A new kind of solar energy

Solar energy is often touted as a wonderful source of sustainable energy. In our current energy crisis, which is caused by our dependency on finite fossil fuels, sustainability of energy to keep the wheels of our economy running and preserve our quality of life is a high priority.

But true sustainability and quality of life must extend to the world beyond this one. If humans do not enjoy eternal life and blessedness then sustainability is meaningless.

There is another kind of alternative and sustainable energy source that can keep the wheels of economy running and improving the quality of our lives for an eternity. To tap into this infinite source of energy requires a new type of solar panel. This new solar panel represents a new array within the human mind.

What is unknown to most theologians (not to mention scientists) is that God’s heaven has its own source of light and heat. It is called the Spiritual Sun. Rather than giving off physical light and heat, it emanates God’s Love and Wisdom. The human spirit is sustained by this energy source in the same way that one’s physical body is sustained and maintained by the astronomical sun’s thermodynamic processes.

We sense the ontological reality of this Spiritual Sun when some passion or love generates inner “warmth” in our hearts, and when we “see” mental concepts from a rational source of light that affects the mind’s eye. Human intelligence (and interiority) is different from that of other animals because our minds are constructed to be more sensitive to the influence of the Spiritual Sun. Without such a metaphysical source of heat and light we would not be able to think or feel in a human way.

But growing up in the physical world only prepares our mind to act as a “low-tech” solar panel when it comes to tapping into the inexhaustible energy of the Spiritual Sun. There are special instructions available for those who wish to upgrade the efficiency of this spiritual technology. It amounts to an upgrade in the values we choose to guide our hearts and minds.

These special instructions, mentioned above, are generally made available to us in the form of “religion.” But more specifically, these instructions represent following God’s tenets of sincere spiritual love. (Any doctrine that separates knowledge from love is a false doctrine.) When we adopt God’s tenets of Love into our lives we fine-tune our spiritual solar panels to be more sensitive to the Spiritual Sun and the sustaining influence of the warmth of God’s Love and enlightenment from God’s Truth.

Those who tap into this non-physical sun will have access to an energy source that can sustain a noble quality of life through this world and the next! The angels of heaven are simply humans who have traded their worldly behavior for an upgrade.
