When you see from the consciousness of light

When you see from the consciousness of light, you project a flow of Light energy that becomes a healing influence.

~ Eric Butterworth

Finding every face luminous with godliness

. . A Baby's cry
shatters barriers
women, men
of every creed,
culture, race
gaze across
the rubbled walls
in wonder finding every face
luminous with godliness!

~ Irene Zimmerman

Do everything in your power to let your light shine

Light is knowledge; where there is no knowledge, there is darkness. Light is the presence of day, where things can be seen and appreciated. Light is the power of Love, the presence of life that is sustaining and nurturing. … Become the light of the world — the loving light. Do everything in your power to let your light shine.

~ From IN THE MEANTIME by Iyanla Vanzant

We receive in peace the Incomprehensible Light, enfolding us and penetrating us

When love has carried us above and beyond all things, into the Divine Dark, we receive in peace the Incomprehensible Light, enfolding us and penetrating us. What is this Light, if it be not a contemplation of the Infinite, and an intuition of Eternity? We behold that which we are, and we are that which we behold; because our thought, life and being are uplifted in simplicity and made one with the Divine Truth which is God.

~ From THE SPARKLING STONE by Jan Van Ruysbroeck

Soul gifts are the means through which we manifest our individual sparts of divine light

Soul gifts are the means through which we manifest our individual sparts of divine light. By practicing our gifts with wisdom, love, and compassion, we can contribute to a spiritual renaissance: one in which our creativity reflects the true light of divinity. This renaissance can remake the world.

~ Judith Cornell in THE SOUL OF CREATIVITY

So when the faculties are empty, the heart is full of light

Look at this window: it is nothing but a hole in the wall, but because of it the whole room is full of light. So when the faculties are empty, the heart is full of light. Being full of light it becomes an influence by which others are secretly transformed.

~ Chuang Tzu 4

Only the light of amber and pale gold that comes from the Hills of the Heart.

In the hollows of quiet places
we may meet,
the quiet places where is neither
moon nor sun,
but only the light of amber and
pale gold
that comes from the Hills of
the Heart.

~ Fiona MacLeod

The desire to love God

The desire to love God is the fulfillment of all desires.

~ Jerry Thomas

Inner light is not hidden

Inner light is
not hidden.
Myriad openings
lead to it.
In passing from
darkness to light
One moves freely
between eternity.

~ Frederick Lord

Allowing our small stories to be like icons, transmitting a Great Light

To acknowledge the Sacred within is humbling. One's ego portrays itself as the captain of its separate destiny, like an intrepid explorer, seeing things and naming them for the first time. Ego doesn't care for the idea that MY hunger for love, MY grief, and MY thankfulness are not only mine but also God's in me. As our egos die into Love, we see that our personal stories are transparent to an infinitely larger story within us. Suffering "in God" is allowing our small stories to be like icons, transmitting a Great Light.
