Natural Light

We noted earlier that the “natural light” is not the light of reason but the light of all things. What is here called “spiritual light” does not mean the light of the “soul” or the “spirit” in the ordinary sense of those words. It is rather a “samādhi of the Storehouse of the Great Light” out of which the light of all things (namely, the being itself of all things) is coming to our self in itself is the original and most elemental “middle,” we are pointing to nothing other than just this.
