The lessons Sun has to learn: To let others shine (to not hog the limelight). To become immune to flattery and similar manipulations by cultivating humility. To become a Source of Light instead of simply entertaining. To learn to express upsets without dumping intense negative energy upon others. Mastery in becoming patience, calm, willing to surrender, listen, and cooperate. The ability to let go of others.
