Definitions 'program' what we often take to be our mind. Operating out-from them and within the 'reality' they result, is the nature of our human experience.
But mind is not limited by its 'limitations' for it is by nature edgeless and timeless apart from the act of focussing and identification within idea.
“What you give out is what you get back”. Ingenuity can contrive illusion whereby one seems to get something different and thereby give differently than consciousness actually is.
That is another way of saying we can accept a definition or image of self that is false, limiting and conflicts with the true.
By the word that proceedeth from our own mouth (mind) are we corrupted.
Such are definitions or self-beliefs that are not true of us - and which actively cost the appreciation and sharing of what is true of us, from our split off mind that fears truth will damn it or annihilate it. But it is the split which is undone or healed and a wholeness of aligned being that then replaces a war within oneself.
To know thy purpose is to be like God. Hidden or secret agenda is unlike love. Light is also a term for awareness and is the First awareness of which all else is. This Light is not merely energy, but feeling or knowing, and is thus our true Soul Nature in Spiritual Expression. That darkness of forgetting operates our mind is not our sin, but our call to awaken. Sin is the choice to prefer illusion of private or secret agenda to a true and open relationship. But such choice is ITSELF a fruit of error and not a true result - for it is only as true as you give your truth to it - now and now and now.
When we accept the thinking that we of ourselves know - we fall under the spell of a confusion of Consciousness within the egocentricity of our personality structure - until we notice that has been operating. Noticing is always the breakthrough of presence or awareness. Welcoming and valuing awareness appreciates or grows it in our lives. Using it to feed a guilt-script densifies and locks in the spell of an isolated loveless existence. But is IS a choice. reclaiming it as a choice allows a different choice. A choiceless choice extends through the acceptance of our freedom to be - for joy is not a choose-between so much as a resonance of relevance to the felt quality of light within.
