The Dance of Light
“If we want to see anything in the outer world, in addition to keeping our eyes wide open, we need light – either sunlight or electric light or some other kind of light. But in the inner world, even with our eyes closed, we can see the self-illuminating light. Light is the life of the inner world. Light is the power that transforms darkness. Anything that transforms our existence is light. Light is the life breath.
The inner light actually comes from the soul; it is already inside us. The moment we can have free access to our soul, we will see that this light is coming to the fore to permeate our whole inner existence. We should always aim at illumination to transform our earthbound life into the heaven-free world. Only one thing we need: a conscious awareness of the divine light which is ours. It is our birthright to realise and fulfill this inner light.”
