The Children’s Twenty Count describes our world as we live in it, and the powers that influence us here in our attempt to establish interconnection, interreliability and interdependence with all things.
As we begin to discuss the lower numbers, we begin with the powers that are the “so below“…the numbers that are related to this 3rd dimensional reality and “all that is green“…
1 = Grandfather Sun
Out of the void (also known as “0”, zero ) came first Grandfather Sun. When we say “Grandfather Sun” we mean the actual sun around which our planet Earth revolves.
Grandfather sun is light, illumination, enlightenment and knowledge. Let’s look at the word “enlightenment.” It means to put light into, to lighten up. It is plain to see that when Grandfather Sun shines on the planet, it definitely lightens things up.
This teaching is not only literal, but translated into an internal symbolic sense. It is the great symbol of gaining knowledge. Within us there is a fire from within which burns inside us. It is our spark, our sexuality. We speak of this as the “little sun”. It is our own Grandfather Sun which burns within us.
When we are connected with the external Sun, we can ask it to ignite our own inner fire. Using our awakened inner fire, we can connect to Grandfather Sun. This is the male seed for all life. The fire of the male seed explodes as the dance of active-conceptive energy.
