I wish I could show you

 

I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.

This is beautiful in itself and needs no comment. And yet, I cannot help being curious. What is this light? How do I experience it for myself?

I find three facets: (a) There is an experience of light when attention is brought to awareness itself. A brilliant, clear light. (b) When I look at people and things, I see the light in and around everything (aura). And this light is there no matter how temporarily confused a person is. (c) It’s a metaphor for what we are and what can be noticed/lived. The two first are direct experiences, the third a poetic expression.
