Spirit = Air = To Breathe

Every atom in existence is part of many ecosystems, kingdoms inside of kingdoms inside of kingdoms, worlds without ends.

The meaning of life is to be alive, to have life in abundance with a rich quality of life-force within. It is not defined, nor is it found in the future time. There is no joy, no sensation, and no thought outside of a physical body. Life is not the serious, heavy, lesson-burdened business you would believe, filled with punishments or rewards in the afterlife, a carrot held out for service rendered here and now, to be endowed in the hereafter as joy in varying degrees in between.

Face it and then rejoice in it. Feel the rain on your face, smell the ocean or scent of the forest. If you can do this, you are truly a pagan. Do not be shocked. A pagan was merely a country dweller. The country dwellers celebrated the flesh, the life, the seasons of all things. The pious and sanctimonious society-builders hated them and their earthly ways, yet secretly yearned to be like them in their unashamed freedom to live, to love, to touch. You must learn to play fully and joyfully experiment with the awesome and even amazing possibilities of yourself.


About 50 years ago, people received around three to six hours of natural sunlight per day and now the average exposure to the light is only about 30 to 45 minutes. Sunlight from the full-spectrum rays of daylight are crucial to the human body. Sunlight regulates our body's rhythm, circadian system being our primary regulatory rhythm.

A Father's Wisdom, A Mother's Call

To all ancient cultures the father of all things is the Sun. The mother of all things is Gaea, the Earth. Any truly thinking person would have to agree that this is so. Without them we wouldn't be here. One of the most precious things we have lost over the years, along with walking and drinking enough water each day, is gazing at the sun, the moon and the stars. Sunlight is a nutrient dense brain snack. We are, as the ancient writings declare "Children of Light". Direct sunlight into the eyes in the first hour of sunrise and the last hour of sunset causes the pineal gland (ancient eye, third eye, intuitive eye) to secrete chemicals that can activate regions of the brain that otherwise lay atrophied and dormant. These regions when activated and cultivated can take an individual into elevated mental, emotional and physical realms that are not possible otherwise. Iris means rainbow. At the end of the rainbow is a "pot of gold" This is the ancient legend taught, and it's true. Through star gazing we can build the gifts of creativity; dreams; dream interpretation; imagination; furor loquendi and furor scribendi (which are the range for speech and writing) automatic downloads of songs, poetry, invention, past and future records of human experience.
