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 Peace Over Everything Else!
Living light is a prayer for more of us to recognize the light that we all are, and then begin living as that light. Once we start our journey towards simplicity and peace, we begin to look at ourselves and our movements with sincerity, honesty and attention and that has the power to 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 and live light. We have a choice to let go of my images and expectations and lead a simpler life without the sense of doer-ship and baggage of the past. But this is possible, only when we give ourselves time to connect within and look at things and events honestly.
At Living Light, our work implicitly focuses on recognizing the existence of this Free Will and to create a life full of contentment, peace and adventure by giving loving attention to ourselves.
