We are all beautiful lanterns of light to each other, although we don’t always know when our lantern is shining a light for someone. Whether our light is dim or glowing we are all unknowingly teaching and helping each other become more consciously aware in a variety of ways.
Our goal is to become the brightest light we can be for it touches all of humanity. It is our light that illuminates the universe. The light is brilliantly luminescent because it is God’s light or Source which ever you prefer. Our Creator’s light lives inside our hearts as an access point and has been placed there purposefully for us to seek. When we connect to our heart space we can then be taught Divine healing, Love, wisdom, passion and our purpose which expands us into higher levels of consciousness. In fact, all we are doing is returning back to our Divine nature, our origin, not learning something new.
The quest for meaning, purpose, and the maturation and evolution of our soul to reconnect to Home, is the Spiritual journey; to know and awaken to Thyself, the Holy Self. The journey Home to God, accelerates and expands our capacity to hold and elevate light and love for ourselves and others by incrementally stripping away layers of the false self. Although this might sound easy it is not. It takes a lot of time and practice through meditation/prayer to develop an intimate reciprocal relationship with God in order to trust this purposeful Divinely guided expansion. In fact, this transformational process is underway daily as God calls us into deeper levels of relationship which lifts more and more of the veil of unconsciousness. This veil has purposely hidden our Divine identity by focusing us on faulty beliefs, earthly constructs, i.e., the illusion of life in order to aid in the awakening process. This, however, does not negate the light and wholeness that already exists within.
Our humanity is so complex, it creates barriers and resistance to searching deep within ourselves. It takes obedience, patience and commitment to make this inner search your goal. As humans, we are always looking for validation, safety, self-worth, acceptance, love and connectedness. Many of us have learned to look outside of ourselves for this fulfillment, and yet we still do not feel whole or understand our True nature.
As part of our human experience, the ego’s role is Spiritually purposeful in creating lessons of contrast so that we can awaken daily and evolve. These are opportunities to experience ourselves and keep choosing Love. Spiritual evolution is never easy. Ego consciousness keeps us focused on the outside world and other peoples light. We are attracted to the ethereal shinning light of others, just like a moth to a flame, because that is what is calling to you within. Your light is no different. You are seeing a mirror image, a reflection of yourself in your highest form, your Divinity, which is your True identity entwined with your humanity for this life experience. Due to being a part of a cosmic collective consciousness, we are all privileged to the same knowledge, wisdom, Love and light. Our soul recognizes this light in others as a kindred spirit, Home.
The more you search inside and understand and trust that you are already equipped with everything you will need for your time here, the more you will experience lasting peace, joy, contentment, creativity and love for your journey. The map for your journey lies within you and you alone. No one else has your map or knows your path. As others shine their light on you take the time to dive deep inside yourself to find your unique map/path. The deeper you dive into the abyss of self, the more treasure is found and the brighter your own light becomes as you endlessly unearth gifts in all different forms. God wants to help you find these treasures and celebrate them with you, for God’s Will is your eternal happiness.
As you learn how to sustain a deep relationship with your Creator, you will find that you lack nothing and are everything as Oneness. If you rely too heavily on everyone else’s light to guide you, you never have enough time or enough desire to search inside yourself to learn what your own light’s higher purpose truly is. Keep turning inward to the unconditional Love that awaits within you.
