Matter has been aptly defined as crystallized light. The fall of light determines the shape of things, the obscuration of things, and the glory of things. Light shows us illusions while suggesting what is behind them. Spiritually, light shapes forms. In this sense, life is the play of light on light. We might say that life is light dependent, or light originated, or that life is Light. All seem to express parts of the picture. We know we are “star born,” born of light, and the whole Earth is as well.
The sun serves life by radiance and in this is the secret, like a lost light revealed. Probably, to “serve” means to be more sun-like. The sunrise in human consciousness is the realization of sun-like qualities–a symbol of our higher life.
