YOU ARE LIGHT, YOU ARE JOY
Darkness may reign in a cave for thousands of years, but bring in the light, and the darkness vanishes as though it had never been. Similarly, no matter what your defects, they are yours no longer when you bring in the light of goodness. So great is the light of the soul that incarnations of evil cannot destroy it. But the self-created temporary darkness of evil makes the soul miserable because you suffer in that darkness. You can drive it away by opening your spiritual eye in deep meditation, filling your consciousness with its all-revealing divine light.
No one else can save you. You are your own savior as soon as you realize:
“I am Light Itself. Darkness was never meant for me; it can never cover the light of my soul.”
Generally , I restrict myself to words of Yogananda or Yukteshwar or Lahiri Mahasaya
Why? The words of those not fully enlightened can have slight errors.
Light – of Atman While soul is the spark Otherwise the above is very accurate
Spiritual eye – generally thought of as Agna Chakra
Opening it is not that easy.
The light once there does not stay there. It takes time to have it steady. A flickering lamp is a start. Then a bulb, then a sun, then millions of sun together and then…..
You get the point. There are many many many steps. All of which are not written in text books.
Baby steps are revealed.
