Spiritual entity of fire

Every human has a flame in the centre of his 'being'. This is a pure node of 'being' in the body. This is the core representation of our divinity.

Some five thousand years ago, the rishis of yore were singing the glories of fire. They referred to fire as the divine representation of God's original light. The Rig Veda propounds, "O Fire, that splendour of thine which is in heaven and which is in the earth and its growths and its waters, it is a brilliant ocean of light, in which is divine vision…".

It goes on to say, "O Fire, thou art the navel knot of the earth and its inhabitants."

Every human has a flame in the centre of his being. This is a pure node of 'being' in the machine of the physical body. This is the core representation of our divinity. The same fire exists in every being, in every molecule and every atom of this universe. Every movement of the stars and the world is propelled by this extraordinary power, which also joins up to form the matrix controlling and unifying all things into the oneness.

The fire that the rishis discovered, five thousand years before scientists could lay their hands on elements, was called or the solar fire.

For the rishis knew that the composition of this ethereal fire was akin to the light that the creator shows us through our own sun. Before this, the scientists could claim to know two kinds of fire, one produced through the chemical reactions, in which molecules are destroyed and recomposed without any change in the constitutive atoms; and the other one which accompanied the rearrangement of electrons in the atom. This 'third fire', at the core of every bit of matter, was referred to by the rishis as the "sun in darkness".
