I am Light and Light is me” is conscious awareness of the absolute Truth Part 2

This is the truth: as from a fire aflame thousands of sparks come forth, even so from the Creator an infinity of beings have life and to Him return again. Radiant is His Light, yet invisible in the secret place of the heart…He is self-luminous and more subtle than the smallest; but in Him rest all the worlds and their beings…In the supreme golden chamber is Brahman indivisible and pure. He is the radiant Light of all lights, and this knows he who knows Brahman. There the sun shines not, nor the moon, nor the stars; lightnings shine not there and much less earthly fire. From His Light all these give light; and His Radiance illumines all creation. (Mundaka Upanishad)

To experience “I am Light and Light is me” is conscious awareness of the absolute Truth…This Light illumines light as well as darkness. Radiance is the basis of all. Out of Light, beings emerge; into the Light, beings dissolve. This entire universe is born of Light, exists in Light, and merges into Light. The supreme Light, the radiance of the Truth, is the source of the cosmos. In Light there is bliss. Wherever the experience of Light appears, along with it arises great joy. One delights in this illumination. Light is God and God is Light. This is the unchanging Truth. (Gurumayi)
