    I allow the light that lives in me to teach me in the midst of my situations.

    When I allow the light to teach me, the light I know and call my best friend feeds my spirit.

    I have a relationship with the light that lives in me, a personal relationship with the light, which knows me so deeply and with whom I can communicate without worrying about how to explain because the light already understands.

    I can rest in the light because the light is my home.

    I don't always understand the songs I listen to, but I like how people connect when singing this song. Can you relate? Also, can you share what your thoughts are about this song? I enjoy listening to music and drinking from the light within my spirit.

    It was a beautiful song. And from your post it sounds like you have a wonderful gift. My only question is: what are you going to do with it?

    The song sang about Maya Maya being a trickster? What are the lies and delusions that deceive no more because of being illumined by the truth?

    The man in the beginning of the video spoke of being free from it.

    All I can think of is that nobody likes being deceived, and the truth frees one from that.

    So perhaps the song can be understood in one's own light that they have inside to guide their way. Each situation is a lesson having the light.

    I don't know, but it is interesting.

    Exactly that

    Great mantra-like song, connecting me instantly with the light within

    Thank you so much for sharing, really a wonderful song with an amazing impact

    @stvdv
    • I like how you acknowledge that we can be ourselves as well. Because I reason spiritually in relationship with light as friends
    • I've seen the light in people radiate outward before, so I assumed it was Divine who lives within us all.
    • However I learn from @dybmh some Jewish extra that's going on, the so called light is vessel Shekinah Shechinah to Devine and yet, here I was assuming light is the actual Devine - oddly I can be wrong and still have a relationship with Devine and remain not smart. I notice this.
    • I'm going to make this known. My smartness came from people who's skilled in their religions. I feel more smarter claiming there's a vessel but still it doesn't change the situation with me and light, a relationship me being myself and it's ok to be self, as I am. I don't have to seek approval, because I'm accepted already. That's true friendship and deep understandings of me from Devine. I borrow words as I learn too.
    • However I do enjoy learning though too. Maybe I'm making no sense here - is this to confusing to read.
    • Keep in mind, I notice as I have a relationship with Devine or light in me, I notice I don't get smarter. So all my so called smarts, is me learning from others.
    • Example I never thought of that ever, a vessel from Devine and that's the light, as if extras happening.
    • I never thought of this as a gift. I thought of light in me as my best friend who I can go to and communicate with and drink from. What am I doing with, no goals really. I don't really plan on doing anything at all.
    • I like listening to music and typing like I am now. I think that's all the further I want to go when it comes to communicating spirituality with people is type and listen to music. Everyone can drink from light.
    • Here: you ask me what am I going to do with., how about in the midst of situations, in the midst of thoughts and emotions allow unconditional love or light or shechina, or devine to teach you., how to allow more from light to drink from light - burn fire light drinking from burn fire light, burn fire feed your spirit heart. I'm using your words that I learn from you. (Shechina, vessel, allow Devine to teach you how to drink from light burn fire so Devine feeds your spirit heart burn fire)
    • I think I rather others can drink from light too. Then no goals I can continue, due to let others go to Devine themselves. I'm not needed and I like that. I don't want any goals.
    • I'm extremely good at making lots of messes then I give the messes to light. That's my expertise is making messes. I enjoy learning other religions and echo that. But then all I am is echo other peoples smarts.
    • I might be getting off topic from song but that's ok, cause we can bring this back to song., but what I'm seeking to say is I don't want any goals., however because you asked, how about you go to Devine yourself just as you are in the midst of situations, so multi task ok, so in the midst of your situations, in the midst of your thinking, in the midst of your beliefs, in the midst of your emotions, allow Devine teach you, how you can drink from Devine fire burn light and Devine feed your spirit heart fire burn light
    • If there's blockage then in the midst of blockage allow Devine teach you in the midst of that blockage and actually for me that's so interesting because Devine teaches me about what's going on why I block, and (I don't know words) but then a mix happens block and allow and eventually as Devine teaches then allow becomes more and block becomes less
    • So I rather pass on this and let others drink from light., I rather others go directly to Devine themselves. I'm not really needed then. I like not doing anything about this. I like that it's ok for me not do anything about this.

    It's OK. Don't worry about being smart. You're doing fine. Because schechina is a vessel, it doesn't quite match-up with what you are describing. It's too small. Its too limited. I like the words you chose, the description that comes naturally to you fits so much better. Light? Yes! Divine? Yes! Schechina? Vessel? Not so much.
    Yes! This is a great way to use your gifts. Keep sharing your experiences. Where you see light, tell us about it. When you discover blockages, clear them out. Share what works, and how it works for you.

    And when you hear a song that lights you up, chances are it will light up others as well. :) Keep sharing; it's great.

    @River Sea

    All this talk about "the light" makes me think you are a Quaker. Are you a Quaker? They often discuss about the 'light' (or divinity) in each individual.

    No, I'm not a Quaker.
    Can you tell me more about Quakers and the light in each individual that Quakers know about?

    Thank you for sharing the video; I'm curious if Quakers can relate to feeding from light and feeling "burning" in their spirit hearts. Can you relate?

    I'm not quite as spiritual as the Quakers. I identify spirituality like that as a type of emotion people feel. In that sense I am very spiritual, I'm even bipolar so I do experience a lot of emotions, but I identify the light within and Quaker spirituality with a sense of awe in the environment one is in. Going outside and experiencing Earth for what it is gives me a deep sense of emotional connection to it. I am both inspired by nature and what we've done as a result of it. Walking around a tall building gives me the same sense of awe that I get from walking around a tall tree. Hence I'm both pantheist and syntheist at the same time.
