Mammal Muse Thursday MAMMALS NEED LIGHT TO LIVE


Mammal Muse


Visible light--electromagnetic radiation visible to the human eye--is responsible for sight.

The term 'light' is also used in spiritual traditions (vision, enlightenment, darshan, Tabor Light). Bible commentators see the presence of light as a metaphor of truth, good and evil, knowledge and ignorance. In the first Chapter of the Bible, Elohim is described as creating light by fiat and seeing the light to be good. In Eastern religion, Diwali, festival of lights, celebrates the victory of light over darkness.

Sanskrit

ॐ असतोमा सद्गमय ।

तमसोमा ज्योतिर्गमय ।

मृत्योर्मामृतं गमय ।।

ॐ शान्ति शान्ति शान्तिः ।। – बृहदारण्यक

 

oṁ asato mā śad gamaya
tamaso mā jyotir gamaya
mṛtyor mā amṛtaṁ gamaya
oṁ śānti śānti śāntiḥ – bṛhadāraṇyaka

Lead Us From the Unreal To the Real,

Lead Us From Darkness To Light,
Lead Us From Death To Immortality,
Let There Be Peace Peace Peace.

in the Hebrew bible, Elohim refers to God. light creates such magnificence in everything it touches, doesn't it.
here in Texas, it's still wednesday.
