Feeding from the Sun...

The sun, it foreshadows our very being. It is the underlying current that creates life and sustains it nourishingly, but too much and it is a long-burning powerful force. The destruction is a land turned barren with a forecast of death. Those that live by the harvest and by the land, they understand the effects of drought and floods, theyr animals and livelihood depend upon the eco-system. Every facet of work and routine revolves around the daily event of waking up to the sun. Beauty Divine of the sun worshippers that baske theyr bodies, even unto death’s warning. Bila; the cannibal Aboriginal Goddess who provided light for the worlde by cooking her victims over a giant flame, she was chased away but the worlde was then plunged into darkness, so Bila was captured and tethered to the earth. Her tale still lingers today with sunbakers tanning and the effects melanoma cancer. In the spiritual scheme of things you could say, her appetite appeased by tribute. Ra, Apollo, Helios and Mithras a few of the solar Gods of time before; Hathor, Brighid, Astarte, Bast and Sekhmet, Goddesses of the sun realm... Theyr tales aligning with the daily rising and setting force of the sun since man knew. The wonder of the sun once left man in awe. Primitive human evolved growing alongside each other and the routine of daily needs of hunting, gathering and clan building. The modern day man has mastered the art of building weapons of the sun, nuclear bombs. As hystory has served, the need of the sun has turned into our want, and our demise. Well, They did warn Us!...
Just as the moon affects your emotions and sub-conscious and also the watery tides, the Sun will be felt by your body, its conscience-selfe, the air and the earth too. When the sun shines are you not more active and therefore happier? Do you not warm up once more, when life has turned your bones cold with dread? Magick can happen feeding from the sun, the Light awakens our soul and nourishes our intellect bringing to form its creative Life. The sun displays storms of such ferocity that affect not only the fiery orb and our earth, but also the planets of the solar system that we reside in. Thus it does inspire and evolve not only earth (us), but the entirety of the space (our surroundings) also. As Above, So Below, As Is In, Is Also Out. A spiritual concept of the web that connects and weaves life together, what we have always seen as a higher power of faith with our internal knowing. That is not without survivalist basic instincts built into our bodies, re/evolution.
Many sadly have forgotten the olde ways of nature, listening to our inspiration and psychic connection to the power of sun. But once more the basic instinct of survival that has seen us forge opportunistic paths to a society of steel and concrete, materialistic ways and forgotten silence, a need to begin truly hearing around and within us has risen its head; causing epic eruptions not only upon the sun but internally within us. Perhaps if we take more time to spend a little each day in the sunshine it would make such a difference not only to our bodies, but to the silence of our mind and feel the connection of All That Is. When we are calm, so may the sun find rest too and when the sun becomes calm, the balance is maintained as it should be.
Feeding from the Sun...
This is a simple but extremely effective meditation that can be done anywhere or any time during the day, as long as there is sunshine about.
Stand tall, straight and proud, planting your feet to the ground. Barefoot if you can is best. Feel the earth between your toes, wiggle them in the grass and think about the connection that is you and the earth, how the planet you walk upon is Alive, just as you are. Once you have greeted Mother Earth, turn and greet the Sun. Feet and back straight, feel the power rise from your feet, up your legs and along your body to the solar plexus (navel, belly button area) where it stays and the Earth’s energy waits for the Sun. Raise your arms high to the sky bringing your hands together, fingers now touching to form a triangle. This is where you shall absorb the Sun’s energy and bring it into you. Face the sun, aligning the triangle formed from your own hands to the sun itself. This is how you Greet the Sun. Without looking directly at the fiery, burning orb allow its warmth to run through your fingers and filling the triangle with its nourishing energy. Feel the Sun’s energy drawing into you via your skin. Envision the veins in your fingers then hands, the capillaries warming and flowing freely and filling with this energy. The triangle between your fingers is now completely filled with the nourishing light that is the Sun. As your blood now runs freely with this warmth, feel the power move down your hands, to your arms, to your belly and arriving to your solar plexus chakra. You are now Feeding from the Sun. Draw this energy from the sun as much and as long as you feel the need to do so, until inspiration flows and the warmth of life resonates within. The sun’s energy and fire light now goes through your middle, the solar plexus is fully fed and nourished where it now flows down your legs and through your feet, into the Earth connecting all together as One; the Sun, the Earth and You. Mother Earth too feels the energy workings, She receives your Light with Love and returns with Love. Once you have finished, bow to the Sun and give Thanks. Place your hands to the Earth as are your feet, grounding yourself back here again.

This burnt and barren landscape
Of a Time I know not when
Haunts my dreams and burns my eyes
Ingrains a sense of Forever and eternal Time
Twice, this scene of despair
For all its emptiness
Only Love fills the air
A tiny, glimmer of Hope
Although nothing surrounds
An image of Two, then theyr is only One
Ancient lands of Times gone past
Pierces the Veils and becomes my Now
As you See, it is all only One
Past, Present, Future; only Time repeats
I adhere, I digress:
I apologise for this rambling mess
And begin my fated tale once again
A dream did come
The sky bright orange and burnt red
Two lonely souls sitting side by side
And knee to knee
The land looked vast with nothing upon its shore
The horizon showed only emptiness forever more
What happened? What was it did they See?
I saw the worlde was burnt and barren
Left with only You and Mee
Many moons and dreams come to pass
Again theyr I am
In this burnt and barren ancient land
Here now theyr stands alone only One
Not the Two a much different One
A glorious and gleaming dark Man
Over theyr upon the horizon
He sees me and stretches his arms straight out wide
Strong energy to fill the sky
Even more stunning this wonderful being
Is proud to show mee he has upon his back
The most beautyfull and big
Black and powerful feathered Wings
These scenes of Life and a Fate
A Love and Remembrance
Of a Worlde and Time gone by
The Time it does Forever fly
This vision of emptiness
But only Love
Enters my Mynd.
Where I walked, a crow came and watched as I passed by. Then I sat. Where I sat, when I turned around was a dead crow. The poor crow was not only dead, it was missing its feet and legs and also the head. What was sadly left upon the feathery torso, was its upturned outstretched wings.
Only left with it's wings.
Earlier that morning, I saved a man on the street. Knocked out cold and left on the road, later on I thought because I know who you are, I could of left you for dead.
But I helped him up instead.
