If I go out to my garden and plant a tiny tomato seed, that seed, if I take care of it and protect it, will grow into a huge plant that will produce abundant fruit. It will become something very different than that mere tiny seed that I started with. It’s the same with self-discovery and the inner life: just like that tomato seed changed, so can the way you experience the world around you. Murray Oxman wonderfully introduces this something else…


Attract the Light

(from “How to Tune Up Your Life” by Murray Oxman)

Latent inside every human being is something that one never hears about in ordinary circumstances. This certain something is not part of this physical world but in fact a part of a higher world–the world of infinite space. When nurtured properly this small part can grow and then attract the Light that shines throughout the universe to shine on one’s inner-world. Then one starts to see oneself and the world in a bright, new, different way.

    What a beautiful thing to read today! I’m so grateful for this source of information that I can’t get anywhere else. It keeps me encouraged and wanting more out of my life. I love how Murray states that the inner Light within you can attract the Light of the Universe. We really are part of the Whole!

    What a beautiful reminder of how incredible this Creation is!! The Universe as a Whole, and the microcosm that is humanity, Imagine that, each one of us, if we so desire, can allow the ignition of a fire within, so bright and illuminating that we are inseparable from the Sun, or from the Creator of All and Everything! So heavenly gracious can this Life be!!

    “but in fact a part of a higher world–the world of infinite space.” This portion of Murray’s paragraph means so much once a person starts to see how confining a ‘thought life’ is… worry, anxiety, and fear ( just to name a few) of the tormenting mess that goes on inside a person daily awakens a very small part that wants to be free. It’s like being confined to a closed up space where there is very little air and then coming out into a breezy sunshiny day. What a difference. We just simply have very bad habits of staying in places inside of ourselves that are not good for our spirits. We can break out anytime we realize where we are at inwardly. You and I have unseen powers that we don’t realize we have!

    ‘attract the Light that shines throughout the universe to shine on one’s inner-world’ I never even considered I had an inner world before I found these ideas. What a nice thing the Light can shine in that world if I let it.

    Our life life will play out good or bad depending on the spiritual laws we follow or ignore.
