Did you try many times to watch directly into the sun?
Impossible at daytime, right? In the morning and evening, or when it is closed by clouds, it is far easier.
The light of the sun can be seen as a symbol of truth. The full deep truth of life and creation is so “bright”, that it burns everyone. Only those who are very strong and can bear it, are getting the pleasure to see it in its full beauty.
Imagine You would be able to see the sun entirely. How the fire moves on its surface.
We can take the simple example of the death. The death of our own life. Or also the death which is omnipresent around us. The death of our beloved ones, but also of all things which seem so consistent at the moment. The house we live in, our car, money, this planet, this universe… EveryTHING dies once. But we don’t focus on it. We don’t observe it. Same as the sun is shining daily, but we rarely watch it directly.
We are not able to face this truth. To feel it always, that everything is able to die and could die NOW, in this moment! Where is any guarantee that anything will continue living in 2 minutes? NOWHERE! But we never consider it.
If we would feel how radical this uncertainty is, we would have to face the fear of death.
