This spiral galaxy is an island universe of about 100 billion stars, 30 million light-years away toward the constellation Pisces.

Can a journey "begin"?

It is the eve of a new year, as some of Earth's humanity perceives it. Many perceive it as starting over, a new beginning, a new journey. It is a way we allow our minds to singularly and collectively use "time", which is nothing more than memories. Time is nothing more than memories. Are memories "things"? What are things? Is time some thing? Or is it no thing?  "Time is nothing more than memories." Another way of saying this is "Memories are nothing less than time." Which paradoxically circumnavigates us back to where we started with this thought: the beginning. And so there is only  beginning, and a centering in the all-beginning. We are speaking of both chronological and psychological time, although it appears we can separate them. Our mind thinks that it can psychologically create "time" from memories of light and dark, sun and stars, heat and cold. There is light and dark, sun and stars, heat and cold – but these are not "time." We think they are, and thus, we create an inner, psychological world that we assign as "reality." Thus a "journey" is also nothing more than a thought manifested in "time."

We offer some words from our book ~

The authors of this book have a simple yet grand wish for you—that you will no longer think you must fear what so many imagine as the “final silence.” Every thing has life, and because there is nothing but life, there is no silence anywhere. The very structure of the Intelligent Universe is light and music—singing, talking, and laughing. Life is real and death is not, so there is nothing to fear unless you fear life’s light-filled music. Death is not the end to life but another beginning, another birth. It is a door, a passage to more life, more than we could possibly imagine. And even though we are irreversibly immortal, we will never be able to imagine it all.

Human suffering becomes transformed when viewed through the new lens of knowledge gained about survival beyond death. As the light of conscious awareness is turned upon the alleged darkness, it will be seen that the negative things are actually positive, waiting in the shadows to be revealed. Some of this new knowledge appears majestically and quickly, but much of it is so subtly measured that sadly it’s often dismissed long before it fully arrives.

The experiences found in the following pages are shared endeavors between the Risen and the Yet-To-Rise. Many of the events are about the transformation of grief into many things, including joy. This transformation gives all involved greater access to one another. Whereas before our grief might have been draining the life out of our living, we will have opportunities to experience and subsequently understand that there is no such thing as death. This will allow us to put joy back into our living, which is the meaning of “enjoy.” Many these days seem to think that they should be getting joy out of living, but they have it backwards. Joy is something we put into living, for we are the channels for this ever-emerging energy, which is also our Source. That is, the Source is not only in us, but we are the Source. We are the fountains through which the waters of life flow. We are the lilies and the fields and the ground from which all being and awareness of being arises and manifests.

Those who turn their minds toward outflowing joy into their earthly experience will come to know a continually new and greater serenity in life and in living, as well as realizing that a joyful reunion with their loved ones is unavoidably inevitable. There is even comfort in knowing that if, for whatever reason, we cannot allow this outflowing to happen now, it will eventually happen in another now.

The Risen ask us to contemplate a spiral as we journey through this book. The spiral is an ancient emblem of life, transcendence, and eternity, running deep through all earthly cultures. It evokes deep relaxation and calm. It is revealed as a living symbol throughout Nature—in pinecones, the petals and seed heads of flowers, the arrangement of leaves on a stem; water spinning in a whirlpool, the shell of a snail, the winds circling the earth; the horns of a goat, the coils of a snake, and even a head of cauliflower. Stars, galaxies, and people dance in waves of living spirals. Spirals are found throughout our body—in the proportions of its components, in our fingerprints, in the movement of the blood as it travels through us, and in the pattern of the hair on our heads. The very strands of our DNA intertwine in an animated spiral.
    Life is also a spiral—a sacred relationship of matter, time, and space that leads to a continual transcendence of them. Life’s presence and actions are its own evidence—of itself and of its immortality. The center of life’s spiral is the center of the Self as it moves through eternity, never the same at any moment, yet never losing the essential spirit of its Origin. Life is the Original Spirit.
    The spiral often seems to be a maze, an icon of the life journey of a human being, seemingly struggling alone along an unknown path, while trying to discover its center. Many of us will spend a lifetime worrying about whether we are journeying toward or away from the center.
    For those of us still earth-embodied, our spiral path will change. In fact, it simply cannot exist without change, for the spiral of all life is a process. Upon our transition to places of existence beyond this planet, our journey will transmute into a new and more intensely living motif. We will each begin this transition in our own unique way, and then we will awaken as a Risen One into a new world. Instead of continuing to manifest as a seemingly isolated island encircled by a sea of unforgiving loneliness, a new life-spiral and a new way of being will emerge. As these new beings, we will rejoin all whom we have ever loved and who have loved us, including many old and new friends and lovers. We will emerge as an integral part of an infinitely spiraling community of like-minded others, to dwell in ever-present joy, learning, service, and love.

