Luke 8:16-18

Jesus said, “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear.”

Each of us has an inner light.

We are “children of the light” as St. Paul put it (1 Thessalonians 5:5).

We come from the Light of life itself, the very Word spoken by God.

And what came to be was all life, and “the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5).

Near Death Experiencers are speaking of this Light that seems to envelope them as their souls are filled with a Love beyond description.

This Light, the energy of Love itself (God is love 1 John 4:8), is intrinsically part of everything that is.

In searching for words to describe this, St. Paul used the word Christ stating that “in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17).

We cannot escape this Living Light because it is everywhere.

As Paul put it, “for in (God) we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

We can live in the delusion of human-made constructs, ego-generated narratives, but nothing is hidden from this Light.

So, as Jesus says, “Take care how you hear.”

Take care how you experience life.

Do not let that which is temporary and fleeting obstruct the Light which you are meant to shine.

Allow the Light of Love to flow through your words and actions.

How else will God’s “will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10)?
