V: 16

Chapter 5, Verse 16

"When the Light
Of the revealed Self
Drives out the darkness,
Then the Light of wisdom
Shines like the mid-day Sun."

Father Bede Griffiths:

"With this wisdom, we understand the real meaning of the work we are doing. It is coming from God, and as we surrender it to God, we shine with the Light of God within."

Eckhart Tolle:

"Surrender is the inner transition from resistance to acceptance, from 'no' to 'yes.' The habitual and reactive 'no' strengthens the ego. Your form identity, the ego, cannot survive surrender. The 'yes' to what is reveals a dimension of depth within you that is dependent neither on external conditions nor on the internal conditions of constantly fluctuating thoughts and emotions.

On the surface, you may still be happy when it's sunny and not so happy when it's rainy. You may be happy at winning a million dollars and unhappy at losing your possessions. Neither happiness nor unhappiness, however, will reach deeply anymore. They are ripples on the surface of your Being. The background peace within you remains undisturbed, regardless of the nature of fluctuating conditions."