Know also that both fear and excitement arise from the same feeling. One brings you closer to love and adventure, while the other takes you further away from them. Your loved ones, who are in a spiritual body like yours, but in a physical body unlike yours, sense your growing excitement, and are not afraid. Let’s begin to look at these strange and wonderful implications with them.

The journey begins.

Cristes mæsse

When the tips of the pines
Touch the twinkling stars
On the cold, crisp nights of December,
May your blessings be more
Than you've ever hoped for,
And your Christmas a warmth to remember.

~ a poem on a card sent by Aunt Doris ~

For some reason, as I began cooking this morning of Christmas Day Eve, I was impressed to put on a CD of Mozart's Requiem Mass in D Minor – a strange kind of music for Noël . . . nonetheless, it affects me deeply, evoking complex emotions, all tinged with sadness.

The turnips are peeled and roasting – my contribution towards tomorrow's cozy gathering of friends, coming together to celebrate many things – consciously aware living, loving, and sobriety. Together, we manifest and share a "field of gratitude" that spontaneously arises from our gathering together.

In The Risen, we explore the idea of "fields" – realities that interpenetrate our material one, and which we often can sense emotionally, psychologically, spiritually and even physically. This idea is practically no longer abstract, but is quickly becoming a realized fact by primarily quantum scientists, many inspired by theoretical biologist Rupert Sheldrake's understanding that there is no "inside" or "outside" to one's mind. It is further noted in The Risen:
"Sheldrake suggests that memory is not stored in the brain, which is a kind of tuning system, rather than a device for storing memories. Our brain resonates within a morphic or morphogenic field. This resonance is a form-shaping field, an invisible organization structure wherein all experiential information is recorded and stored.
"Morphogenic fields are patterns that structure our reality. Older, primal societies have been well aware that the forms of our experiences are shaped by something greater than us, and of which we are simultaneously a part. Modern, 'civilized' societies have contracted the mind into the idea that the mind exists only within the confines of our physical skulls.
"Sheldrake would likely agree with the idea of the spirit of a holiday—that it’s a morphic field containing the memories and rituals associated with that holiday.
Viewed from this perspective, the spirit within a human being resonates from within the larger spiritual morphogenic field. From their perspective, the Risen suggest that the so-called boundaries of any field are arbitrary and subject to one’s perceptual awareness, meaning that the fields are infinite in space and time. Thus, Risen fields interpenetrate non-Risen fields, which also interpenetrate." (pp. 137-138)
In 21st century terms, this is "non-locality". Non-locality is one of several important principles of quantum physics, and has given rise to the concept of nonlocal space, explained by Pim van Lommel, MD as “ … a multidimensional space, with nothing but possibilities … and without certainties, without matter, and without a role for time and distance … (and) represents a hidden reality that, at the quantum level, exerts a continuous influence on our physical world, which is the complement of nonlocal space."  While interpenetrating the local consciousness of the physical brain, non-local consciousness expands unbounded beyond it, and is believed by many to support perceptual reality. This concept underlies theories about after-life survival, remote viewing, and other out-of-body experiences. (From his book, Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience, pp. 227-28) [Highly recommended.]

 Mozart claimed that he heard the music in his head and that all he had to do was transcribe it; he did this in near-perfect notation in a very brief window of time. Van Lommel suggests that such creativity, inspiration, and sudden scientific insight might be explained by unconscious, or even conscious contact with non-local consciousness. His book explores in great detail how near-death experiences bring the person into contact with other fields of consciousness – other worlds – in this way.

