The “Experiment with Light” is a Quaker discipline that helps people deepen their spiritual lives by trying out what it means to “wait in the Light” as early Quakers did.
The meditation can be separated into four main steps with an invitation first to BE STILL:
1) Mind the Light (pay attention to what’s going on inside you, particularly where there’s something that makes you feel uncomfortable)
2) Open your heart to the truth (don’t run away from anything that’s difficult or that you don’t want to face, but keep a little distance from it: ‘be still and cool in thy mind’)
3) Wait in the Light (be patient, let the Light show you what is really going on, ask questions if what is being offered to you isn’t clear or you want to know more, and wait for the answers to come, don’t try to explain)
4) Submit (accept and welcome the information or images, and the insights, dreams and perceptions that may come later, and allow them to show the truth)
Experiment with Light is a simple but powerful meditation, which can be searching and transformative. It helps us to really know ourselves.
