Daily Inspiration: July 2. The Light in You Can Never be Extinguished
As much as the ego would try to dim or shut it off, the light in you can never be extinguished. This light exists in everything God created, and God created All. A flower extends this light to you through its fragrance. The ocean shares this light with you when it massages your body with its waves. A tree expresses this light by extending its branches to shield you from the heat. The wind lets you feel this light by caressing and cooling your skin. The rain touches you with its light by baptizing you with the gift of life. The grass gifts you this light by softening the path that you walk on. Your brother and sister present to you this light by offering you the opportunity to love them. Your children offer you the extension of His light by allowing you the honor to hug them. Your enemy offers you this light by giving you the opportunity to forgive him. The beggar in the street brings you the opportunity to feel this light by giving you the chance to express compassion. The person in the other car offers this light by letting you show him patience and kindness. This light is not just “up there,” unreachable and separate from you, in fact it is the opposite of that misperception, this light is within you forever now, always One with you because you are this light. God is Love and Light which are both One, and you are Love’s creation, thus you yourself are this light. You are here on this planet, as a light, as a way shower, here to help others remember that they too, no matter how dark their lives may appear to be, also have this light within them. This light, no matter how unaware of it some may be, is their true home, where they belong and desire to be. This light is what we are all seeking, a symbolic representation of peace, joy, compassion, forgiveness, self-awareness, love, of God, and of who in truth we forever are.
The ego will work every day towards blocking your awareness to the light. It does this in order to try to make you feel separate from All, from everyone and everything. That way it can more easily convince you, that it’s you and the ego, against the world. The ego may con you for a while, but, this is an exhausting way of existing, and so sooner or later you will rebel against the ego, against the opposite of the light, against the darkness, and begin looking for a way back into a conscious alignment with the light, with your true self, and real home. Your real home is this loving light. Within everyone, everything and all, is the opportunity to recall this light in you, by seeing it in them. Your task is not so much to seek for this light, for the light is already within everything and all, your task is simply to seek for what is blocking your awareness to this light. What delusions has the ego “successfully” programmed you with, that are blocking you from seeing the light in your brothers and sisters, and because we are all One, in you? Are you choosing to value your brother’s so-called guilt over his innocence? Are you valuing condemnation over compassion, worry over trust, sadness over joy, and pain over peace? Where are you valuing the darkness more than the light? Remove these blocks and the light is all that you will once again see. Guilt, condemnation, worry, sadness, and emotional pain, are all symbols of one who is blocking his or her light. Being in the states of darkness, chaos, conflict and confusion, are all symbols that you are blocking your own light. Next time you feel engulf within this darkness, do not look outside of yourself for a solution, instead go within, and see where you are choosing to believe in the ego’s illusions more than in God’s creations. Do not despair, for if it is you, who are holding onto such misperceptions of self or others, and blocking your own light, then it is also you, who has the power to unblock them. Simply begin to unblock them by asking yourself: “What unforgiving thought am I holding unto, as more dear than, God’s compassion?”
Today, let us remember, that there is no place that His Light; your true eternal essence is not. Even in your perceived darkest hours, know that the Light is forever with and within you. You are not alone, have never been alone, and till the end of time, will never be alone. Every single person, place or thing, on this planet, is in truth this light, and so, when you decide to see them as they truly are, they can all help you find it within yourself. Today, practice becoming consciously aware within the present moment, and look for this light in everyone that you interact with, in every place you end up in, and with everything else that you see. When you are seeing and are in alignment with the light in every person, place and thing, then know that you are being truly present, and that you have awaken from the ego’s dream. The gift of light is available to you every single moment, simply by making the conscious choice to value the truth over and more than, the ego’s false concepts and programs. Your brothers and sisters are not what they think of, say or do; they are in truth this light. The animals, plants, and insects, are not decorations on this planet, they are this light, practice seeing and knowing them as the same light that you are, and you be getting a clearer picture of your whole-self. If a brother spews darkness your way, remember this so-called darkness is not them, it is the misperception they hold of you and you of them, and because we are all One, it is the misperception that they are holding onto about themselves. They are in essence blocking their own light, and for that reason they can not see yours. So simply overlook or forgive their misperceptions, and choose to see only the eternal light in them. By doing so, you will be reminding and aligning yourself with the light, and that light, as the mind awakens, will shine away your misperceptions, blocks and so-called darkness.
Today, let us practice becoming more consciously aware, of when we are being our light, or when we are blocking our light. Some of the symbols of when we are being our light are that we aligning with and sharing our loving nature, such things as being compassionate, forgiving, peaceful, joyful and understanding. Some of the symbols of when we are blocking our light are that we are judging ourselves or others, and feeling angry, resentful, anxious, off balanced and without direction. When you find yourself blocking your own light, do not despair, simply become aware of what it is that you are doing, recall that you are not the ego’s false concepts, that you are the light, forgive yourself and others, and return to consciously supporting, being and sharing the light. When others treat you in a manner that is not in alignment with the light in them, be compassionate and understanding, remember that they are simply seeing you in this manner, because they themselves have unconsciously blocked their own light, and thus can not see you as you truly are.
