Spread the love

As nature lovers, we can so relate to this popular meme:

Live by the sun, love by the moon.

We love to be outdoors in nature, and always pause for the splendor of a sunrise, sunset or moonlit night. These simple, “everyday” miracles, feed the soul and bring perspective on the little problems of life.

Nature gives us cause to pause and breath in more of what matters.

Let’s explore the symbology here. Wikipedia says:[1]

The ancient Egyptian god of creation, Amun is also believed to reside inside the sun.

The sun is symbolically synonymous with soul. It is that which illumines our world in the same way our souls illuminate our lives. The moon is illuminated by the sun in the same way that our emotions are illuminated—and qualified—by our souls.
