Full, Half Full or Empty?

"Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." (Hebrews 11: 3)
You look in your purse and see there's not much cash in there, in fact it looks empty. But is your purse really empty?

You look in your fridge and see the shelves are empty suggesting you have no food. But is your fridge really empty?

When something appears to be empty is this always the case? Are things what they appear? Can you rely on your senses? Is the glass half full, half empty, empty or always full?

Let's take the example of the empty shelves in the fridge. If you see the shelves as empty it is empty and will remain so. You see everything exists as ideas but you might not necessarily know they are present if you expect to perceive them through your senses. You have to see them first in their true spirit forms. Some might see the ideas as particles of light. So you have to see, hear, feel, whatever you feel you lack as light first before it can appear in form.

That doesn't mean it has to necessarily take time for ideas as light to become light form that is discernible by the senses. It could be instant. However, if you are only used to what you can sense which appears to the senses as empty space, this is what registers in your inner state. In other words, when you look in your fridge and think that your fridge is empty and know only emptiness, you're actually saying that the particles of light are empty space, thus you end up having more empty space in your fridge and your purse.

Or you could open your fridge and see the fridge filled with food though in your inner vision you might perceive only light. And then you look forward to light becoming visible that is discernible by the senses.

To sum up, you must see within first before you can experience that seeing without. For what is within already exists without, it's a matter of allowing it to appear through trusting in what is.

Love and Light,
