From light comes love…

Without being realized by many people, there’s mass hypnotics everywhere. People are being hypnotized by news, politics, social medias, without knowing where life will grow. It is similar to long and mass sleep. Before being visited by danger, let’s learn to awake. First of all, learn to take a healthy distance from the mass hypnotics. When you need social medias for example, use it. When you don’t need it, leave it. Secondly, the long sleep society keep thinking that life is a journey to certain destination. It’s true but incomplete. The complete one, you’re both traveller and destination. Success is both result and process.

Thirdly, since life is dark everywhere, what you truely need is light. The good news, light can be accessed by practicing love. To make the idea more practical, light does not come by removing the negative, but by sinthesizing the positive and the negative. That’s why to live fully and totally will help much in this case. In the language of meditation, be a watcher. Let’s the watcher becomes stronger and stronger from day to day. As a result, mind is no longer become the dominant power within. As soon as mind is no longer dominant, heart begin to speak and guide you. And one thing for sure, heart will guide you to the direction of light and love. To facilitate spititual friends to understand the connection between light and love, now let’s contemplate together.

Touching the deepest aspect of life…

Light and love, two powerful and evocative forces, share profound symbolic and experiential connections. Both are essential to human existence, transcending physical and emotional realms, and serving as metaphors for understanding the deepest aspects of life.

Light is fundamental to life on Earth. It enables vision, nourishes plants through photosynthesis, and regulates our circadian rhythms. Similarly, love is essential for emotional well-being, fostering connections, compassion, and a sense of belonging. Just as light illuminates the world, love illuminates the human spirit, providing warmth and comfort in times of darkness.

It’s a beacon in the darkness…

Symbolically, light often represents purity, clarity, and hope. It is a beacon in the darkness, guiding and inspiring. Love, too, embodies these qualities. It offers clarity in confusion, purity of intent, and hope amidst despair. The phrase “light of my life” encapsulates this connection, suggesting that a loved one brings brightness and joy, dispelling the shadows of loneliness and sorrow.

In many spiritual and religious traditions, light is a manifestation of divine presence. For instance, in Christianity, Jesus is referred to as the “light of the world,” bringing spiritual enlightenment and salvation. In Buddhism, love is the first aspect of Brahma Vihara (home of the holy). In Sufism, love is one of God’s name. Similarly, love is viewed as a divine gift, a reflection of God’s grace and an expression of the sacred. This intertwining of light and love underscores their roles as divine forces that nurture and sustain life.

Guiding steps…

Repeating the previous message, learn to live fully and totally. Say goodbye to the greediness of always choosing pleasure above pain, positive above negative. Remember to be a watcher. As simple as beach watching the waves, space watching the wind, sky witnessing the clouds. Until one day there’s synthesis of negative-positive inside which give birth to light and love. In this stage, you begin to awake from the long sleep. You’re no longer become the object of mass hypnotics like news, politics and social medias. Your body, mind and spirit are now become your true home.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
