As soon as you feel sad, irritated or in a bad mood, do something about it.

Try your best to extricate yourself from these states of darkness by lighting the lamps the Creator has placed within you – all kinds of lamps: large, small, and coloured.

You may ask how you are to go about lighting these lamps. Very simply, just as you would in your home.

Your home is wired up to electricity from the mains and when you want to bring some light into the room, you turn on a switch. Well, inwardly you possess a similar system, which could be said to tap into the cosmic mains, in other words God.

In the physical world you have a switch, which you have to turn on; in the psychic world, all you need is thought to turn on the lights, and you do this by concentrating on the Lord, the Light of all Lights, as you think of lighting lamps in the whole of your being. But do not stop once some lamps have been lit; continue and others will come alight too, until in the end there will be a true illumination.
