Any fellow sun addicts here?! This is something I've been doing for quite some time, but recently hearing more about this being one of the key methods to activating and/or decalcifying the pineal gland. Being told all your life not to stare into the sun, when in actuality, gazing into the sun (responsibly) has many empowering benefits.. People and their weird obsession with sunglasses to block out solar sunshine; shadowing the mind... It's weird, as many pairs of sunglasses I own, I never feel the desire to wear them.. I also cannot stand talking to people wearing sunglasses. The Sun worship preceeding Christianity doesn't seem so strange afterall..

I don't wear sunglasses much, also have really good vision in the dark, but I don't live where there is a lot of light pollution, so my eyes are accustom to the dark.
Something about that is why pirates wear an eye patch. Keep one eye in the dark for good night vision.

I enjoy the sun in a safe manner. Never heard about it decalcifying the pineal glad. A major influence on that is fluoride. I'm pretty sure most municipal water supplies have flouride added, so don't drink the tap water. And even though we don't eat it, I won buy toothpaste with flouride added. Flouride is a 'poison'. Yes, it's to 'help' prevent tooth decay, but not by consuming it! Flouride has to sit on the teeth for an extended period of time. Just drinking water with flouride does not serve any purpose.

Sorry - got a bit off track. But it ties in.
We are not to look at the sun and we are being given poison...is someone trying to keep us in the dark!?....I would not be surprised one bit.

Has been linked to cataracts, however.

More than just cataracts: The Sun, UV Radiation and Your Eye Health - Eye M.D.-approved information from EyeSmart. For most people this is not the smartest thing to do. The idea of doing retinal damage or developing cancer in your eye is enough to keep most of us away from staring at our Sun. Even if Sun worship preceeding Christianity, don't forget; they did not live that long back then!

All valid points concerning eye health. I would never suggest for anyone to just stare at directly into the sun at high noon or anything, lol. However, allowing the sun to enter your gaze, say, nearer sunrise or sunset when the rays themselves are not intensely damaging.. (should've specified that in my 1st post, sorry)

Yes, I bolded them, also...it's a big part to Sun Gazing.
Good topic to make people aware of.

Back then people had very short life expectancies, so taking needless risks and engaging in dangerous activities by our standards was not really a big deal. Also just because we have a vague notion about an ancient practice, doesn't mean that it was quaint and holistic. People in the ancient world who became "disabled" probably became expendable and met an unseemly demise in one way or another. Now if someone decides to wilfully destroy their own health, the rest if society has to foot the bill for the rest of their lives.

I have to agree... because I was told too much sunlight was the cause of my cataracts at age 42.

My family moved to Arizona when I was 14. I hate wearing sunglasses, and my eyes paid the price. Fortunately, I had the cataracts removed a couple of years ago and I can see clearly again.

People, please don't get it twisted & miss the point. There is a specific reason I created this thread here instead of the Health forums. * I see some people are getting it, and I thank you for your added contributions + streams of thought!

The sun grows our crops and it also makes our bodies create vitamin D. It takes about 20 minutes of sunlight a day -- that's not much at all. I never wear sunscreen on my arms, and I had to give it up on my face since menopause hot flashes -- the sweat runs and the sunscreen stings my eyes. (Bad Gal waterproof mascara is my Holy Grail mascara -- I can sweat, it stays, I splash my face with water, it stays. It stays till I take it off with Neutrogena makeup remover. It stays on, no flaking, no running on the massage table. This stuff is SO worth it's spendy price.)

But with my blue eyes and sensitivity to sunlight -- I'll wear my sunglasses.
