The Light


Darkness is nothing but the absence of light. As soon as there is light, darkness no longer exists. You cannot create darkness, but when you take away light then darkness appears.

In the dark there is uncertainty, weariness and perhaps even a fear of the unknown or the unseen.

When there is ignorance in our lives there are these feelings of fear and uncertainty. With knowledge there is enlightenment, wisdom and a freedom that releases the soul from sorrow.

Spirituality brings enlightenment. It brings the light back into the soul and frees it from fear and pain. And as one practises and applies spirituality into their daily life, it makes the soul shine bright and brighter until it becomes a guide for others too.

Step into the light today.


Om Shanti

Fear is an Illusion!

boxed_inFear is definitely an illusion – It is not real. It is generated through our thoughts and manifests in our feelings.

Our thoughts create a story in the mind which then generates fear. Even though the story has not yet unfolded – and may never do so, we create and experience that fear by just thinking about it. There may be a very real possibility of danger in our story, but fear is a choice.
We can either live our dreams or live our fears. For many of us we find our living is based on a foundation of fears!!
Our fears are essentially the anxiety of how to deal with the unknown – loosing face, being wrong, failure. Getting clarity on the root cause of fear will help diffuse the ticking anxiety bombs and release our creative power.
When there is darkness there can be a lot of fear. To eliminate fear we need to bring light – the light of awareness, of understanding and enlightenment.
Let us make a choice to bring light into our fear.
Om Shanti

Enlightenment is generally used to describe a spiritual awakening – A state of consciousness that has moved from darkness into light through the realisation of a spiritual truth.

When there is no enlightenment then we walk through life in ‘darkness’ or ignorance. The biggest ignorance of all is the awareness of my being a body. The fact and reality is that I am not a body but a soul.

When this basic awareness of ‘who I am’ is false then we act from a place of misconception. We walk through life making decisions based on this illusion. The awareness is incorrect and thus the way we see situations in life and the solutions, will also be coloured by the same ignorance, the same darkness.

Darkness in itself does not actually exist. Darkness is only a state that happens in the absence of light. When we switch on the light of soul consciousness we see a very different story and a very different solution.

Om Shanti
