The Light Behind the Mind

There are two entities which comprise the whole Universe, the perceptible and the imperceptible. The perceptible is only a small part of the imperceptible, that which is unimaginable. These two entities are really one. It is not that they have split themselves into parts. They are like two aspects of the same coin.

At the base of everything, including all the powers of the mind, is Light. In metaphysics it is called Truth. It is not Light in the sense of the light of the sun and so on, but it is light in so far as it is self-luminous. Other lights borrow their light from the sun, and the sun and the light that derives from it, is destined to die, as astronomy tells us. The fundamental Light which underlies all, does not decrease, though aeons may pass, and in it there are no fluctuations. That Light is Consciousness and Awareness.
