The essence of light

A boy and an awakened master were walking in a garden one morning.
“Master,” said the boy “since you have realised the Self, when you speak, is it God speaking?”.

The old master smiled. Then he said “look how nearly all of these lilies are in the shade. They are like most people, in the deep shadows cast by the ego.
But notice one or two of the lilies are in direct sunlight. See how bright they are! And how vibrant the colours! Although still a lily, they reveal more of the essence of light.”
