But something went wrong with Elagabalus: he developed an insatiable sexual appetite which he sought to satisfy with many partners of both genders, had five wives and one main husband above all his other minions, and then became a transsexual, while talking to his doctors about having a sex-change. Being highly sexed is not unknown among ancient leaders, but this young man’s real perversity expressed itself in having a number of his citizens killed for his amusement, perhaps even pleasure. Because of this, as well as increasingly eccentric behaviour, his soldiers eventually turned on him and he was brutally assassinated after five years’ reign, at the age of nineteen.
So, what went wrong? How did this handsome youth who started out as an appointed Priest of the Sun turn nasty? Human beings have both positive and negative polarity within them. Metaphysicians and mystics generally urge people to strive for balance between these two poles. As Tesla observed, the Sun’s positive polarity can form a circuit with the primarily negative polarity of the Earth. I believe that humans can consciously complete this circuit and we can train ourselves to incorporate an extra positive Solar particle within us, thus tipping the scales toward the Light. For analogy, there is an asymmetry between antimatter, so even the tiniest amount of matter – say, just one particle per billion – gives it (matter) the upper hand over antimatter in our physical universe. Likewise, students of the Solar Sciences strive to acquire this extra particle of Light, based on Love. It could well be said that Love is what is missing in the search for a unified ‘field of everything.’ If practitioners absorb Sunlight and interact with the Solar Disc for self-centred reasons, or with the intention of controlling and/or harming others (in what is sometimes referred to as Black Arts) it can result in them forming a very dark and undesirable personality.
Elagabalus might have started out life with good intentions but, like so many who are given absolute power, especially at a young age, he was corrupted. And in his case, harnessing the energy of the Sun for all the wrong reasons had disastrous results. Remember to always build your Life and Light on a foundation of Love.
