The sun is equally generous to all, especially to those who live out in the open — underprivileged or flora and fauna. The burning sun gets comfort and reward in the smile of sunflowers and dancing kids that enjoy heavenly bliss in its morning glory.
Trees pray to the generous sun to return soon whenever it goes to the western horizon. This is the moment the birds and animals know that their friend is retiring and they have to hide in a safe corner with a hope that they will again be able to see and feel the warmth of generosity in the universe.
Such is the magic of the sun’s egalitarianism where the have-nots have a bigger share than the haves. This generosity of finding reward in the satisfaction of others is the key to happiness. The harmony of the universe is in generous spreading and not in coiling up. A river dies if it stops flowing. In the poem, Stagnant Water, Ellie Shelley wrote: Water that stands still becomes a/ poisonous petri dish of parasites/ No one willingly drinks it/ No one, not even dogs can survive on it.
Spiritual guru Mirra Alfassa rightly said that if one were spread out in all things, if all the vibrations which come and go expressed the need to merge into everything, to widen, to grow, not by remaining within one’s limits but coming out of them, and finally to be identified with everything, one would no longer have anything to lose for one would have everything.
