SUN OF GOD by Ron McVan

Amid the radiant orbs, that more than deck, that animate the sky,
The life-infusing suns of other worlds.....
The enlighten'd few.....
they in their powers exult, that wondrous force of thought,
which mounting spurns this dusky spot, and measures all the sky.
James Thomson - 1746

The sun as symbol of both God the creator and of his representative son, to the Egyptians, was a symbol of immortality, for, while the sun died every night, it rose again with each ensuing dawn. From the sun came the concept of the Trinity which finds its way into all the great religions. Trinities in every instance represent the threefold form of the one Supreme Intelligence. When Christians proclaim that one cannot find the father except through the son Jesus Christ, it is that Jesus, as solar deity, not unlike Baldur of Euro based Wotanism, or Lugh and Bel of the Celtic pantheon, or Apollo of the Olympian pantheon, or Ra, Horus, or Thoth-Hermes of ancient Aryan Egypt all likewise serve their respective religion as son of God, teachers of spiritual truth and bearers of light.

Without the sun there is no light or life only darkness and death. We know now that God is not the literal sun but it is through the light of the sun that God makes his presence and influence known and by the sun that all life grows and flourish. All are but parts of one stupendous whole, whose body, Nature is, and God the soul. No matter what religion you choose to practice one should always strive to attain full sun-consciousness, the literal door to human soul perfection and only through the light life giving force of God can mankind ever hope to progress in his long and arduous journey back to the source.

The sun generates in all forms of life the needed vitality and the urge to move forward. Within us we possess our own solar fire and through the discipline of our will that solar fire can be used to achieve its object. Unlike other life forms, man has the ability to shape his own destiny. The sun inspires us to seek God, light from the dark, unreal to the real, death to immortality. It is the duty of man to play his part in this great rational whole, to subordinate himself to the universal harmony, to subject his will to law and reason, to help realize the will of God.

An atheist will proclaim that God does not exist on the premise that he cannot see him. God is not of this lower dimension but his being or presence permeates all dimensions of the extended universe. When a doctor dissects a human body he cannot see a man's soul therein nor will a brain surgeon find a single thought in a brain laid open before him. And yet, soul and spirit and thoughts work through these organs of the flesh just as God works through our soul and thoughts. All around us are unseen entities, just as the many forces of mind staggering powers such as electricity, radio waves, magnetism, atomic force and so on. Likewise, neither thought, essence, or life can be seen by the naked eye.

All living life is but a thought in the mind of God just as we ourselves live within the physical 'world thought' of mankind. If someone says the word 'Paris', the mind immediately thinks of France and perhaps Notre Dame or the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower is nothing more than a projected thought form from the mind of its designer. If we were to unbolt and dismantle the Eiffel Tower piece by piece all that would remain would be one big ugly heap of metal of no significance. It is the single thought that creates something out of nothing. Likewise, once the soul is absent from our flesh it is as useless as that of a worm or garden slug. Without God in our reality and his creative thought to provide us form and purpose we would be as insignificant as that heap of metal. It is the
God force that holds the scales of life, but it is mans freedom of choice to do as he will with his body, mind, actions and relationships with others. Man does not often take into consideration the idea of how his every thought, his every word, sets in motion the Karmic pendulum.

Many Christians mistakenly refer to Jesus as "God" and it would be equally wrong for Wotanists to view their own Son of Light, Baldur, as the All High God of Creation. At best they certainly can serve as Gods representatives and lesser gods over Man with the real ability of guiding mankind to God, but they are not the source of the light, only God the absolute can be that. Christians, too often get caught up in the personality of Jesus and even build churches around his personality. That this happens in Christianity as with most all religions is due fundamentally from the need of man to have a personality of human character to worship.

