One wonders where humans’ fascination with gold comes from. Perhaps they vaguely sense it originates from sunlight which is so vital to their life.

The truth is, there is a relationship between gold and light on every plane, for light is spiritual gold. Just as gold is the symbol of material wealth, so too is light the symbol of spiritual wealth.

The day humans understand what light truly is and learn to appreciate it, they will no longer exhaust themselves in the often disappointing and sometimes deadly pursuit of this very precious metal – gold. Some may feel drawn towards the sun’s light, but since they still have a long way to go before managing to free themselves from matter’s grip, they don’t think any further than the metal.
