I want to relate this Power of Allowing to what it means to be a Lightworker. Let me give you a working definition of a Lightworker so we can explore this practice together. My definition of what it means to be a Lightworker is:-
A Lightworker is an individual who allows the Light to work through them.
If you are new to expressing the radiance you are, I recommend that you move from being a worker to becoming an allower.
This is not just my recommendation. I invite you to do this from the wisdom teaching of one of the world’s greatest ever Lightworkers–Light Allower–Christ Jesus who declared:-
I can of myself do nothing—John 5:30
Any true Lightworker is allowing the Light to work through them. As Albert Schweitzer said, “My job is to amuse the patient long enough to allow the Divine healing to take place.”
The key to learning to be a Lightworker is not in work but in allowing.
Allowing is an art. It requires.
- Patience and.
What is a Lightworker
No one is a Lightworker. Being a Lightworker is like the popular teaching called the Law of Attraction.
As they teach this Law of Attraction it is not at all attractive. It suggests that your work is to tell the Universe—the Light of Creation—how it is to shine through you.
No. You as a Light Allower are to be available to how the Light created you to uniquely express through you.
A man who can do everything fully consciously becomes a luminous phenomenon. He is all light, and his entire life is full of fragrance and flowers. ~ Osho.
Your work is to cultivate the muscle of allowing. It is the essential spiritual process of deepening surrender.
The Light Comes Through You
Let me share some spiritual guidance that will allow you to be a true Lightworker. When I use the term Lightworker, I mean you do any work with the lightest of touches.
Best of all you allow the work to be done through you.
In this way you become aligned in the same way that the Master Jesus aligned himself with the Light—“By myself I do nothing.”
Are you prepared to become a non-doer and a universal nobody? These are the credentials of a Light worker.
The paradox to be KNOWN is this. Your becoming a non-doer and a nobody is the REAL SECRET. This is how you become truly prosperous, which is shining your light into the world.
Only this approach to real secret is not very popular with most people.
This is because you have to give up control. Be willing to stop dictating your wants so the desire of Creation can manifest through you.
Guidance from a Lightworker
To give you guidance in relation to unfolding the Light within you I share with you a poem by one of the best Light Allowers that ever graced this planet.
The Breeze at Dawn
The breeze at dawn
Has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and
Forth across the doorsill
Where the two worlds meet
The door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep
So let me unfold this invitation to awakening to the Light that you will then allow to work its magic through you.
Language of the Light
Here you have the language of the Light Allower.
This is the language of mystical poetry. It is a key way of communicating the mystery that you are a part of but never apart from.
The keywords and phrases in this poem, and there are many, include.
- Breeze—Listening to the Wind of Your Soul.
- Dawn—Awakening at Dawn.
- Secrets—The Secret of Secrets.
- Sleep—The Sleeping Beauty Within.
- Asking for what you really want.
- Back and forth – The Ordinary and the Extra Ordinary.
- Doorsill—Crossing the Threshold.
- Two worlds—Sacred Unity.
- Door—Entering the Temple of Silence.
- Round and Open—Experiencing Wholeness.
This is a premier poem related to the experience of spiritual awakening and what follows this experience.
I list these words and phrases in Part I and Part II because I intend to make this an extensive reflection on what it requires to be a Lightworker.
The reason is that I want to include material that is video and audio and if there is too much of this in one article, then for some the page would take forever to load.
I hope this won’t detract from your enjoyment of this exploration that is an invitation to what Hafiz refers to as.
…the magnificence of the Light of your own Being—Hafiz of Shiraz.
The Lightworker Journey
The 1st thing to recognize is that to be a Light Allower you must have at least once been through the door where the two worlds meet.
This not only makes you a Light Allower but also a mystic. I define a mystic as any individual who has had a direct encounter with the Divine.
Here I am not speaking about some high at a weekend mission where you declare yourself to be saved.
If you haven’t been across the doorsill, and you will KNOW you have, then you are claiming a direct experience of the Light that you have not had.
This is not popular news. It is difficult to hear. The ego, the personal sense of the separate self wants to claim that it is a Lightworker.
This crossing of the two worlds gives you the only real foundation to claim a connection to the Light.
This experience will make you humble. You, like the Master Jesus will recognize that you are merely a channel for the Grace of Love’s forever becoming.
Your purpose becomes that of a servant. Your purpose is to serve Love’s purpose. You recognize that ultimately you are not in control.
You allow Love’s purpose to breeze through you. You become a listener to the wind of your soul.
The Dawning of the Light
The dawn is not to be taken literally. It isn’t referencing the early morning although the early morning is a time of silence and a time when secrets arise within.
The dawn metaphorically symbolizes the arising of the Light within you.
One of the best descriptions of such arising is by the American mystic Joel Goldsmith writing in the Infinite Way.
One day something happens. Consciousness expands and sees that which before was invisible. One feels a flow of warmth; a Presence never before known becomes tangible, very real. This often is a fleeting experience.
One may not even be certain, it occurred. It lingers in memory, but more as a dream than an actuality until it happens again, and this time more clearly and more definite, and perhaps lasting longer. Gradually, there dawns in consciousness the realization of a Presence always present.
This Presence may be felt as if lurking in the background of one’s consciousness.
At times it becomes a very commanding Presence domination the scene or experience of the moment.
This is the beginning of spiritual awakening as a process and not as a one-off revelation. You as the Lightworker go to the gym each dawn to work the muscle of inviting and allowing of Presence.
You recognize that you are not who you think you are. You are becoming more attuned to the Light Presence that you truly are.
A Lightworker in the genuine sense of the word is the one who has learned to use the muscles of connection and surrender. This is the Lightworkers workout.
They have worked at opening the door that separates them from the Light.
This is the work that you can do and must do to live your one wild and precious life in service to Love’s Purpose.
The Secrets of Secrets
Rumi is referring to the Secret of Secrets that is inside you. This is The REAL Secret Law of Attraction, but not the way it is popularly understood.
It is you allowing that which is truly attractive. What is truly attractive is to manifest Love’s Purpose uniquely.
The Secret is that which is unknown but which can be KNOWN through you.
The Secret is forever NEW. It comes out of the emptiness that is forever full. It comes out of the Infinite that creates the finite. It comes out of the Timeless into time.
You don’t co-create from the Secret.
Co-creation happens through you. Again the Master Jesus, “I by myself do nothing.” You allow yourself to be a happening out of NO-THING.
There are no vision boards. There are no affirmations. Creation affirms through you the vision it always had for you as you.
Don’t Go Back to Sleep
Rumi is not referring to having some extra shut eye.
He is referring to the sleep that is the sense of the separate personal self. This separate sense of self is the primary cause of most unnecessary suffering.
This is the sleep that you are to awaken from.
You are asleep to the awareness of your soul. Your soul is the Sleeping Beauty inside you.
You marry your connection to your soul purpose (Sleeping Beauty) and like all delightful fairy tales live happily ever after.
This is not the happily ever after of the personality. There is no happily ever after for those who live the sleep of the persona (mask).
Your soul is your connection to the Light. You are like a sunbeam emanating from the Long Time Sun (The Incredible String Band).
If you have no soul connection, then you are simply a person working as someone claiming a connection to the Light which you are asleep to.
Debbie Ford warns about this disconnect in her classic book The Darkside of the Lightchasers—Reclaiming you Power, Creativity, Brilliance and Dreams.
This is instructive reading, if not popular reading, for those who would be Lightworkers.
