In the presence of illusion, Truth still exists.
But when Truth shatters illusion, no trace of illusion remains.
When you turn off the light in a room, the lamp is still there.
The electricity to light the lamp still flows to it, but it is cut off.
When you flip the switch and turn the light on,
the darkness vanishes and no trace of it remains.
Darkness (the absence of Love, Light, Truth) is an illusion
created by the Mind that "flips the switch" and "turns off the lamp".
But the Source of Light, which is What You Are, is still there.
You are not the lamp, and you are not the Mind,
You are the Source that created both of them.