It's clear to me that I'm experiencing "fields within fields" – or worlds within worlds, as the Risen say. Obviously I'm not in the land of sleigh bells and candy canes, but somewhere in the Deep. I wonder what is is that  I'm accessing in the field of Mozart's Requiem. As I ponder more I begin to realize that there is sadness is the memory of the story of a little baby who will grow up, and as a young man,  "die" a seemingly tragic, lonely death, abandoned by the world he loved so much; I think of his mother as well. Mozart was dying as he struggled to finish this piece, and transitioned before it could be completed. He captured these complex ego-mind feelings of  the direct experience of his own transition, along with the "tragedy and loss" that are believed to be inseparable by death. Surrounding Requiem is much controversy and confusion, unanswered questions and myth. While the story of the man who was also a Christ clearly embodies the almost inconceivable news that there is no death, only more life, much myth and confusion surround the drama as well.

Many fields of spirituality and religion converge around this time of the year, a few according to the light reaching the earth from the sun, and others because someone once did or said something that continues to resonate with millions of still earth-bound souls. One funny question that I get asked often is about my "religion": "Are you Christian? Jewish? Buddhist? Pagan? Democrat? Vegetarian?"  My answer has always been the same: "I don't remember." There is the potential for magic and miracles of wonder in them all. Krishnamurti once said,  "Religion is the frozen thought of man out of which they build temples." He also said, "I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect."
The Requiem's saddening minor chords of the last movement of the sequence, the Lacrimosa, breaks off after only eight bars, unfinished. One can only wonder if Mozart was simultaneously having near-death experiences as he struggled to complete his mission. He transitioned on December 5, 1791. Perhaps I'm accessing something of his world, his field, his non-locality while listening to his final offering to our terrestrial world. The lovely little Christmas card from my Aunt Doris also brings me in contact with some kind of field. Now in her upper-eighties, she is one of the few remaining, older relatives still on the earth (once there were so very many!) There is, at first, sadness with this thought, but if I stay with the sadness, while letting the ego-mental thinking fade away, I'm brought to an awakened awareness of Authentic Self, and then through some sort of door, an entryway into a deeper aspect of another reality, and more light begins to shine through what I first perceived as shadow. This is the door to the Risen lands, and not only light, but laughter and joy beam forth from it, and suddenly I begin to understand the meaning of Cristes mæsse, which means literally, "the anointed one's mission." We all have this mission, as anointed with spirit by Creator Source, to find the door to Home, for "blessings more than we ever hoped for."

Tim made his transition on a Christmas Eve, falling deeply asleep here and slowly awakening there. Although my mental grief about it has been worked through over the years, and it seems nothing more than the dream it was, my body still remembers in its own way, and accesses biological fields that are inherently part of a terrestrial existence. So a little sadness is there too, wistfulness, really, which also becomes a door to where Tim actually is now, the present, which is all we every really have.

Look Beyond Appearances

Thank you to all those who have sent wishes of good things and other blessings.

Today's reading and affirmation at the Science of Mind Daily Meditation struck me as so appropriate, which is just what I needed to hear in my life right now. I'd like to share it with you, which was written by Kathy Juline, RScP

It is the light of the mind which determines whether you see confusion and limitation or whether you see order and abundance.
Ervin Seale

In the Northern Hemisphere, the winter solstice occurs today. If you live north of the equator, you will see a gradual lengthening of the day until the summer solstice occurs. The sun appears to be shining for a different period of time each day; however, that is an illusion. The sun is always shining, whether or not you can see it—just as Spirit is always present no matter what appearances may suggest. With this awareness in mind, look beyond appearances of disharmony or lack. Realize that omnipresent Spirit is shining in your life always and in every situation. A sign in the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City notes that “the hidden details and secret views” in the far corners and highest spires of the cathedral were placed there not necessarily to be seen, but to signify that God is fully and always present. The delicately carved cornice projecting from a high column is hidden from view, yet it is there. Similarly, daylight may last for a shorter or longer time, depending on the time of the year; but the sun, symbolizing Spirit, is always shining in your life, even when it does not appear to be. Today, realize that Spirit is the cause and essence of your life, and allow your life to be renewed. See beyond the darkness of temporary appearances.

I stand in the light of Spirit, seeing love, beauty, and harmony everywhere. Knowing that my being is one with infinite, eternal Life, I abide always in the presence of perfect wholeness.

