It takes one of the Suns protons a 100,000 years to travel from the core to the outer edge of the sun where it’s released and 8 minutes later it reaches us in the form of sunlight. The journey takes so long because it keeps bumping into plasma particles along the way. This is so like the journey our collective consciousness is taking. We are working on finding higher ground, and it’ slow go. We keep bumping into dead ends like quest for money, fame, power. When we reach the surface we shall surely fly to our destination where ever that is enjoy the ride.
