I HAVE ILLUMINATION
The gates represent the place in our consciousness where the Divine flows into the human. The light which artists painted around the saints represents the light of Heaven. Illumination or cosmic consciousness is a reality. This is what Jesus referred to when he said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
As the dawn of illumination breaks and the shadows of evil flee, the hills of God are touched with the glow of Divine rays. I wake to the thought that I am one with all life. I lift mine eyes to the sky and sing with the joy of one who beholds the Eternal Presence in everything.
Today I lift up my consciousness to the light and I know the King of Glory will come in. Today I keep this inner light, this Candle of the Lord, trimmed and burning, for I know that the bridegroom, which is Christ, my true Self, will enter my consciousness. I know that there is a Divine radiance emanating from everything. I know that in this light which emanates from the very center of everything there is no darkness at all. In this light, I see the light.