Winter Solstice Arrives

Indonesia, Bali, Ubud, Puri Lukisan museum,close-up on local painting by Ketut Budiana ("Kala Rau") depicting lunar eclipse.

Today is the full moon and first day of winter, marked by the Winter Solstice, (or Yule) the year's shortest day. The winter solstice this year coincides with a total lunar eclipse, the first time the two events have overlapped in 372 years. The full moon will be darkened by Earth's shadow as our planet passes between it and the sun.More about this event here.

In The Risen, August briefly relates about coming upon a full lunar eclipse that coincides with the ending of his task to help manifest the book:
"In childish awe I watched as the Moon, the Night Mother, masked herself with the face of the Sun, the Father of Day. For a few transitory moments she assumed a persona whose origins were of a very different world, transmuted into something shockingly new and seemingly real. The mystery was revealed upon her unmasking, and order was quickly restored to the heavens." (p. 301) 
At first, this erroneously sounds as if the sun is literally passing between the earth and moon. Yet here we have an attempt to put into words August's mystical experience about the greater mysteries of Light as manifested in the human experience within the Universe, as suggested by the lunar eclipse. We know that mystic language is not one of words. With some spirit-guided help, we will try to expand upon this in a bit more detail here.

"The face of the Sun" symbolizes the inner realization of the ever-present, all consciousness of Creator Source. The Moon is a symbol of ego-mind - in this case, an ego-mind that has yet to "see the Light," the truth about Reality. This Truth, which is that the human reality experience is immortalized potential – symbolized by the Earth – is still hidden (denied) by the ego-mind.

"Mother of Night" tells us that the ego-mind has ''given birth" to the denial'. This false creative act (or simulation) supports the ego-mind's belief in death, and that it has power to assert over life and death in some way. Its denial to accept that it is not immortal is the shadow it casts upon its own face, thus obscuring or blinding itself to the True Light of Creator Source, and appropriating the immortal human's existence (the earth) to keep between itself and the Light. Thus the appearance of a shadow  – the illusion, or what a child would see as seemingly real, but a mystery.  The child here is the unconscious Authentic Self, who, blinded by the ego-mind, becomes mesmerized by "childish awe." When the mask falls away and the moon is seen for what it is, order is quickly restored to the heavens – or the true world as ruled by Authentic Self.
Here are a few quotes by some mystics that might bring more light to our endeavor here – one by Boris Pasternak, one of August's Risen guides and colleagues, and another by Victor Hugo - little known medium and mystic, who wrote a book about his seances, and who is also an ancestor of August's.

"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."
Albert Camus

"It snowed and snowed, the whole world over, Snow swept the world from end to end. A candle burned on the table; A candle burned."
Boris Pasternak

"Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart."
“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.” (August once received this in a fortune cookie after a long conversation about Victor Hugo.)
Victor Hugo

"Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(Goethe also said: “We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.”)

“The moment we indulge our affections, the earth is metamorphosed, there is no winter and no night; all tragedies, all ennui, vanish, - all duties even.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanks Phyllis & Marc!

"Peace On Earth" by Marc Brinkerhoff

Thanks and blessings to my friends, Phyllis & Marc, who hosted a magical yule celebration last evening with amazing food and ambiance. Kudos to Marc for somehow getting as many lights and decorations on the tree as humanly possible; clearly you had devic and faerie help. Phyllis's bubble lamps were a huge hit!  Even when the apartment lights went out several times due to so many decorations, the angels were there to keep everyone calm. Although I'm not sure we all noticed, since there were so many fascinating guests who were deep in conversation about some equally fascinating things. Even Tim was there, as were many others in spirit. Many thanks to Phyllis for the takeaway gift box of insanely delectable brownies, almost too good to eat . . . but I will eat them anyway! I'm so very privileged to have such loving, giving, strange & wonderful friends!

~ August Goforth & Dr. Eldon Taylor
will continue to discuss  The Risen at Hay House Radio ~

To listen, go here.


Many thanks to all who have purchased our book since it went public last September. We are also grateful for the modern process that allows it to be "printed on demand" and thus avoid a misuse of resources and space.

This year, 50% of royalties will be donated to NY SAVE — a non-profit organization to assist people in NYC who cannot easily afford veterinary services for their beloved animal family members. Fiona and McHenry encourage you to donate generously to similar organizations in your area.

