In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
– John 1:4
Light is the power of life made visible. The life you feel in your body is the Light of Christ. The initiation of Illumination reveals this light to your conscious awareness. And as you work with it under the supervision of your teacher, it will become brighter and brighter. It will enliven you and begin the process of physical regeneration, making you not only more alive but more attuned with the Life of God as it manifests through the Son/Sun of God, the Great Christ Being of this Solar System. Once you experience this, you will know the difference between light and understanding. One is real while the other is conceptual. We go for the real.
