Comprehend Light and Let it Awaken You

“If you wish to comprehend light, walk where light walks. Does light enter only royal palaces? It enters into clean and unclean places. Light does not stop at anything – it penetrates into the most hidden places to enlighten and enliven them. This is great humility. Man should learn humility from light.

“Get up early! Go out! Greet the sun! What wonderful things are hidden with the rising sun! If one goes out regularly in the morning, he will receive inspiration.

“In order to get healed, the sick one should purify his blood. He should undertake this work himself. How? By breathing pure air, exposing his back to the Sun, and eating pure and healthy food.

“In the morning there is always more prana, or vital energy, then at noon.” ~Biensa Douno

Comprehend Light

We do need to comprehend light. The first thing we need to understand is that not all light is the same. For our purposes, we can thing of light as being of two kinds. There is physical light that is produced by physical things like the sun, the stars, or even fireflies. There is also spiritual light which originates only with God. It comes to us, however, through the spiritual Sun.

The best way to comprehend light is to pay attention to it. That means watching the sunrise of both the physical and spiritual suns. Technically, the spiritual sun never rises or sets, but because most of us think of spirits as being attached to their physical counterpart, we should look for the spiritual sun within the physical.

Where Light Goes

Light does go everywhere. It goes into happy places and sad places. It enters rich countries and poor countries. Religious beliefs doesn’t stop it from entering anyone’s house. The light of the physical sun helps weeds grow just as much as flowers and grains.

But you can put a box over the flowers and block the light. The plants will shrivel and die. Blocking darkness has no such effect. In fact, you don’t really block darkness. Darkness is pushed out by the light.

Spiritual light doesn’t work quite the same way, however. Yes, it too goes virtually everywhere. But if you are not attuned to it, it goes right through you with no effect. It is as if you are not even there. It’s like an FM radio signal hitting an old AM radio. The waves hit the radio but have no effect on it. Fortunately, while most of us don’t intentionally attune ourselves to the spiritual light, it happens occasionally anyway for brief moments. Then we will be affected.

Greet the Sun

The best way to make sure that we take in that spiritual light is to, as Douno recommends, go out and greet the sun. Don’t just be in the sun and don’t stare at the sun. In order to truly “greet the sun,” you have to view the sunrise with a positive and loving attitude. Never do sun-gazing when angry, upset, or depressed. The physical sun will just amplify those feelings. Wait until you are in a more positive mood, then you will take in light from the spiritual sun as well as the physical. You will also fill that light with those positive thoughts making you healthier on both a physical and spiritual level.

Purify

I’m not sure that one can truly purify the blood by the methods Douno recommends. There is no doubt, however, that eating healthy food (organic), exercising, and deep breathing will improve our health. Most of all, getting light from both the physical and spiritual suns will improve our health on several levels. But we still need to eat sensible and live a sensible lifestyle.

Spiritual Physician Heal Thyself and Others

“It is well known that if a rich person has confidence and faith in his physician, he is more liable to be benefited by the latter than if he mistrusts him. … The presence of a spiritually-minded physician who possesses a strong soul, and who desires to help the patient, is a power which is often sufficiently strong to change the pathological activity of the soul-elements of the patient … and thus to restore the patient. Every physician ought therefore to be a magician in a certain sense. He ought not to doubt in the least that he will be successful. …

“In this power of the spirit over the element of matter by means of the soul rests the power of certain signs, images, formulas, incantations, words, etc. … By the will and imagination of the spirit the soul receives strength to act upon matter.” ~Franz Hartmann

Confidence and Trust

It is definitely true that if you have confidence in your doctor, you are more likely to get well under his care. And this isn’t limited to wealthy patients, nor to doctors. If we trust and have confidence in our teachers, we are more likely to learn from them. Even with a cook, we will get more enjoyment and nourishment from the meal if we have confidence in them.

Spiritual Physician

Mr. Hartman says that we get more help from a “spiritually-minded” physician. That is true on several levels. If we limit it to a physical physician who treats illness of the body, we can see that being spiritual helps. First, a spiritually-minded doctor will trust his intuition more than most. He will use it both as a diagnostic aid, and as an aid in choosing appropriate treatment. Such a doctor is lee likely to be taken in by the promotional material he gets from the big drug companies.

A psychiatrist is even more likely to benefit from being spiritual. This field is still relatively new, and there is still a lot the psychiatrists don’t know. Having a well-developed intuition would certainly be a great aid to them. In the area of research, a doctor with spiritual insights will do a better job deciding which leads to follow to find new treatments.

Finally, there is the spiritual physician. This is not recognized as an area of medicine today, but it probably will be one day. In the distant past, the Shaman, Priest, or spiritual leader of a tribe or group was usually the one people turned to when they were sick. In other cases, the medicine man of the tribe worked closely with the spiritual leader. Still, this was mostly in dealing with illness on the physical level. Real spiritual medicine is on a higher level.

The true spiritual physician can tell that a person illnesses or problems are rooted in his spirit. Either the spirit has not been developed at all, or it has more negative energy than positive. In such cases, there is little that can be done on the physical level. Such treatments may work, but only temporarily. If the person is ill on a spiritual level, that is the level where he must receive treatment. Only a trained spiritual doctor can do that.

Mystics: Artists and Healers of Life

“The mystics are artists; and the stuff in which they work is most often human life. They want to heal the disharmony between the actual and the real: and since, in the white-hot radiance of that faith, hope, and charity which burns in them, they discern such a reconciliation to be possible, they are able to work for it with a singleness of purpose and an invincible optimism denied to other men. This was the instinct which drove St. Francis of Assisi to the practical experience of that poverty which he recognized as the highest wisdom; … St. Teresa to the formation of an ideal religious family; … Florence Nightingale to battle with officials, vermin, dirt, and disease in the soldiers hospitals. …” ~Evelyn Underhill

Mystics as Artists

Mystics are artists in the sense of being creators and agents of change. If they don’t make the changes them selves, they are either helping others to do so, or working with God and the angels to make it happen. They are not artists of chaos. They are not artists who seek to reveal the dark and slimy underbelly of life on the material plane. Instead they are

seekers of beauty, much like painter Georgia O’Keeffe saw beauty in the desert where she lived.

Mystics as Healers

The mystic life is also the life of a healer. Not that mystics typically spend much time healing illnesses of the physical body, though a few of them do. Most do not because the laws governing the material plane require a payment for such favors, which usually means that the healer will get sick as a result of healing another.

The Illusion of Matter

“There is no trustworthy standard by which we can separate the ‘real’ from the ‘unreal’ aspects of phenomena. Such standards as exist are conventional: and correspond to convenience, not to truth. It is no argument to say that most men see the world in much the same way, and that this ‘way’ is the true standard of reality: though for practical purposes we have agreed that sanity consists in sharing the hallucinations of our neighbors. Those who are hones with themselves know that this ‘sharing’ is at best incomplete. By the voluntary adoption of a new conception of the universe, … we can and do change to a marked extent our way of seeing things: building up new worlds from old sense impressions, and transmuting objects more easily and thoroughly than any magician.” ~Evelyn Underhill

What the vast majority of us consider reality is no more real than a cartoon or a fantasy novel set in some alien world. We think it is real because most of us agree on it. Something very real could be right in front of us, but if most of us have agreed that it is not real, we will not see it. If most of us look into a garden and see nothing but turnips and tomatoes, the person who also see fairies fluttering around is considered mentally ill. In fact, neither of them is truly seeing reality. Continue reading “The Illusion of Matter”
