Why do we burn candles, light fires, and use the imagery of light in sacred events, to speak of the aura, celestial beings, or is frequently recalled in near-death experiences? Why do visionary experiences speak of an influx of inner light? Light is infinitesimal, vast, and beyond comprehension. We seek to grasp and understand, some truths, some mysteries to our existence and we can know deep within that we are and we became and were begotten by One Light, that of which is Whole and “Is” always. The field of Light from which we came is a constant and will continue to be a constant and forever, because it is everlasting. We live in a world of separation, but in reality we never separated ourselves from the Infinite and the Unified Field of God Awareness. Many forms seem to exist, but all that is came from One Source. An illimitable Source. Light comes into the world through us. We will forever be light and lit by the experience of Love. Nothing can change that. We exist in the first Primordial state of Oneness. In the midst of that original state, our True Nature is found. We are not separated from Light, though we may seem to be caught in darkness at times in our life. Light is the One uniting commonality of all things. Light is our Essence and what we celebrate during festive holiday seasons, celebrating inner light. Light has come through individuals and will always come through individuals. The One Source, the Unified Field of Awareness emanated us and light seems to come into this world through gradations of the one Light Continuum. Light is power. We have within us, the inner “guru” which means the “light that dispels darkness”. This source within transforms us. Light in this world seems to be fractured, but light is All-encompassing and over-powering. It is fascinating to explore and brings a comfort in times of sorrow. Light enables us to celebrate and dig deep within ourselves. Consciousness and Light are both ever-expansive. We seek Light-bearers and many have come into the world as avatars. The Allness of Light Presence is expressed as the True Self, called by many names, The Atman, The Self, The Christ, The Buddha Nature, Krishna Consciousness. No matter who we are, where we are, what we’ve done, we will always be an illumined source of light. Light is used to represent Spirit during holiday seasons. Light is eternal. And Oneness and Light are synonymous and interchangeable. There is nowhere that Light is not.

I am not alienated in experiencing the effects of my perceptual faculties because all minds are joined and unified, only appearing to be separate, seeing through what seem to be individual eyes of different physical bodies and their individual visual cortexes.
Am I seeing with the personal egoic-ahamkar and its body sense of sight, of which there really is only one mass, collective ego, or from Christ-Atman-Buddha-Krishna Mind-Vision? In all cases it is always one or the other from which I see or seem to perceive.
There is one holographic mind, of which all the apparent separate parts are contained within the whole. Therefore, in the appearance or experience of one mind is the one experience of a joined mind. Again, there is the ego-ahamkar mind fragment or the God Mind of which I am One with. My Real Will is to see through God Mind. But in the forgetting process of separation that began long ago, and continues in space and time today, it appears that I have an individual will fighting to assert itself and to interpret everything my physical body’s eyes see.
These ideas for today further emphasize that the vibrational thought-wave-frequencies that are the cause (not the effect) of what I see or seem to perceive are not in any case without positionality or insignificant in any way. My personal ego-mind-matrix is not the Real mind with which I am One in all ways. Today, I will ponder not so much what I see, but rather how I see it.
To practice the idea, I will look around and select random subjects gazing on them long enough to utter the words: “I am not alone in solitude in experiencing the effects of the way I perceive ______.” Then I will finish the practice of today’s idea by saying aloud: “I am not alienated in experiencing the effects of my perceptual ego-body-mind faculties.” I will do it for a minute, maybe slightly less.
The experience of being alienated or feeling in solitary confinement only seems to apply to my identification with a separate set apart individual self. Alienation or aloneness doesn’t mean anything, because as mentioned in reality my Mind is One. In fact there is never another mind. Only in the way I see through a separate, seemingly split-off fragment or an illusory mind, there appears to be a “me” surrounded by an outside world. The limited solitary mind is just a fantasy in this dream of being separate from Divinity. In Reality my mind is limitless and my seeming experience of a separate self in a world outside me is an hallucination. It isn’t happening. Not now in the Holy Instant. Not ever. It never happened. Aum. Peace. Shanti. Amen.
