Looking for Light in All the Right Places
The spiritual search for the 'True Self' is like looking for light. But everything you see is light. You cannot not see it. To see anything whatsoever is to see light! That is what you are! Light! Everything! This realization is very simple and very profound. It changes everything and it changes nothing. But there is another realization hidden inside of this one, waiting to be discovered. It changes everything and nothing remains unchanged. The second realization comes by slowly learning to differentiate the light from the objects that reflect the light. In the first realization you learn what you are; in the second, you under-stand what you are not.
