From the Gospel of John 8:12 :
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Long before Christ was incarnated, the prophet Isaiah declared: « The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. » (Isaiah 9:2). As divine beings, we are all born from the light. The Lord reminds us, « You are the light of the world » (Matthew 5:14). But why do we now walk in darkness? What happened? How can a being of light fall so far as to sink into an abyss? Has our light been extinguished? Is it possible for a being of light to become a being of darkness once again?
No. Our light is still there. It is eternal. However, we have lost consciousness of what we are. That’s why we need the light from Heaven to see clearly in the situation; evaluate our position; recognize our mistakes! « Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” (John 12:36)… Here, above all, it is a matter of understanding the importance of celestial light in our existence. Life is a process, it is an endless journey. But how can I know where I am going if I am in darkness? And since coming down here, I have forgotten the essence of my true nature, how can I reignite this flame within me to revive my own light?
The light within you is always on, but you have hidden it under a bushel. You have merged into the intricacies of the density of the physical world, and that is why your light is invaded by darkness. You have preferred « doing » over « being, » and that is why your mind cannot find the rest and tranquility required to connect with your light. So, the time has come to learn how to connect with universal light. This light that maintains unity in everything in the universe, this light that is our Mother to all! Did not Christ promise us this light? Yes, it is the Holy Spirit who comes and remains eternally with each one of us. He guides us on paths of light (John 14 and 15). But we must believe and be willing to open ourselves up to this light…
All suffering and human misery stem from the fact that we have lost this awareness of our close connection with the light. All individuals who have had a near-death experience have testified that this divine light is always there to welcome them. If we do not have clarity in our minds to discern, how could we understand what happens to us in life? It is about learning to feel the light. To do this, one must connect with oneself. Through repeated meditation sessions, one can connect with their deep being and discover the presence of the Spirit of Light within it. Each step in this direction is a step towards true life. For then, we learn to feel our deep essence, the vital energy that animates us! Only then can we discover and understand the depth of God’s unconditional love for each one of us.
