Many of our lives can seem very much like a long tumultuous journey, spanning decades and generations, while offering little further understanding than work, family responsibilities, financial obligations and the pursuits of material gain.
We can choose to remain asleep or half awake, as if we were in a dream believing that these are the only things that define us or…
We can attempt to become more awake and even fully awake, in regards to the apportioned light!…
Now stay with me here, as Jesus said in;
John 8:12 ” I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
The merit of Buddha’s resolutions, that were expressed in his forty-eight vows of perfections, Amitābha is the principal Buddha in the Pure Land Buddhism and is translatable as “Infinite Light,” hence Amitābha is often called “The Buddha of Infinite Light.” …
The Qur’an 24:35 : Ayat an-Nur, “The Light Verse” “Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His light is as if there were a niche and within it a lamp: the lamp enclosed in glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth guide whom He will to His light: Allah doth set forth parables for men: and God doth know all things.”
The Torah Genesis Chapter 1 בְּרֵאשִׁית “And God said: 3; ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light.” 4; And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
If one believes in a higher authority and ascribes to living by the rules of a belief system, I believe in doing so, one is seeking out the light of God’s love.
I like to think that in doing so…that a possibility exists that we might just be able to earn the light of day!…
BATTLES FOR THE SOUL
As our lives roll out before our feet like carpet reams designed to meet a monarch traveler’s magistrate, the line of path is not so straight as eyes are blind to Heaven’s gate.
Our years advance our mind’s designs as if we always knew. We see the edge defined by threads as carpet abounds with new.
This fabric binds our minds in time and makes us think what’s true, as firm treads past weren’t meant to last and frays at edge still binds these threads we hold what’s left as new.
Obstacles obscurities and things that will confront we toil in recent memories like dogs that train to hunt. Through the fade of aging memories this voluntary cast defines our moments provides atonement and helps to float our raft.
We live our lives among our tribes like fish in schools at sea, no bound to earthly magnet, no netted coils impede. The baited hooks enticements attract our need to feed so we’ll swim against the current while attempting to be freed.
Enticed by glimmering reflections or from flash of dangled lures, it seems that one’s direction can often get detoured. Define the light you’re seeing by fixing eyes upon the traits, steer clear and fear false glimmering that denies you Heaven’s gate.
Prepare for horseback gallops and retreats to safe refuge pre-positioned flank advancements of overwhelming fortitude. Toil in the aftermath of battles yet begun, prepare for adversaries with your army just as one.
Use your tools of conviction perseverance and circumstance all to shape defensive armor that deflects the glimmer’s lance. Just beyond allusive dangers that reflect apportioned light there sits the one observer that’s requisitioned each new life.
Stay true to the mission this obligation which is life to standup strong against what’s wrong even if you give your life. Neither for cherished memories nor opportunities yet to come we must respond to what is gleaming just beyond the setting sun.
It’s something oh so wonderful which escapes our human eyes, I only hope my chance to toast a soul of one survived…
