sunrise

Sunrise Energizes even when Cloudy

“Even in cloudy weather you should go out before the sunrise and concentrate your thought in the direction of the rising sun. The clouds only obscure your sight of the rising Sun, but its energies penetrate through them. No external force is able to counteract the solar energies. That is why I recommend all anemic and weak people go out half an hour before sunrise, to perceive the early solar energies. The dawn gives a man such energies which no other power is able to give him.

“If someone is indisposed, let him take a sunbath: if he has lost his energy, let him stay longer under its shine; if he cannot decide how to work, let him go out under the sun rays to warm up.

“If between the energies of the Sun and the energies of your organism a proper exchange takes place, you would always be healthy.

“The greater the quantity of gold in the blood, the healthier is man. Sicknesses are due to insufficient quantities of gold in the blood. In order to increase this gold, man should lead a pure and noble life. Gold is the symbol of the Sun, of vitality, of health and purity.” ~Biensa Douno

Cloudy Sun Gazing

Many sun gazers think they should not sungaze when it is cloudy. That may be fine if it is cloudy only one day in ten, but if it stays cloudy for several days at a time, you need to practice your techniques, even through the clouds. You should not skip several days in a row or your energies will be reduced.

Concentrate Your Thought

Douno is correct in saying that we should concentrate our thoughts when we do sungazing. But what thoughts we concentrate is even more important than the mere act of concentration. They need to be positive thoughts, loving thoughts, universal thoughts. Best of all, they should be thoughts of linking your spirit and soul with the spiritual sun. That is far more important than just getting energy from the physical sun. Visualize yourself entering the sun ,becoming one with it. Even when you can’t see it, you know it is there.

No External Force

Douno says that no external force can counteract, or completely block, the solar energies. That may well be true, but he doesn’t mention internal force. If we are full of negative thoughts, hateful or greedy thoughts, or thoughts of disbelief, we alter or block that beneficial energy. This is why most spiritual gurus, even those who don’t mention the sun, want us to have an open mind and a positive mind. Only such a mind can take in those energies from the spiritual sun just as they are.

Before Sunrise

It is a good idea to began your sunrise ritual before the sun has actually risen. A full half hour may be a little too much for modern man, however. We have gotten to used to instant gratification and become bored and distracted quickly. I thing five or ten minutes before sunrise is good. That is what we do in Cosolargy. But continue the sun gazing for five to ten minutes after the sun has risen. For those not accustomed to sun gazing, never stare at the sun. squint a little and look to one side. Better yet, get proper training from a qualified teacher.

Exchange Energies

The best flow of energy between us and the sun occurs when we make it a mutual exchange of energy rather than just taking in energy. We send energy to the sun at the same time that we take in the sun’s energy. We should do this not only with the sun, but with all beings. Send energy to a tree and ask it to share its energy with you. Don’t get upset if it doesn’t, maybe it is low on energy at the time. Send energy to your pets and even wild animals. Most will send energy back to you. This is the natural way to learn from each other because that energy carries information. So when you send energy to the sun, be sure to fill it with positive thoughts and information. That information will be broadcast by the sun to other beings. If we all started to practice this, much disease and ignorance would be eliminated. The sunrise awakens us in many ways.

eye of the soul

Eye of the Soul and the Inner Sun

“In the middle of the human brain there is the so-called flying eye of the soul or the inner Sun of man. If this sun is not shining in man, there can become nothing of him. It plays the role of a transformer in the human organism. When the energy from without penetrates the human brain, the junction or eye of the soul transfers the energy throughout the whole organism. It possesses other feature also besides transforming the solar energy. There is another transformer within the brain which transfers the solar energy throughout the whole body. On the proper functioning of these energies depend the state of health of the organism as well as of feelings.

“Even in cloudy weather you should go out before the sunrise and concentrate your thought in the direction of the rising Sun. The clouds only obscure your sight of the Sun, but its energies penetrate through them. No external force is able to counteract the solar energies. … The dawn gives man such energies which no other power is able to give him.” ~Biensa Douno

Flying Eye of the Soul

While Douno doesn’t actually say it, most of us know that this flying eye of the soul is the pineal gland. Whether or not it has any direct connection to the soul is debatable. What is known is that the pineal gland takes in sunlight which can when directed properly, awaken the sleeping spirit and soul. It also energizes the body’s energy centers, often called Chakras. There are other benefits to the body and the mind in taking in sunlight at dawn, but our concern is with the spiritual.

Inner Sun

Douno says this Eye of the Soul is also the inner sun of man. This is a reasonably accurate expression. It may, however, lead people to think that it generates energy rather than taking it in and distributing it. They figure that the sun sends energy out, it doesn’t take it in. But that is not true. All the stars in the galaxy send and receive energy from each other. And in sharing their energy, they also share their knowledge. And our inner sun, our eye of the soul, must take in energy in order to send it out. Unlike the sun in the sky, it can’t generate any significant amount of energy on its own. It has to take in energy from the sun. Then it can share it with the body and spirit. Continue reading “Eye of the Soul and the Inner Sun”

sun servant

Sun Servant Bringing Truth and Civilization

“In the days before Harekta came, all was barren and desolate. Nought divided the wilderness from the swamp lands filled with reeds. Thus here were no cattle or sheep, and the land knew not the hand of man, it lay untilled and unwatered.

“No land was sown, for they who dwelt in it knew not the making of waterways, nor did they know how to command the water an make is flow at man’s behest. There were no cities, and men dwelt in holes in the ground, or where the rock was cleft. They walked in their nakedness, or clothed themselves with leaves or bark, while at night, they covered themselves with the skins of wild beasts. … They had none to rule over them, nor had they leaders to guide. … They were truly unenlightened in those days.

