Stephen Gill Feature 94 is from the interview with Professor Anuradha Sharma about pains, peace and love. A candle is meant to be placed on the table to lighten every corner. Several good people have preached and shown this path. I admire these good people from the bottom of my heart.
Realization is the destination and destination is the stage of liberation from desire and desire is pain. The normal desire even for health leads one to organize a schedule for rest, diet and physical exercises. Physical exercise itself is painful, but the result is health that is liberation from sicknesses. A mother carries the baby of her desire. The birth of the baby is painful. The realization of the Flame is a state of liberation and the culmination of this liberation is bliss.
The realization of the Flame is also light and in the light one can see the hyacinths of wisdom which spring up fresh and green from the soil of love and peace. Realization is to know Truth and Truth is peace and peace is the realm of Divinity as it is wisely put also in the Hindu culture (Om shanti). Divinity is peace, and peace is the way, the truth and life. No one can enter this realm of the way, the truth and the life without peace. As per my studies, Christ fully qualifies to be the way, the truth and the life. It is because like God, Christ is love without any condition, and the peace that is beyond human understanding. Several good people have preached and shown this path and I admire these good people from the bottom of my heart. On the other hand, Christ is the path.
In other words. Christ is God’s candle. A candle is meant to be placed on the table to lighten every corner. Brutes put the candle under the table of the ugliness of their self-glory. In the darkness, they cannot see children, women, wives, friends, anyone. They flash their swords, killing everyone whosoever comes within the range of their swords to get an easy visa for their paradise. The darkness is the absence of light and light is to find the beauty of truth. Separation from the Flame caused by brutes is painful as it is for a lover who is separated from the beloved. This pain has been highlighted in parts seven and eight of my modern epic the Flame.
