Exploring the God Within
It is said that an inner light exists within ourselves that presently it may be dim, but nevertheless exists. If we achieve harmony within this light will become brighter, and we will gain freedom from the illusions and the turmoil of earthly life. Various names have been given to this light. It has been called higher-self, divine spark, Christ within, inner god and Ātman. Different explanations have been given to these terms, however, they all seem to agree, in one way or another, that this inner-light, this divine light, our inner god has no shape or form and that Its presence is inherent in the human being. We will explore themalong with the view concerning the inner-God mentioned in the first fragment of the Voice of the Silence:
“Before thou set’st thy foot upon the ladder’s upper rung ….. thou hast to hear the voice of thy inner God, in seven manners.”
In our exploration will shall have the help of HPB’s works, Ravi Ravindra, the Bible, Karen Armstrong, and others.
