The Path of the Spiritual Sun – New Free eBook Released

//The Path of the Spiritual Sun – New Free eBook Released

The Path of the Spiritual Sun_3DThe Path of the Spiritual Sun has just been released as a free eBook.

I remember the moment we first decided to begin writing it. It was 2 weeks until the summer solstice; standing together on the verandah, looking out across the beautiful wildflowers in the summer breeze Mark suddenly struck by an idea, turned to me and said, “we should do something for the summer solstice.”

Over 2 years later, this book has become perhaps the first and only compilation of its kind. What started as an idea, turned into a remarkable journey of discovery which has transported us to destinations we never knew existed. Through over a year of solid research, we uncovered the traces of a universal and cosmic spirituality of epic proportions, pulling together sacred sites, texts, symbols, myths and legends from around the world, and finding to our amazement the code that links and unlocks them all.

Whilst I was poring through ancient texts and sites, Mark was analyzing the information from his own experience and knowledge of the process of enlightenment. As the fragments started piecing together, what emerged was a spirituality found in the movements of the sun and stars, imbued in the fabric of life, which outlined the process and journey to enlightenment that has been described by ancient sacred texts and teachings through the world.

Day after day, driven like a treasure hunter hot on the trail of a cache of lost spiritual riches, we looked for the clues to the mystery of the spirituality of the world embedded in the distant past. The journey led us even to the lost meaning and origin of the Great Sphinx of Egypt.

Here is a description of the book:

The ancient veneration of the sun is one of the greatest celebrations in history. It has been encoded in sacred texts and sites by peoples separated by vast distances for thousands of years across the world.

Although often looked at as simple-minded sun-worshipers, there is another reason why the ancients aligned some of their most inexplicable and advanced sites to the sun and stars, and encoded the movements of the heavens in their sacred teachings.

The sun, source of all light and life, is central to a cosmic spirituality that is both ancient and timeless—and as ever-present as always. Its principles have formed the basis of many of the world’s religions—unbeknownst even to many of their adherents—and are just as relevant to people searching for spirituality today.

The Path of the Spiritual Sun uncovers the profound spiritual significance of the veneration of the sun, pulling together the sites, texts, traditions, and symbols from around the world that were based on the solar cycle to reveal the common thread of spirituality running like a current of eternal knowledge through all of them and imbued in the very fabric of creation itself.


There are so many people to thank for this book. THANK YOU to the fantastic team at Mystical Life Publications for editing, formatting, and encasing this book in a beautiful cover, and for all the administrative support. And thank you to all of you out there who have supported us over the last 3 years, for your financial support, your friendship, and encouragement.

To us, this book is like a treasure chest of wisdom, with so many jewels from the sacred texts and sites of peoples all over the world and throughout time, all strung together, to tell the remarkable story of why we are here and about our vast potential.

    This is such an amazing book (and I look forward very much to the hard copy coming out very soon) – like everyone has said, the information contained has for me revived and opened my eyes to the connection of the sun, the cosmos, the earth, nature, the divine to ourselves. I remember hearing Mark talk about how everything around us has been created for our awakening, but to actually see this relation take place in those cosmic events of the Solstices and Equinoxes throughout the year, and their relation to the spiritual path has been a whole other game.

    What I am so thankful for is the knowledge that Mark has been passing on about the esoteric meaning of these events – now so much of the ancient sites start to make sense, their purpose and how interconnected they are all around the world. I don’t think there are that many people who are not affected by the sight of the Moais, the Sphinx of Egypt, the Great pyramids, Stonehenge, and so forth – their symbology speaks to us but we lost the understanding or the ability to understand what they say to us, but thanks to Mark’s knowledge it is now coming back for all to grasp once again.

    We are living an incredible time – this knowledge could have almost never resurfaced and I am incredibly thankful that the light is piercing again through the darkness with this book. Thank you Belsebuub, Thank Angela for all your incredible work and thank you to everyone else who makes this possible 🙂

    Thank you so much for such well written, profound and free articles.
    The clarity and simplicity of style, makes it so easy to drink, reflect and meditate upon.
    They are superb for contemplating cosmic solstice principles, the hemispheres and seasons, activation of essence and feeding consciousness.
    Much appreciated, particularly during this cold dark winter solstice down South!

    Hi Angela/Mark, I have a question about the topics discussed in the book.

    From what I understand, the spiritual “son” ie, Jesus, Horus, etc, is not exactly what we are as a normal human being, ie, the consciousness that we have manifesting in the here and now is not this son, but something more incipient? Have I understood this correctly? If that is true, then “what” are we in terms of the ancient traditions? (If we are not “Horus” in the ancient Egyptian stories, in there any reference to the person trying to achieve that level?)

