"Has the light done you any injury?"

H.C.Love  breakthrough moment

Has the light done you any injury?

Does the light ever take you away?

Is it always the same light?

 - Guillevic/ Levertov, excerpt Enquetes

"The outer being is a means of expression only, not one's self. One must not identify with it, for what it expresses is a personality formed by the old ignorant nature. If not identified one can change it so as to express the true inner personality of the light." - Sri Aurobindo, The Integral Yoga

Light Breaks through...  a dawning of awareness of this inner self - not what you expect... so easy to go back to the old ways... so hard to stay with what moves you into the unknown the unexplored aspects of true light of self. The roles you have played no longer apply here, as you grapple with this you become more of who you were meant to be and yes this can be painful to the ego

that cherishes the false self, and has a fear of whats unfamiliar.

Does the light ever take you away?

"Lost in the light supernal am I and on that light I turn my back ... "  December's seed thought

The sadhana of this yoga does not proceed through any set mental teaching or prescribed forms of meditation... but by aspiration, by a self-concentration inwards or upwards, by self-opening to an influence, to the Divine power above us and its workings, to the Divine presence in the heart...It is only by faith, aspiration and surrender that this self -opening can come. - Sri Aurobindo

Is it always the same light? 

H.C.Love  speaks of sky, air, light.

"A certain day became a presence to me;
there it was, confronting me--a sky, air, light:
a being. And before it started to descend
from the height of noon, it leaned over
and struck my shoulder as if with
the flat of a sword, granting me
honor and a task. The day's blow
rang out, metallic--or it was I, a bell awakened,
and what I heard was my whole self
saying and singing what it knew: I can."

Denise Levertov

When one enters the true (yogic) consciousness then you see that everything can be done, even if at present only a slight beginning has been made; but a beginning is enough, since the force, the power are there. It is not really on the capacity of the outer nature that success depends, (for the outer nature all self-exceeding seems impossibly difficult,) but on the inner being and to the inner being all is possible. One has only to get into contact with the inner being and change the outer view and consciousness from the inner; that is the work of the sadhana and is sure to come with sincerity, aspiration and patience.  - Sri Aurobindo, The Integral Yoga
