Ships of the Dawn

"You are a vessel of light. You are surrounded by vessels of light. As you voyage it is your light, not some external source, which becomes the dawn that overpowers darkness to create the conditions for growth. In the metaphysical world light is created by the intensity of each soul’s commitment to hir own enlightenment. Enlightened individuals are beacons whose light enters the dimensions of time, creating permanent illumination for all who follow afterwards. But you, captain of your own small craft, how much of that light currently burning in your cabin are you willing to risk by bringing it up on deck? Is it secure enough to weather the storms of the outer world?
"Now, as never before, the self-generating night of ignorance thirsts for its own extinction in the growth of light. Your service to that light may be no more than to allow its qualities of warmth and illumination to shine throu you and connect the earth and to the unseen world. You can only bring to any situation what you are: if you are at peace with yourself you spread healing: if your heart and mind are at war you cannot help spreading division. Horrors exist on the physical plane, now, as they have always existed, they are the consequence of humans’ free will. Do not despair at the folly and self-slaughter of humanity, rather, marvel at its capacity for love and healing.
"No one part of the world’s experience can be transformed separately: those fortunate enough to know enlightenment, security or plenty have a direct responsibility for the welfare of the less fortunate. Any suffering you turn your back on will in time become yours. Only by entering fully into the earth’s experience of pain, desolation, murder and abuse can you be released from anger-energy into the multi-dimensional world of wholeness.
"Within the metaphysical realm there is neither gravity nor one single direction. The function of pain is to release you from gravity: the function of joy is to offer you direction. The more your light shines the more it reflects in others, and the more you become aware of the incredible multi-dimensional dawning of an enlightenment that is encircling this globe. We see its effect in the many movements inspired by a vision of individual and planetary wholeness. Some are networks of light, some mere disconnected pinpricks. Which are you?"
