Lesson Description

In this lesson, Michael reveals that the Light is omnipresent, existing constantly - here and now - and one does not need to create or manifest Light but rather create the proper vessel in which to capture that Light. As Michael expounds upon how we create this vessel, he also delves deeper into the concept of "love your neighbor as yourself" and unearths an even more important and profound lesson therein.
