The best we can do for others, to help make their lives brighter, begins with the work of enlightening ourselves. In this manner — from our first tentative steps toward a life in the Light, all the way to the summit of Higher Self-Understanding — we agree to the task of never again allowing ourselves to darken the world of another.
The love of the Living Light is its own reward, for whoever willingly embraces its Spirit holds in his or her heart the inexhaustible supply and Source of Life itself.
When we realize that the world around us is powerless to grant our wish for a sense of real permanency, our attention naturally turns toward that uncharted country within us where, as our eyes accustom themselves to the light therein, we catch a glimpse of our Eternal Home.
If we make it an uncontested habit of hanging around with dark thoughts and feelings, the day comes when the only kind of “light” that remains in our life is a darkness capable of the darkest deception of all: one that disguises itself as being the light because of how strongly it despises the darkness that it sees in itself.
Question: Can you give us some insight on the true meaning of the holiday season which we are now in the midst of? What lesson might we take from it that will aid our spiritual growth?
Answer: All forms of events are reflections of deeper, more invisible movements of certain forces that give rise to certain creations. So it is with the Christmas season. December 21st is the winter solstice, the darkest day and the beginning of the birth of light. Christmas was originally understood this way. Christ represents the birth of light that transforms the darkness.
