Our body may process and express the energy of life, but the life itself is energy, not matter. The body of our local star creates organized and complex energy fields. One holds the solar system in its protective embrace. A dead ball of gas? Perhaps not.
It was not science that branded solar religions as primitive and ignorant, but organized religion. In the light of a conscious Sun, discover a Universe brimming with intelligence and design that needs no Intelligent Designer.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are! Jane Taylor (1783 - 1824)
"The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do." Galileo Galilei
"If at first the idea is not absurd, there is no hope for it." Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
"Our ancestors worshiped the Sun, and they were far from foolish. And yet the Sun is an ordinary, even a mediocre star. If we must worship a power greater than ourselves, does it not make sense to revere the Sun and stars?" Carl Sagan, in Cosmos
In real worship, we do not just do ritualistic worship but we try to imbibe the qualities of the one we are worshipping. Rig Veda
When I have a terrible need of - shall I say the word - religion, then I go out and paint the stars. Vincent van Gogh
Look on the rising sun: there God does live
And gives his light, and gives his heat away.
And flowers and trees and beasts and men receive
Comfort in morning joy in the noon day. William Blake, The Little Black Boy 1789
We must see that consciousness is neither an isolated soul nor the mere function of a single nervous system, but of that totality of interrelated stars and galaxies which makes a nervous system possible. Alan Watts (1915 - 1973)
"Sun worship is fairly simple. There's no mystery, no miracles, no pageantry, no one asks for money, there are no songs to learn, and we don't have a special building where we all gather once a week to compare clothing. And the best thing about the sun, it never tells me I'm unworthy. Doesn't tell me I'm a bad person who needs to be saved. Hasn't said an unkind word. Treats me fine. So, I worship the sun. But, I don't pray to the sun. Know why? I wouldn't presume on our friendship. It's not polite." George Carlinvideo here

"Sun of gOd should definitely be taught in schools and universities all over the globe."
Frances Lynn, blogger, author "Crushed"
“Sun of gOd presents a perfectly outrageous hypothesis: The sun is a conscious, living organism residing in a thriving galactic community, thinking stellar thoughts that span the entire universe. Surely this is nonsense. Except that the more you read the more a conscious universe begins to make sense. Gregory Sams’ book is a clearly written and persuasively reasoned argument to think about the sun in a radically new and refreshing way.”
