In the Spring time, latent seeds in the earth’s soil, tiny buds on millions of trees, myriad different kinds of plants awaken to a new life cycle as they feel the Sun’s healthfull warmth. One by one each one begins to change the landscape into a glorious Arcadia with vibrant colors, intoxicating scents of freshness and spectacular beauty! Sunny joy spreads to humans! to birds returning! to the wildlife! to the domesticated animals!
With the warmth of the beautyfull Sun, women, men, teenagers, children begin to want to reconnect with the Earth’s soil, and with smiles and eagerness they kneel down with their garden tools and plant new seeds to sustain themselves during the summer, and for many, throughout the year.
In the Mayan world, as well as in the Germania and Celtic worlds, with all the Indigenous people, and on all continents, in the ancient past during the return of the Sun’s warmth, our spiritually dedicated ancestors always took time to honor the Sun and they gave gratitude for its all-giving powers of life.
With our special Earth-Loving Ancestors, praying and singing to the Sun was a very intimate ritual which took place every day. As the Sun first appeared in the East, for a few moments they would face this Divine Miraculous Creation and with outstretched arms say, “Thank You! You are welcome into our life and on Earth!”
When I first started to also do this spiritual ritual, I froze with self-apprehension when someone would look at me. “They’ll think I’m such and such and such … .” But I came to the conclusion that if they lacked my gratefullness for the welcome Sun which is nurturing my life, my plant foods, nature’s creations, and all Individuals, then it is for them to shy away and not say or think anything disparaging. It took a few times before my courage set me free. Now, I stand with open arms, face the East, welcome the Sun and vibrate with joy all day long!
Honoring the Sun is a practise which admits that the All Perfect of All Creation is Very Wise … beyond the comprehension of any human being. The Sun is our closest star – one of billions of other stars in our Milky Way Galaxy. The Sun’s diameter is 2,715,395 miles (4.730,005 Kilometres); and its distance from our Celestial Rainbow Planet Earth is nearly 93 million miles … and it is one million times bigger than Earth!
Our Mayan Wise Elders knew this and so did our own Ancient Wise Elders on different continents. They also understood the Sun to be a symbol of the All Perfect One the Source of All Perfect Motion, All Perfect Designs, All Perfect Creations and of Infinity. They also knew that it was impossible to comprehend such A Great Most Brillant Being but they came to accept that the Sun is its Symbol since the Sun shines its loving, nurturing rays to each and every creation. There is no favoritism!
Yes, I proudly open up my arms and welcome the Sun rising again as it has done so steadfastly over the easterly horizon for billions of years! It also amazes me that its motion is so perfectly regular and we depend on the Sun’s daily regularity to live our days and our life on Celestial Rainbow Planet Earth! And…as We The People are Ascending into a Higher Consciousness maybe it is time to put aside any prejudices and to Honor the Wondrous Life-Giving Sun with open arms!
