All of what is is always becoming more of itself. And us, as expressions of everything, embodying everything, are therefor always becoming more of ourselves.
Is trauma light? No. But neither is Michelangelo’s David. These created experiences (also manifestations of degrees of light) were generated from people and have levels of alignment with light but are not in and of themselves light. They may inspire in us more or less knowing of ourselves as light but are not light themselves. Again, light here is actually referring to consciousness, not physical light.
