“Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.” (I Thessalonians 5: 5-6)
Don’t become a sleeper, full of apathy or timidity or doubt. We must remain engaged in good, awake and conscientious, radiating with our natural light, not denying it or hiding it. We are born of God’s own qualities, and those are vital and alive with healing and with progress and with joy.
We have the Truth and we know that we do. That gives us a special calling and the ability to carry it out. Others may find it easier to complain and accuse, to wallow and to hibernate, to sleep and extend the dream of a life based on the darkness and limits of matter. But, we must stay awake, basking in our own light which is God’s light reflected. We must be alert to the subtle call to passive ignoring and ignorance, and wake the world to this as well.
Know your heritage. You are not a dark and dreary and miserable mortal, doomed to mistakes and loss and disappointment. You are God’s own son and daughter! You are His ideal and you are here with a purpose! Be sober—unaffected by the distractions and dulling that the world’s thought and allurements would propose. Have a clear purpose and a clear-headed joy that each day helps beckon all to see the dawn, the new day that God Himself, divine Love, has made!
