‘Miracles are seen in light, and light and strength are one.’
The idea for today is an extension of the previous one. You do not think of light in terms of strength, and darkness in terms of weakness. This is because your idea of what seeing means is tied up with the body and its eyes and brain. Thus you believe you can change what you see by putting little bits of glass before your eyes.
You also believe the body’s brain can think. If you but understood the nature of thought, you could but laugh at this insane idea. It is as if you thought you held the match that lights the sun and gives it all its warmth; or that you held the world within your hand, securely bound until you let it go. Yet this is no more foolish than to believe the body’s eyes can see; the brain can think.
It is God’s strength in you this is the light in which you see, as it is His Mind in which you think. His strength denies your weakness. Strength is the truth about you. Truth is a saviour and can only will for happiness and peace for everyone. Strength and light unite in you.
Let us give twenty minutes twice today to join this meeting. Let yourself be brought to your Self. Leave the dark a little while today, and we will practice seeing in the light, closing the body’s eyes and asking truth to show us how to find the meeting place of self and Self, where light and strength are one. Repeat as often as possible the idea for today.
I really enjoyed today’s lesson. The strength I felt from yesterday continued into today. The candle I lit for my practice took on a renewed significance as I gave consideration to the symbolism of bringing light into the meditative space. During the twenty minutes practice session (which went on for about forty minutes) I found the answer to a question I’d been asking myself all week. Finding the purpose of a person in my life has been challenging me for over a week now. I’ve been asking for guidance on how best to move forward with the situation. Within minutes of ending the practice period I received an email which answered all of my questions, and clearly illuminated the path I need to take in relation to this issue.
I went on to have a happy and productive day, despite the fact that most of it was left brain work. I trotted off to Ceroc tonight at the Tally Ho in Edgbaston and had another great night. I’m loving this partner thing, this letting the man take the lead. As I relax and trust God more, I can relax into someone else taking the lead.
