CHENNAI: Light is the vital power for our existence in physical world, because light makes it possible for us to see things as they are. Without light there is nothing but stumbling and groping in the dark. That’s why we experience subdued activity  in the event of a black-out.

Only.jpgJust as light is necessary in physical world, in the same way spiritual light or enlightenment is a pre­requisite for the human soul’s journey towards perfection. Without this enlightenment, there would be a black-out in the mind which would impair our ability to distinguish right and wrong. Since all actions originate in the mind as thoughts first, its necessary to support right type of actions with right type of thoughts, or else it may result in  fear, confusion and accidents leading us into grief and sufferings. In order to accelerate our journey towards perfection, light alone is not enough as speedy progress calls for decisiveness, direction and thrust, which are possible with divine insight — the mind’s eye which must always remain in alacrity to envision every event and situation in its right perspective.

By developing a  holistic vision that takes into account all aspects of time and space and the consequences of thoughts and deeds, we would be able to liberate ourselves  from the narrow minded approach. We would not be blindfolded by pride and prejudices and be free from fears and favours. The dust of  illusion and the thick fog of confusion prevents the mind’s eye to function properly. Lets enlighten to put to use this triple power of light, might and divine insight so that we always do the right thing at the right time at the right place and in the right manner and fly towards our goal of accomplishment in successful endeavour with enthusiasm.
