But the sun is the source of the light of men since the sun is the source of men.
But really it goes deeper than that. There is something that created the sun too.
Pure life without form probably. Then BANG. The light of the stars is made from the image of the light of life.
I do think that in the beginning, there was nothing,
or possibly there was never nothing,
just pure life w/o form that was light. If light has nothing to reflect off of, then you can't observe it, so perhaps this is why we can't see the light of life, but its all around us all the time. Idk, I think I'm starting to ramble.
49. Jesus said,
“Blessed are the Solitary and Elect,
for you will find The Kingdom.
For you are from it,
and to it you will return.”
50. Jesus said,
“If they say to you, “Where did you come from?”
say to them, “We came from The Light,
the place where The Light came into being on Its own accord
and established Itself and became manifest through their Image.”
If they say to you, “Is it you?”
say, “We are its children, and we are the elect of The Living Father.”
If they ask you, “What is the sign of your Father in you?”
say to them, “It is Movement and Repose.”
19. Jesus said,
“Blessed is he who came into being
before he came into being.
If you become My disciples
and listen to My words,
these stones will minister to you.
For there are five trees for you in Paradise
which remain undisturbed summer and winter
and whose leaves do not fall.
Whoever becomes acquainted with them
will Not experience Death.”
77. Jesus said,
“It is I who Am The Light which is above them all.
It is I who Am The All.
From Me did The All come forth, and unto Me did The All extend.
Split a piece of wood, and I am there.
Lift up the stone, and you Will Find Me there.”
and you Will Find Me there.
Not that I have a huge problem with the Bible... but, it's just a book, written by people who didn't fully comprehend the way the world in which they lived worked. So, unless you've got some air-tight defense for the validity, and authenticity of the Bible (which the world at large would love, I'm sure)... then what makes scripture from the Bible more relevant than the words of the Rig Veda, the Egyptian Book of Coming Forth by Day, the Book of Mormon, or the treatise of Scientology written by L. Ron Hubbard?
The ancient people understood that the sun was important to their well-being: it chased away predators of the night; it made the crops grow; it kept them warm when it got cold; it helped them navigate time and space; and more. But, again, the same leap of faith is required to attribute it to "god". Which god? What evidence supports it being that god? Where is said evidence validated? Why are other "gods" incorrect, etc.
Most importantly, why does it need to be a god? Why can't everyone just see that the sun is what it is: a giant chemical reactor operating of it's own perpetual existence. It does, what it does, because of what it is made out of. Is it so hard to just accept that?
39. Jesus said,
“The Pharisees and the Scribes
have taken The Keys of Knowledge
and Hidden Them.
They themselves have NOT entered,
nor have they allowed to enter
those who wish to.
You, however, be as wise as serpents
and as innocent as doves.”
