…the moon is the desire. Ultimately when it also collapses back, first of all it works out, it evolves, and then again when it is reversed, you see, then it goes back to desire, desire disappears into the spectator and the whole thing becomes parabramha again.
So the identification with one or the other cannot be said, it’s everywhere. If It is everything how can you identify with any thing else. Moon is one of the symbols, Moon is one of the symbols. Why? Because according to Sahaja yoga* we reach the state where you touch the Sada Shiva in the symbolic form you see or if you can say that after getting realization if you can see the abstract form of God and then we say after reaching your brahma randra you crossover your limbic area and then you go to aardh bindu. Aardh Bindu is the moon. Moon is the spirit. Because, Shiva also wears the moon on his head. Sada Shiva also wears the moon on His head. So moon is the spectator. Isn’t it?
Sun is the working part. He works and it reflects on the moon. So you become the spectator yourself and start going into that. So every symbol is the same and now why we use the moon more than the sun, about the timings, because it is the moon which is more effective in creating desire within our self. Like the moon affects even the sea. Not the sun. Sun is a constant-stuck practically; except for it changes its axis some time. And the distances between sun has not much significance with the earth, except that if the earth loses its axis a little bit more or becomes a little bit flatter then may be that the speed of the earth may be reduced, so we can only control the speed.
But the moon is a subtler thing. Which acts on subtle, subtler ways because you have seen the moon acts on the tides, it acts on the temperaments, it is a much subtler thing. Desire is much more subtler than the action itself. It’s a deeper thing. So the action comes out of the desire. So it is better to affect the desire than to affect the action. And that is why, in India people accept moon as the indicator for dates and all that but in the west people are so much time bound and for them they would not like to have these variations because they are not prepared for any such variations……

…..Now supposing you are suffering from say left side problem, is sort of you’re possessed or something, then you can use the sun you see because the sun will give you balance. But if you have the right side problems, like ego and all that you should use the moon, put the left hand towards the moon. But always people do the other way round say these dramatic melodramatic people you see all of them will go to the lunar side, […] Moonlight. And those who are egoistical will go in the sun and burn themselves. So other way round it should be. Like that if you use, you can work it out. All right? You yourself can manage it. So these are different centers, which must be cleansed and meditated onto and or to be dissolved into their own. I mean if you dissolve them into their own element, then you get more strength you see into that particular body. It’s like that.
Question- Can you tell us a bit about sunset; are we not to look at the sunset?
Answer- Sunset is not very good, sunrise, sunset is not good. That’s the time the sun is taking away all the energies from this earth. . So it’s not such a good time to see. It depends on for example ego-oriented people if they see sun would be better off. Little bit of their ego might go down. But people who have got a left-side problem should see the sun rise, will be good. It’s only the other way round. ….
