I believe that the Universe desires a state of balance. On a
microscopic level each atom strives to be stable creating the infinite chemical
reactions that shape our world.
Eastern traditions refer to the opposing energies in the
Universe, that together create harmony, as Yin and Yang.
Butterflies are creatures of the light, they can only really
thrive in the glorious sunlight; on a sunny day they take to the skies to
search for delicious nectar. The sun is Yang, their food is nectar, full of
natural sugar and therefore Yin. The balance is beautiful.
Similarly I have noticed with myself that when I became a
fruit-eater I craved the sunshine in a way I had never done before. I could
truly appreciate its wonderful healing rays. I feel that when on a fruit diet
the sun becomes more appreciated and valued. There is almost a need for it that
perfectly balances the beautiful fruit that is eaten.
On a cooked diet the sun was never so appealing to me.
Also I have found that when on a fruit diet the skin never
burns but tans quickly. The good nutrients in the fruit help nourish the skin
and give a better natural protection than any sunscreen. I have also found that
my eyes are stronger in the sunlight.
We need sunlight on the retina to make the Pineal gland
function and help to create optimum Serotonin levels , Serotonin is the 'feel
If we never expose our eyes to sunlight we may find that we
do not produce enough Serotonin for our needs. There is no need to stare at the
sun, indirect light is sufficient to promote happiness. If sunglasses are
always worn we may miss out on some vital healing rays.
Now let us look at the vampires of the world; the blood-sucking
vampire bats and the mosquitoes, they are often nocturnal, the mosquito
disappears when the sun comes out as does Count Dracula.
The dark is yin and blood is extremely yang so
again the two forces are balancing each other out. Maybe if Dracula swapped his
blood sucking for mango sucking he would feel a need to sunbathe and loose his
One exception is the good old flying fox or the fruitbat.
She loves her fruit but she is nocturnal., coming out at dusk to search for
delicious fruit. Maybe she is more successful foraging for fruit when all the
other fruit eaters are sound asleep and nature gives her this advantage to help
survival of her species.
There are also other
nocturnal fruit eaters among the mammals , however I believe that humans need
both the sun and the fruit and in combination the two give us great and
I definitely feel I have a greater relationship with the sun
since I started to eat fruit.
So enjoy your beautiful fruit lovingly grown, ripened and
warmed in the wonderful sunlight.
