19. The Sun

The Sun can be seen as an awakening to our higher vision of who we are and what are here to do.  This is the lighting up of the unconscious, which lifts us to super-consciousness when we can see the illusion that the shadows cast in our material world.  Here we understand all possibility.  Optimism reigns because we are Sun struck and see that we are all One. You are almost there.  The possibility of an existence far beyond what you ever imagined is in sight.

Key Words: Enlightenment/ Union with all potential/ Success/ Joy/ Fulfilled relationship/ Marriage                                                           

John King                   The Sun

“The tides cover the land, the moon pulls on the tides and the sun pulls on the moon in a solar system that gently turns, within a galaxy that slowly spins, in a universe that has no end.  How can something have no end?  

The sun is one yellow star in an infinite sky of stars and galaxies.  Plants on earth convert this sunlight into matter.  A redwood tree is a large piece of sunlight with water and a few essential elements thrown in from its roots.   Energy is only matter times the speed of light squared. Sunlight and the earth are only different forms of the same thing.  Everything in this universe is made up of the same atoms arranged in different ways.  Everything in this universe is us and we are it.  I don’t believe in religion, so I can’t say a God has made this.  I wouldn’t call it magic, but I would call it magical.  The universe is sure a fantastic thing to try and think about. 

When I look up at the sun in my tiny body with its tiny mind, it makes me think that I am nothing special.    The universe is not holding its breath waiting for my enlightenment.  
Whatever the sun and the universe are or are not, I will never understand, but I do understand that I am alive right now and I will certainly celebrate that.”
