One bright infinite light

From the June 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

It’s been said that the sun was shining one day when all of a sudden there was a commotion on earth. A large number of animals were yelling about how they had found darkness in a cave.

The sun, being curious, asked, “What is darkness?” One of the bears blurted out, “You don’t know what darkness is?” A rabbit yelled, “Follow me and I’ll show you,” and hopped toward the cave. 

When the rabbit dashed in the cave, followed by the other animals, with the sun right behind them, do you know what they found? Light. Wherever the sun looked, it saw light. The brightness of its own being was all that it could see.
