Sakro Sawel has released an expansive new video on the lost civilization of the sun. It tells the incredible — and virtually unknown — history of how the foundations of civilization in our post-glacial age were laid at the end of the last ice age by an advanced seafaring culture, who themselves inherited knowledge from even older civilizations like Atlantis and Hyperborea.
Many cultures around the world recall a “great flood” in their mythologies and oral histories, which likely refers to the catastrophic rise in sea levels and flooding marking the end of the last ice age, when ice caps melted. After this cataclysm, any scattered human survivors were plunged into chaos, living basic subsistence lives.
However, a number of cultures around the world recall how seafaring wisdom bringers made landfall, carrying with them knowledge of civilization, like farming and writing, and taught people how to live in civilization — a gift we are still inheritors of today.
Yet, as the video explains, their greatest gift was of a spiritual kind: the Religion of the Sun. They carried their spiritual wisdom wherever they went — establishing outposts worldwide and building incredible sacred sites that aligned to the sun, and even to each other, across continents.
In the video, Lara Atwood, co-author of The Path of the Spiritual Sun, outlines the rise and fall of this great global civilization — how it it was once the dominant cultural force in our world for thousands of years, yet eventually splintered and collapsed due to war, persecution, invasion, natural disasters, forced conversion and other causes. However the spiritual knowledge underpinning it survived at least in part in various other remnant cultures and societies which descended from it, some of which continue even to this day.
The video shows how our current civilization traces back to this lost time. The knowledge of civilization passed down over generations, that perhaps many take for granted today, was inherited from an advanced people who are now almost completely forgotten. But while civilization has survived, the spiritual wisdom that once underpinned and was central to it has been lost. Yet for any seeking to reconnect with their ancient roots, understanding our past provides a way to rediscover and renew the timeless spiritual knowledge our ancestors carried. This video provides a great starting point for a journey into a rich forgotten heritage, filled with spiritual treasures.