August Explains It All and Everything The Best Ever Good Job

HAMLET: O God, I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams.
GUILDENSTERN: Which dreams indeed are ambition, for the very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream.
HAMLET: A dream itself is but a shadow.
ROSENCRANTZ: Truly, and I hold ambition of so airy and light a quality that it is but a shadow’s shadow.
HAMLET: Then are our beggars bodies, and our monarchs and outstretched heroes the beggars' shadows.

~Shakespeare: Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2

Friend and reader, John, asks:
“ … just a quick whacky question for Tim (and you), if it's possible. It is our first time in body here. Got it! However, is it possible to have been somewhere / from somewhere else prior to this life? Or are we 100% 'factory new' creations? You see the incarnating here for the first time makes absolute sense to me, however I have had such a strong sense of somewhere else prior to this life here. I can not explain it any better than this (except for a strong sense of the colour 'green'!)... thus I am call this a 'whacky question'. I had been waiting for this question to take better shape before I asked it ...however that didn't occur so I am asking it as best I can.”

John, I also cannot explain it well in terrestrial language, or at least any better than Tim has through me in the chapter on the subject. As you have waited for the question to take shape, let the same happen for the answer, which must ultimately come from you and only you. But let me try to summarize it all as best as I see it from my perspective and after having some relationship with the material over the years. (I would also like to stress that there are many "clues" interspersed throughout the book in the form of footnotes.)

As Tim's exploration suggests, it appears we are sparked into being – as a being – once and only once; Creator Source gets it completely right the first time, so there’s no need to “return” to try to get it any more right.

But because we are so relatively limited in our earth-defined and confined senses, we are aware of barely a smear of a smidgen of a wisp of what's really going on around us  – not just in our own personal and shared dimensions, but in that of other dimensions, including that of the Risen – interpenetrating ours. We do, however, pick up a lot of stuff on the perimeters, which “leaks in” and then which our ego-mind interprets in its own self-centered and (usually) fear-based way. Based on its memories and those of others, it makes up answers and stories to satisfy its own need to be "alive," important and in control; and then we (the sleeping Authentic Self) believe its suggestions, as we also may believe the ego-minds of others who try to convince us that their stories are true and correct; and in some cases, that something bad will happen to us if we don’t subscribe to those same beliefs — so we should give those ego-minds control over our ego-minds. And many of us do just that.

If Authentic Self were fully awake and aware, it would be able to see Reality for what it truly is, and enjoy an awesomely fuller life – Its immortality, actually – without fear.

All that being said, upon finishing with this body and transitioning to another, our minds are powerful enough to generate whatever environment we most deeply desire - which is actually what we do here on earth, and quantum mechanics scientists are saying just that - and The Principle of Affinity will draw us to like-minded others to join with and generate personal and  shared geographies. We do all this on earth as well, but are too gravity and time-laden to (usually) be conscious of it. Hopefully we will transition to a light-filled, awakened, Risen life.  But if we should have such strong beliefs about reincarnating back to the earth, and fed by intense emotional desire, our minds will generate that experience as directed by the ego-mind.

The difference is that the ego-mind's result will be an experience, but not the original real thing it yearns for; a simulation, in other words. As a simulation itself, the ego-mind can only produce simulations. In still other words, what you, as controlled by ego-mind see, you get; what is expected, appears. (So maybe expect something different?) Some of us may actually be in our "first-sparked" appearance, but many of us are actually living (i.e. sleeping) in one of these simulated earths right now, and one that is not much different than the one we left, which is what ego-mind thinks it wants. It can't imagine anything other than what its own memories tell it, which is why it teaches us to cling to memories, to cherish and strengthen them, so it will have much more power to draw on while using our actual energy to generate its simulation. The ego-mind cannot imagine anything else because it doesn't have the ability to imagine. However, we, as Authentic Self, do have this ability, which has been gifted to us out of the unconditional love of Creator Source's own Divine Imagination, and that is why the material of The Risen book stresses imagination so much as a way to begin to get off the cosmic merry-go-round. Is it any wonder, then, that the ego-mind works hard to convince us that imagination isn't real? It will even co-opt our own imaginations by suggesting to us what to imagine; because we are asleep and highly suggestible, we do it, and with spectacular results.

