THE LIGHT OF YOUR BODY

THE LIGHT OF YOUR BODY

 
The light of the body is in your eyes.
 
When you look around with good eyes, whatever you see will be good, and, in this way, your whole self will be full of light.
 
But when you look around with evil eyes, your entire being will be full of darkness.
 
Therefore, see to it that your eyes, which were given to you to be light, don’t become a generator of darkness.
 
If what was made to light up your being turns into the opposite, then what was supposed to be light inside you will be darker than the darkest night.
 
Then you’ll have become twofold blind: You’ll no longer see your neighbor and you’ll no longer see yourself, because you’ll be blinded to see truthfully that what you see outside is nothing but what you’re unable to see inside of yourself.
 
Yes! How great your darkness will be!
 
Therefore, look at and into the way you see everything.
 
Things are what they are.
 
But your heart is the wellspring of your light.
 
So, don’t become a fountain of darkness to yourself by allowing what was made in you to be your wellspring of light to exist as a denial of its original calling: the eyes are made to see, not fabricate or falsify.
 
If you permit it, you’ll never know the boundaries of your own darkness.
 
The light of your being comes from your own heart’s purposes!
 
Evil purposes spread out black light. Then you see everything through eyes that project outwardly what is inside your own heart.
 
Eyes that decided to see what is good, and with goodness, will light up themselves, thus seeing everything else through the projection of what is true.
 
In this way, even the outer discerning of what is evil will correspond to light itself, because whatever makes manifest as it is, and as such, is light.
 
Light calls “good” even the things it discerns as evil because light sees truthfully what they correspond to. And this is good.
 
That’s why to the pure all things are pure, because the pure-hearted are those who see things just as they are and don’t project any fabrication onto them, whether trying to make good look better, or trying to make evil look lesser, or even trying to make it look worse.
 
Your being is lighted up by truth, not ignorance nor malice.
 
Ignorance subtracts from reality.
 
Malice either adds to or falsifies reality.
 
Every being who looks at life with good eyes carries a light that is recognized by men—even his/her opponents—and the spiritual world as well.
 
We pave ourselves and others a glowing road by always seeking the best ways for people to bring out the best inside of them.
 
On the other hand, we build a road of darkness to ourselves and a gloomy path to others by attempting to find the worst inside people.
 
Therefore, depending on the eyes…
 
People may even call you “crafty”, but God may be calling you just a wicked person.
 
Therefore, depending on the eyes…
 
God may be calling you a child of the Light even when people may be considering you a hopeful idiot because of your obsession to search for the best in people.
 
Therefore, depending on the eyes…
 
Let everyone say who he or she is!
 
May you say who you are by letting everyone see your eyes anchored into truth, reality and discernment; never malice, self-deceit and the attempt to disrupt your neighbor’s being, because this would ruin yourself too.
 
May men and angels watch you come in and go out at all times with a heart that doesn’t carry the eyes of darkness.
 
Look around you with eyes of light, always.
 
In this way, what a great light will spread out from your being!
