You're dead on when it comes to the translation, and surface meaning. Which should be obvious since you took the time to translate it (I am
That being said, still, well done. There are diverse levels to the meaning and application of the mantra, but, those come with time. The more
disciplined and focused you can become, the more meanings unfold, and are revealed by the mantra.
This "living mantra" stance is why I consider the one who passed it down to me to have been truly awakened to a higher state of consciousness. It's
not any old group of words, the more you think you're advancing in your life, the more the mantra can mean to you. It's a "living mantra".

Had you actually learned, and truly pondered upon my mantra, you would have seen how your own teachings, on the surface, coincide with it.
Unfortunately, you did not. It took the insights of another user to enlighten you. In my eyes, someone like bandaidctrl is a more enlightened being
It is a shame you have already stated before this that my mantra, so similar to your teachings, is "not of the light". This must of course mean that
your own teachings are "not of the light".

i translated a small portion of it, something about "enlightenment from within" which is a concept i've learned within my own spiritual studies.
you are right, it is a living mantra because we conscious divine being are constantly evolving. every second we're alive we change a little more,
every breath we take we evolve a little more. it's more than finding the spark within yourself, it's about ACCEPTING that "spark" and allowing it
to take it's course within you...
there is a practice within a book series i love to read (the wheel of time by robert jordan), in BRIEF, there are 2 foundations of magic within this
world, saidin (male) saidar (female) they call it "the one power" and together, there is an even greater power called "the true source" anywho, in
order for a woman who is capable of channeling saidar, to actually wield first they must surrender entirely to it, going with the flow...for the men
they must stave it back (else it devours them)
anywho going with the flow is where i was going with this response. you are awakening a higher consciousness and allowing that Godself to act through
you (this is in fact your own Godself taking it's proper place)...all acts are divine all acts are sacred.
"And you who seek to know Me, know that the seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless you know the Mystery: for if that which you seek, you
find not within yourself, you will never find it without.
For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I am That which is attained at the end of desire"