So if we are "returning", it is to the same scene, the same earth, the same life, the same relationships, triumphs and tragedies, over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. Not a completely different one. As described in The Risen somewhere, we are "trapped in a frozen hell" and may have been doing it over and over for many transitions,  because we believe and then think we have to. But we don't. This is the Great Cosmic Wheel of Birth and Rebirth the ancients speak of. They would have advised ways of getting off it, but our ego-minds have reinterpreted, misinterpreted, ignored or denied such guidance in order to try to ensure its own survival. To be able to delay its inevitable dissolution, and if one's ego-mind is strong enough, it can interfere with the correct transition to a healthy Risen state. The Authentic Self is still asleep, and therefore dreaming, and unable to distinguish its own dreams from the thought-generated world of the ego-mind, which is also a dream. A sleeping Authentic Self is highly suggestible – just like someone who’s been hypnotized – and is controlled by ego-mind’s suggestions. Upon finally leaving the earth body – and unless Risen guides and healers can intervene in some way – instead of moving on to Risen geographies, the sleeping Authentic Self is instead carried along into the dream manifested by the controlling and insane ego-mind, and while mostly unconscious of it, is not comfortable – in fact, it’s deeply, deeply sad – homesick, really, for its real home. Real with a capital ‘R’. It also feels trapped, depressed, powerless, and will do anything to feel better. The ego-mind will continue to suggest ways to feel better, (all lies,) while actually gaining more and more control.

Our Risen loved ones, guides and other advocates know that we will eventually awaken, and do not worry about it, since they know time is an illusion, and as consciously awakened Authentic Selves, are undisturbed and at rest – but this does not stop some of them from staying with us, guiding us, and gently making suggestions to help us awaken – especially when we gain enough realization to ask for help.  They will respond! Sometimes their ways are subtle, and at other times, designed to shock us a bit more awake. Although there are countless ways suggested by religions, philosophies and other spiritual systems to become more conscious, to awaken, to get "shocked" back into consciousness, and one of the most powerful and successful shocks is to finally come face-to-face with the fact that we really and truly survive “death.” For some, this will be the visitation or manifestation of a loved one once thought gone forever; for others, it will be events at séances, dreams or unexplainable sights, sounds, phone calls, messages, repeated numbers popping up, songs on the radio, impossible, bizarre “coincidences.” The Risen are Master Artist Orchestrators when it comes to these things.

The Risen asked Tim and me to help them manifest this book, which is their attempt to help awaken the sleeping Authentic Self – and only one of many ways – to enable those who are ready to join with the Risen now, instead of waiting until we leave this body. While we can't yet share the same physicality with them, we can share – and very directly sometimes – minds, hearts, and souls. And now there is increasing activity showing that they are striving to join our physicalities, as evidenced by physical manifestation phenomena at certain seances and other events.

As Tim mentions, here's a fun question – well, it depends on one's idea of "fun." What would it be like to be fully Risen, fully awake and then do what the ego-mind does anyway?

Regarding your strong sense of the colour green, explore this without thought — that is, disengaging the ego-mind — and  you may discover this is one of the subtle ways your Risen guides and friends are trying to get  your attention in order to help you awaken.

Our wish for you is that you relax into your awakening, while continuing to ask for assistance from the Risen.
Love, Light, and Blessings,
August & Tim

Festival of Lights

The following is taken from the Science of Mind Magazine, December 2, 2010, contributed by Kathy Juline, RScP:

The light of Love is always present, even when it does not a first appear. Spirit, being omnipresent, shines eternally in your life and in the life of each of us. This is the inspiring message of Hanukkah, the Jewish holy day that is observed today. Hanukkah ... celebrates light as a symbol of freedom from fear and negativity. The message of this Festival of Lights is that an eternal light shines in the life of each of us, even in times that seem darkest. Recognizing this truth, we consciously align with Spirit and behold the light of Spirit shining in our lives. As we do so, we see beyond fear to the truth of love and freedom.

Our obligation is to give meaning to life and in doing so to ocvercome the passive, indifferent life.
Elie Wiesel

Light has the power to overcome darkeness; not by combating darkness, but by being exactly what it is:  light.
The Science of Mind, page 183.
