Living Book of the Spiritual Sun

Living Book of the Sun

“He who cannot accept truth looks only on the surface and makes conclusions which his mind can accept. The same thing happens with him who does not understand the Sacred Book of Life. He is content to seek the superficial truth – he is not ready to seek its real content. As the book is a living and sensible book for one who understands it, so is the Sun a living and sensible book, which only a few can read and understand. Every morning the sun rises and a voice from the invisible world asks if you have read your page for today. The Sun is a book in the pages of which God every day writes something new. You may say that the Sun is something that has no intelligence. The Sun exists – it has abundant light which causes the fruit to ripen, the flower to bloom, the snow and ice to melt – how can it be said that it has no intelligence? The light that the Sun sends to all the plants indicates that there are living beings in the Sun with a high level of intelligence and the ability to reason. Whatever the speculations about the Sun may be, it is important for man to know how to make use of the Sun’s light and warmth and to achieve something from it. One day his eyes will open and he himself will be able to investigate. Therefore I say that man has a great future ahead of him.” ~Beinsa Douno

Looking at the Surface

Many will not believe what Douno is saying about them looking only at the surface truth, and not going deeper to the real truth, yet what he says is correct. And it isn’t limited to the average person who doesn’t care to dig any deeper than what he needs to function in his daily life, get his job done, etc. Even scientists who think they are studying things all the way to the depth of molecules and atoms are still only looking at the surface. The level of matter is but one dimension of being. There are other dimensions above it and when you look at only that part that is in the dimensions of matter, you are looking only at the surface. You are studying the ten percent of the iceberg sticking out of the water and ignoring the ninety percent that is below the surface of the water. With a limited view like that, you may find some truth, but it will be limited, partial, and probably temporary.

As Douno also points out, even those who look beyond matter into the realm of spirit, but do so with an attitude of expecting it to be virtually identical to the dimensions of matter will not understand what they are seeing, feeling, and hearing. They will look at spiritual things with their physical senses and not be able to comprehend them because they will be seeing them in a very distorted way. Only the spiritual faculties of Man can truly see, feel, and hear the spiritual, but they must first be awakened as they are dormant when we arrive in the physical world.

infinite spirit

Infinite Spirit and the Central Sun

Infinite Spirit

“How shall we approach this subject, which even the most advanced minds in the flesh today can but faintly comprehend? How can the finite express or comprehend the infinite? Spirit, man’s seventh principle, is the Divine Spark – our most precious inheritance from the Divine Power – a ray from the Central Sun – the real Self. Words cannot express it. Our minds fail to grasp it. It is the soul of the Soul. To understand it we must understand God, for Spirit is a drop from the Spirit Ocean – a grain of sand from the shores of the infinite – a particle of the Sacred Flame. It is the something within us which is the cause of our evolution through all the weary ages. It was the first to be, and yet it will be the last to appear in full Consciousness.

“When man arrives at a full consciousness of Spirit, he will be so much higher than man that such a being is at present inconceivable to the intellect. Confined in many sheaths of matter, it has waited through the long and weary ages for even a faint recognition. … Man will ascend many steps of development – from man to archangel – before Spirit will fully claim its own.” ~William Walker Atkinson

Faintly Comprehend

There are many people today who believe they fully understand the spirit and soul and the complete and complex structure that is a human being, but very few of them actually do. I am not claiming to be one of them, yet I think I have been given a better understanding of it as a student of Cosolargy than most others who call themselves spiritual. It is a simple fact, as Atkinson states, that the human mind is not capable of understanding spirit and soul as they exist outside the limitations of matter which is all the mind can truly understand.

Ray of the Central Sun

I have quoted Atkinson and others in older posts about the concept of the Central Sun. The idea is rarely explained but is fairly obvious. If there are many suns, there must be a Central Sun, a Lead Sun, a Sun that is the greatest of all suns. But why should we as spiritual students care about any sun, let alone some theoretical Central Sun? We should care because of what the prophet Malachi told us about the coming Sun of Righteousness, which is here, now, in our time! Just as physical beings and even physical objects have a spirit, so does a star or sun. Planets and moons have spirits too, of course, but it is the Spiritual Suns that matter to us. The Spiritual Suns are all linked on a spiritual and energetic level with every other sun including that great Central Sun.

There are suns within us as well. The energy centers commonly called chakras are, in a very real way, miniature suns. As such, they connect us to other suns, stars, and the Central Sun.

