We are light.
Our Bodies are light.
We are free.
We know fulfillment and can feel it rise within and expand out.
What is the significance of light? What do I gain by perceiving myself as light?
If I think of myself as light, I distinguish myself with an identity that is expansive. Where can light not go? Where can light not reach? It can go anywhere; it can fill anything. Even “solid” objects have so much space between their molecules that light can go there. There is even space within the space within the electrons and protons of the molecules. Light can expand infinitely in all directions.
Thinking of myself as light, while also thinking of my body as light, distinguishes “me” from my body. My identity itself can be seen as the part of me that is bounded (my body) and the part of me that is infinite (my mind). Yet, if all is light, I am still the same. Whether body or mind, I am light. I exist as light; I am encompassed by light; I experience light. All is light.
Having the sensation of being light is like being transported beyond yourself. It is a momentary (or lengthy, if you are lucky!) experience of freedom…because there are no boundaries, there are no limits. Everything is possible. The body is no longer a barrier; the mind has expanded to encompass All.
In this expansion, I experience uniting with All, joining with All in the experience of Oneness. I have relinquished the idea of limiting my mind; I have let go of the idea of separation; I am Whole, because I am One with everything.
Knowing myself as One invites the feeling that made this possible; I welcome love in my experience. This is fulfillment. Here is peace.
Why would I limit my identity to something other than this? Why would I limit my Self? In these sensations of boundlessness, I gain more of my sense of Self. I release more barriers to my Self. I perceive myself, and my body, as beyond the physical. My awareness expands.
Limitations recede. I am my Self. I melt into my Self, expanding out from myself. I am fulfilled with my Self.
