radiance

wild dark sunsetWe can see nothing on this planet without the sun’s radiance. The sun announces itself* first, before seeing happens–whether we notice that or not. It is the same with consciousness–no thought or object or perception can arise without the radiance of consciousness preceding them.

Today, we spent the day with Rupert Spira. He gave a short talk as an introduction to those who have not been with him before, and then answered questions with endless patience for the other four-and-a-half hours. His talk, his answers, his presence with each person shone with the radiance that pours through him with seeming unending abundance. He just arrived from England, so must be experiencing some jet-lag. There was no sign of it at all…
