Sunism™ is a spiritual belief founded in Australia with a simple message - all life comes from the energy of the sun. People united with love, worshipping the sun as the centre and higher power of our solar system. The sun can be all-powerful and blinding or gentle and caressing. It can cause droughts or storms, it is our focus of reverie. It generates its energy by nuclear fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium.
I have studied many world religions at University level, including Aboriginal, Egyptian, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Hare Krishna, and have taken what I relate to and blended it with science to bring forth Sunism™.
Historically, the monotheistic belief in the sun began with Pharaoh Akhenaten from Ancient Egypt. He and his wife were the first recorded people to believe in one abstract God, the Sun or Aten represented this deity. He also showed respect to women; Nefertiti, his wife, was represented as an equal and he demonstrated love to his daughters. He saw his girls as being worthy unlike Arab countries before Muhammad, that buried baby girls alive and such places like China that prefer males to females. It is very sad that King Tut (Tutankhamen), Akhenaten's heir, changed his name from Tutankhaten, which meant "Living Image of Aten" and in doing so, renounced the Sun God. Well, it is time to resurrect Akhenaten and Nefertiti's dream of worship to the sun. To unearth their gold and what a place to do it, in Australia, where the largest gold nugget in the world was found. It is the oldest continent with the longest living civilisation, the Aboriginal people. We of the 21st century, the time is right to blend the newest European culture, Australians and a religious history that goes back to the Pharaohs.
Sunism™ has been influenced by the Australian Aboriginal religion. The Sun as animistic, having a soul started the creation myth. The Land, The Dreaming and the interconnectedness of all things has been embraced by Sunism™. Imagine Adam and Eve never falling from grace, remaining in the garden, unembarrassed by their nakedness. Not worried by their mortality for they believe without doubt in their God, the Sun. I have blended Aboriginal totemism, Hinduism and science to come up with my own belief in reincarnation. We have the same carbon atoms as the stars and dinosaurs that roamed the Earth many years ago.
Light when blocked by objects casts a shadow, our dark unconscious is like that shadow. The Black Sun is that symbol from Egyptian scriptures, the “hidden one” or Amen. We need to acknowledge and work on this dark force constructively and creatively through therapy and medication to diminish its power over us.
The sun, moon and star make the trinity. We are made of star dust. The sun or sunne (Old English feminine before 16th Century AD, pronounced sun) has both masculine and feminine qualities.
We believe that people are born innocent and should be nurtured by the community rather than just the family unit.
Believe in the Sun as being the one uniting God, joining us all together.
