Light is the absence of darkness. It is awareness where once there was obliviousness, bliss where once there was depression, knowledge where once there was ignorance.

As Graham has said, it illuminates what is already there.

Light is our true nature. At the core of every living thing is a sphere of light. This light is the essence of God. I AM Light, and I shine my light with my smile, my love my compassion and my kindness. We all have light bodies which permeates and surrounds our physical bodies, and we can actually strengthen our light body with this awareness. The easiest way to gather more light is through deep mindful breathing.

Love and Light Hearted Bliss

What would our life be like without light? There are many reasons, and purpose why people use light, but in essence light is energy/electricity. Light gives us purpose, light gives us reason, light gives us hope, light gives us brightness, where there is darkness, and light is the open door to our soul. Without light to see we would not be able to function normally, and live a productive life.

Light is energy and is an essential part to all things in life, and can be used in a variety of ways for the intended purpose. Therefore, when light is used mystically, it unfolds mysteries of the spiritual realm, spiritually it unfolds the awakening to enlightenment in us, metaphysically it unfolds science to perform in rituals, and religiously it unfolds the teaching of religion in the church, the spirit of Light in the church, and burning candles.
