A Sense of Joy at Sunrise
After some time exploring the spiritual significance of the solstices and equinoxes, as explained in Belsebuub and Lara’s book, The Path of the Spiritual Sun, I had a dream one night that helped me to feel this significance in a new way…
Celebrating with Friends
In the dream I was with some friends who were also practicing the Religion of the Sun and we were up on what I’d describe as the side of a mountain. We were on level ground but there was a steep falloff about 20 feet from where we stood. Our position gave a big vantage point to overlook a nice green valley below and some mountains in the distance. But most importantly, the sun was going to rise somewhere over the valley, which was significant because we were there to observe the sunrise (it was one of the solstices/equinoxes).
It was dawn and the sky was starting to brighten, but there was no sun yet. We actually didn’t know the precise direction the sun would rise so we just stood there being aware of the present moment, trying to take in the scene, looking out for signs of the sun.
The Sun Begins to Rise
As the run rose, I felt something very special. I perceived the simple beauty of the event, being in nature, observing the sun ascending above the horizon, seeing its intensity grow. But there was more to be sensed than the physical perception…
I felt a sense of triumph and joy. I felt free, having no cares in the world.
I continued feeling this and watching the sun rise until I woke up.
The dream was very short, but it was so vivid, and the feeling I had was so strong.
I can’t say for sure, but in that dream, I feel like I got to glimpse, if only for a second or two, into the deeper meaning of that solar event and the happiness someone could achieve by reaching that corresponding stage within themselves on the path of the spiritual sun.
