“You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16).
“For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light” (Psalm 36:9).
“In him was life, and the life was the light of men . . . the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world” (John 1:4,9).
“If we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another” (I John 1:7).
Are you aware of awareness? Are you walking in the light? Do you lean into this moment? Do you know the living Christ?
Aware presence… Alert stillness… Crystal clear… The realization of this light is, in the words of T.S. Eliot, here, now, always–a moment of complete simplicity costing not less than everything…
“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).
