THE HARVEST OF LIGHT

When our desire for Truth is supreme and we turn steadfastly away from the material, a new heaven and a new earth is revealed to us as "in the beginning;" and to every such honest seeker God says, "Let there be light," and there is light. As with uncertain footsteps we follow the pale beam, we find that this first feeble effort is rewarded, and we face the next problem with increased courage because of the understanding gained from the former experience.

Thus we learn, as did the psalmist, that "light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart;" and according as we have obeyed the heavenly vision is our enlightenment and gladness of heart. The word of God takes on new meaning, the sayings which before seemed dark and incomprehensible are now illumined with the new understanding that God is Love, and we begin to be glad at heart as we enter into our inheritance as children of the light. This light shines through all the ordinary intercourse of daily life, our experiences and environment, through the word and works of God, the writings of our revered Leader, and the words written and spoken by those who like ourselves "follow the star." As the events of each day develop, and we follow the light (the highest thought that comes to us in regard to each circumstance), light is sown, and there is a harvest of radiance that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
