Many people are familiar with the idea of Beings of Light or Spiritual Light as depicted in paintings—but did you know that you, too, are a being of light?
As Soul, a spiritual being, your truest, most essential self can be perceived as a star or a globe of light. You can think of this self as a light bulb which has accumulated some dust and dirt over many seasons. Spiritual exercises can begin to cleanse away some of this debris so that your light shines brighter in this world, both for yourself and others. You can also open yourself to a greater flow of Spirit through these exercises, increasing your 'wattage,' so to speak.
In Eckankar's Spiritual Experiences Guidebook, Harold Klemp, the spiritual leader of Eckankar, explains, "You are Soul, a divine spark of God on a journey homeward. Soul wants to experience more of the Voice of God, which can be heard as Sound or seen as Light" (p. 3).
Come to share your experiences with Spiritual Light and listen to those of others. Learn some new ways to experience yourself as Soul, and try a spiritual exercise or two.
Complimentary refreshments provided; no donation requested. Just come and enjoy!
