Never think that darkness can hide the sun, for its time is always fleeting. The light of the inner sun within all beings cannot be daunted for long. It remains a constant, ever shining behind the clouds. The light of the inner Self cannot be put out. It is a flame eternal, immortal. Even death itself must give way to this immortal flame. No force is strong enough to destroy it.
The immortal flame of unconditioned love burns bright eternally. It is only when the shadows and the clouds appear to overcast it that you think that it has been diminished, but it remains ever bright and brilliant. The transitory movements of clouds and shadows fade away and again the brightness of the flame eternal is visible. The power of this flame, the intensity of this flame is such that nothing can stand against it. Life and death, like changing colors appear and fade. But this flame of the eternal Self remains constant. Your innermost Being is the flame, that eternal beacon. Guru, God and Self are one.
This flame of unconditioned love, of absolute truth, is brilliant beyond the comprehension of the mind. It is bright beyond the capacity to understand brightness. It is the truth of your own being and all other forces fade, dissolve, cannot stand before it. For it is the source of all that is. It is the very substance of everything that exists. It is the destiny of all creation. The flame eternal, is the birth, the source of life. It is the destruction, the dissolution of existence into itself. It is the fire that burns away darkness. It is the flame that heals all wounds.
It is the love that will never die, which bonds you deeply to those whom you love and holds you forever in that love. It is the love that manifests. It is the love that always has been, is, and always will be. It is eternal and unconditioned. It is the source of your soul. It is your soul. Let it unfold within you, wrap you in its truth, in its strength. Love is the strongest force that exists. Even death cannot destroy it. Even Yama, the God of death, must bow to this light, to this flame, to this force and recognize that its brilliance consumes everything. Love is the force that unites all beings.
Fear leads to anger, leads to violence, to self-protection and harm. It leads to the feeling of self and other. But ignorance cannot stand in the brilliance of this flame. Ignorance dissolves as the light shines forth. The clouds do not cover the sun for long. Both in your personal life and in the society today there are struggles, there are high points and there are difficulties. But this Light of the Self is the source, the ground of the human heart. It is a flame that cannot die and all that opposes it must perish.
Truth always wins in the end. Love always sustains in the end. So never lose hope. When it seems the darkest, when it appears there is no way out, that is when you let go. Surrender, not to fear, not to darkness, but to the brilliance of love and the power of truth. Let this carry you out of the shadows into the light both personally and collectively. Never be discouraged, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, look on the bright side and find the love that sustains you and shines even in the darkest hour. Have faith in the strength of the human heart, that in the end people make choices that sustain and maintain the welfare of all. Have faith in the strength of the human spirit. Have faith in the power of love to heal and to mend that which has been broken.
The phoenix rises from the ashes, the brilliance and the true spirit of the human heart is strongest when most tested. Believe in that spirit. Believe in the love that sustains and maintains. Believe in the honesty and truth that exists in the love of all beings, the love which flows from the eternal flame in the heart of all life. Cling to this. Never give up, never be discouraged. Surrender to love. Let the flame eternal be a brilliant beacon within you, to shine forth in the world as a light for others, so that they too can remember the light. For this light of Love is the reality of life.
