Why is focusing on the light within you so powerful for removing negative thoughts? Because the light is what some call God--the infinite, omniscient, omnipresent energy that is in everything--living being, inanimate objects, and conscious thought, which is the power to create. The more you approach the center of God’s thought system, the clearer and stronger the light becomes. It expands right thinking and shows darkness to be the imaginings of the ego. The more one lives in ego-based thought, the darker and more obscure the path of joy becomes. As a result more suffering will be encountered. As the light becomes clearer, you automatically understand what you need to do to change your situation.
No one can be beyond the limitless God. Therefore there are no saved/unsaved, believers/unbelievers, because God or Christ consciousness is everywhere in this or any other universe. Otherwise, He would be limited. Can you exclude yourself from the Universe or God? Then, how can one be “lost” as some religions teach? We are lost when we see ourselves separate from God/infinite source/universe or whatever you choose to call this conscious life force. Do you really believe that part of God can be missing or damned to hell? Hell is what we create in our thoughts; it is individualized for each of us as we live in our own world that we have created with our beliefs, attitudes, thoughts, and actions. Heaven can also be created by choosing to see yourself as one with God and others. We are one in spirit.
