THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD IS THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. John 1:9
Darkness is always the symbol of ignorance, while light is the symbol of wisdom and Truth. Darkness is always temporary, while Truth is eternal. Our problems, which are our individual darkness, never long endure. At the most a problem could only endure ninety to a hundred years for any of us. But, it need not last for even a day of we can turn to the Light of Truth and find our peace. Within each of us, there is something that is saying, “I am the light of the world, if ye will follow me, ye shall have eternal light.” This paraphrase of one of Jesus’ great statements is true for all who will try it. It assures us that if we make the effort to look for the good in any situation, we shall find it, and having found it, it will increase, and the evil therein will decrease. Right where we are, God is. In the midst of our problem is the Mind and the Idea that will solve the problem. We must know this and act upon this promise.
I walk in the Light of Truth. There is no darkness on my pathway, for my God is with me, and my God indwells me. I am the Light of my own world, and I let my Light shine. I radiate Divine Love to all I meet this day. I speak the loving word to all I greet this day. I know that from a center within myself there flows out through me the Light of healing. All my affairs are now illuminated with Infinite Intelligence. I am wise with the wisdom of Spirit. The Light of God fills my consciousness and I know everything that I need to know instantly. My pathway is radiant with good and I am divinely guided in all my ways. My world is alive with God, and my body is filled with the Light of Life.