    I hope that makes sense. I understand we are the children of our divine parents, spiritually speaking, but it also seems we are something different to the Horus/Jesus/Quetzalcoatl, although if we progress far along enough we can incarnate that part of ourselves.

    Thanks for the book it is an excellent resource.

    It’s fantastic to have access to another e-book. Being involved in a ceremony to celebrate these events is just amazing. Our very first ceremony on a rocky outcrop by the sea attracted (I’m sure not by coincidence) a huge pod of whales travelling down the coast – arriving at the very spot we were celebrating just as the sun began to rise. More recently, the night before our dawn ceremony, the night sky formed the most esoteric of symbols which remained for quite some time. These are truly magical ceremonies and one does feel connected to spiritual times and events of the ancient past.

    It was really inspiring when each of these articles and ceremonies came out. Having these amazing groundbreaking works all together in one book with such a fantastic cover, I feel like this book could really gain some momentum and have a solid impact on the world.

    I have personally learned, gained, and experienced so much thanks to your work uncovering the significance of the solstices and equinoxes and how to celebrate them. Your work in this has helped me to understand deeper and experience the personal journey of enlightenment, the timelessness of the process and principles of the journey, and how these principles are imbued in life and creation itself.

    Thank you very much for your hard work Mark and Angela! You’re work to uncover all this is such a gift to the world!

    Thank you so much for bringing out this book, Angela and Mark.

    Having this information about the Solstices and Equinoxes, and how to appreciate and celebrate them properly, is very special to me. Your journey to discover all of this information sounds so inspiring, too!

    I have a very strong impression of being younger, and studying about the ruins of ancient civilizations, and hearing about their creation stories and myths, and just being left with this sense of wonder. Looking at structures like Stonehenge or the pyramids in Egypt, and imagining the people who must have built them, it seemed so strange to oftentimes hear their stories or spiritual beliefs trivialized, like you mentioned as simple sun worshiping. I always wondered what more they knew, if they were able to manifest such complex structures that lasted for thousands of years.

    Now, after using the information that you’ve uncovered and experiencing these ceremonies first hand, it’s given me very personal answers to some of the things I used to wonder about. And I’ve certainly gotten a much deeper appreciation and feeling of awe for the intricate structure and organization of the universe, and how all of this points towards the task of awakening.

    So thank you both for bringing all this forward; what a beautiful gift to be able to gain our own experience and first hand knowledge of these things!

    Wow! Another wonderful book! Thank you so much for your efforts. I really feel blessed and your hard work and efforts to get this information out in such a wonderful fashion are inspiring.

    I’m looking forward to the coming equinox and its celebration. Thank you again.

    Such a fabulous book, I’m glued to it already

    Its amazing how much is packed into this book, the amount and quality of research and insight that is being shared (even in the little bit I’ve read so far) is really phenomenal and unique. What makes this book so much more than just a great read is the esoteric work along with the experience of the celebration of the solstices and equinoxes.

    I feel this book contains an incredible wealth of esoteric knowledge…. its like holding a unique precious jewel in my hands and not really knowing how precious it really is, but somehow having that feeling that its beyond anything of this time,

    Awesome book cover too!

    I too have gained a lot since being taught about the deeper connection between the seasons and spirituality and how this has played out throughout history.
    I am very grateful to be part of this community and to have access to such incredible knowledge and wisdom.

    The front cover is really spectacular – Congratulations to everyone involved, each new edition of these free e-books is truly beautiful and inspiring!

    It is great to see this new ebook released. I am looking forward to digging into it. I have also appreciated the articles on the meaning of the Solstices and Equinoxes. The ceremonies and practical ways to prepare and to use the different times of each year accordingly have been very helpful. It has helped me, personally, to navigate through my spiritual pursuits and to understand how to use different periods of the year well.

    It is truly amazing what you have done, and it is hard to imagine the scope of it. To think that this information and the teachings behind it have been hidden for so long and are available to us in this way now, through your efforts and experience, is really incredible.

    Thanks very much Belsebuub and Angela, and those involved with this publication. I hope the value of this book will be recognized and that many people will be able to benefit from it.

    “It is funny to hear you share those earlier moments of when the discussion to do something for the Summer Solstice first took place, and how your own journey began to uncover the secrets of the Solstices & Equinoxes, ancient sites & sacred texts over the ages – while at the same time – after learning about the celebrations on this website – my life will never be the same. I have had such incredible experiences with every Solstice and Equinox, and my perspective on spirituality has done a 360 turn for the better. ”

    Same for me, Olga.

    Thanks very much for putting this book together, Mark & Angela. It’s such a wonderful resource and a beautiful reminder of the spiritual in all things throughout time.