“Then came the servant of the Sun, and he it was who brought the people together and put rulers over them. … He showed them, man and woman, how to dwell together in contentment. … He instructed men in the sowing of corn and the growing of herbs. … He instructed men in the working of gold and silver, and the making of vessels from clay. …

“Then, when he departed he bade the people not to weep, for thought he went to his father, the sun would adopt them as his children and all could become sons of the sun.” ~The Kolbrin Bible (MAN:2:3-7)

Barren and Desolate Land

It is hard for many to accept that the land could have been barren and desolate in the time of cavemen. We tend to think that being barren and desolate is the result of man’s folly and interference with the natural order of things. But what most don’t understand is the time of the cavemen was such a period. It wasn’t before any human enterprise, but a fallen world after a great disaster, natural or man-made. There were great civilizations and great cities that were destroyed leaving only a few alive to live as primitive cavemen.

Wilderness

It’s not clear what the author of this section of the Kolbrin Bible meant by wilderness, which he says nothing divided from the swampland. I would think swampland is a type of wilderness, though it could also be a forest, desert, etc. In any case, it clearly means some type of undeveloped land. Undeveloped to the extent that it wasn’t even used for grazing land or for farming. But as I pointed out above, there were civilizations before the cavemen that were destroyed. This wilderness, then, might have been land that once was used by man before the destruction that turned civilized people into cave-dwelling barbarians.

practice look at the light

Look at the Light of the Spiritual Sun

“As an adolescent, I had a summer job working as a volunteer companion in a nursing home for the aged. … By the first day of actual patient contact, I was very anxious.

“My first assignment was to visit with a ninety-six-year-old women who had not spoken for more that a year. A psychiatrist ad diagnosed her as having senile dementia, but she had not responded to medication. The nurses doubted she would talk to me. … We would string beads together. …

‘I knocked on the closed door of her room. There was no answer. Opening the door, I found myself in a small room lit by a single window which faced the morning sun. Two chairs had been placed in front of the window. In one sat a very old lady, looking out. The other was empty. … I went to the empty chair and sat down.

“For awhile I tried to find a way to open a conversation. … The silence in the room was absolute. Somehow it just seemed rude to speak. Finally I gave up and just sat with with the basket of glass beads in my lap for the full hour. …

“Taking hold of the basket again, I prepared to leave. … Turning to the old women, I asked, ‘What are you looking at?’… Slowly she turned toward me and I could see her face for the first time. It was radiant. In a voice filled with joy she said, ‘Why, child, I am looking at the Light.’” ~Rachel Naomi Remen

Silence Speaks

Silence isn’t nothing. It is a thing in itself. Parents know that silence from an infant probably means trouble. Likewise with a puppy. With older people, it often means they are bored, depressed, or simply occupied with something and don’t want to talk about it. But when silence extends into days, weeks, even months, there may be a serious problem. In the elderly, this usually is interpreted as a form of dementia. Nearly all forms of odd behavior are considered dementia in the elderly. It often isn’t true.

We forget that in some parts of the world, and in some religions, it is not uncommon for a monk to take a vow of silence. Those who do so may go for years, even decades without speaking a word. The medical community does not label them as demented. They shouldn’t do with the elderly either.

Look at the Light

It was easy to assume the old woman was staring off into space unaware of what was happening. Silent because she didn’t even know she was being visited. But when asked a simple question instead of being treated like a demented person, she responded. She responded brilliantly.

When you are very old, you no longer have the luxury of pretending you will live forever. You know your physical body is mortal and will die soon. You learn to accept that. So idle chitchat no longer appeals to you. Perhaps knitting doilies or stringing beads also seems pointless. Some part of you now knows that the only thing that still matters is preparing your immortal spirit and soul for what is coming. And even if you have never been spiritual, you know that you need to turn to the light. The old woman wasn’t demented. She was wiser than her doctors.

We don’t know the woman’s background. Perhaps she had been a very religious person. Perhaps she had never concerned herself with death and the afterlife until she realized it was knocking at her door. What we do know is that she finally had tie wisdom to look at the light. Not just any light, of course. Not a flashlight. Not a lamp in her room. That would have been to no avail. She was looking at the light of the sun. Watching the sunrise. Doing what St. Francis was doing when he had his spiritual awakening. Looking at the sun that awakened Jacob Boehme, and many others. The sun the Essenes and Pythagoreans faced each morning at sunrise. They all knew they had to look at the Light.

Look at the Light of the Spiritual Sun

Looking at the light is good, but not all light is the same. Not even all light from the sun. That is because there is more than one sun. Beyond the physical sun, there is a spiritual sun. It is this spiritual sun that awakens the spirit and soul. There are benefits in gazing at the physical sun for the physical body (if done correctly and safely, of course), but to benefit the spirit and soul we must look to the spiritual sun.

And your attitude when looking at the sun matters also. If you are angry, sad, jealous, or otherwise in a negative state, you will get little benefit from the sun. You have to be at peace with yourself, with others, and with the world. That doesn’t mean you have to accept that everything that is happening in the world is acceptable. It means you know it is temporary and can be stopped. But the way to stop the evils in the world of materialism is not with more materialism. You have to awaken your spiritual faculties and help others do the same. That happens when you look to the spiritual sun with an open and peaceful mind and heart. Look at the light with a benevolent attitude and a desire to grow. Don’t wait, like the old women in the story until you are old and dying.
