The sun, the moon, the stars,
and all the lights that you can imagine in the entire external world
are but fragments
of that one great Light that is within you.
It is the light of knowledge, the light of discrimination,
the light of understanding, the light of life,
the light of sharing and love,
the light of Being that you are.
“Thou art that.”
The light within is like a ripple in the vast ocean of bliss—
that which we call Brahman, the Absolute, Infinity, the Highest.
You yourself are that ripple; you are a wave.
You should always have confidence
that the light of life really is within you.
Physics corroborates this philosophy;
it also says that life is like a particle, like a wave.
It repeats the ancient philosophy that tells us that
life is a wave
born from the ocean of bliss,
playing in it,
and subsiding again into it.
