“You are not yet aware that the sun’s rays are able to feed your spirit. Yes, but only if you learn how to receive them, only if you open yourself to them with all your heart and soul. Can you not accept that light is more than a physical vibration, that it is a living entity? As long as you remain closed to this idea, you cannot benefit from all the sun’s riches.
Try to organize your life in such a way that light occupies more and more of a place in it. In spring and summer, go and contemplate the rising sun, with the thought that you can receive its rays in the same way that you take in food, water and air. And speak to them too, saying, ‘O luminous rays, permeate my being; chase away the clouds that darken my sky.’ They already permeate you without your knowing of course, but if you are conscious and pay attention, if you fill yourself with their light and warmth in the conviction that something is growing and developing within you, gradually you will feel revitalized by new vibrations”.
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov The Splendours of Tipharet
As the sun’s rays are just beginning to appear on the horizon, i never regret getting up before 5 am to greet it. The photos are of particularly beautiful sunrises taken from a spot we call ‘the clump’ in the Ashdown Forest, East Sussex. It’s close to a meditation/ meeting center called the Doves Nest where disciples in the UK meet once a month for spiritual activities, including Surya Yoga- meditating at sunrise. Here’s an extract from the Daily Meditations that describes how we can receive nourishment from the sun’s vibrations…. SJJ
