If we must worship a power greater than ourselves, does it not make sense to revere the Sun and stars?
The author rants about organized religion while discussing the proto-religious, animist orientation of our human ancestors, in which the entire world is experienced as alive and intentional.

He discusses various discoveries in astronomy, physics, and mathematics that underscore the interconnectedness and miraculousness of the natural world we take for granted. He calls for a re-orientation of our values, from a selfish and shallow consumerist materialism to a worldview in which everything from bacteria to water to fire to the Sun itself is seen as sacred, living, and loving, and to which gratitude and reverence are the sanest responses. Even if the reader does not accept as factual an animist worldview, it is hard to deny the benefits of living as if the world was suffused with love, mind, and meaning.
Alas, the title is misleading, which is why I had to finally give the book two instead of three stars.

The author only dances around the subject of the sentience of the Sun and never really provides any evidence in support of his conjecture that it is a living, thinking being. That said, whether the Sun knows it or not, it IS the source of all our light and life, and it wouldn't hurt if we said thanks once in a while. As is my wont, I would like to share a few exemplary quotes with the reader of this review: On the practice of gratitude to the Universe: Perhaps all the effort that primitive men and women put into saying "thank you" for the blessings of life was not a total waste of time.
This sort of "superstitious" behavior went on for thousands of years and just might have been sustained for so long because people noticed the difference that it made to their lives and to the world around them Gratitude is good, whatever lies at the receiving end. Of course, we should not let ritualized gratitude detract from the enjoyment of that for which we are being grateful, since that enjoyment is probably the best feedback we can give.
They organize and make associations with whatever other neurons they choose and nowhere is there any sign of central control. If we cannot even understand our own process of intelligence, how can we be expected to understand how trillions upon trillions of drifting hydrogen and helium atoms in a pre-stellar cloud managed to engineer their own amazing feat of star formation?
But they did it, as we and a bright Universe are able to witness. It is time to acknowledge other vehicles of intelligence that are beyond our comprehension, and not just the incomprehensible version that we personally experience and accept. Evolution story was going off big-time, with lawyers and conflict and lots of headlines. After reading the positions of both sides, I couldn't help thinking that each side of the argument seemed as blinkered and chained to their positions as the other. Intelligence from the bottom up is that other option--a system in which everything, from a molecule of water to a neuron in our brain to the Sun itself, is a pat of the bottom that is subtly steering a greater whole.
But can you accept as possible that otters and eagles, butterflies and cats, trees and dolphins all feel it too[? But my interest is declared, I am a human and naturally biased. If any blue whales are reading this, then please forgive my arrogance in taking such a position. Gregory Sams' Homepage Oct 28, Diane Kistner rated it really liked it. As a child in Sunday School a Georgia Southern Baptist church, no less , I learned the words "omniscient" and "omnipresent. Even as a young child, I understood this to mean that a part of God is inside everything in the creation, not just white Southern Baptists as many I encountered fiercely maintained.
Later, when I read that we are made in the image of God, I took that to mean that we each hol As a child in Sunday School a Georgia Southern Baptist church, no less , I learned the words "omniscient" and "omnipresent. Later, when I read that we are made in the image of God, I took that to mean that we each hold a spark of God's light; that God's light shines on all of us; that we are illuminated both literally and figuratively by that light.
As an adult studying world religions, trying to discover the essence--the truth--they held in common, I came to understand that "God" is consciousness--the omniscient, omnipresent consciousness that pervades the universe--more huge and more wise, more all-encompassing, than any part of the creation is able to know. But the parts are all part of the consciousness some call God and, so, are partially conscious partially God, if you will themselves. In short, I believe that everything in the universe is conscious to a degree.

In fact, they express my understanding and beliefs quite well. The pantheists, I believe, were much closer to and understood more about the majesty of creation than today's religious dogmatists who anthropomorphize God as some Big Daddy Up in the Sky who's going to beat up anybody and everybody who disagrees with them. Whatever your religious perspective, get this book and read it with a willingness to shift the frame of your thinking a little. Even if you don't subscribe to much of what the author presents, I think you will be surprised at the insights that will spring forth into your consciousness.
Aug 09, Titus L rated it it was amazing. Thought provoking book on life, the universe and everything Following a potted review of world religious traditions, this book goes on to portray the possibilities of pantheist universe and beyond. The idea of a community of conscious Star beings, and the macro mirroring the micro, from sub atomic and cellular up to pan-galactic, all as part of one great organism of life, is purposefully portrayed. Must agree however with other reviewers that despite my own delight in the leap of faith and new Thought provoking book on life, the universe and everything Must agree however with other reviewers that despite my own delight in the leap of faith and new horizons that this book presents, I regret the authors structured approach frequently collapses into cosmic conjecture as he restates his view that surely all can see Sun must be conscious sentient entity.

Sun may be sentient, but Sams arguments do not in and of themselves portray why this must be the case. Nevertheless I greatly enjoyed and do recommend this book, because I do believe in the possibility of Solar sentience and a community of consciousness beyond our own. Tony Robbins. Patrizia Collard.

Description In Sun of gOd, cultural pioneer and philosopher Gregory Sams takes a fresh look at our solar benefactor.
As Sams sees it cultures throughout the ancient world were right to recognize the Sun as a living, conscious being. The implications of a conscious provider in the sky are startling, though often obvious and in harmony with science, logic and common sense. Sun of gOd explores exciting new ground, adding a crucial piece to the jigsawpuzzle picture we have of the cosmos.
