Women as Bearers of Light
It is mostly women who are known for their intuitive and sensitive natures, although I believe women and men with these characteristics will lead the way to a real spiritual awakening in our time. Through their patience, understanding and insight these spiritual teachers will help us to reveal the sacred light within us all.
Here is the story of a great discovery. Around the year 1910, astronomers on Mt. Wilson viewed the cosmos with an incredible 100 inch telescope. However, they were clueless as how to measure the distances between the stars and earth. (Our closest star is the sun.) At that time, women were not allowed in the conservatory, being considered distractions. Women were relegated to menial tasks and analyzing data. It was a woman, Harrietta Levitt, who discovered the Celestial Yardstick. Her job was to examine photographic plates at various times and look for stars that vary in brightness. She made the first great discovery: the time it takes to reach maximum brightness can be used to determine how far away the stars are from each other and the earth. Her discovery was the most fundamental yardstick in the universe. Now it is the measure by which all distances are determined.
I believe the celestial yardstick dwells within each of us. We may measure our own proverbial closeness or distance from each other (and God) by how much light (love) we emit and how brightly it shines outward. Within each of us is an “inner ruler” whereby we intuitively sense the measure of light we emanate. If you could determine the amount of light (love) you radiate outward, where would it measure on a 12 inch ruler?
To answer this question honestly, answer these questions first. How are you feeling about yourself? Are you happy? Are you living the life you desire? How are your relationships progressing in a positive way? Are they peaceful and loving?
If you could choose how much light to radiate at any given time, what would it be... 7 inches rather than 4, or 12 inches rather than 9? What if our light is always set at 12, but we don’t know it? Perhaps our inner light is always at maximum brightness, but we allow our mental state (fear, negativity – ego thoughts) to interfere and cast a shadow over it. What could you do to increase your light?
I have a theory about the “inner ruler.” The inner ruler plays a double role in our lives; the first as a measure of our brightness, and secondly as a sense of being influenced, guided or possibly even governed from within. Perhaps it’s an all-knowing, wise and comforting Guide/Angel/Holy Spirit directing our every thought and movement toward our highest good. On a scale of 1 to 12, where would you measure your relationship with Spirit? What could make it better?
As bearers of light we carry the torch for humanity. It is my prayer that we are able to run with it and champion a new world, a world where only the highest values exist. I pray that each man, woman and child awaken to their own beauty, magnitude and holiness. I pray that you personally will choose a better way of life by Living by Spirit. Thank you!
