We all go through dark times. And we all want to see the light and be free from the pain of suffering. Who creates darkness within? Who can dispell this darkness? Who creates this prison and who can release us from this prison? Me is my answer. I am the binder and I am the releaser. Self illumination comes from within, self healing comes from within. As Saint Kabir sings: Do not look for God outside of you. God lives within.
As a human being I have gone through dark times in my life and have caused suffering in me and have caused pain in the hearts of people who love me. I felt lost and didn't know how to find myself. I did not feel pity for me. The wise saying "To err is human. To forgive is Divine." It is my conviction that we all have Divine Light within us. I remove my self-created blinder I can see that light within. I am that light. I am the very agent of illumination. This is my way of self illumination, self liberation.
Light of self awreness and daily practice of mindfulness meditation helps me to see the light within.
Let me conclude with the illuminating words of Elizabeth Gilbert:" In fact, I believe this is the only way the world will ever be illuminated, one bright act of grace at a time, all the way to the river."
