The Sun Is Good For You & All Living Things
I have always known that the sun is good for me.
Living in New Orleans, as I child, I don’t remember my mother ever warning me to stay out of the sun, maybe drink water, and don’t overheat.
Nor, did she put sunscreen all over my body, as mothers do today.
Interestingly, there wasn’t much talk about skin cancer, or the sun causing it, in those days.
I never believed the hype being propagated about the sun for one simple fact. The sun sustains all life. We would not be able to survive without the sun. Life would not have begun had the sun not penetrated through the oceans, turning organisms to plants and marine life, and so on.
In the past, the sun was regarded as a divine power, and was equated to God.
Nowadays, the sun seems to be regarded as our enemy. I, however, still believe that the sun is divine. I hope that I can convince you, if you’re not already convinced.

I make it a point to get sunlight every day.
I usually take a stroll through Washington Park, in Denver, Colorado, USA, to take in the sun, the oxygen from trees, and the beauty of the flowers in the colonial gardens.
While walking, I pray, and usually stop to sit under a tree to meditate, then to get writing inspirations. Trees inspire me. I’ve written several poems on trees.
Soaking in the sun is a very creative, healing, and spiritual experience for me. After taking these excursions, I instantly feel rejuvenated in body, mind, and spirit. When I get home and look in the mirror, my skin glows in health and vibrancy.
Of course, here in Colorado, we are thousands of feet above sea level, as high as 14,000 feet. I am no scientist, but I do wonder if being closer to the sun is better than getting sun from low elevations.
From Colorado Base and Elevation Maps – Netstate.Com
