You Are The Light of the World
When you find yourself beset in darkness
When all the light has gone from your mind
And you seem to be living your personal hell
There is something you can do
To end your suffering
This holy instant.
You have the power
To work miracles in this world.
Simply be still
And know that you are part of God.
You are a holy instrument
Of power and grace
Desgined to undo what is dark
And bring it to the Light.
Thus healing what causes you pain.
You are here to work miracles.
Miracles are simply
The decision to see truth
And look past what is false.
Only what is eternal is true
And all else outside of us is false.
Therefore our bodies are a false identity
And your power to work miracles
Lies in seeing what lies within them.
You have the power to bring peace to every mind
By deciding to change your mind
And see only Light instead of bodies.
This is possible
Because we are One in Truth
United in the same Light of Creation.
Only you can make this choice.
Do not forget why you are here
And what your only function is.
You came to transform the world
From a nightmare of death
To the living reality of Heaven.
Do you want to save nightmares
By repeating them over and over in your mind?
Or would you rather look at the cause of fear
And let it go forever?
Then do not let anyone
Hide behind the dark cover of a false identity.
No one here
Is a body.
Do not be fooled by the bodies you see
Or what seems to be said and done with them.
We are the light of the world.
We have come to forgive what we see
And bring peace to every mind
Through our forgiveness of what bodies
Have said and done.
Do not use any dark action
To hide your light behind it.
Use it as an opportunity to shine through
And fulfill what you have come here to do.
Let peace extend from your mind
And see things in the Light
As they truly are.
And in this stillness
The darkness will disappear
In the Light of your holiness.
