" 'Let there be light,' is the transcendent creative light
that is present as the basic energy of everything that exists.
... It is that light that is the source of the spiritual nature
of our being. It is that light that dwells in us
as our inmost spiritual nature and
... shows us exactly who we are and the true state
of our relationship with God....
The journey into the light,
which is synonymous with the true self
... is to make ourselves aware of the height,
length, breadth, and depth of the love of Christ
in taking on our human nature."
-- Thomas Keating in Consenting to God As God Is
