-Henryk Skolimowski (The Times Of India Dated : 30-6-2011)
The majesty of light is endless. After having created crawling worms, it created slender galloping gazelles. And afterwards it brought about clever, resourceful monkeys. And then humans- who learnt to read and write. In due time, enthralling stories are written, which excite our minds and imagination to the point where words are often more important than bread and physical sustenance.
Light is majestic, generous and clear. Human words are many and some are obtuse minds. Combined , they create areas of darkness. Light is clear. Darkness is not a realm in itself: it is created by obtuse minds and words. Dwell in light and you will be all right.
To see the true majesty of light, simply see the endless radiance of the universe and then the continuous radiance of your inner being… and the glory of light. For the universe means light in its radiance, dignity, majesty and effervescent transcendence. Light in every act of your understanding, in its generosity, in its continuous giving and loving. Light is but one enormous all-embracing mother.
How can you become light, while you are already IT? But think: the potency is not the same thing as its actualization. Nothing comes from nothing. If it is not in the seed it is not in its actualization. Where does the seed come from? From other seeds. And the ultimate seed –where does it come from? Here is the rub. May be there are no answers to ultimate questions.
Yet, we want to understand, don’t we? Yes, but what is understanding? It must be nothing else but the rays of light that illumine. Illumine what? The state of your being. From what to what? From being less illumined to being more illumined. Why is it important? Because it is the way of light: from being less illumined to being more illumined. Such is the path of the evolutionary unfolding of light.
Until when? Until it becomes perfectly realized. What does that mean? The end of the story of light. Does that mean the end of the story of the universe? Yes, it means the end of the story of the universe. And then what? And then there are no “whats”. We understand everything because we are everything. No questions, no answers.
When the universe arrives at the ultimate point of the self- realization of light, there will be no problems of any kind. In the meantime, there are some, yes, with the actualization of these enormous cosmic seeds, which are stored in us .
Human consciousness has been a marvel of creation of light. It has shown flashes of genius and extraordinary depth. As it was the case with the illuminati. Yet the consciousness of the whole species is another matter. This consciousness has a long way to go.
At present there is no such thing as absolute consciousness with which we can connect. For now, absolute consciousness is but a myth. Human consciousness is evolutionary- as everything else is. It will reach its apogee of enlightenment at the end of time. In the meantime we need to cultivate our small gardens of enlightenment, for we don’t truly know what ultimate enlightenment is. We should seek to make small steps in our enlightenment for they are real- an anticipation of greater things to come. Above all we should seek the great peace within, which is available to all and which is a precondition of any form of enlightenment.
