When you look at the world, you see God because God is and must be all and everything. Nothing can be apart from God. The light by which you see the world is also God. That light is in you, but you are not the source of it. Regardless of whether you recognize this light or not, it will continue to shine for all of your life. You are the awareness which perceives all that the light illuminates. This awareness is the very core and basis of your continual sense of Being. Think back to when you were a small child, and feel in you that sense of Being. You will realize that, although every single thing in you has since changed in every conceivable way, that Sense of Being, that “I am”, has never changed. Not one iota. That which is eternal never changes.
