This Week's Quotation:
Radiance is the ever-expanding Essence of the Wonderful One made manifest in the body. Radiance is the Presence made visible in the world of physical things, that I AM THAT I AM may be known.
~ Lloyd Arthur Meeker, p.11, Seven Steps to the Temple of Light
Light is a significant theme in all sacred Scripture. The light refers to the spark of God that dwells inside us. In Seven Steps to the Temple of Light, this is described as Radiance, the ever-expanding Essence of the Creator made manifest in the human body. When we remember we are a vehicle for this Radiance, it fills us with the faith and strength to face whatever challenge is before us.
When we radiate our brilliant light, we bear witness to the truth of Love and God. Yet, we might hide our light at times and or even temporarily forget it’s there. This is the reason we have spiritual practices to support our remaining awake.
It’s good to remind ourselves often that when we allow the Radiance to shine through us, we encourage others to shine with us. Life is great fun when everyone is radiating!
None of us is separate. Everything shares the purpose of our Creator. God is in everything. I am Holy. You are Holy. Through our Holiness, our Light shines brilliantly and radiates the love of God, so it is made manifest and available to all. Let love radiate without concern for results.
About Open Windows
We, the authors of this blog, dedicate it to the transparent exploration of the world's sacred scripture and enlightened spiritual thought. We believe that the original inspiration of all faiths comes from a common source, named and revered in a myriad of ways. With that understanding, the innumerable symbols, beliefs, and practices of faith cease to divide. They become open windows to a common reality that inspires and unifies us. We find deeper insight and nourishment in our own faith and from the expression of faith from others.
We hope these weekly quotations and meditations speak to your heart and soul.
