I was listening to a talk by Nayaswami Jaya on the Holy Science. He mentions that as we merge into Om we begin to manifest rather than reflect the light. I am not quite sure what this means. Would you please explain this a little more? Thank you and blessings.

John, think of the difference between the sun and the moon. The sun is a source of light, while the moon only reflects it.
We might be joyful, wise, inspired or loving. In that case we reflect Divine consciousness. But when we have become the Light, when we have become enlightened, we ARE the Light.
In both cases, we are that already but in our egos we are not yet identified with our innate Divine nature. Thus, we only partially reflect that nature, indeed mostly block it.
When the ego merges back into the soul, only Light remains. This is our true nature.
I hope this helps, blessings,
