GLORY BE TO THE SUN, all hail to the Sun, the eternally resplendent, most majestic and magnificent Sun! The sun who is the source of all the light and life that create our earthly home.
In this great sphere of fire, everything is in turbulent motion, great billowing flames, flashing flares and rippling rays burst out from a boiling bubbling cauldron of frenzied pure energy, pure light. Yet even in this explosion of frenzied movement, there is some ordering principle at work, ensuring that the circle is maintained and that the chaos conforms to a hidden harmony and rhythm.
There is no stillness here, but still there is a certain kind of peace: a ringing, roaring, raging kind of silence.
