Ignorance of the Divine Spark and Awakening It

Human Ignorance

“Humans are generally ignorant of the divine spark resident within them. This ignorance is fostered in human nature by the influence of the false creator and his Archons. … Not all humans are spiritual and thus ready for Gnosis and liberation. … Gnostics do not look to salvation from sin (original or other), but rather from ignorance of which sin is a consequence. Ignorance – whereby is meant ignorance of spiritual realities – is dispelled only by Gnosis.

“And as a terminal downbeat observation: Death does not automatically bring about liberation from bondage to the realms of the Demiurge. … It is implicitly understood in most Gnostic teachings that those who have not made effective contact with their transcendental origins while they were in embodiment would have to return into the sorrowful condition of earthly life.” ~Bernard Simon

Ignorance of the Divine Spark

Much of humanity is ignorant of the Divine Spark within. They generally fall into two groups. One group believes in God and is often quite religious, but doesn’t see and need for spiritual self-development. The other doesn’t believe in God or anything spiritual. Both are living in some degree of ignorance.

Ignorance is Sin

Mr. Simon says that, according to the Gnostics, that salvation (or forgiveness) of sin was not the path to Heaven and enlightenment, but rather to be free from ignorance, which causes sin. That is true of most Gnostic groups and it is true of Cosolargy, which I follow. Gene Savoy, Sr said:

Man punishes himself because he breaks the supernatural laws of the cosmos. Man suffers because of his ignorance of God and His laws. Ignorance is the only sin for which man must atone.”

Why is ignorance the only sin that matters? Because one you overcome ignorance, you stop sinning, it is that simple. When you were an infant, you may have touched a hot stove and got burned. Not badly, but enough so you knew it wasn’t a good thing to do. But because you didn’t quite put the stove and the burning pain together as connected yet, you may have made the same mistake a day or two later. But after getting a few mild burns (hopefully, your parents had you protected from the hotter areas where you could get serious burns!), you got the connection and stopped touching it.

Death and Liberation

A common belief of those living in spiritual ignorance is that when you die, you go on to Heaven or some variation of the Christian Heaven. You need not do anything special, you don’t have to earn this high privilege, you just have to die. If that were true, the idea that suicide is wrong would make no sense at all. Why should anyone be deprived of the right to rush off to heaven whenever they choose?

The answer, of course, is that death is not a ticket to Heaven. It isn’t even a ticket to an afterlife, at least not in the sense that most of us expect an afterlife to be. Those who die without doing what is necessary to get into heaven will find that their soul will separate from them, and return to heaven without them. The soul is like a guest living in your spiritual guest room. If you don’t go through the process that allows you to become one with the soul as taught by mystics and mystery schools for ages, the soul moves out and you do not go with it. Instead, your consciousness becomes part of the Gaia mind that controls the planet. You become, in a way, a piece of Mother Nature’s consciousness. That is not what I want when I die and I don’t think it is what anyone else wants.

I have heard of some Eastern Gurus telling people that when they die, their soul is like a drop of water falling into an ocean. Once that happens, it becomes just a part of the whole ocean. That is a good description of what happens to those who, out of ignorance, don’t integrate with their soul.

Escape from Ignorance

So don’t become a drop of water in the ocean, a tiny piece of the Gaia mind. Lose your ignorance by awakening and developing your soul. You do that primarily by taking in the light of the Spiritual Sun through a process called sun-gazing. But sun gazing alone won’t do it. It is more complicated, which is why those who are serious about ending their spiritual ignorance join a reputable spiritual school to learn the complete process one step at a time.

towards the sun

Look Towards the Sun for Wisdom

“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”

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”