Spirit Ocean

It is true that our spirit is a drop in the spirit ocean, but it is not like matter. When you put a drop of water in the ocean, it quickly blends with all other drops and becomes indistinguishable. It loses all individuality. Some spiritual schools teach that such an end to the Self is the goal, but it isn’t. We have a spirit Self for a reason. I think a more apt comparison is that of an individual brink in a grat wall of many bricks, or, as Atkinson also notes, a grain of sand on an infinite beach. The tiny grain of sand may seem insignificant, but it is part of that great infinite shore that offers solace to those drowning in the illusions of matter. And like the bricks in the brick wall, each grain of sand remains an individual though being very much a part of the infinite shore of spiritual reality. We cannot claim to be infinite spirit, but only a small part of it. While it is true, to some degree, that like a hologram, the whole is in every part, none of us who is honest can claim to understand the whole physical universe, let alone the spiritual one. So while we are a part of that whole, we don’t yet comprehend the whole.

Full Consciousness

There are many levels of consciousness. We are not at the highest, but the good news is we are not at the lowest level either (though we may question that with some). Indeed, even within the human race, we are at several different levels of consciousness. The even better news is that we are capable of developing our spirit and soul and slowly, over a period of years, raising their consciousness to higher and higher levels until we reach the level where we are one with Infinite Spirit and Infinite Consciousness. When we reach that level, we will comprehend the whole of reality and truly be Infinite Spirit. First, however, we must start by turning to the Spiritual Sun to awaken our spirits and souls.

great angel

Great Angel from God

The Great Angel

“Now, as for that angel, I cannot speak of his power. His appearance is like fine gold and his raiment is like snow. No, truly, my mouth cannot bear to speak of his power and the appearance of his face. Eleleth, the great angel, spoke to me. “It is I,” he said, “who am understanding. I am one of the four luminaries who stand in the presence of the great invisible spirit. Do you think these rulers have any power over you? None of them can prevail against the root of truth, for on its account he has appeared in the final ages, and these authorities will be restrained. And these authorities cannot defile you and that race, for your abode is in incorruptibility, where the virgin spirit lives, who is superior to the authorities of chaos and to their universe.” But I said, “Sir, teach me about these authorities. How did they come into being? By what genesis, and out of what material, and who created them and their power?” The great angel Eleleth, understanding, spoke to me: “Incorruptibility inhabits limitless realms. Sophia, who is called Pistis, wanted to create something, alone, without her partner, and what she created was celestial. “A veil exists between the world above and the realms below, and shadow came into being beneath the veil. That shadow became matter, and that shadow was projected apart. And what she had created came to be in matter, like an aborted fetus. It assumed a shape molded out of shadow, and became an arrogant beast resembling a lion. It was androgynous, as I have already said, because it derived from matter.” ~The Reality of the Rulers

The Appearance of the Great Angel

The short Gnostic scripture known as The Reality of the Rulers says the appearance of this great angel named Eleleth is “like fine gold and his raiment is like snow.” In other words, the angel looked like he was made of fine gold and was dressed in the purest white. This matches closely the description by Gene Savoy, Sr. of the angel that visited him as looking like gold that had been heated until it was white-hot, and with eyes that looked like glowing diamonds. It is probably how all angels look. They are not just people with wings on their backs. Continue reading “Great Angel from God”

rays of the sun

Rays of the Sun for Spiritual Health

“The rays of the Sun are a bearer of great good. And each ray that comes out of God brings great blessing to the people. It is alive. I am not saying that the Light is only a vibration, motion of the air – this is the outer part of the matter. The Light is a force that is alive and reasonable, that penetrates into the human being and revives them.

“Modern people live in great chaos – they do not know how to plan their work and as a result spend a lot of energy to accomplish poor results. If you want to work efficiently, the moment you wake up and you are still lying in your bed, thank God for everything He has given to you. You will ask, ‘Where is God?’ God is in the Sun, in the sky, in the Earth, in the water, in the air, in the wind, in the rocks, in the plants, in the animals, in humans – God is everywhere. …

“He who cannot accept truth looks only on the surface and makes conclusions which his mind can accept. The same thing happens with him who does not understand the Sacred Book of Life. He is content to seek the superficial truth – he is not ready to seek its real content. As the book is a living and sensible book for one who understands it, so is the Sun a living and sensible book, which only a few can read and understand.” ~Biensa Douno

Rays of the Sun

While Douno doesn’t seem to distinguish this, there is a difference between the sun and the Sun. The “sun” is the physical body in the sky at the center of our solar system. The “Sun” is the Spiritual Sun which is the spirit of the physical sun. Both of those suns can be bearers of good, but when it comes to spiritual development, it is the Spiritual Sun that provides that good. There is some good in the physical sun, but it is for the physical body and the mind. The physical sun does not benefit the spirit and soul.

Ray Out of God

This ray out of God can only be within the Spiritual Sun. It does bring great blessings, but only if you receive those rays and absorb them. Many people hide from those rays or block them with inappropriate thinking and behavior. Many receive them but are not willing or ready to utilize the energy in them, so the rays pass through them and do nothing. You have to accept the rays with gladness, humility, and a desire to do good in the world. Then the rays of the Sun are absorbed into the spirit and soul and the spiritual energy centers.
