Sun is the giver
There is but one giver and there are many to receive. Sun is the giver. The planets and the beings of the planets in the solar system that are innumerable are all receivers; one giver and many receivers. The receivers are innumerable. The giver is but One. Did you notice this?
Sun not only gives light but also gives life. Life and light come to us through the Sun to us. The Sun ray contains seven colours.
Each colour bestows a virtuous ability. They are:
3. Intelligent activity.
4. Harmony in conflict.
6. Devotion and offering.
7. Orderly functioning.
These abilities are daily bestowed by Sun besides life and light. For this reason Sun is seen as the visible God by the ancients in all civilisations.
Sun is the most brilliant one that we see in the visible world. The key to his brilliance is his ability to give, to offer to others. He is the lone ranger in the sky that is ever engaged in offering life, light and abilities to the beings. This functioning of the Sun gave the clue to the humans. They realised that through giving and offering one shines forth. But to give or to offer one should have the needed abilities. Abilities have to be gained in life only to offer them to benefit the society. Education is meant for this. Education is but a sustained development of abilities which can be offered to the society.
May Sun be your goal in your effort to grow and to shine-forth.
