Summer Solstice Meditation- sunrise and the elixir of eternal life

In Greece it is referred to as ambrosia, in India soma, and alchemists call it the elixir of eternal life… All cultures make mention of the existence of a beverage of immortality and some even explain how to prepare it. In reality this beverage exists in nature, but not just anywhere of course. It is found only in the most subtle and purest regions of space and only at specific moments, such as sunrise. Dawn is the best time of the day, because the true beverage of immortality is light, and you can capture it in the morning at sunrise and use it to nourish your subtle bodies. If, in spring and summer, we go to watch the sunrise, it is in order to drink this quintessence of life as it spreads throughout the universe. Stones, plants, animals and humans can all receive it.

In the first light of dawn

“What a privilege it is to be able to contemplate the sunrise! This is why, each year, as spring returns, you should prepare for these unique moments.

The sun is the source, bursting forth, shimmering and flowing… When you succeed in immersing yourself in this flow of light, you will never want to tear yourself away from it again. And if you arrive very early, well before the sun has even risen, and see the first light of dawn, a feeling of sacredness comes over you, as if you had been admitted into the presence of the mysteries that the whole of nature is celebrating. You even feel the need to walk differently so as not to disturb the atmosphere. You enter into true poetry. How can we not wish that all human beings might one day experience and drink in this beauty, purity and abundance.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
