Here are two Daily Meditations from Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov on why meditating at sunrise can bring us great benefits, physical and spiritual. The quotes form the text for the video- Eat fire and drink light which is published on this site.

“You are at the sunrise: as you await the first ray, you are watchful and attentive, and when the first ray appears, you imagine that you are absorbing it, that you are swallowing it. In this way, you start to drink the sun. Instead of just looking at it and breathing it, you drink and eat it and imagine that this living light is spreading throughout all the cells of your organs, purifying, strengthening and invigorating them. This exercise will help you to concentrate and the results will be fantastic. Your whole being will quiver as you feel that you are really absorbing the light.
It is written in the Zend-Avesta that when Zoroaster asked Ahura-Mazda how primordial man fed himself the latter replied, ‘He ate fire and drank light.’ So why should we not also learn to eat fire and drink light in order to return to the perfection of primordial man.”
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Daily Meditation 30th June 2022
“In the morning, when you go to contemplate the sunrise, do not be content to look at it as just a beautiful sight. Through thought, endeavour to make the sun penetrate within. You say that you are trying to perfect yourself, and that it is very difficult and you cannot do it. But strive to bring the sun into your heart and into your soul, and you will feel something begin to vibrate differently.
Even if what I am telling you may sound strange, agree to try this exercise. The sun is the fire of life. So, every morning, approach the sun with the conviction that you can capture a spark or a flame that you will bury deep inside and carry preciously as if it were the greatest treasure. Thanks to this flame, your life will be purified, sublimated, and everywhere you go, you will bring purity and light.”
