Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.
Inspired by Shelley’s elegy “Adonais,” the workshop describes an advanced teacher of God as “a light of laughing flowers.” This evocative phrase reflects how those well along the spiritual path reflect the light of innocence that is within everyone’s mind (not body). It calls forth this light in all they meet, greeting them with the gentle laughter that reminds the mind that its dream of desolation has no effect upon reality, and therefore need not be met with seriousness. Thus does the gentle truth correct the mind’s illusions, freeing Heaven’s light to shine forth to bless the world as it blesses ourselves.
There is a light in you which cannot die; whose presence is so holy that the world is sanctified because of you.
