So…what does it mean exactly, to follow the Light? This is what I know so far.
In a literal sense, Light is the natural agent that stimulates sight & makes things visible. However there is a secondary meaning, one that has a spiritual application.
The concept of a spiritual Light is not a new one. If you are a follower of Christ, in the truest sense, you already have an idea about that which I speak. If you believe in God, you are halfway there. This Divine Light, is a trump card over any gods or goddesses and ALL perceived voids.
Where ever Light shines, we can see what otherwise roars in the darkness; hidden. This is particularly true of that which lies deep within our souls. Hidden bad attitudes, hurts and confusion, when brought to the Light can be reduced to better attitudes, healing and clarity. The beauty of this Light is… it IS a natural agent… so really no one is immune to its influence completely, because WE ARE the Light!
Sadly though. Too many folks have spiritual sunglasses on! Thus dimming the available Light to their spirits. You can think of it as being spiritually starved.
People have to be willing to carry a candle into the darkest places of their own hearts, in order to gain true illumination. Most are unwilling to walk through their own personal hells. They go for the flight or fight method, rather than looking honestly at who they are and what they are bringing to our collective table.
I know this is true, because I lived it. I spent far more effort trying to outrun my ‘demons’, than it took to actually stand and slay them. It is all too easy to deny our shortcomings, poor decisions or unexpected traumas and stuff them away from the light of day. Our cultures provides tons of distractions if you are not into self exploration. So the average human, will never change. Think leopards, spots and what-not. All of which is rooted in fear.
However, there is a group of humans who actually welcome illumination. (I have met a bunch of them here: http://www.illuminati.am) There are those of us who actively work on our ‘inner man’ in an effort to create a better version of ourselves. There are those that actually learn from their mistakes and seek improvement & personal growth, as a way of life. Basically, we own our own shit and clean up after our own messes. Kindergarten stuff, that makes a WORLD of difference over time…Not just for us, but for you!
Enlightened people sparkle & glow. They feel good to be around. But they can & will hold a candle up to your crap. It is natural. They can’t help it. They will expose the darkness in you without trying…often without even speaking. Light just does what Light does. It illuminates!
There is a growing, albeit ancient, movement to follow this Light into a paradigm shift. ALL are called to participate in the process, but very few choose to answer. To be “chosen” simply means, YOU have chosen to trust in & surrender to, the divine’s expansive & evolving master plan. Because there is absolutely no shame in admitting… life is decidedly less treacherous with an enlightened tour guide!
Michael Jackson said it better than anyone when he wrote: “If you want to make the world a better place, take a look in the mirror and make the change” !
I have personally chosen to follow this brilliant, creative & loving Light into eternity. Where-ever it shines, you will find part of me there~
