“When you raise your eyes towards the Sun, your heart and your whole being will leap. Some people say that the Sun is a fiery celestial body. Every morning I witness how the Lord takes the Sun as a great lighted candle and makes His rounds all over. He comes from the East! This is how I see the Sun. Behind this Sun there is something still greater and more glorious. Similarly, behind our lives something great is hidden. Behind the ordinary manifestation of life there is something else, which every one of you is conscious of. This is the Divine in the human being.
“When love comes to us, we become strong, cheerful and happy. When we love somebody or something, we look like a sunny day with a bright sky, when the sun shines and the weather is warm and serene.
“Whoever is sensitive can turn their backs to the east and feel when the first Sun rays appear. Exactly at that moment, they will feel a slight, pleasant warmth in the solar plexus. The spine is capable of perceiving the warmth of the first Sun rays since all is connected to the sympathetic nerve system.” ~Biensa Douno
Raise Your Eyes Towards the Sun
Why should you raise your eyes towards the sun? Don’t the “experts” and authorities tell you not to do that? They say it is dangerous. In fact, they say, all exposure to the sun is dangerous. It will turn your pale, thin skin dark and thick so it actually protects your body the way it is supposed to. We certainly don’t want that, do we?
But maybe the “experts” and authorities don’t actually have our best interests at heart. Maybe they have been led to believe things that are not quite true and they believe they are doing you a favor by forcing those false beliefs on you. In either case, the Sun is not your enemy. It is not out to kill you—unless you are a vampire or other creature of darkness. Seriously, don’t you notice that in legends and myths of Vampires, Werewolves, and other things of darkness, that most of those creatures fear the Sun and sunlight? This should tell you that sunlight, when used properly, is a good thing.
Of course, when Douno, like Gene Savoy, advised people to look towards the sun, he didn’t mean that you should stare at the sun. That will almost certainly cause eye damage and not be helpful at all. You look toward the sun without looking directly at it in the manner known to many as sun-gazing. Continue reading “Look Towards the Sun for Wisdom”
