The Lamp That Dispels Darkness
The moment of recognition of being vacant or preoccupied is the pure light of consciousness, the pure light of knowing. Acknowledging and resting in this clarity of pure light, darkness of not knowing is dispelled, and self-obsession, fears and hopes are vanquished.
It is here when we can either, through habit, return into the darkness of fantasy, or realise that this pure light of consciousness is what we are.
There is no true happiness in self-obsession.
There is no self-obsession in the clarity of pure light.
Even a moment of light
is a relief from suffering.
