Samhain 2000

THE SUN AT MIDNIGHT

          I wait eagerly to know what harvest our members have won during this extraordinary year 2000. The USA has been devastated by fires: a scientist watched with amazement a sheet of water at a melting polar ice cap: but those who were looking forward to some cataclysm have been disappointed. Have any of you noticed we only dwell on disasters when we have either money or personal problems? The world is our reflection.

          I shall have the courage to describe my own millennium climax hoping it may inspire others to share. On the longest day of the year, June 22nd, I went to bed very early in broad daylight and fell asleep. I was awakened much later in complete darkness. What woke me up with a start was a white flash like a photographer's flashlight only stronger - it was like a silver star. It seemed as if the South-East wall of my room had dissolved and I was aware of Presences. Then to my astonishment I saw a sun floating in the centre of my room! It shone with a brilliant gold colour, slightly flushed with orange, like the sun at dawn. It vanished and I fell into a heavy sleep with the thought: "I have seen the sun" in my mind, which recurred during my sleep: "I have seen the Sun." In the morning, meditating on this, I recollected the mysterious words of the Priest of Isis, Lucius Apuleius who, in describing his experience of the Holy Night of Isis wrote: "I saw the Sun at midnight."
