Worldly Reflections

Without intuitive light, we exist imprisoned in symbols, in forms, in surrounding things. But by light we pass through symbol to meaning by way of intuition. Or failing this we are caught in symbol, mistaking it for the real. To be caught is easy, because symbols are not entirely dark–there is borrowed light in them, a moonlight reality, mirror of the sun’s radiation. Without the sunlight of intuition, only glamour is visible, and we exist then in an eerie moonlight world, knowing only surface lights. While moonlight is from the surface, sunlight shines from an inner depth. So moonlight is borrowed but sunlight is fiery-original and an apt symbol of intuition. On the surface we live in a moonlight world of things, yet rightly seen each natural thing conjures for us the sunlight world.

True life expresses in a radiance that illuminates all surrounding things. Knowledge or consciousness may be conceived as the source of this interior radiance–it is the light of intuition or teaching from within. It is revelation of truth, the release of imprisoned splendor.

  1. Learning the moon had no light of its own was a major turning point in my knowledge of Christianity. That we ‘the thing that seeks’ have no light except that which is reflected from the source of learning followed and explains the illumination of spiritual light that is seen by others who observe. the result of such knowledge from within those who are benefited. What follows now for me in this search to understand is that we not only view such illumination from people but from the various things that happen within nature and in the learning process in general. Please correct me if I am understanding incorrectly/
