What if I am actually brimming with phosphorescent brilliance so great that I am blinded by it...and others too?
What if I believed that the Light of the World - the One whose name is Light - actually is who He says He is and dwells where He says He dwells....within?
All is brilliance - all is bursting with glorious sunshine. What if I actually believed that? What difference would it make?
I am bursting with light - not my own and nothing that I am conjuring up - but a reality of a spiritual dimension. The brilliance of Light filling the world - pervading and holding me and all creation. A Brilliance filters through my layers and free falls between the layers and washes and dissolves the layers. For Brilliance there are no layers - there are no rooms or different places allotted to Him. He is not able to be separated into here but not there - but occupies, with deepest love and brilliant Light - ALL.
All is held, loved, embraced, gentled, caressed - nothing hidden or lost, nothing disrespected or categorised. All is consecrated.
Brilliance - doesn't condemn or blame - but shines perfect love on all our shame, our own condemnation of self, our sin.
The Brilliance around and without, looks at the Brilliance within and can ONLY love....only LOVE. Brilliance loves Brilliance and are One and the same - and I am hidden in Brilliance with Brilliance.
