God is light - the importance of the light within us
God is Light - God is LOVE

The Importance of Light

Jesus tells us in the Gospel of Thomas, an un-canonized holy book, the following:
"Jesus said, If your leaders say to you, Look, the (Father's) kingdom is in the sky, then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, It is in the sea, then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is within you."

Within Us
It is like being born out of our mothers from death to this very life and our current progression from that darkness to light. We all have God within us; part of us; we just need to amplify that 'light.' Thus our lives are sacred. Time is light.

The word "light" appears about 270 times in the Bible.
The first time the term light is used, is of course in Genesis, very early on:

Genesis 1:3
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

Genesis 1:4
God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

So, light is God, darkness is Satan or evil. But, light can reach you in the night, of course, we can see that and God informs us:

Genesis 1:16
God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

Acts 26:18
to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

John 1:4
In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

John 1:7
He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

KEY ONE HERE:

John 1: 8
He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
&version=NIV> [link to www.biblegateway.com] [Cool!] &version=NIV

John 1:9
The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

John 3:20
Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

John 3:21
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

John 8:12
[ The Validity of Jesus' Testimony ] When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

1 John 1:5
[ Walking in the light ] This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]


Revelation 21:23
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

Revelation 22:5
There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.
[link to www.biblegateway.com]

God is light; God is LOVE.

God is not the light or that would mean that "God" is shinning threw me and I assure you he is not.

I have light and can even make a rainbow.

I beg to differ: Do you know what the center of an atom is.......the nucleus? And do you know what makes up the nucleus? Protons and neutrons! And do you know what makes up "protons and neutrons? Even smaller particles......call photons! (little particles of Light)

And you thought God did shine through you......:)

Re: God is light - the importance of the light within us
THE SECRET OF LIGHT

The CAUSE is real. The EFFECT is but a simulation
of the reality.

The Self of man is cause. His self-creating body is
effect.

God's universe of magnetic Light is static.

God's perpetually creating electric wave universe of
two moving lights is dynamic. It forever moves. The
two moving lights are projected through each other from
the static One to create the illusion of the idea they but
manifest. The illusion which manifests the idea of Cre-
ation through seeming motion is not the idea which it
seemingly manifests.

Creation is the product of Mind-knowing expressed in
form by Mind-Thinking.

The product of Mind is not the idea which it simu-
lates. No idea of Mind is ever created. It is but simulated
by form and motion. Idea is eternal and belongs to
God's still universe of knowing.

Form of idea in matter is transient but is eternally
repeated as transient form of idea.

THE POSITIVE PRINCIPLE

The foundation of the spiritual universe is stillness;
the balanced stillness of the One magnetic Light of God.

Balanced stillness is the Positive Principle of stability
and unity, in it there are no negations.



w



CREATOR AND CREATION



THE NEGATIVE PRINCIPLE



The foundation of the physical universe is motion; the
ever-changing motion arising out of pairs of unbalanced
conditions which must forever move to seek the bal-
anced stillness of unity from which they sprang as mul-
tiple pairs of units.

Unbalanced motion is the Negative Principle of insta-
bility, multiplicity and separateness which is this physi-
cal universe of electric octave waves of opposed lights.

In the Negative Principle there is no positive. It is
composed entirely of pairs of negations which are for-
ever voiding each other, cancelling each other's action
and reaction, thus negating each other by never allow-
ing either one to exceed its fixed zero of universal still-
ness.

QUALITY BEGETS QUANTITIES

The still magnetic Light universe of God's knowing is
an invisible, unchanging, unconditioned and unmeasur-
able quality from which visible, changing, conditioned
and measurable quantities spring to simulate those qual-
ities through two-way wave motion.

There is no one word in any language to express that
quality so we must use many words, all having the same
meaning but different connotations.



W



THE SECRET OF LIGHT



These words are mind, consciousness, love, life, truth,
desire, knowledge, power, balance and law.

The God-quality of the One Light is seemingly trans-
formed into quantities by being divided into pairs of
oppositely-conditioned light pressures of this electric
universe. These divided pairs are then multiplied into
countless octave wave units of light pressures and set in
opposite directioned motion to create the illusion of
sequence, change, dimension, condition and time in a
universe where none of these effects of motion exist.

The calm sea, for example, is an unchanging, unmea-
surable quality of oneness, of sameness and stillness.
Upon its calm surface there is no change, nothing to
count or to measure.

The moment that quantities of waves spring from that
quality of calm, those quantities can be measured. Like-
wise, they are forever changing. Nor are there two
points in them which are similarly conditioned.

This creating electric universe is composed of moving
light waves which sprang from a calm sea of the One
still Light.

It is a universe of moving pairs of quantities which
simulate the quality of stillness from which those quan-
tities spring. The quantities of divided and conditioned
pairs of opposite lights which thus simulate the One are
not the One they simulate.

nothing exists, not ever has anyone ever been able to see anything solid. You use an electron microscope and keep getting smaller and smaller only to find absolutely nothing...

What I am still dwelling on is that fact that God and Jesus existed before the light was ignited within the heavens (dimensions) that we see. That is amazing.

Sound is more fundamental for creation and spirituality than light.

'And God said, "Let there be light."'

The command for the creation of light is spoken. The word has the power.

Now that is an interesting observation! However, sound can not exist in a vacuum. Since everything is made of light, it can not be sound that God spoke... :)

Good catch 'deepend'.......for Sound, is simply 'Light slowed down'!
