The light switch by the door in the off position.
Time to turn the switch on.

The lamp in the center of the ceiling uses power
through the switch to illuminate the room.

Everything in the room is surrounded by the lamp light
except the thing that energizes the lamp.

No lamp is capable of illuminating itself
even though it brings light to everything else around it.

Light allows us to see the varied things and people in the room
if we have scientifically capable eyes.

No matter how capable, we cannot see that one thing
which allows us to care about the objects and people in the room.

Our hearts teach us to care and love,
and yet material science cannot prove that love exists.

Even though something cannot be seen
or cannot be proven scientifically
does not mean that it is not there.

Consciousness is power for our personality
to bring light and love into this world.

You are a guru if darkness is dispelled
by your light.

In Reality unreal things can exist and be imagined.
Even without scientific proof, so also light and love.
