The post was inspired by
an older episode of Wife Swap where one of the wives was " a simple-living vegan who believed in sun gazing, not only as a form of meditation but as a form of energy gathering as well. The way they portrayed her was that she was some nut who believed that we could get all of our energy needs from the sun, and then needed very little food to live on, and her wish was that we could live on sun energy alone and no food. "

What do you think? Is sun energy a food source?

Do you think there could come a time where the evolved human body could live substantially off sunlight, or even sunlight alone?

Do you feel less hungry when out in the sun?

Do you use sun gazing / contemplating the sun as a form of meditation or would you like to? (obviously use sun protection and don't stare directly at the sun!)

Do you have a sun dial?

There's quite an interesting article on it here:

Im more drawn to the moon than Sun.
I think the sun is powerful but not enough to feed us. I believe it gives us some vitamins but cannot replace food nor does staying in it lessen my hunger.

Not a food source, but definitely an energy source for our bodies.

Who knows what humans will turn into in the future!

Do you feel less hungry when out in the sun?
Yes, because of heat exhaustion but not because it's a food source. Our bodies require less "meaty" items and more salad/fruit/veggie stuff in the summer b/c it's a cooling source for our bodies. That doesn't mean the sun is feeding us though, unless you count it growing our gardens!

Do you use sun gazing / contemplating the sun as a form of meditation or would you like to? (obviously use sun protection and don't stare directly at the sun!) I've seen the sun a few times, the sky has to be just right so the sun doesn't hurt my eyes but it was very peaceful. I meditate in the sun with my eyes closed every now and then.

Do you have a sun dial?
Nope.

That's really interesting Jackie.

I don't think it can "feed" us exactly but I do think it is a source of vitamins and energy and that it releases feel-good hormones. Sometimes when it is hot I don't feel as hungry and I always assumed it was because the sun supplied vitamins etc. I didn't know that about why you feel like eating salad in the summertime!

I enjoy the sun (safely) but can't say I've really used it as a focus for any of my spiritual endeavours. I quite like sun dials. If we had a big enough garden, it would be interesting to have one.

In a way it's a food source. If there were no sun there would be no plants, so no fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains. Don't think the animals we eat would fare too well either.
