Once you have received the initiation of Illumination and you have seen the Light of Christ in your body, you will begin to sense that the light you’re seeing comes from somewhere inside you. If you look for the source of the light, you will start to see it. And you will discover that it is, in fact, the real you, the way God created you when you were created in Its image and likeness. The initiation of Self-realization rends the veil of your inner temple so that you can see the source of the light directly. Once you know what you’re looking at, you then begin the process of learning how to ask it questions and to receive guidance from it. We call it the Self.
