John 8:12 Jesus spoke anew to them saying; “I exist as presence – Being – the spiritual light of the Cosmos. Whoever walks in presence step for step (through conscious living) shall not walk through life in spiritual darkness (the unconsciousness of ignorance) but will hold (within them) the spiritual light of all life – the living breath.” (My translation)
In the Gospels conscious living is symbolised by light. This means to be as fully present to life as you can be. This can also be called Love, for Love is consciousness, it is universal. As we awaken we fluctuate between ego love which fears rejection, feels hurt, seeks revenge and hates – and Universal Love that has no opposite – no fear. This is how we learn the difference between the Love – Light of conscious presence – that Jesus speaks of, and the love of the ego.
The centre of the great circle of Life exists at the core of every human being, whether we are aware of it or not. The presence of God that we seek is already within us and cannot be hidden. If you would only become still and silent you would feel God’s Presence now, opening your heart.
