When we are born into physical existence and come through the forgetting circle, we must understand that we are separated from the “Great Light”. When you wake up and remember who you are, you turn around and choose to go back towards the light.
At any moment you can know the light, the Everything, the great light at the center of all things. The moment of discovery of the inner light is your truth. Then, depending on where on the circle you are, at that point of discovery, you then begin to move back on your path toward the light.
