Basically, when humankind underwent the great “fall” several millennia ago, we started incarnating into physical bodies and, as we did so, we divided the two main components of our non-material selves. We divided Consciousness and Life, according the Taoists. Or, to use other terms – following the same order as those two words, Consciousness and Life – we split our Spirit and Soul, our Head and Heart, our Human Mind from our Divine Essence. Thus, we fell from the Undivided Tao, or the Way, tasting the fruit of good and evil, learning the Duality, or Yin and Yang. And in the process our conscious sense of “I Am” got lodged in the brain – which is not where we want it to be when we die, because the brain dies too.
To reunite these two, and end the continual cycle of reincarnation, our Human Spirit or Consciousness must dive into our true Heart, the Soul, where Life dwells. This is not achieved by being clever. We need to lovingly restore the relationship between identity-self and soul-self. The way we bring our Light and Life together is through Love. Self-Love.
When the illumination of the Sun is received into the head through the eyes, (and, as we have noted before, the eye is the most Sun-like organ in the body), we consciously and lovingly circulate it into our Solar Heart, which is the non-material counterpart, or force centre, behind the physical heart. Yes, it is easier said than done, and it takes practice!
