Sun Meditation

Who can participate?
Anyone can participate in the meditation who possesses a clear, material consciousness (which must not be impaired by drugs, alcohol or a severe psychological illness). It is imperative that the decision to participate in the meditation is completely voluntary. Participants, say, a child for instance, must not be commanded into joining.

How old should the participant be?

As soon as a child is old enough to comprehend the issues (and only if the child willingly and voluntarily requests to participate).

Sun Meditation

This is a concentration exercise you can do with your children, only if they want to participate.candle flame

Sit down in a comfortable chair three feet away from a burning candle.

Totally relaxed, you observe the lower part of the candle flame for five minutes, no more than that.

If you are unable to keep the exact time, use an alarm with a mild tone, so you are not startled. On the first day of exercising, its absolutely important that you JUST think of the word ‘sun’, nothing else, use passive aggressiveness by ignoring other thoughts.

During those five minutes ONLY and ONLY the word ‘sun’ is in your mind, everything else during that time is foreign.

The following day adds just one minute more, so when you started on Monday with 5 days, you concentrate 6 minutes on Tuesday, and so forth.

When you reach the 12-minute mark, you blank your mind TOTALLY for 12 minutes during 6 days.

After these 6 days you can extend the concentration time from 12 to 15 minutes and just think of a golden or red rose in your thoughts, again ALL other thoughts are alien and irrelevant in that time-period.

Then you reach a stage where you just have wishful daydreams (preferably one that can be realized) during those 15 minutes of concentration.

You can still use the candle flame as a focal point.

The schedule:

  • Day 1 – 5 Minutes ‘Sun’
  • Day 2 – 6 Minutes ‘Sun’
  • Day 3 – 7 Minutes ‘Sun’
  • Day 4 – 8 Minutes ‘Sun’
  • Day 5 – 9 Minutes ‘Sun’
  • Day 6 – 10 Minutes ‘Sun’
  • Day 7 – 11 Minutes ‘Sun’
  • Day 8 – 12 Minutes ‘Sun’
  • Day 9 – 12 Minutes ‘Thoughtless’ (Think of nothing)
  • Day 10 – 12 Minutes ‘Thoughtless’
  • Day 11 – 12 Minutes ‘Thoughtless’
  • Day 12 – 12 Minutes ‘Thoughtless’
  • Day 13 – 12 Minutes ‘Thoughtless’
  • Day 14 – 12 Minutes ‘Thoughtless’
  • Day 15 – 15 Minutes ‘Red or Golden Rose’
  • Day 16 – 15 Minutes ‘Red or Golden Rose’
  • Day 17 – 15 Minutes ‘Red or Golden Rose’
  • Day 18 – 15 Minutes ‘Red or Golden Rose’
  • Day 19 – 15 Minutes ‘Red or Golden Rose’
  • Day 20 – 15 Minutes ‘Red or Golden Rose’
  • Day 21 – 15 Minutes ‘Wishful dream’

These exercises will enable you to have peace of mind, so that your consciousness is (more) free of random and irrelevant thoughts, it will give peace in the Psyche and it will give you much needed TIME between thinking and acting, and thus preventing acting on thoughts or feelings which can bring harm to oneself or others.

The results of these exercises WON’T come easy, it’s not a one-month, half-baked course, only strict practice and continuous repetition will bear fruit.

Don’t be disappointed when your results are not what you expect on the first time, try, try and try again, the real effort and reward is in both reaching your goal and by walking the path that leads to that goal.
