In almost all faiths, God is referred to as "light."
What I have come to understand through my studies and experiences is that if we are energetic beings, then God too is an energetic being and an ultimate and eternal source of energy: a "light." Unlike us, the supreme soul is free of the knowledge of defects. The supreme energy that is this being of light is perfect and free from vice. This energy is the same as you and I: It is perfect, pure, loving, peaceful, joyous and wise. But again, only when I realize myself as a soul and accurately understand who God is can I begin to re-ignite the feeling of the soul's original true worth and perfection from deep within.
Communing with this energy in meditation and surrounding our consciousness with the warmth of that loving experience brings the soul to a remembrance of divine love, purity of intent, and because of its deep feeling negative experiences of the past are erased. Many of us are not aware of the benefits of meditation on the Supreme Source of pure love. It is this love that replaces broken or limited love. When we increase real, pure love, we increase self worth, balance, power, and truth inside the self. When I am in that state, a natural sense of worth and authenticity returns and a deep memory that "I am love" and "I am free" emerges. The way that can translate into the world is "No one is that powerful that they could make me stop being who I am, and that is love." When you are able to connect in meditation to God silently, your higher awareness returns. So, God in meditation becomes our trigger to remember who we are... OM SHANTI.
