As we move into the Light, we become the Light.
The false idea of our self covers our mind putting us into a deep sleep. Like a dense fog, this false image distorts all our thoughts, perceptions and ideas of what is true and what is real. When our source of truth is past learning, then we look to the world to tell us who we are and we believe it. It’s speaks numerous lies that we accept as our truth, that we are weak, frail, vulnerable, sinful, forgotten, abandoned, limited, unloved, unworthy, little, insignificant, finite, bound to the past, and the list goes on and on. Lost in this darkness, our minds construct a false image from which we project and perceive a reality reflecting similar traits. The voices of our illusions speak loudly, convincing us we are sick, bound to decay and death, victims of fear, and destined to suffer.
When we begin our sacred journey into Truth, all we once believed as truth becomes unraveled. As we sit in the power of stillness and go deep into the present moment, we hear the gentle Voice of the Spirit of Truth telling us we are nothing like the image of ourselves we imagined. As he breaks through our layers of darkness with revelations of Truth, he calls us out of the mist of meaninglessness and madness, and into the perfection and peace of our true Self.
As we listen to the Spirit of Truth, little by little we leave the lies of the illusion and advance toward the Light of our true Self. This Light is hidden in the darkness created by the fearful thoughts our false image creates. We continually run from our frightful false image and cover it with anything the world tells us is desirable and acceptable. The Spirit leads us right through these false coverings and our fears, giving us peace and strength to face our most challenging and seemingly unshakeable illusions. After persistence down this winding prodigal path forsaking all we once learned in exchange for the revelations of the Spirit, we begin to deeply comprehend the nature of our true Self. This awareness prepares us for the passage through the narrow gate, the borderland of universal forgiveness, through which all the illusions are stripped from our mind leaving the shining revelation of our true Self.
By giving divine gratitude we release the lingering distortions of our false self and joyfully accept the perfection of emergence, from which our true Self arises. All the voices of the illusion we once heard become distant echoes as our minds ascend to the reality of the Real. These voices which once told us who we were have no place or power in the Light of the True and Real.
As we approach the Altar of Truth, its Holy Light is like a sacred looking glass that reveals our true reflection for the first time. Lost in the darkness with no true mirror, we only saw ourself according to the reflection of our imagination. We believed ourselves to be all sorts of things and accepted those imaginings as true. Now, we marvel as we gaze into the face of Christ, which is the true face of every soul. In the Light we know we ARE the Light, and we become a looking glass for others to see their true Self. As each one looks upon their beautiful reflection, the Light of Truth expands into creation revealing what has always been but our sleeping minds could never perceive in the darkness: we are the glorious likeness of our Father.
As the Light of Life shines into creation, peace is restored to the souls which God created as His Self, His temple, His eternal joy, His ever-present love extended into eternity, and wholly one with Him. All fear is senseless and unreal in the divine presence of our true Self. From this moment of seeing our true reflection a new reality begins to emerge, one flowing from the divine thoughts of our true Self, who is the Self of God.
As the dreamer slept, the Christ came in one, because the one were many.
As the dreamer awakened, Christ came in many, because the many were one.
