Ancient Egyptians and Greeks believed the Sun we see is just the physical form of a higher ‘Intelligible or Spiritual Sun.’ Philo of Alexandria, in Special Laws 1 called it: “The Sun of the Sun, the Intelligible object behind the object comprehensible by sense, and from invisible fountains he supplies the visible beams which our eyes behold.” (See the article on this website titled The Eye of the Sunrunner.
Similarly, our planet Earth has an unseen sphere surrounding it. Scientists have been trying to understand what “holds matter together” and have proposed the Higgs-Boson particle and Dark Matter as possibilities. Our planetary body, just like our human bodies, has an electro-magnetic field around it, but that is a product of the body’s being, rather than what holds it together. It is a manifestation of the Spiritual Sphere behind it, which contains it.
To continue the comparison, the Earth has the Sun above it, a spiritual sphere around it, and a living heart within – which some refer to as Gaia; we humans have our Overself (or Soul-Star) above us, our Spiritual Sphere (or spiritual body) around us and the essential core or intangible heart of our personality within – which I like to refer to as our Solar Heart.
Life in our universe tends to congregate around spheres, not only in the third and fourth dimensions, but also in the fifth. (Dimensions don’t really have numbers, but we need to give them a title to help get our heads around them).
Part of the human journey is learning to honour and be in harmony with the Spheres – not only the physical, but the Sphere of Spirit as well.
