrations has worked for them on several occasions.” The answer is that it is often just a coincidence. But when it is really manifesting, the one granting your wish isn’t God, the Universe, or even a genie. It’s the Devil or Demiurge. This is especially true if you are asking for material things. The Lord of matter, called the Demiurge by Gnostics, is happy to grant such wishes. And put it on your tab. And when He decides your bill is due and he comes to collect, he will choose what he wants in payment, not you.

sun life

Sun Life and the New Golden Age

“Through the changing relations of the Sun, there appears now in the human being himself, as has been already indicated, a change in the conditions of life. Things so shape themselves that when the human being is dominated by the Sun influence, he devotes himself more to the Sun life and its phenomena than to himself. At such times he feels the greatness and glory of the universe; he, so to speak, absorbs them. Those very exalted beings who dwell on the Sun then influence the Moon, which again influences human beings. … It is then that the physical and the etheric bodies attain a definitive size and form. … Man gave himself up to the enjoyment of the universe in a kind of Sun life. During this period he was carried beyond his own life; he lived more spiritually. … He felt as though the forces of the universe were streaming into him.” ~Rudolf Steiner

Relations of the Sun

In the quote, Steiner is writing about ages in the distant past. He calls one such age the Sun eon, and another the moon eon. But just about everything he says in the quote can be equally applied to shorter, more recent periods of time. In fact, it can be applied to a single day, but to different individuals living as either Sun people or Moon people.

We have always had a close relationship with the sun. But in recent centuries, we have been convinced to push that connection aside in one way or another. Centuries ago, it as done mostly through religion. The state-approved churches put down any forms of sun gazing as pagan sun worship. They preached that anyone who did such a thing would never be welcomed in heaven. But simply because a religious or spiritual practice predates Christianity does not mean it is wrong.

Change in Conditions

While the practitioners of modern Astrology often exaggerate the influence stars ad planets have on us, they are correct in saying that they do have an influence. The locations and conditions of the sun, moon, stars, and planets all change the conditions of the world we live in. When the conditions change, they change us. But they do not force us to behave in any particular way. They only guide us toward certain things, for better or worse.

Sun Life

In Steiner’s ancient cosmology, a sun age came first, then a moon age. The sun age was more spiritual, the moon age more materialistic. This sun age ended long ago. The moon age of materialism is still happening.

In that sun age, man’s life was different. We did not have the dense physical bodies we have now. Because our bodies were almost pure spirit, we didn’t need to eat matter to survive. We lived on energy, on spiritual light. In the sun age, we were as concerned about others as we were about ourselves. We did things to benefit all rather than doing just what benefited ourselves. We shared everything we had with friends and family. The idea that we owned anything made no sense to us at all. The whole concept of ownership was unknown.

Moon Life

But dark beings and influences got to us. They convinced some to start consuming matter. They convinced some to start claiming ownership of things. Before long, we were in a moon age, an age of materialism. In this age, we have wars and diseases. We have greed and envy. Practically everything negative belongs to the moon age. But now that is changing one more.

A New Sun Life

We are at the dawn of a new solar age. This is primarily because God has sent us the promised Sun of Righteousness. That’s “sun,” not “son”. The Sun of Righteousness might be thought of as a special edition of the spiritual sun. It has more energy than the previous spiritual sun. It has higher frequencies than the older sun. It sends spiritual light and consciousness toward us at a much greater rate than before.

As a result, some of us are awakening. As we awaken, we turn around and start changing from moon-age beings to a new sun life. As solar beings, we consume less matter, but take in more energy. We start thinking of others as much as ourselves. Killing other beings, plant or animal, without a good reason is not acceptable to us. Most of all, we gradually raise our consciousness levels, with the aid of the spiritual light from the Sun of Righteousness, to higher and higher levels. As we increase our levels of consciousness, we become able to communicate with higher beings like angels and light beings. We learn truth and wisdom. Gnosis is achieved. And the darkness and the beings of darkness will be banned forever in this new age of light. So start becoming part of this new sun life now.
