As a student of the Universe I am constantly in awe of the methods used to convey knowledge and the magnitude of the ‘blackboard’ used to deliver the lessons. Over the years I have learned to keep a pad and pen with me at all times for this knowledge can come at any time and to any location. One of my greatest, most revealing lessons arrived unexpectedly one day when I witnessed the power of the sun firsthand and received a spontaneous lesson on how the sun feeds life to us and to our planet.
I had joined a friend for a day of boating in the Thousand Islands region of the St. Lawrence River one September day when the brilliance of the sun directly overhead caught my attention. Being a fire sign, I had always been drawn to the sun and the life force of energy that seemed to emanate from its rays. While my friend was busy steering the boat, I took the opportunity to observe the sun from where I was comfortably seated at the bow.
From my White Eagle teachings I know that the sun is the life force for all things, however the impact of the sun’s force had never transfixed me in this way before, and I soon found myself unable or unwilling to pull my eyes away. As I continued to gaze at the sun, I was drawn deeper and deeper into its brilliance and found myself slipping into an altered state of consciousness.
In this altered state, I watched as definitive lines took shape around the sun. Two pulsating white lights began to circulate the circumference of the sun in opposite directions—one light travelling clockwise; the other counter-clockwise. From these rings of energy, rays of light emerged and were projected downward towards earth. Yellowish clouds of a misty substance began to float away from this energy field and move outwardly towards the clouds. The substance then passed through the clouds as though the clouds were acting as a filter, and began a slow descent to earth.
While this ‘light’ show was happening, information was being channeled to me that explained how the sun is the life force, or power pack, and our bodies are the receptors. Our aura or energy field draws power from this solar force and the chakras, or energy points in our bodies, are the sparks and plugs so to speak. This was an important revelation to me, one that proved we are not separate from creation but inter-dependent upon the golden life force that sustains us.
The experience reminded me of the ancient Sun-men or Sun-gods, the original brothers of the White Light who came to earth during an early civilization to establish the inner light. These Sun-gods were bigger and physically stronger than men today and they held great spiritual power. With them they brought the ancient wisdom which is the foundation of all religion and contains the mystical knowledge that philosophers and theologians seek. “There is a world composed of finer ethers within your ‘solid’ world; not the spirit life as you understand it, to which you go when your body dies, but something closer to earth. Within this finer world the ancient Brethren of the Sun still live and worship in their Sun temples and Sun cities.”—White Eagle teachings from the book ‘Sun Men of the Americas’ by Grace Cooke.
From their early teachings, mystery schools were established in remote places and the people were taught the divine laws which rule the natural world, and how to live in harmony with these laws, in love and brotherhood. Back then the ancients worshipped the sun, not in the physical sense, but as the life-giver of their world. Sadly most of humanity today is unaware of this deeper connection we have with the sun, that it is the light we are drawn to upon physical death. “The ultimate goal of mankind is that the inner light should become so strong and radiant that even the cells of the physical body are transmuted into finer substances which can overcome mortality.”—A principle of the White Eagle Lodge.
Have you ever experienced the powerful energy of the sun and felt a connection to it as the source of all life?
