“Children” (or sometimes called “Children of the Sun”) is a song by Twarres, a folk/pop group from the Netherlands. This particular song is from their album Stream, and has just been added to the modern music of the sun area.
The song’s lyrics speak of the children of the sun longing for love and understanding, and evokes a feeling of journeys over oceans and across time in the search for the “warmth of the sun.”
“We’re coming from far
Over oceans of time
We’re coming from places we once left behind
We’re looking for love
In the heart of every man
We’re looking for reasons we’ll all understand”
Interestingly, practitioners of the ancient Religion of the Sun were often referred to as “children of the sun” or “children of light.”
The lost civilization of the sun (from whom these traditions and cultures descended) was also known for its global seafaring network and the expansive journeys across oceans and continents through which they took the Religion of the Sun around the world.
In The Path of the Spiritual Sun, Belsebuub and Lara Atwood share the following on this subject:
“Is it little wonder then, that often when pondering the meaning of life and the question of where we came from, we tend to raise our eyes to the stars or gaze at the sun, and likewise when calling for spiritual guidance or help. This intuitive sense of home has been with humankind throughout the ages. From a scientific perspective, the elements that created our bodies, and all that exists materially, came from the stars. From a spiritual perspective, our consciousness—the spark of divinity within us—also originated in the stars, in higher dimensions, from the greatest source of life and light in creation.
This is why so many ancient cultures, such as the Hindus, Sumerians, Egyptians, Gnostics, Inca, and Maya, all referred to themselves as the “Children of the Sun” or “Children of Light.” The Inca literally believed that they were the descendants of the sun, and celebrated their spiritual lineage at the winter solstice.
The sun worship of the past in the more advanced societies was really the worship of the spiritual sun, not the physical sun.”1
