Light; Life and Happiness
Light is a vibration of a field of energy, it is not static, but vibrant and all pervasive, making us aware of the manifest world as well as its shadows. There is no light that is not spirit and we are all condensed light. In its subtle form it is a manifestation and coming into being of all that was previously hidden in apparent darkness; by darkness we mean, the non-moving reality of all that has been or will eventually come to be. It is love which is the heart of the Cosmos and which holds the truth of all living creatures, whether past, present or yet to be born.
Love is an all embracing sentience, an eternal mother principle that and gives birth to all in due time and to quote Eugene Halliday...Life is a function of love, an activity in which the potentialities of being are actualised, sustained, developed and transcended to infinity, life itself is Divine Love at work.
Laughter, an expressive form of energy release, is either the laughter of acquired power or the laughter of hysteria. The laughter of hysteria can arise from an apprehension of the absurd and the sense of relief that arises from being on the outside looking in, at a charade or staged humour containing the echoes of many of our own life situations. The laughter of acquired power comes from a perception of the real, and the joy that arises from the recognition of the eternal underlying the illusory and changing patterns on the ocean of life.
The infinite is doubtless, and Joy arises from within oneself with the affirmation and realisation of the eternal and unwavering truth, or real within the life of the universe. The pose of complete relaxation or Corpse Posture can lead to this realisation, because no matter how deeply we relax or let go of body awareness we do not disappear. The surface waves of tension or irritation like the ripples on a lake may subside but there remains in oneself an all comprehending stillness and a looking forward to new possibilities of being.
Truth lies within and is not clamorous and is part of the silent hidden strength of the Yogi, the Healer and enlightened. It is a level of awareness that arises in the heart and is not intellectually proud. Life itself is a manifestation of the truth at the heart of life unless distorted by private purpose and ambition. Not all, however is as it seems. As life can be short and those who suffer most, angelic forms, resolving the hurt and transforming the karma of past lives. Only to emerge from their chrysalises of pain as true Son’s of light.
When passing on the light of the candle flame from one candle to another, the light of the previous candle is not diminished. The same is with universal love as it is infinite and never diminished. The practise of meditative healing is not unlike passing on the light of the candle flame from one candle to another, the healer expresses what is felt from within the light of the heart and passes it on; without any sense of loss or obligation, just a simple statement arising from the light within.
Happiness is the feeling of inner harmony that arises when our inner worlds and outer worlds are in correspondence and to quote a few lines from the Bhagavad Gita Ch6v18.19 When the mind of the yogi is in harmony and finds rest in the spirit within, all restless desires gone, then he is a Yukta, one in God. Then his soul is a lamp whose light is steady, for it burns in a shelter where no winds come.
