14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Did you know that you can see light in your body? This is what the Bible means when it says that Christ will return to Earth.
It’s very explicit about that. What it kinda keeps hidden is that you are the Earth. You are ground zero!
In this video, we’re going to talk about how you can open up and receive the Light of Christ, not just understanding—but REAL LIGHT!
So, if you’re looking for ways to make God real in your life, you’re in the right place.
In Matthew, chapter 5, Jesus gives us three clues to how we can fill our body with light. Not understanding, but light. Real light.
First, he tells us that we are the light of the world and that a city on a hill cannot be hid.
This tells us that the world needs light and that we are the source of that light. (“We” meaning humanity as a whole. But humanity is made up of individuals—you and me. We have to choose to find the Light of Christ. Each ONE of us.)
And light is the life-energy made visible, right? So, we are the life of the world.
If you’re into feng shui, you know that you never build a house on top of a hill but rather halfway down. Otherwise, you draw too much attention to your home. You only build on top of a hill if you want people to find you.
And he makes it clear that everyone is going to know you’re carrying the light, because people are drawn to people who shine, people who are vibrant, people who are ALIVE.
Second, he says that we’re like a candle and that no one hides a candle under a basket. We put candles on top of candlesticks so that they light up the room and everyone can see.
And look, so far we’re talking in terms of elevation, right? On a hill, on a candlestick.
Hills, or mountains, symbolize heightened awareness. And candlesticks, like pillars and staffs, represent our spine and the kundalini.
Remember, these symbols were around WAY before Jesus’ time, but he knew what they meant. That’s why he used them.
And third, Jesus tells us to let our light shine so that people can see it.
Why? Is it so we can be popular? NO. We shine so that GOD can be popular.
We want to present ourselves to the word in such a way that people will see us and have hope.
We do it so that they can see that LIFE IS GOOD and that it’s worth living, in spite of how hard it is sometimes.
That’s the “good news”—if you open up to the power of the life-energy in you and you let it shine into all aspects of your life, everything, no matter how difficult, is suddenly worth the effort.
That’s what the word “gospel” means—life is good! Sure, it hurts, but it’s worth it.
When we live our lives as though they are brimming with possibility, it keeps us moving forward.
Instead of running away from everything, we seek out new experiences, better relationships, more meaningful vocations, and a heartfelt desire to cooperate, not fight.
So, even if you don’t believe in God or Jesus Christ, this is still the best philosophy in town. It WORKS! It makes life infinitely better.
