For the rest of my life I want to reflect on what light is.
I saw light gleaming in the unseen.
I gazed at it continually,
until the time came when
I had wholly become that light.
God is Light. God is said to be absolute -- and in physics, so is light.
God lies beyond the manifest world of matter, shape, and form,
beyond both space and time --
so does light.
God cannot be known directly
nor can light.
You are the entire universe.
You are in all,
and all is in you.
Sun, moon, and stars
are revolving in you.
There is not one cell in our body that was not once part of a star.
Time and space are but...
colors which the eye makes,
but the soul is light.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is no way of telling people
that they are all walking around
shining like the sun.
