THE FLAME THAT NEVER DIES
Monday July 29, 2013
Do you know that your body—all the cells of your heart, your lungs, your liver, your brain, your skin, everything—changes in its entirety over 10 years? Yes, everything!
Now you may wonder that if this is so, how is it that we still remember where we were born, who we were born to, and what transpired in our life? Where is that place inside of our being that allows this to happen?
The reason that we remember these things—the reason we are a part of our own life’s picture—is because the root source of our being does not exist within our physical body. It can’t. And the proof is that our body changes almost completely over time, as we pointed out above. The body that we have today is not the one we had 10 years ago or the one we will have 10 years from now.
We can compare ourselves to a candle. What is it that allows the candle to burn and function as it should? Is it the wax? No. It’s the flame—the light—of the candle. With us, it’s our internal soul—the Light that we draw into our life—that moves us forward.
