Buddha said the origin of light came from within. The implication is that there is an inner plane of forces that mirrors the elements of the physical world. That as matter is a conduit for fire, water, earth, and wind, our wakeful consciousness is a conduit for the forces of inner light, which manifest as intention, care, compassion, and kindness. And while survival has us navigate the struggles of circumstance, the transformative way to meet and mitigate events is to express the inner forces of light into the kinships that strengthen the Web of Life. In this way, light has migrated for eons through our suffering and delight into the world. This, then, is our one assignment: to make our humanness the lens through which light comes into the world.
Think of your life and the experiences that you are having as the entertainment that keeps you engaged while your light is present in this reality. What you always have to remember is that life is about keeping your light in form in this reality. That’s why it’s important to not put too much of an emphasis on what’s happening in your life, rather, just observe it and be with it.