    It’s fantastic to see this book released! I’ve really enjoyed participating in many solstice and equinox events since the articles first started appearing and the knowledge in this book has certainly helped string together many aspects of spirituality across so many cultures and time itself.

    It was also interesting hearing that little story about the book’s beginning – thanks for sharing that.

    Once again, the cover-art takes my breath away and leaves me with an awe-struck anticipation of its contents.

    It’s an been amazing journey of discovery over the last couple years since I began to participate and re-create the ancient ceremonies celebrating the sun. Most incredible of all is that not only does the premise make so much sense, as the sun is such a universally venerated symbol, but that there’s an inner experience that can take place with the celebration of the sun on its passage. Particularly with our last ceremony (summer solstice), which Michelle and I celebrated in a park somewhere in Michigan, I learned some really valuable information about myself in our arduous and difficult hike to the spot where we finally watched the sunrise. Then during the actual sunrise, understanding and information seemed to ‘flow’ in as the sun was rising, giving understanding of fire and its meaning, why we light fires to celebrate the divine (sun), and other intuitive information that I don’t remember anymore, but that I remember the experience of.

    Thank you for publishing this, I look forward to reading through it.

    This is wonderful to see this book available.

    Some friends and I experienced the summer solstice together a few years ago when this all started to unfold. It had a big impact on how I viewed the spiritual and its interconnectedness.

    Your adventure of collecting the information sounds really incredible – way better than an Indiana Jones film. 🙂 The information you’ve discovered is so so valuable and I’m personally very thankful to have access to it and be able to celebrate the solstices/equinoxes in a much more meaningful way.

    Thank you Belsebuub and Angela for this very inspiring book!

    Hooray! Thank you to all who have worked on this and especially to Belsebuub and Anglea. These documents have brought to life in me a much deeper understanding of how our individual spiritual journey is connected to civilizations of the past and the structure of the universe itself.

    I am so grateful to have had the chance to enact the ceremonies contained in this book. Thank you again.

    I’m really looking forward to this book. I was just thinking the other day how my friends and I should start planning soon for an autumn equinox ceremony, so this book is just in time.

    Unfortunately, I’m having trouble downloading this particular e-book on my smartphone. Every time I click on the epub download link, I get a message saying the download was unsuccessful. The other e-books seemed to work fine. Does anyone else have this particular problem?

    • Jenny R September 2, 2013 at 11:54 pm - Reply

      Hi Mike,

      It downloaded fine for me. I use kindle for iphone for the .mobi version, and ibooks for the epubs. Both versions downloaded and opened on my phone. What software do you use?

      Maybe it was just a glitch? Like the internet connection could have cut out or something. Also, this is a larger book than the previous ones, so maybe double check you have space on your phone for it? That’s all I can think of for now, but I hope it works out.

        I too am having difficulty. I am downloading it onto my laptop and when I go to add the file I get the following message:

          Like the other posts above, I have been encountering this problem too and have tried numerous times to open and/or save it on my laptop. This is unusual as I have been able to easily download the other ebooks via ePub prior to this. I am looking forward to reading it so hopefully it will be resolved soon. Thanks to everyone who brought this book forth to us, especially Belsebuub and Angela.

          • Jonathan September 4, 2013 at 10:56 pm

            It’s a much larger book so that might be the problem with the download. Try this as the direct link:

            Problem solved! I managed to finally download the ebook in my laptop (pc) after I had deleted the previous downloads and used the Firefox plug-in version instead of the Adobe Digital Editions – I found it gave me problems with the downloads. As for the mobile, I used the Bluefire option fir muni phone and it worked instantly. I’d like to personally thank the technical support team for your helpful tips!

      Thanks for the tips, everyone. Unfortunately, it still does not work on my phone (I freed up a bunch of memory, too). The error message is: “Cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone.” The other books worked fine, though.

      At least I can read it on Mozilla with the epub reader. I’ll use the Contact Us to report this issue.

    Thank you so much Angela and Mark! A really beautiful look and inspiring collection of resources and wisdom.

    It is funny to hear you share those earlier moments of when the discussion to do something for the Summer Solstice first took place, and how your own journey began to uncover the secrets of the Solstices & Equinoxes, ancient sites & sacred texts over the ages – while at the same time – after learning about the celebrations on this website – my life will never be the same. I have had such incredible experiences with every Solstice and Equinox, and my perspective on spirituality has done a 360 turn for the better.

    Everything about exeriencing spirituality in this new way has brought me closer to my personal love of the spiritual work and the yearning to live with divinity, not just on these calendar events, but the journey they represent to attain to everyday. I cannot thank you both enough!

    I keep looking at my calendar to see how long before the Autum Equinox & can’t wait to celebrate its deeper symbolism and the relation is has with my own life.
