First, I remember that it doesn’t matter what the body is feeling or what the mind is thinking– I Am Love and Love is unfolding where I Am.  Then, I wait to feel this Love.  And because I’m now feeling Love, I’m no longer matching the energy of the moment.  I’m not generating a false or fake joy, but turning back toward the inner Light, the subtle Joy, the Love that IS.  And I keep feeling the Light, holding this Love, through the situation, through the anxiety, through the worry… until it’s seen that only the Light is real.  The eyes see the appearance but I’m no longer judging by the appearance.  I’m no longer fooled by it.  I’m seeing it… but I’m feeling Love at the same time.  And I know that Only Love is Here.  As you move through your dark nights, it’s important to remember that you aren’t seeking God. You aren’t seeking the Light.  You don’t want Freedom or happiness or Love.   YOU ARE THAT.  You want them because of the false perception that you think you are separate from That, from God.  Freedom is the essence of who you are.  Relax, recognize, and stay feeling this Truth, inside.  And this Truth becomes your outer circumstances. “He is a real man who does not let go his hold on the Self-state while he is attending to whatever problems come of their own accord and without desire.” – Ramana Maharshi, Padamalai pg. 250 “Self-knowledge, or knowledge of Truth is not had by resorting to teachers, scriptures, or good deeds.  It is attained only by means of enquiry inspired by those who have awareness of the inner Light.  One’s inner Light alone is the means, naught else. When this inner Light is kept alive, it is not affected by the darkness of inertia.  Whatever sorrows there may be that seem to be difficult to overcome are easily crossed over with the help of the boat of wisdom (the inner Light).  He who is devoid of this wisdom is bothered even by minor difficulties.  The effort and the energy that are directed by the people in worldly activities should first be directed in the gaining of this wisdom.  Wisdom or the inner Light is like the legendary precious stone which bestows on its owner whatever he wishes to have.” – The Yoga Vasistha Rhonda Ross’ poem mentioned in this episode.
