In his climb to a peak no feet have ever trod,
He seeks through a penumbra shot with flame
A veiled reality half-known, ever missed,
A search for something or someone never found,
Cult of an ideal never made real here,
An endless spiral of ascent and fall
Until at last is reached the giant point
Through which his Glory shines for whom we were made
And we break into the infinity of God.
Across our nature’s border line we escape
Into Supernature’s arc of living light.
Savitri (Book One: Canto 3)
Choosing Our Own Peace Over Everything Else!
Living light is a prayer for more and more of us to recognise the light that we all are and then begin our life living as that light. Once we begin to live as that light, then we can look at ourselves and our movements with sincerity, honesty and attention- it has the power to move, transform and evolve us.
In each event of our life, we have the power to turn our attention within ourselves and use our 'Free Will' to decide what is important to us. When we start to honestly see things as they are and not as we assume or imagine them to be, we realize that most of the load that we are carrying is self-created. We always have a choice to drop the loads that we are carrying. We have a choice to let go and lead a life rid of attachment, sense of doer-ship and baggage of the past. This is possible, only when we give ourselves time to connect within.
At Living Light, our work implicitly focuses on recognising the existence of this Free Will and to create a life full of contentment, peace and adventure by giving loving attention to ourselves.
When you touch one thing with deep awareness you touch everything