The Christian bible itself starts off with its own personal creation story that in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. God created the heavens and the earth, not Jesus! All the ethnic pantheons of gods make it very clear that the gods are fallible. We can relate to these lesser divinities because they are like us in many respects and thereby it becomes an easier task for mankind to learn their life lessons. Our ethnic gods serve as archetypes that help mankind to understand God and direct us to the majesty of his essence and thereby deliver us from the low conscious state of gross matter through which we now exist. The law still holds good that man's religious consciousness is transferred from earth to the moon, from the moon to the sun, and then further extended and distributed among a number of deities more or less closely associated with the various heavenly bodies, ultimately leading back to God, the source of all that is.

The moon (like its corresponding "element" water) symbolizes Emotion; the sun (like fire) symbolizes intellect. Man's brain and heart are the microcosmic analogues of the moon and sun. Eventually, the human soul will attain complete control of the warring lower elements of its conflicting nature, symbolized as the serpent-fire locked within the earth. The sun, shining in man's heart center, rises in strength and glory to illumine the earthly mind and our whole being, enabling the soul to function henceforth in the solar body. The ancients taught that the greater life cycle of man consists of about 800 physical lives.

Darkness can never uplift the soul of man, or bring him the lasting comfort of true bliss; only the light of God can do that through his divine ray of life giving power. God is the light that radiates in the darkness (chaos). Man is a composition of spirit and matter and through that union is generated the intellectual principle. Danger arises when a person's mental knowledge and intellectual development outweighs his spiritual unfoldment, for this leads to mental and spiritual arrogance, which can reverse the whole process of spiritual growth. This is why the great knowledge of the mysteries are obscured from the unworthy majority of mankind because the ignorance, arrogance and lower untrustworthy nature of man would grossly violate and abuse such sacred works of higher learning. Pythagoras was of the belief that it was ignorance and dissipation, and not age, that destroyed the body. Whatever the case may be, it has proven out over and over again that man's audacity is far in excess of his ability and that his thinking process has actually… degenerated since the golden ages of antiquity. We have moved from a state of fertility to sterility. Truth still remains the supreme fact, the most practical and reasonable of all beings and essences.

There is an essential need for our ethnic pantheons of god archetypes which is why they have always existed since the beginning of man's spiritual development. These primordial images remain in our D.N.A. and work through us as a human being and as a race. A man that Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe much admired, Carl Gustav Carus (1789-1869) had this to say: "Insofar as the idea of life is no other than the idea of an eternal manifestation of the divine essence through nature, it belongs among those original insights of reason that do not come to man from outside......These insights open up in the inwardness of man; they must reveal themselves and, once a man has reached a certain level of development, they will always reveal themselves."

Every God and Goddess represents a particular aspect of nature and divinity exemplified within our own being and the adventures of gods, goddesses, myths and legends are often parables of the phenomena of our own interior and exterior experience. Archetypes are capable of manifesting as autonomous psychoid forces in that middle realm where what we call spirit and matter interact and should never be taken lightly. Our ancestors had a far greater intimate understanding of their divine ethnic gods and goddesses and gave them the highest of honor and respect and built mankind’s finest temples and monuments to their worthy names.

Our ethnic gods and divinities serve and guide us as heroic ideals to be appreciated and emulated and can intervene into our daily lives and consciousness while providing us with both wisdom and strength in times of need. Man however still needs to understand how the microcosmic sun within, reflects the macrocosmic SUN OF GOD and how Gods being permeates all living creatures, nature and the universe. Not until man has found the continuity of the divine functions operating in his always active unconsciousness, can he grasp the concept of the real potential that can elevate his being and soul to its highest stage of spiritual development. Many equivocate upon what should be expected of man within the narrow time-frame of his short fleeting life. Should he go this way or that way, sacrifice this, or pay penitence for that? Should he be with this religion or that religion? Put an end once and for all to the discussion of what a good man should do or should be...... AND BE ONE!!!

"The star is the god and the goal of man. The inner star is the "one guiding god" and the place where the soul travels after death. Approaching closer the star on the zenith of one's inner world helps one. Realize that it too, is a sun. Thus, the star and God are sun and are one. With this knowledge of the pagan path of redemption, the grateful dead become silent and vanish up into the night sky to travel to seek their own inner stars."
